The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 9 Review- Plot and Characters
The World’s Finest Assassin is a show that has a lot going on for it. It has a fantastic main character that for once feels like deserves that power and accolades he has accrued. It has a great world that he is isekai’d into. It has tons of great supporting characters, not the least of being the three lead girls who adore the main character. It has a great magic system based in reality, alongside other realistic approaches to a tired genre. Most of all, it has the well-earned attention of the anime fandom currently.
It doesn’t seem to know how to manage all the eggs in its basket, however, as instead of focusing on the things that made it great in the first place, it tends to focus on the least interesting parts of itself. Instead of building more on the excellent magic and superpower systems, it focuses most of its attention on the pseudo-haram situation that it has going on, alongside various other inappropriate situations that Tsukiyo Rui only wrote to drum up attention.
Now, the show is free to do whatever it likes, and you can be assured that people are still going to watch it for one reason or another, but that is what differentiates a great show from a passable one- telling a good story instead of fulfilling fantasies that can be fulfilled better by other means anyway. Why not do the things that are unique to you and your show alone to showcase that you are above the usual traps of this genre?
The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 9 saw Lugh slip into his Illig Balor persona once more to carry out an assassination, his first. That was five minutes of this episode, as the rest of it was devoted to the various romantic advancements made upon Lugh, including a weird interaction with his mother. The less said about that, the better. At least it had an assassination to carry things over to the next episode without creating too much of a stink, but given the next episode’s title is “First of Dates”, I don’t have high hopes for it.
The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 9 Review- Art and Music
Things were looking particularly rough this time around in the animation department. The long focus shots didn’t look very good, and the character designs were off whenever the focus was shifted away from them into some other subject. It’s almost as if the studio is running out of budget and doing whatever they can to stay afloat until the next season. Anime is a cruel industry, so I feel for the people behind the show for doing what they can using the resources that they have.
The World’s Finest Assassin Episode 9 was an uncomfortable watch for all the wrong reasons. Can we have some more magic and assassinations instead of weird romantic subplots?
