The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 10 Review: A Boring, Brutal, Yet Somewhat Essential Slog

I’ll be the first to admit that despite being a fan of the series thus far, I was disappointed by the previous outing. The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 10 has a lot to accomplish to save face. Let’s find out if that happened in this review!

The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 10 Overview

The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 10 Review- Plot and Characters

Surfing The World's Finest Assassin Episode 10

Skipping anime episodes is generally frowned upon by most civilised fans worldwide. However bad an episode is, it is probably essential to the plot in some way to make it a necessary watch or a skim at the very least. If an episode is canon and contains material present in the original source material (not filler), most will argue that it deserves to be watched by the majority viewership. I bring this all up because The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 10 was a barely watchable offering by the show.

This is a bold claim to make, but other than the final 90 seconds, nobody gains anything by watching this episode. There is no character development or plot progression, and the material isn’t even interesting enough to warrant a casual watch while not paying much attention. It was a nothing episode, and it deserves to be treated as such. You technically still need to watch it to make sense of the final two episodes, but by the end of watching it, you’re going to wish that you didn’t.

Archery The World's Finest Assassin Episode 10

I usually risk a lot by discussing the plot of an episode in case I end up spoiling anything for anyone. Here, I don’t have to worry because nothing happened in the episode to spoil, other than the finale, which I wouldn’t have talked about anyway. The show spent the entirety of The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 10 roaming around with Lugh and Dia as they went on a date. That’s it. That was the episode. Just the date between two characters, where nothing special or interesting happens. It was so boring that you might need a coffee to wake yourself up after watching it.

One would assume that the show did this to build up the relationship between the two characters more, but that plan has a huge flaw. We have been led to believe that everything Lugh does is for the sake of killing the Hero, including getting cosy with the female characters. Why then would anyone believe that Lugh suddenly cares about one of them if all he cares about is using them to get his means? Why should we care about a love story if we know it is farcical anyway?

Dia MAgic

Then the big reveal and the plot twist of The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 10 dropped, which confused me more than intrigued me. Had the episode started with that, it would have been a million times more effective in accomplishing what it wanted to do. As of now, it remains nothing but another weird hurdle for Lugh to get over, one that feels highly necessary. It did make it necessary to watch this in a roundabout way, but only barely. I would recommend watching just the first and last 90 seconds and skipping everything else. This episode was well nigh unbearable.

The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 10 Review- Art and Music

Not all was lost, as The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 10 looked better than all of the show’s offerings so far. Unlike the CG the show usually uses, the water looked crisp and alive. The colour palette was quite boring and dull, which has been an issue since the start of the series. Other than that, the music was just as uninspiring and average as any other episode of the show. If one were to find a living example of “lifeless”, it wouldn’t be that far apart from this episode of the show.

Verdict

The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 10 was boring, useless, and almost unwatchable. Just watch the first and last 90 seconds and skip the rest of the episode. You’ll thank me later.

10 COMMENTS

  1. Well I personally believe that it was a pretty good episode even though it was only based on Lugh and Dia. With the fact that dai has some secrets within there that Lugh clearly don’t know about! Lol

    • My main issue with it is that out of everything good about the series, like the magic system and the assassination tactics, the series has been mucking around in a romantic harem for two episodes and it doesn’t look to be ending anytime soon. There is a lot of good about this show, but the romantic subplot isn’t one of them, especially since the show has told us that Lugh is using them all anyway. What’s the point of showing them together, then?

  2. couldnt agreed more with everything. i watched anime that doesnt have much complexity like this one for only like 5-10 mins just to know where its going. For me, episode 10 is only those 90 Second on the last.

  3. I don’t see what you mean I honestly liked this episode but I like romantic anime I feel there will be a lot more to this episode it’s probably leading somewhere. You should watch the entire episode.

    • I don’t understand your point. The only thing I didn’t like about the episode is that I had to watch all of it. Maybe you should read the whole review before commenting? The insinuation that one would ever release a review on something without watching it completely is insulting, frankly.

  4. Indeed this may have been the worst episode of the series so far after thinking about it more as well as after reading your review. However I completely disagree that one should simply skip such an episode – like with most things in life there needs to be some balance – so for a series to constantly have action-packed sequences – it lessens the more relevant action scenes in a way.

    Maybe I’m not describing it as clearly as I would like here. Here’s another example: take a series/story with outstanding twists, but again a story needs balance & give it too many twists it’ll not only become ridiculous & nonsensical eventually – it’ll also take away from the twists altogether IMO.

    • Thank you for taking the time to read the article and crafting such a well thought out comment. I agree with you on the point that a series must have moments of calm before a storm can arrive, and I would never recommend skipping an episode. However, I also prefer the calm episodes to have some story progression and relevance to the plot, which I didn’t see in this episode of the finest assassin. I’m a strong believer of the fact that a viewer would gain nothing by watching this episode if they managed to catch the final 90 seconds, because the showrunners didn’t make it so.

  5. I agree for the most point. I can say that the episode did however have this weird death flag feel to it. I fell off the manga a while back so I don’t know what’s going on. But I think if they did this episode just to kill her that’d be amazing and a necessary evil. But this is mainly wishful thinking, other than that it’s just a mash of corny romance anime cliches, but it doesn’t make it unbearable for me at least. I watched through it with some minor cringes but said “aww” nonetheless.

    • I see where you’re coming from, and if there was something off about this episode it could certainly be Dia’s death flag. I believe it could have been handled so much better than it was, though.
