The Eminence in Shadow Synopsis:
Minoru Kagenou has been obsessed with becoming as strong as possible for as long as he can remember, which has led him to engage in all manner of rigorous training. This wish, however, is not motivated by a desire to be noticed by others; rather, Minoru does everything in his power to blend in with the crowd. So, during the day, he pretends to be a completely normal student, but at night, he arm himself with a crowbar and ruthlessly thrashes local biker gangs. Minoru’s ambitions appear to be dashed when he is involved in a truck accident. In his final moments, he bemoans his powerlessness—no matter how hard he trained, he couldn’t overcome his human limitations.
Instead of dying, Minoru reawakens in another world as Cid, the second child of the noble Kagenou family, in a world where magic is commonplace. With the power he craved finally at his disposal, he adopts the moniker “Shadow” and establishes Shadow Garden: a group whose sole purpose is to combat the enigmatic Cult of Diablos, an organization created entirely in Cid’s imagination. However, as Shadow Garden grows in size and influence, it becomes clear that the Cult of Diablos is not as fictitious as Cid had intended.
