The Eminence in Shadow

陰の実力者になりたくて!Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute!


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!

    1. It’s been delayed to November 10, at least… Check the sidebar, the latest release dates are there (usually updated at the start of month)

  1. First thank you for sharing.
    Second, can’t believe they translated makenshi as dark knights, when its obviously magic knight.
    And third, can’t wait to read more of this!!!!

    1. Not sure what kanji they’re using, but the Ma in makenshi can be the character for dark/demon/magic, they’re all pronounced as “ma”. Kenshi just meaning knight.

      So without seeing the kanji used in the original work, they technically didn’t translate anything wrong.
