“The Eminence in Shadow.”

Not the main character, and not the last boss. The one who lurks in the shadows of the storyline and holds all the power, hiding his true abilities by acting like a side character. The boy who longs to be a 'Shadowbroker' lives an unobtrusive life as a side character, training to gain magic power until he's killed in an accident and reincarnated into another world.

Reborn as Cid Kagenou, the boy decides to enjoy himself in this other world with a made-up scenario about "the Eminence in Shadow." He starts fooling around with secret maneuvers against an evil cult that he born from his imagination... and it turns out that the cult really does exist! The girls he took on as his subordinates on a whim began worshiping Cid as Shadow, and before he knows it, Cid has become a true "Eminence in Shadow." Before long, Cid—along with his mysterious group the Shadow Garden—will destroy the darkness of his new world.

A boy who dreamed of becoming The Eminence in Shadow meets an untimely death and is reborn in another world as Cid Kagenou.

In his new world, Cid has decided to enjoy his Eminence in Shadow shtick, playing the role of Shadow--he who lurks in the shadows in order to hunt the shadows--and with the girls who faithfully play along, he builds Shadow Garden, an organization that fights against a dark cult.

All of this is the product of his fantasies...or so he thought. But the evil Cult of Diablos does, in fact, exist, and though Cid doesn't know it, Shadow Garden carries on the fight against this darkness of the world.

The story now takes us to the Lawless City, with its three rulers: The Blood Queen, the Spirit Fox, and the Tyrant. It's survival of the fittest in this metropolis overrun with ne'er-do-wells.

Cid is dragged here by his sister Claire, who has come to defeat the Blood Queen of the vampires, and his heart thrills at this unique opportunity to show off his Eminence in Shadow moves, but....

A plot centering around the Blood Queen is set in motion, and the three rulers of Lawless City come together in battle. Claire gets caught up in the fray, and Shadow Garden has its own business in Lawless City. Amid the extreme chaos, Cid decides to work behind the scenes as Shadow.

The Red Moon is rising. The hour of awakening is near!
