Bernhard im Schatten (隻影のベルンハルト, Bernhard in the Shadow) is the prequel to Schwarzesmarken. Opening in the waning days of 1972, it recounts the tale of of the Bernhard siblings, Jürgen and Irisdina, and their friend, Beatrix Brehmer as they cope with relationship issues, overbearing parents, and an alien invasion. Bernhard im Schatten replaced Schwarzesmarken in Tech Gian magazine. The series is written by Hiroki Uchida and illustrated by Auru Mimizuka with character designs by CARNELIAN.
The framing device of the story is a set of tapes, hidden by Jürgen in his family's tomb to be found by a special someone (heavily implied to be Beatrix), detailing his memories and last testament. Discovered and moved to the stasi archive, these tapes are played by an unknown individual.
