Synopsis of Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute! (The Eminence in Shadow)

Great heroes and diabolical villains are the kind of characters people want to be like, but that’s not the case with Cid Kagenou. He aspires to become the mastermind behind it all, pulling the strings and making his machinations propel the story forward. In his previous life in Japan he was unable to achieve his goals, but now, reborn into a world of magic, he will show the true eminence of the shadow!

While Cid pretends to be just another character, he recruits members of his (fake) organization “Shadow Garden”, with the aim of putting an end to a mysterious cult that lurks in the shadows.
