Will there be a Third Season for The Eminence in Shadow?
“The Eminence in Shadow” is adapted from the light novel series written by Aizawa Daisuke and illustrated by Touzai. The first season drew inspiration from the initial two volumes of the light novel, incorporating a significant amount of anime-only content.
Moving on to the second season it covered approximately 1.5 volumes of the light novel (the third and half of the fourth). Similar to the first season, a substantial portion consisted of anime-original content. As of now, six light novel volumes have been published.
Looking ahead, the upcoming movie is expected to delve into the next arc of the series, specifically the second half of the fourth volume of the light novel. Given this information, ample source material seems available to create a third season. Fans can remain hopeful for further series developments based on the light novels’ existing content.
The Eminence in Shadow: Lost Echoes Details:
Since its debut season, “The Eminence in Shadow” has been available on the streaming platform HIDIVE.
As for the film’s streaming plans, the production committee has not yet disclosed whether it will have an initial theatrical release or be directly accessible for streaming on platforms like HIDIVE, Netflix, or Crunchyroll.
According to HIDIVE, the anime series follows the story of Cid, who doesn’t aspire to be a conspicuous hero or a notorious villain. He prefers to work in the shadows, manipulating society through intelligence and cunning. Transported to another world with magical powers and a vivid imagination, he establishes Shadow Garden—an underground organization fighting an imaginary evil cult he created.
However, unbeknownst to Cid, the recruits of Shadow Garden take his every fabrication seriously. To complicate matters further, the “fake” cult he invented turns out to be real, and they are not pleased that his power fantasy has interfered with their plans for ultimate power in “The Eminence in Shadow.”
