Sinopsis de Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute!

Big heroes and diabolical villains are the kind of characters that people long to be, but this is not the case with Cid Kagenou. He aspires to become the mastermind behind it all, pulling the strings and making his machinations propel the entire story. In his previous life in Japan he could not achieve his goals, but now, reborn in a world of magic, he will show the true eminence of the shadow!

While Cid pretends to be just another filler character, he recruits members of his (fake) “Shadow Garden” organization, with the goal of ending a mysterious cult lurking in the shadows. His (fake) organization against the disgusting (but surprisingly real) Cult of Diabolos.
