Daisuke Aizawa’s isekai fantasy light novel series anime">The Eminence in Shadow (Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute!) has announced its anime adaptation. Aside from the announcement, the cast for the leading characters have also been announced, and we have some big names. Before we proceed with the cast, here’s a description on the series and its history.The Eminence in Shadow began serialization in May 2018 on the novel publishing website  Shōsetsuka ni Narō. It was then picked up by Enterbrain, and published four volumes. Currently, there are six volumes in total. The light novel and manga is being licensed in the United States by Yen Press.

The story follows a young man with a desire to become a shadowbroker, a person who always works away from the public eye. In order to achieve his dream, he trained his body in whatever martial art he can possibly come across. But in one such training session, he came across magic. Except it wasn’t magic, but the headlights of a car. He died in that encounter, but was reincarnated in another world as Cid Kagenou, the son of a noble. His desire to become a shadowbroker persisted, so he continues with his training to achieve that goal.

The Main Characters in The Eminence in Shadow

Cid Kagenou (Voiced by Seiichiro Yamashita)

Cid is the lead character, and is of noble birth. But he is also the secret leader of the an organization called the Shadow Garden. The organization began with a make-believe mission of fighting against the Cult of Diabolos. However, they realize that the Cult actually exists, and Cid’s operations collide with that, bringing in new problems.

Alpha (Voiced by Asami Seto)

Alpha is an elven girl, and known as the First of the Shadow Garden. Cid found her on the street suffering from Demon possession and cured her by conducting various experiments. As gratitude, she pledged her loyalty to him, and helped him recruit six other main members so that they can properly pursue the Cult of Diabolos.

Beta (Voiced by Inori Minase)

Beta was found by Alpha in her quest for teammates, and became the second member of the Shadow Garden. She is also an elf, with an avid interest for journaling their daily exploits. She writes everything in ‘the war chronicles of Shadow-sama’ and mostly sings Cid’s praises.

Gamma becomes the third member of Shadow Garden. Due to her weak physical capabilities, she stays away from anything related to combat. But she more than makes up for it with her genius intellect. She created the Mitsugoshi Company, which became the provider for Shadow Garden’s operations. She created it from an idea Cid gave about the items that were available on Earth, which she recreated and started selling for great profits.

Delta (Voiced by Fairouz Ai)

Delta is a beast-kin girl, and is a valuable fighter for the team. She doesn’t possess refined sword skills or magical abilities, but comes with a great deal of raw power and violence.

Only Cid and Alpha beat her in strength, so she has only acknowledged them till now.

Epsilon (Voiced by Hisako Kanemoto)

Epsilon is also an elf, with very refined magical capabilities. She also has a haughty nature, and is the cause of arguments among the group. She can bring out the best in the slime bodysuits that the Shadow Garden members wear.
