Great heroes and diabolical villains are the type of character that people want to be, but this is not the case of Cid Kagenou. He aspires to become the brain behind everything, pushing the cords and making his machinations to propel all of history. In his previous life in Japan he could not achieve his goals, but now, reborn in a world of magic, he will show him the true eminence of shadow! While Cid pretends to be just a pretentious character, he recruits members of his (fake) organization “Shadow Garden”, with the goal of bringing down a mysterious cult that spits out the shadows. His (fake) organization against the disgusting (but surprisingly real) Culto dos Diabolos.
