Amazon Prime’s anime series, The Eminence In Shadow, has a second season on the way. According to the show’s new trailer, it’ll premiere sometime in October and consist of 12 episodes. Last year, the first season hit screens in October and ended with a bang sometime this year in February. The Eminence In Shadow is based on a novel series by Daisuke Aizawa and illustrated by Tōzai.
The synopsis reads,
“Some people just aren’t suited to playing the part of the flashy, in-your-face hero or the dastardly, mustache-twirling villain with larger-than-life panache. Instead, they operate in the shadows and pull the strings of society through wit and cleverness. That’s the role Cid wants to play when he’s transported to another world. Cid spins a yarn or three and becomes the unlikely leader of the underground Shadow Garden organization that fights against a menacing cult (which he totally made up).
However, there’s a catch even his wild imagination didn’t see coming: the cult he concocted actually exists, and they’re beyond displeased that his power fantasy just got in the way of their evil plans!”
