HIDIVE describes the story:

Some people just aren’t suited to playing the part of the flashy, in-your-face hero or the dastardly, mustache-twirling villain with larger-than-life panache. Instead, they operate in the shadows and pull the strings of society through wit and cleverness. That’s the role Cid wants to play when he’s transported to another world. Cid spins a yarn or three and becomes the unlikely leader of the underground Shadow Garden organization that fights against a menacing cult (which he totally made up). However, there’s a catch even his wild imagination didn’t see coming: the cult he concocted actually exists, and they’re beyond displeased that his power fantasy just got in the way of their evil plans!


Kazuya Nakanishi (chief animation director for ) is directing the anime at Nexus (, ). Makoto Iino (, ) is adapting Tōzai‘s original character designs for animation. Kanichi Katou (, ) is overseeing the series scripts. Kenichiro Suehiro is composing the music.

Yen Press licensed both the light novels and the manga adaptation.

Aizawa began serializing the story on the “Shōsetsuka ni Narō” (Let’s Become Novelists) website in May 2018, and Kadokawa began publishing the story in physical volumes with art by Tōzai, beginning with the first volume in November 2018. Anri Sakano launched the manga adaptation in Kadokawa‘s magazine in December 2018. Seta U launched a spinoff manga titled Shadow Gaiden (The Eminence in Shadow – Shadow Side Story) in in July 2019.

: Master of Garden game launched for iOS, Android, and PC in November 2022. Crunchyroll Games released the game in English.
