What Is The Possible Storyline Of The Eminence in Shadow Season 2?
The series’ first season was based on the first two volumes of the light novel series. There are currently 1 to 6 volumes of Eminence in Shadow. And season 2 will resume from the third volume, the “Lawless City Incident and Corporate Alliance Conflict.” The story revolves around Minoru Kagenou, who craves strength and trains himself to achieve his goals. He takes the disguise of an ordinary student in the daytime, and at night, he fearlessly crushes biker gangs. But after a truck accident, his fate changed.
Minoru ended up in a parallel universe where his identity is Cid Kagenõ, the second child of the powerful Kagenō family. He is more powerful than ever and can switch to the identity of Shadow. Cid is now the founder of Shadow Garden and is desperate to win over the mysterious Cult of Diablos.
In Eminence in Shadow season 2, fans will find numerous new characters such as the Spirit Fox Yukime, Ole, the legendary vampire hunter Mary, and Blood Queen Elisabeth. It ultimately depends on how many volumes the showrunners want to cover for the second season to get more details about the expected plotline. If the creators plan to cover the fourth volume, we might ride Cid and Beta’s journey to post-apocalyptic Japan. There has yet to be an official confirmation about delving into the fourth volume.
