Here’s a whopper of a title to kick off your Tuesday morning: The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat. The light novel series by Rui Tsukiyo is officially getting an anime adaptation, with SILVER LINK and Studio Palette set to adapt the series with director Masafumi Tamura (The Misfit of Demon King Academy) at the helm.
Katsuhiko Takayama (ALDNOAH.ZERO) is on series composition and scripts for the adaptation along with Eri Nagata (Blade and Soul) adapting Reia’s original character designs. The cast so far has Kenji Akabane in the lead as Lugh, Reina Ueda as Dia, Yuki Takada as Tarte, and Shino Shimoji as Maaha.
Yen Press publishes the light novels in English and describes them like so:
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?
The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat is currently planned for a July 2021 premiere.
