On the brink of extinction, mankind has downsized and now solely resides in the city-state of Flandore, living in cities encased by glass domes. Beyond the domes exist vicious lycanthropes who thrive in the darkness; among the citizens inside, a clear distinction between the nobility and commoners is in place. The blood of nobles enables them to utilize mana, granting them abilities that exceed human limits and greatly assist them in defeating lycanthropes.

Already 13 years of age, noble Melida Angel has yet to manifest her mana, and attends an elite academy where she is mistreated for her lack thereof. In order to help her, Kufa Vampir is ordered by the Angel family to become Melida's tutor. While Kufa seems to be a mere mentor, an ulterior motive lurks behind his job—he is to assassinate her if he confirms that she does not possess mana.

Kufa's investigation eventually leads him to determine he must eliminate Melida. However, Kufa is struck by her unwavering determination, spirit, and belief in herself when he witnesses her in a fight, choosing instead to offer a way she can manifest her magic. As Melida learns to use mana with the help of Kufa's teachings, Kufa forsakes his mission and jeopardizes everything to keep his discovery of Melida unknown to the Angel family and his own guild. However, both Kufa and Melida will soon realize that hiding their secret will not be the only challenge they face, as unforeseen trouble is waiting just around the corner.

Was expecting a 3 from trailer and synopsis.
Turns out its pretty good. Probably has the best editing and soundtrack implementation of the season so far.
Editing is very unique with a wide variety of camera angles and shot compositions.
Soundtrack has a massive epic orchestral feel to it with a good amount of emotional variety for different moments.
The show does not overburden you with world building monologues which I was initially afraid of.
The characters are built up decently well but so far are relatively basic and a bit stereotypical.
We will see how it plays out in later episodes.

"Oh look, a magic high school anime, how original... How could it be any more generic? Kirito laser sabering bullets in the very first moments, we are having the typical troubled blondie as the main girl and the shy blue-haired girl for the side as well. Let me just do a favor for myself and not waste my time." - As I believe for many others, this was my first reaction to the anime.
... But something was different. No braindead fanservice, the harem is missing several members AND where are the balloon animals?? ... so anyway something was off.

Sure the whole setup is as generic read more

BEFORE UPDATE (31/10/2019)

I think this is one of the most underrated anime of this season. This anime does not deserve the hate. I know the main characters sort of look like SAO characters, but surely this doesn't mean the anime is bad. The OP and ED are out of this world, definitely the best of this season, maybe even year? The story is unraveling quite slowly, and this may make people look away from this anime. However, the animation is pretty fricking good and the story, somewhat misunderstood by many, is quite simple. An assassin called Vampir is set on read more

The anime adaptation of Assassin's Pride has major contextual and pacing issues. Despite this, I can't bring myself to give this series a bad rating as it feels like the 'meta' of anime is pressuring studios to act this way.

What do I mean by this? The 3 episode rule. The studio is trying to emotionally charge the 1st 3 episodes enough to have watchers excited and interested and tell their friends about it to see and watch this new series that seemingly comes out of nowhere.

The result? A lot of cut content. Lots and lots of missing context.
