The Eminence in Shadow Season 2 is Back & We Have All The Details!

2 months ago By AI Smith

The highly successful isekai franchise, The Eminence in Shadow, is set to make its comeback with the second season. Originating as a popular light novel series, the first anime adaptation captivated audiences when it premiered in Japan in October 2022 and quickly gained international streaming rights through HIDIVE. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the continuation of the series, and their anticipation is about to be rewarded with the announcement of a second season, accompanied by an exciting new trailer.

The Charismatic World of The Eminence in Shadow

The Eminence in Shadow, written by Daisuke Aizawa and illustrated by Tōzai, is a Japanese light novel series that takes a refreshing approach to the isekai genre. It injects a healthy dose of humor and refuses to take itself too seriously. At the center of the story is the protagonist, Cid Kageno, a classic overpowered and emotionless isekai character with a twist—he has no desire to be the protagonist. Cid’s dream is to be the enigmatic “Eminence in Shadow,” the mastermind behind the scenes. To achieve this, he assumes the role of a weak “mob” character while meticulously crafting a hilarious persona. The first season of The Eminence in Shadow received high praise from fans and critics alike, raising expectations for the upcoming second season.

Latest Updates on The Eminence in Shadow Season 2

Premiere Announcement: On June 6th, 2023, HiDive revealed that The Eminence in Shadow Season 2 would premiere at the 2023 Anime Expo on Saturday, July 1st. Notably, the event featured a dual world premiere, showcasing both the subbed and dubbed versions. This gesture by Kadokawa demonstrates their recognition of the show’s sizable Western fanbase, potentially paving the way for similar events in the future.

Release Date and Trailer

The second season of The Eminence in Shadow is slated for an October 2023 release. However, fans will be treated to a special premiere episode at Anime Expo 2023, with the subbed version debuting on July 1st and the dubbed version on July 4th. While it remains uncertain if the debut episode will be available on HiDive after the event, a captivating trailer was released on May 28th. The trailer offers a glimpse of the Lawless City, the setting for the upcoming season, and introduces new major characters such as the three rulers of the city and the vampire hunter Mary. Additionally, it teases Cid’s goals in the city and reveals the significant role his sister Claire will play.

 Season 2 Story Details

The Lawless City Adventure

Season 2 follows Cid and the Shadow Garden as they embark on a mission to the Lawless City. Based on the third volume of the light novel series, the story unveils the presence of the Blood Queen, a powerful Progenitor Vampire, who has been dormant for an extended period. Despite the potential danger, Cid cannot resist the allure of this encounter and sheds his daytime persona to assume the role of Shadow. However, he soon discovers that he is not the only one with this idea. The three rulers of the Lawless City, Juggernaut the Tyrant, Yukime the Spirit Fox, and Crimson the vampire, are all in pursuit of him. To complicate matters further, the Shadow Garden joins the fray as the awakening of the Blood Queen draws near.

Production Details for The Eminence in Shadow Season 2

The production for The Eminence in Shadow Season 2 is in the hands of Studio Nexus, the same studio responsible for the first season. The chief animation director for the anime is Kazuya Nakanishi (known for Darwin’s Game). Makoto Lino will adapt the original character designs by Tōzai for animation. Kato Kanichi (of Black Clover fame) oversees the scripts, while Kenichiro Suehiro composes the music.

Voice Cast and Ending Theme 

The voice cast from Season 1 is set to return, and the voice actresses of the Seven Shades will perform the new ending theme song, “Darling in the Night.” The second trailer, released on May 28th, also introduced new cast members, including Tsuyoshi Koyama as Juggernaut, Shizuka Ito as Yukime, Tomokazu Sugita as Crimson, and Ai Kakuma as Mary. Information regarding the English voice dub has yet to be released, but it is likely that the Season 1 cast will reprise their roles.

Where to Watch The Eminence in Shadow Season 2
