The Eminence in Shadow which is also known as ‘Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute‘ in Japanese is a popular comedy-action series. It follows Cid Kagenou who is Chuuni, which is a character trait just like tsundere used in Japanese media used to describe early teens who have delusions of grandeur and have convinced themselves they have hidden knowledge or secret powers.

However, in this story’s case, it is the exact opposite. The main character thinks he’s just playing at being chuunibyou, but actually, it’s all real, and everyone else around knows it’s real, but only he doesn’t know that it’s real. And because he’s pretending like it’s real, nobody knows that he doesn’t know that it’s real so nobody tells him that it’s real.

The story follows a High-schooler in modern-day Japan who desires to be a mastermind who exerts power from the shadows, but in the process of training, gets hit by a truck and dies. He is reborn in a fantasy world as Cid Kagenou, where he maintains a perfectly mediocre appearance so as to not stand out and pursue his dream of manipulating from the shadows. One day, he stumbles upon an elven girl infected by a mysterious disease and cures her. Cid makes up a story, explaining this world is secretly run by the Cult of Diablos, and his secret organization, “Shadow Garden”, are the only ones that can fight them.

The elven girl, now named Alpha, joins this organization and begins recruiting new members. However, the stories Cid made up were actually true, but he believes it to be a total delusion. Cid continues fighting the Cult of Diablos under the alias “Shadow”, completely unaware that he is involved in a complicated power struggle.

There are lots of things that make “The Lord’s Coins Aren’t Decreasing?!” my favourite regression manhwa. First, the Main character Aaron is not a Hero and is not even try to become one. In fact, he is more of an Anti-Hero and at times a straight-up villain if it benefits his cause. Moreover, it has a whole unique premise with how he obtains more power and doesn’t become overpowered in one go but slowly gains his power and the trust of his kingdom.

However, he had no talent in politics, economy, or knightship, and as a result, he loses the favour of his family, knights, and the people of his kingdom. As a last resort, he trades all of his fortune for a mystical artifact that allows him to trade items between different dimensions.

Just when he thought he could make everything right, he is assassinated by his childhood friend Kuntz. But he is brought back to his younger self thanks to an item he deemed as useless. Now armed with his past knowledge, Aaron begins to amass coins while gaining powerful abilities and climbing up the ranks of the interdimensional trading markets to exact his revenge.

This dream sparks something in Young Lord and his body craves to wield a sword.

There are some genuinely positive aspects to this manhwa. Like the fact that the main character, Irene, isn’t just instantly made overpowered and that we actually get to see their progression from weak to strong. And I appreciate the fact that the antagonists don’t come across as one-dimensional baddies with an irrational hatred for Irene and are instead shown to be generally relatable people with their own struggles. It’s also nice how the story will be told from varying perspectives, including those of passing side characters. And the sword slashes and fight choreographies during the duels are pretty.
