Description : Just like how everyone adored heroes in their childhood, a certain young man adored those powers hidden in shadows. After hiding his strength and living the mediocre life of a mob character by day while undergoing frenzied training by night, he finally reincarnates into a different world and gains ultimate power. The young man who is only playing at being a power in the shadows, his misunderstanding subordinates, and a giant organization in the shadows that gets trampled….. This is the story of a young boy who had adored powers in shadows possibly eventually reigning over the world of shadows in another world.
We have seen side characters explain about circumstances and what they need to do to protagonists but this one here is way different. a normal school boy in search of power to be a phantom character and meets demise by his greed and reincarnated as a baby in different world with magic.
He doesn’t have any understanding for any of his morale and destiny he is a blind man on track to be a eminence of shadow he makes up various things to makes thing little be cinematic. he works hard in background and display great result as shadow but his mob character makes up for all this ruckus and gives an vibe to this manga. His stance on not to be outstanding is outstanding.
An isekai novel with an overpowered protagonists who acts as an mob character. It lacks none but an extravagant ecchi scene Oh! wait the author makes it up with an unimaginable humour with a harem of girls, Yes a group of Seven elves becomes his companion in shadows after he saves a possessed elf girl and it become seven From alpha to epsilon. yup! he named them on Greek letters together he forms a shadow garden ( common he has to be better on picking names).
To cid (MC) he is uttering some nonsense to make a play as shadow and the shadow garden are trying to play along since he saved their lives. But in truth all that nonsense is already an reality on that world only he doesn’t know that, It’s like he has chosen for this world. The tragedies that besiege him are entangled with one and another that gives an sense of excitement when revealed to the readers. He is powerful but his action doesn’t have any hidden agenda as believed by his subordinates yet they are blind to their saviour’s non-hidden agenda actions which makes it a perfect piece of comedy.
Overall verdict: villain who saves the world an controversial irony with lots of humour.
