The official website for Rui Tsukiyo and Hamao Sumeragi’s Sekai Saikou no Ansatsusha, Isekai Kizoku ni Tensei suru (The world’s best assassin, To reincarnate in a different world aristocrat) light novel series has announced that the upcoming anime adaptation from SILVER LINK (Non Non Biyori) and Studio Palette (Strike Witches) has been delayed. The anime was scheduled to premiere in July 2021 but it has since been pushed back to October 2021 due to “various circumstances”.
A new trailer and visual for the anime was also released.
“I’m going to live for myself!”
The greatest assassin on Earth knew only how to live as a tool for his employers—until they stopped letting him live. Reborn by the grace of a goddess into a world of swords and sorcery, he’s offered a chance to do things differently this time around, but there’s a catch…He has to eliminate a super-powerful hero who will bring about the end of the world unless he is stopped.
Now known as Lugh Tuatha Dé, the master assassin certainly has his hands full, particularly because of all the beautiful girls who constantly surround him. Lugh may have been an incomparable killer, but how will he fare against foes with powerful magic?
