The world's greatest assassin had sworn lifelong allegiance to the organization that raised him. However, despite his loyalty, that very same organization takes action to silence him, ultimately leading to his demise. Drowning in frustration and regrets he can no longer suppress, he finds himself in an audience with a goddess attracted by his exceptional skills. The goddess offers him reincarnation into a magnificent world of swords and magic so he can perform a crucial mission: prevent that world's destruction by slaying its hero.

Accepting the goddess' request, he is reborn as Lugh Tuatha Dé, the son of a noble family of assassins serving the Alvan Kingdom. Under the guidance of his father, Lugh learns new assassination techniques that significantly differ from the cold-blooded and unsympathetic killing style of his previous life. Furthermore, his other talents bloom, allowing him to meet new allies and acquaintances. Even so, Lugh knows that his efforts are far from adequate, because a monumental adversary such as the hero can only be defeated with perfection.

Somewhere between the release of .Hack and the year of 2013 the isekai genre devolved into a downwards spiral of recycled ideas being vomited out by any studio looking to make a quick buck. The World’s Finest Assassin tries to break free from this cycle, spicing up the genre by making the protagonist a world-class assassin instead of a loser otaku. If that isn’t enough to satisfy you, he’s also an anti-hero with the mission of bringing down the hero of the world. Apparently, any slight change to an isekai is enough to get an A+ for originality from the anime community.

When an author proclaims that one of their works is the best/finest that they have ever written, you'd better take them at their word seriously. It's especially more so from one that has created one of the most controversial works adapted into anime, rightsmack at the beginning of the year: Redo of Healer. That's right, Rui Tsukiyo is once again back on the anime scene, and this Isekai Assassin work that this chill furry dude has so thoroughly written, is indeed no pushover. It's something that feels a lot more like your traditional decent Isekai reincarnation story, with a premise that makes it kinda impressive read more

The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated into Another World as an Aristocrat is an isekai that’s centered around an old, about-to-be-retired assassin who gets himself killed by the very “organization” he was loyal to during his final mission. Just before he was destined to die, he was reincarnated and placed in front of a god, which the entity tasked him to slay the hero of her realm. As it’s said by the entity herself, if the hero wasn’t slain, the hero would bring destruction and annihilation upon the world in which he saved.

Well, that would have been the plot of the read more

Let's talk about the heroic story of a nameless man. He has worked for the organization and has lived in a world of killing each other. Quietly, quickly, and kill the target. That's it. He put the organization first and didn't betray his pride. No, it should be called a way to live. His life seems to be plain but actually brave. Because the underworld didn't allow his well-being. Hard-boiled. The noir life suddenly ended. He reincarnated in various processes. In the post-incarnation world, he decided to live of his own will rather than being used by anyone. It's an opportunity for read more
