Ladies and gentlemen, it looks like we are getting yet another new isekai anime! Several bookstores’ Twitter Pages have released photos of the upcoming volume 4 of Daisuke Aizawa’s The Eminence in Shadow light novel series. There, they show new sleeves which announce that the series is receiving an anime adaptation.
Tsutaya Wing Town Okazaki branch and Animate Koufu were the ones to release photos of the anime announcement sleeves. Unfortunately, they did not reveal any further details yet. Right now, we still don’t know whether this new anime will be a TV series, movie, web anime, or a Netflix series.
Here’s how Yen Press, which releases the light novels in English, describes the story:
Shadowbrokers are those who go unnoticed, posing as unremarkable people, when in truth, they control everything from behind the scenes. Sid wants to be someone just like that more than anything, and something as insignificant as boring reality isn’t going to get in his way! He trains in secret every single night, preparing for his eventual rise to power—only to denied his destiny by a run-of-the-mill (yet deadly) traffic accident. But when he wakes up in a another world and suddenly finds himself at the head of an actual secret organization doing battle with evil in the shadows, he’ll finally get a chance to act out all of his delusional fantasies!
The light novels also have a manga adaptation by Anri Sakano, as well as a side story titled Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute! Shadow Gaiden (The Eminence in Shadow – Shadow Side Story) by Seta U.
