Shadowbrokers are those who go unnoticed, posing as unremarkable people, when in truth, they control everything from behind the scenes. Cid wants to be someone just like that more than anything, and something as insignificant as boring reality isn't going to get in his way! He trains in secret every single night, preparing for his eventual rise to power—only to deny his destiny by a run-of-the-mill (yet deadly) traffic accident. But when he wakes up in another world and suddenly finds himself at the head of an actual secret organization doing battle with evil in the shadows, he'll finally get a chance to act out all of his delusional fantasies!

after reading the synopsis i came into this anime thinking it would be another reincarnated main character gets insane powers with no real plot. although it is a OP main character the story doesnt dissapoint. i was firstly captured by the unique story of the show as it doesnt really follow any other anime plot that ive seen. the story of a shadow organization fighting for good without wanting to be known is intriguing to me. the main character is very well done he doesnt hold back like many main characters and uses his power somewhat unrestricted. i think some of the characters in the school/army could have been done a bit better and we have yet to get a good insight onto the characters in his shadow garden but they seem to be well done as of what we've seen. i hope they dont delay the part 2 of this story since season 1 is supposed to be a part 1. I want to add that i've not read the manga so i can't talk about whether it follows it or not. but as a anime only watcher i am very pleased and hope to see the story unfold as it has been.
I read the manga about a year ago, and the anime is good. Though sometimes the animation feels lacking and cheap. But, it still retains the fun story that made the manga so popular. However I still cannot get myself to like shadow, he's treated like an ignorant doofus. I understand it's a gimmick but I believe it's not particularly well done otherwise, it's great go watch it.
What started out great quickly turned into a copycat slime/isekai copycat harem anime. What stood out at start was that mc had his own aura, he showed us how he trains and fights thugs, kidnappers etc at night as somehow who protects others in the shadow and that was the most amazin part. Next thing you know he is killed by truck kun and isekaied without an explanation of how it happened especially since mc is fast and fexiable enough to parkour on top of buildings. ANyways worst part is that the isekai starts with forshadowing of him and his group working in shadows in isekai to get rid of the corrupt. Except they are all kids/Teens and mc is only male with 20 or so females in his group, which imideitly screams HAREM. Next up MC shows OP power without training or how he got them and most of it is like the isekai slime. THen we go into typicall high school scenerio while mc hides his power to only use it in shadow. Not only is there nothing unique but the sound and voiceing dont fit at all, the animation is normal with alot of gore cut out such as smashing heads and body parts just blood sprouting out is shown when an enemy is hit. Also the animation feels a bit jarring and no world building at all to give any exposition to the art and environment. Overall it turned from such a great premise into another trashy isekai within the second half of the first episode and i do not recommend to waste time on it.
