With Yen Press having picked up the light novel series for this recently, it’s a good time to be a fan of The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in a Different World as an Aristocrat. Known as Sekai Saikō no Ansatsusha, Isekai Kizoku ni Tensei Suru in Japan, the light novel series began in 2018 and moved to print releases beginning in 2019. The series is scheduled for a July 2021 premiere
The anime adaptation has Masafumi Tamura as the director working from the scripts written and overseen by Katsujik Takayama. Eri Nagata is handling the character designs with Studio Palette and Silver Link working on the animation production.
The Japanese cast includes:
- Kenji Akabane as Lugh
- Reina Ueda as Dia
- Yūki Takada as Tarte
- Shino Shimoji as Maha
Plot Concept: When a great assassin is reborn in another world, he finds himself the heir to a long line of killers from the shadows. With both his modern-day knowledge and experience and the special magic and techniques of this new world, he could very well become the most unstoppable assassin in history…!
