On Friday, the staff of Daisuke Aizawa's The Eminence in Shadow (Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute!) television anime unveiled more cast members as well as the composers of the anime's closing theme song. All of the recently revealed cast members portray pupils at the Midgar Royal Spellsword Academy:
Saya Aizawa as Sherry Barnett
Haruka Shiraishi as Rose Oriana
Rina Hidaka as Claire Kagenou
The light novels and their manga adaptation were published under license by Yen Press. According to the first volume:
Cid never wanted to be the main character or the antagonist, not even in a previous existence. He would rather play a supporting role until it's appropriate to expose his mastermind status, or at the very least, do the next best thing and pretend to be one! And now that he has been resurrected into a new universe, he is prepared to create the ideal circumstances for fully achieving his aspirations. With the help of his vivid imagination, Cid fictitiously enlists new members for his group and creates an elaborate history about a pernicious cult they must destroy. As chance would have it, these fictitious foes end up becoming the real deal-and everyone knows the truth but him!
