Source Availability for “The Eminence in Shadow” Season 3
“The Eminence in Shadow” is based on the light novel series written by Aizawa Daisuke and illustrated by Touzai. The first season was based on the first two volumes of the light novel series, as a lot of anime-only content was included.
The second season covered 1.5 volumes of the light novel (3rd+half of 4th) as anime-only content was also a big part of this season. Six light novel volumes have been published so far in the light novel.
The movie will likely be covering the next arc of the series, which comprises the second-half of the fourth volume of the light novel series.
So, there is enough source material for a third season.
Eminence in Shadow: Lost Echoes Streaming Details
Since its first season, “The Eminence in Shadow” is available on the streaming platform HIDIVE.
Regarding film streaming, the production committee has yet to announce whether it will be released in theater first or will directly be available for streaming on Platforms like HIDIVE, Netflix or Crunchyroll.
HIDIVE describes the anime series as follows:
Cid doesn’t want to be a flashy hero or a dastardly villain. He wants to operate in the shadows and pull the strings of society through wit and cleverness. So, when he’s isekai’d to another world armed with magic powers (and an overactive imagination), he forms Shadow Garden, an underground organization that fights an evil cult he totally made up.
But while Cid happily roleplays his favorite antihero tropes, little does he know Shadow Garden’s recruits treat his every lie as gospel, and worse yet? That “fake” cult is actually real, and they’re not happy his power fantasy just impeded their plan to gain ultimate power in THE EMINENCE IN SHADOW!
