Synopsis of Kage neither Jitsuryokusha nor Naritakute!

Great heroes and diabolical villains are the kind of characters people crave, but that’s not the case with Cid Kagenou. He strives to become the mastermind behind everything, pull the strings and get his machinations to advance the whole 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 pretending to be just another filling character, Cid recruits members of his (fake) organization “Shadow Garden” with the aim of ending a mysterious cult that lurks in the shadow. His (wrong) organization against the disgusting (but surprisingly real) Diabolos cult.
