The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat, or Sekai Saikou no Ansatsusha Isekai Kizoku ni Tensei suru is an action fantasy anime based on a light novel written by Rui Tsukiyo. The anime is being directed by Tamura Masafumi, who is known for previously directing anime such as Ange Vierge and Two Car.

The anime is being animated by Studios Palette and Silver Link. Studio Palette is a new studio with barely any prior anime on their belts. In contrast, Silver Link has been in the game for more than a decade and has produced anime such as Kokoro Connect and The Great Jahy Won’t Be Defeated.

An Isekai is a very specific type of adventure/fantasy anime that involves the main character dying or teleporting into a world that is very different from theirs, usually involving a lot of magic and warfare. They are currently all the rage in the anime and manga world, and at least 5 new Isekai anime have dropped each season since about 2012-2013 when Swords Art Online took the genre to the sky despite not being a good representation of an Isekai itself.

You can love or hate the genre, but you can’t deny the effect it has on people as Isekai anime are still all the rage. Just look at Mushoku Tensei or Slime, which are either currently running or just finished last season. One thing most people agree about the genre is that the quality of a particular Isekai anime depends very highly on the interest the new world can generate and is directly proportional to its quality.

All of the above leads me to my point here- I believe that The World’s Finest Assassin is the Isekai that has my favourite new world ever. While a lot of that has been due to the sheer audacity of the concept- an assassin being tasked with killing the main Hero of a universe, I believe the world and the 5 different types of abilities as a concept is one that I truly love, and I can’t believe that this is the first time I’m seeing these factors being put together in this manner. The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 3 also proves me right by just being a splendid and intriguing episode of anime.

When the assassin, or Lugh as he is known now, picked his powers in Episode 2, I was already hooked with the power concept of the show. Then, as The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 3 rolled around, we saw the powers in action, and I was floored by their sheer ingenuity. The manner in which the anime used them to enhance the main character’s power while still managing to make sense in the real world was wonderful.

A lot of The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 3, or Sekai Saikou no Ansatsusha Episode 3, relies on the dynamic between Dia and Lugh, which is perfectly sweet if not inherently creepy based on them being 10 and 7, respectively. The relationship between Lugh and his father is also intriguing, and the assassination family features heavily into the show’s tagline of an aristocrat. It will be interesting to see how it all fits into the confrontation with the Hero whenever it happens. As of now, I am very high on this show.

The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 3 Review- Art and Music

Silver Link has traditionally always been a studio that has just been perfectly adequate. They are never the ones to set the world on fire or earn any particular praise for how well animated any of their shows are, but they can always be relied upon to deliver a perfectly solid and consistent show that is pleasant to look at and doesn’t have any major issues. That is exactly what you get with The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 3, and I have no issue with that.

Musically, the show is bang average, with the opening serving as a nice lead into the show while being a perfectly good song in and of itself. The OSTs don’t stand out very much right now, and I forgot all of them as soon as the episode ended. Here’s to hoping for some cool battle music in the future, that is, when we get to it.

Verdict

The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 3 was a fantastic episode that served to raise the bar of expectations for this anime more than they already were. If fascinating concepts and great Isekais are what interest you, check this one out.
