Sul sito ufficiale di “The Eminence in Shadow“, opera tratta dalla light novel di Daisuke Aizawa, è stato pubblicato un video promozionale e una key visual che annunciano l’adattamento animato dell’opera, previsto per il 2022.
Trama: Shadowbrokers are those who go unnoticed, posing as unremarkable people, when in truth, they control everything from behind the scenes. Sid wants to be someone just like that more than anything, and something as insignificant as boring reality isn’t going to get in his way! He trains in secret every single night, preparing for his eventual rise to power—only to denied his destiny by a run-of-the-mill (yet deadly) traffic accident. But when he wakes up in a another world and suddenly finds himself at the head of an actual secret organization doing battle with evil in the shadows, he’ll finally get a chance to act out all of his delusional fantasies!
L’opera sarà prodotta dallo studio Nexus.
Kazuya Nakanishi ricoprirà il ruolo di regista, la sceneggiatura sarà affidata a Kanichi Katou (Black Clover, Those Snow White Notes), Makoto Iino (Demon Lord, Retry!) si occuperà del charcter design.
