One of the many pieces of news around light novel adaptations from Kadokawa’s Light Novel Expo this weekend had the first key visual being revealed for The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat. The anime adaptation of Rui Tsukiyo and illustrator Reia’s light novel series is set to kick off its broadcast in Japan this July, and you can get a taste for what’s to come in the striking visual.
The World’s Finest Assassin anime has Masafumi Tamura (The Misfit of Demon King Academy) directing at SILVER LINK and Studio Palette, with Kenji Akabane in the lead as Lugh alongside Reina Ueda as Dia, Yuki Takada as Tarte, and Shino Shimoji as Maaha.
Here’s the full visual:
The series comes out in English via Yen Press, and here’s their synopsis:
The greatest assassin on Earth knew only how to live as a tool for his employers—until they stopped letting him live. Reborn by the grace of a goddess into a world of swords and sorcery, he’s offered a chance to do things differently this time around, but there’s a catch…He has to eliminate a super-powerful hero who will bring about the end of the world unless he is stopped. Now known as Lugh Tuatha Dé, the master assassin certainly has his hands full, particularly because of all the beautiful girls who constantly surround him. Lugh may have been an incomparable killer, but how will he fare against foes with powerful magic?
