The Eminence in Shadow (Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute!) is a Japanese light novel series by Daisuke Aizawa. Enterbrain has been serializing it with Tozai’s illustrations since 2018, and it currently has 5 volumes available. Anri Skano is also working on a manga adaptation that is being published by Kadokawa Shoten, and as of now, it has 10 volumes available. Yen Press is publishing both light novels and manga in English. The second season of the anime will adapt volume 3 of the light novel series and you can read the synopsis below:

​Deep within the Lawless City lies the Blood Queen, a Progenitor Vampire, slumbering in her coffin for many moons. An expert at landing himself in trouble, Cid should know better than to go after her…but he’s dying to get a piece of the action. It’s time he shed his daytime persona to take on the role of Shadow! It seems, however, that he’s not the only one with this idea. Soon enough, he finds the three rulers of the Lawless City—Juggernaut the Tyrant, Yukime the Spirit Fox, and Crimson the vampire—are all on his tail. To complicate things even further, the Shadow Garden descends on the scene as the hour of the Blood Queen’s awakening looms closer and closer…
