The trailer centers on Cid as he begins his classes at the Midgar Royal Spellsword Academy along with his sister. Cid is determined to make the perfect “wrong moves” in order to become a “mob character” (someone who is typically ignored and remains in the shadows). However, Cid’s plans go awry when he is forced to confess to a girl, who is way out of his league, as part of a punishment game, and she unexpectedly decides to accept his confession.

Princess Alexia of Midgar is more than just a pretty face, however, and a trailer has been released to give you a sneak peek into the inner workings of her clever and perhaps devious mind.

Princess Alexia of Midgar will be played by Kana Hanazawa. Alexia aspires to become a great swordswoman like her sister Iris, but she just can’t manage to reach or surpass her sister. When she spars against Cid she notices that their sword styles are very similar. They’re both living in the shadow of someone stronger than themselves.

However, Alexia notices one striking difference between Cid’s swordsmanship and her own. Alexia is determined to discover the secret to his strength.

What is the plot of Eminence in Shadow?

Great heroes and diabolical villains are the types of imaginary characters people dream of being, but not Cid Kagenou. He longs to become the true mastermind behind it all, pulling the strings, and having his machinations drive the entire story. In his previous life in modern-day Japan, he was not able to achieve his goals. But now, he’s been reborn into a world of magic, and is determined to show the true eminence of shadow!

Cid pretends to be an average mob character (minor character) and creates a fake organization, which he names Shadow Garden. Armed with his overactive imagination, Cid makes up a whole backstory about an evil cult lurking in the shadows that need to be taken down and starts to recruit members for the cause.

Interestingly enough, these imaginary adversaries turn out to be the real deal and call themselves the Diabolos Cult. Only Cid knows the truth – that everything was supposed to be a joke, and that their organization is fake. But if a fake organization manages to save the world from an evil cult is it really so imaginary?
