The official synopsis for season 2 is as follows:
Deep within the Lawless City lies the Blood Queen, a Progenitor Vampire, slumbering in her coffin for many moons. Cid, an expert at getting himself into trouble, should know better than to pursue her…But he’s desperate for a piece of the action.
It’s time for him to shed his daytime persona and assume the role of Shadow! However, it appears that he is not the only one who has had this thought. Soon after, he discovers that the Lawless City’s three rulers—Juggernaut the Tyrant, Yukime the Spirit Fox, and Crimson the vampire—are all on his tail.
To make matters worse, the Shadow Garden descends on the scene as the hour of the Blood Queen’s awakening approaches…
The first season of The Eminence in Shadow premiered on October 5, 2022, and lasted 20 episodes. The anime is based on Daisuke Aizawa’s isekai light novel series, which began in 2018 and has five volumes as of December 2022 and is published by KADOKAWA.
