On Monday, Rui Tsukiyo (Redo of Healer) on twitter announced that the author’s light novel The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in a Different World as an Aristocrat, also known as The World’s Best Assassin, is getting an anime this coming July 2021.
The series franchise also launched a website on top of the author’s announcement. You can visit the official anime website here.
The anime will star Kenji Akabane as Lugh, Reina Ueda as Dia, Yuki Takada as Tarte, and Shino Shimoji as Maha. A live event for the voice actors will be held tentatively on March 6, 2021 or March 7, 2021 at the KADOKAWA Light Novel EXPO 2020
The World’s Best Assassin is based on a light novel written by Rui Tsukiyo and illustrated by Reia. Yen Press is currently publishing the light novels and manga in English. The website describes the story as:
The world’s best assassin, on the verge of retirement, was betrayed by the organization while returning home from a mission. Before he knew it, he woke up in a temple where he found a goddess offering a chance of reincarnation. He is to kill the ‘hero’ from another world that would bring disaster to humankind.
Reborn as the eldest son of an assassin aristocrat, Lugh TowerHades is set on a mission given by the goddess.– Official Website
Rui Tsukiyo last month recommended The World’s Best Assassin as it’s available in English despite Redo of Healer being refused for a translation.
