The Eminence in Shadow (Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute!) has been confirmed as an anime adaptation of Daisuke Aizawa’s isekai fantasy light novel series.
Aside from the announcement, the main characters’ cast has been disclosed, and it features a number of well-known actors. Before we get into the performers, let’s take a look at the show’s history and cast.
The Eminence in Shadow was first serialised in May 2018 on Shsetsuka ni Nar, a novel publishing website.
It was purchased by Enterbrain, and four volumes were published. In total, there are six volumes. The light novel and manga have been licenced in the US by Yen Press.
The storey follows a young man who desires to be a shadow trader or someone who operates in the shadows.
In order to fulfil his passion, he trained his body in each martial method he could find. During one of these training sessions, though, he did come upon magic. But it wasn’t magic; it was the headlights of an automobile.
He died in the battle but was reincarnated in another world as Cid Kagenou, the son of a nobleman. His ambition to work as a shadow trader remained strong, so he pursued it further.
Normally, we have to wait a year after an anime is announced before we can watch it. The Eminence in Shadow, on the other hand, won’t be available until 2022.
The studio has yet to confirm a particular release date, so we’ll have to wait a little longer.
The Eminence in Shadow’s Main Characters
Cid Kagenou (Voiced by Seiichiro Yamashita)
Cid, the main character, was born a nobleman. He is, however, the Shadow Garden’s undercover boss.
The Cult of Diabolos was a fake organisation that began with the goal of combating it. They do, however, recognise that the Cult is real, and Cid’s actions collide with it, producing further complications.
Alpha (Voiced by Asami Seto)
Alpha is a female elf that goes by the name of First of the Shadow Garden. Cid found her on the street, Demonpossessed, and treated her with a variety of methods.
In exchange, she pledged her loyalty to him and helped him recruit six more crucial members so that they could properly pursue the Diabolos Cult.
Beta (Voiced by Inori Minase)
In her search for teammates, Alpha came across Beta, and she became the second member of the Shadow Garden.
She’s also an elf that likes to keep a journal of their daily exploits. She chronicles everything and mostly sings Cid’s praises in ‘the battle memoirs of Shadow-sama.’
Gamma (Voiced by Suzuko Mimori)
As the third member, Gamma joins Shadow Garden. Because of her physical limitations, she avoids anything combat-related.
Her great mind, on the other hand, compensates for it more than adequately. Shadow Garden’s operations were supplied by the Mitsugoshi Company, which she formed.
She based it on an idea Cid gave her about goods that could be discovered on Earth, which she then replicated and began selling for a profit.
Delta (Voiced by Fairouz Ai)
Delta is a beast-kin who plays an important role in the team’s battles. She lacks advanced sword skills and magical abilities, but in terms of raw power and violence, she is a force to be reckoned with.
Her beast side increased her senses, allowing her to detect scents from great distances and easily hunt targets. She has only recognised Cid and Alpha since they are stronger than her.
Epsilon (Voiced by Hisako Kanemoto)
Epsilon is a powerful elf. She has a snobby manner and is the source of the group’s quarrels. She has the capacity to enhance the slime bodysuits of the Shadow Garden members.
Zeta (Voiced by Ayaka Asai)
The sixth and last member, as well as another beast-kin, is Zeta. Normally, she gathers intelligence by travelling throughout the world.
Eta (Voiced by Reina Kondo)
Eta, the group’s scientific genius, leads the research faction and runs her own laboratory. She’s a skilled architect as well.
