Synopsis for The Eminence in Shadow
For as long as he can remember, Minoru Kagenou has been obsessed with becoming as strong as possible, which has led him to undergo all kinds of rigorous training. However, this desire is not born out of a desire to be recognized by others, rather Minoru tries his best to blend in with the crowd.
So, while during the day he pretends to be an ordinary student, at night he arms himself with a crowbar and mercilessly beats up the local biker gangs. However, when Minoru is in a truck accident, his ambitions seem to suddenly end.
In his final moments, he laments his helplessness: no matter how hard he trained, there was nothing he could do to overcome his human limitations.
But instead of dying, Minoru awakens as Cid, the second son of the noble Kagenou family, in another world where magic is commonplace.
With the power he longed for finally within his grasp, he calls himself “Shadow” and founds Shadow Garden: a group whose sole purpose is to combat the enigmatic Cult of Diablos, an organization born from Cid’s imagination.
However, as the Shadow Garden grows in both membership and influence, it becomes increasingly apparent that the Cult of Diablos is not as fictional as Cid made it out to be.
