The Eminence in Shadow Anime Storyline

Even in his previous life, Cid did not dream of becoming a protagonist or a boss. He prefers to keep a low profile as a minor character until it’s time to show he’s a mastermind … or at least do the next best thing – pretend to be one!

And now that he’s been reborn in another world, he’s ready to create the perfect conditions to live out his dreams to the fullest. Using his overactive imagination, Cid jokingly recruits members for his organization and invents an entire backstory about an evil cult they must bring down.

As luck would have it, these imaginary enemies turn out to be real enemies – and everyone but him knows the truth!
