Crunchyroll Games describes the series as:
“My name is Shadow. I lurk in the shadow, and hunt the shadow…”
A boy gets reincarnated as the noble house scion Cid Kagenou in a new world. He is neither a protagonist nor a last boss. He hides his powers to blend in with the mob, and manipulates the narrative from the shadows. As the self proclaimed “The eminence in the shadow”, Cid and his secret organization, “Shadow Garden,” work behind the scenes to defeat the dark Cult of Diabolos, which he totally made up. But it turns out that the cult actually exists…!
It’s a triple combo of the strongest hero, an excessive case of eighth-grader syndrome, and a seriocomedy of misunderstanding!
HIDIVE is currently streaming the anime television series, which will consist of two cours of 20 total episodes.
