The Eminence in Shadow:
Great heroes and diabolical villains are the kind of characters people yearn to be, but this is not the case with Cid Kagenou. He aspires to become the mastermind behind it all, pulling the strings and making his machinations drive the whole story. In his previous life in Japan he couldn’t achieve his goals, but now, reborn in a world of magic, he will show the true eminence of shadow! While Cid pretends to be just another filler character, he recruits members of his (fake) Shadow Garden organization, with the goal of taking down a mysterious cult that he lurks in the shadows. His (fake) organization against the disgusting (but surprisingly real) Cult of Diabolos.
