Many people dream of fame and, with ambition, they make the effort to achieve it. But there are also those who dream of doing something great but remain in the shadows so that the rest of us are in constant speculation about who this savior is. Such are the desires of the hero of the manga Rising in the Shadows, which launched in 2018. The project is an irony and caricature of other oppidan and magician stories, which is what made it popular with readers. In 2021, it was announced that the manga was getting a film adaptation, and later a release date was announced for the anime Rising in the Shadows, October 2022. Nexus Studios has already unveiled a trailer and posters for the upcoming series.
The story is about a guy named Sid. On earth, he dedicated his life to grueling training, which hardened his body and spirit. The guy became a real fighter and a pile of muscle to make a heroic deed at the right time, but soon a terrible thought caught up with him – his strength will not help against a nuclear bomb. The hero gets depressed because his efforts were in vain, and he sees the only way out in magic, which, however, does not exist in the world. But fate is an unpredictable thing and it gives the hero a chance to achieve his goal, and it will show in the anime Rising in the shadows, whose release date is scheduled for October.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
On the way back from another training session, the hero gets run over by a car and is instantly transported to a world where magic is the norm of life. He finds himself in the body of a little boy, but he remembers everything from life on earth, and he starts training again. Now he improves not only his body but also his magic skills.
The hero enrolls in a magical university but prefers not to show his true skills, as he wants to remain in the shadows. As the project progresses, viewers will see that the desire to remain hidden from prying eyes will lead to the fact that the guy becomes the lord of the underworld, and whether he will realize his dream of glory, the audience will know from the series. The release date of the anime Rising in the Shadows is set for October 2022.
The animation project was directed by Nexus Studios. This is not her first experience, but significant works on her account are not listed, but the presented trailer made fans and critics of the genre to say that the situation could change, as the presented materials look good and cause interest. It is possible that the reason for the success is the collaboration with Kan’ichi Kato, who is a rather famous screenwriter in the world of anime. The release date of the novelty is October 2022. The first season is rumored to have 12 episodes.
