The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 6 Review- Plot and Characters
Before my words get misinterpreted, I would like to preface that this particular episode of The World’s Finest Assassin was my favourite episode of this entire anime season so far. There is no other episode of any of the other 10 anime that I’m watching that have even come close to the quality of this one, and I’m still reeling from the shock of it as this review is being written. I will also, however, never watch this episode ever again.
The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 6 was the singular most devastating and disheartening episode I’ve seen in quite a while. The depictions of cruelty and despair that loomed over the entire surroundings were hard to get through but extremely effective as storytelling devices. It was hard to peel my eyes away from the screen as the horrors unfolded before me, even though I wanted to look at anything but what was happening in the show.
The writer, Tsukiyo Rui, proved that he could do despair and revenge in a manner that’s hard to ignore with his previous work, Redo of Healer. While that particular series wasn’t very good, people still found it hard to look away from the sheer atrocities committed in front of their eyes, resulting in the show receiving very high viewership levels. He applied some of the same techniques in The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 6, but I believe that this episode made more of an impact because of the strength of this world and the horrifying reality of the situation.
The episode focuses on a group of orphans, including the final title girl Maha trying to live their lives as tour guides in the merchant cities. They lived a very happy existence, or as happy as it could be, while not having a roof over their heads and a parent to watch over them. One day, everything changed as their lives got ripped apart by a group of strangers, and they experienced atrocities that I would have found hard to describe even if I didn’t follow the no-spoiler rule. If you’ve seen Redo of Healer, you know. If not, please don’t watch that show because you liked this episode. It is garbage.
Watching The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 6 was a visceral experience, but a fantastic one nonetheless. The character introduction and development was spectacular, and the episode was very good at extracting sympathy and pleas of help out of the characters and audience alike. I wouldn’t want to experience it ever again, but I’m still glad that I got to watch it. Check this one out, even if it is hard to watch. It’s worth it.
The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 6 Review- Art and Music
The character design in The World’s Finest Assassin is sublime. Lugh looks just kind enough for his charm to be believable and just edgy enough for us to know that he is still the ruthless assassin underneath. His three companions are also all cute as a button and distinct and distinguished from each other. The villains look detestable, even if they are somewhat generic at times. The music also provides a wonderful ambience to the series, especially that wonderful opening theme. The show can’t get anything wrong at this point in time.
The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 6 was horrifying and hard to watch, but in a manner that made it hard to look away from it. This episode might have just pushed this show from great to absolutely masterful in a lot of opinions.
