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.

tl;dr: If you're someone that likes overpowered main characters, I suggest you try this out! It's a magical anime that takes place in a fictional city and is a typical 12 episode long series so it's not too long. Watch a couple episodes and see if you like it.

On to my actual review now,

Assassins Pride is a story about a powerful soldier named Kufa who mentors a girl without magic from a well-known family. In this world, magic ability represents the higher class standing of society which this girl, named Melida, is from. Kufa, who normally slays monsters and deals with other matters around the ...

Mixed Feelings
Not that I hate this anime, but I gotta say it got me hooked for some reason.

(Sorry for my bad English it's not my main language)

Characters: 6/10
The design is great, other than the sensei looking like low budget Kirito (everybody says this so I don't think I need to explain further)

Animation: 4/10
It was good at the start, then gets janky on the very few last episodes (specially the goofy fighting in EP 12)

History/Narrative - 4
Easily boring, it doesn't keep me wanting to see the rest of the story, there is potential but it is poorly explored.

Characters and Development - 5
Some are horrible clichés and others are poorly developed to the point of being irritating. There is practically no chemistry in relationships.

Animation and Art - 6
It's nothing new or innovative, but the art is pleasant, the scenarios are simple and the animation, even though it's very static, provides a bit of animation in the fights. The designs of certain characters are a bit piggy and very cliché aesthetically speaking.

Soundtrack and sound effects - 5
The basics and the minimum ...
