The official website for the television anime adaptation of Daisuke Aizawa‘s The Eminence in Shadow (Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute!) light novel series posted the show’s teaser video (below).
A teaser visual for the anime has been released (below) as well.
Yen Press published the manga and it describes the series as thus:
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!
The staff for the project is comprised of the following individuals:
- Kazuya Nakanishi (chief animation director for Darwin’s Game), directing the anime at Nexus (Darwin’s Game, Granbelm)
- Makoto Iino (Suppose a Kid From the Last Dungeon Boonies Moved to a Starter Town, Demon Lord, Retry!), adapting Tōzai‘s original character designs for animation
- Kanichi Katou (Black Clover, Those Snow White Notes), overseeing the series scripts
Madly in love with anime and football...... it's disturbing.
