After weeks of seeing Crunchyroll hype of this series, I decided to check out The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat!
“I’m going to live for myself!”
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?
Truth be told, I was about to drop this anime. The first few episodes weren’t doing it for me. It’s felt like just another isekai with an OP protagonist, very generic. I think however after episode 5 I started to see the appeal. The main protagonist Lugh, is different than other Isekai main characters. He’s not a loser neet who spent his whole life playing games. He’s someone of notoriety, who is hired for his expertise and has been killing for a living. Given his history and line of work, his mentality is completely different, and that leads to him being more goal-driving. He’s also a “no-nonsense”, non-pervy type of character which makes following him that much more interesting.
Then there’s fact that he’s not the only guy that got hurled into a new world, apparently, there were hundreds before him, each tasked with killing the “hero” of the world. So far Lugh is the only one confirmed to be taking the task seriously but who knows, they might switch up on us, and we find out that there are more people actually training to kill the hero too. That would make for an interesting twist. A bit of competition to see to get to the Hero first. Or maybe lure decides that he was to save the hero, and now faces off against other isekai warriors to protect the hero. However, for now, I’m more curious to see just how strong this Hero person is, and the ways Lugh will take him or her down.
Overall, it’s not bad but I hope the “uniqueness” of this isekai anime picks up soon!
