Eminence in Shadow Review — B-


This ended up being a decent show. But they really blew it with that first episode. Most people I knew dropped this show from that without even realizing it was a comedy. I don’t know what they were thinking.

Overall, even after the first episode when they did realize it was a comedy, I found the manga much more enjoyable. The anime doesn’t do justice to Cid’s character. It takes his chuuni acts too seriously and in general just isn’t as funny as the manga is.

  • Storytelling – B – Got decent after the disastrous first episode.
  • Voice – B – I do love the premise.
  • Characters – B – They’re fun.
  • Attention Grab – B – I mostly enjoyed each episode.
  • Production – B – Looks pretty good.
  • Overall – B-
