The Eminence in Shadow

Season 1, Part 1 | 10 Episodes

E1 | The Hated Classmate

Akane copes with her trauma by being popular and working hard to make people like her, but one boy in her class doesn’t care about her at all. That bothers her to no end.

E2 | Shadow Garden is Born

Reincarnated as the son of Baron Kagenou, Cid bides his time as Background Character A while preparing for the day he can finally become the Eminence in Shadow!

E3 | Fencer Ordinaire

The princess is supposed to reject the background character’s confession, not accept it — since when did Cid become a rom-com protagonist?

E4 | Sadism’s Rewards

The mistake those with power always make is believing that they are the ones in control.

E5 | I Am…

Cid is not facing a minion but a would-be Knight of the Rounds. Normally, that is cause for concern, but an atomic bomb has no reason to fear the gnashing of a lowly pest.

E6 | Pretenders

While Iris seeks a bright mind to study an artifact, Cid visits a popular store. Meanwhile, in the dark corners of the city, someone commits murders in Shadow Garden’s name!

E7 | A Fencing Tournament of Intrigue & Bloodshed

Cid gets a report from Nu about powerful cult members lurking in the Royal Capital. Too bad he’s too distracted about the upcoming fencing tournament to notice.

E8 | Dark Knight Academy Under Attack

Cid sacrificed his life to save Rose. At least, that’s what everyone thinks. Unbeknownst to anyone else, Cid survived exactly as planned, and now his counterattack can begin.

E9 | The End of a Lie

When the students fight back, Shadow Garden joins the fray as their reinforcements. Amidst the chaos, Cid confronts the Gaunt Knight.
