About the Series

The Eminence in Shadow (Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute!, To Be a Power in the Shadows!) is an epic comedy action isekai about Cid Kagenou, a boy who dreams to enact his powers over the world while lurking in the shadows. With his organization, Shadow Garden, he forges a path through the darkness, all while remaining oblivious to the truth he's uncovered! The series is written by Daisuke Aizawa and originally illustrated by Touzai.
It began as a web novel posted on Syosetu in 2018 and was published as a light novel by Kadokawa, later licensed by English publisher YenPress.
The series has since been adapted into a manga, anime and game.

Synopsis

One big fat lie and a few twisted truths.

Even in his past life, Cid's dream wasn't to become a protagonist or a final boss. He'd rather lie low as a minor character until it's prime time to reveal he's a mastermind...or at least, do the next best thing-pretend to be one! And now that he's been reborn into another world, he's ready to set the perfect conditions to live out his dreams to the fullest. Armed with his overactive imagination, Cid jokingly recruits members to his organization and makes up a whole backstory about an evil cult that they need to take down. Well, as luck would have it, these imaginary adversaries turn out to be the real deal-and everyone knows the truth but him!
