“The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat” is an isekai anime as the title suggests. It is known as “Ansatsu Kizoku in short. We have seen a variety of isekai anime, where individuals reincarnate as heroes or anti-heroes. They become powerful enough that even nations start to fear them. They are sometimes mages or sometimes swordsmen. Some are just so powerful, they are in a class of their own. But Ansatsu is a bit different.
Ansatsu delivers a protagonist who is a fine assassin who gets a contract from a goddess. It may be the first time that a goddess chooses someone to assassinate the very person who is the hero. Why the goddess does so? Well, that’s the story. But the assassin gets the chance to live like a human rather than a tool. He has to accomplish the target goddess provided. But how he lives depends on him.
Strange and Unique
From the plot itself, this anime is very interesting. It is a world of swords and magic. And the assassin is a master of guns. We can expect a fusion of magic & guns beyond the master level from the character. Because he is the finest of pieces. As usual, along with MC, his girl partners are also badasses. Some great fights are on the way. More than close combat fights, this anime may have long-distance attacks. Long-range attacks are not rare. But we can expect a lot of classic distance fights from this one.
The main factor in an isekai anime is magical escapism into other worlds. Most isekais have some kind of magic in them. Usually, with magic, its companion is either a sword or any other weapon. But this anime gives action through guns run by magic. So the explosive power of the gun multiplies. So the attacks are more dangerous than the normal gun attacks. Remember too, the protagonist reincarnated with his experience and memories. He now is a young boy, but at one time he was the oldest experienced assassin. Some out-of-the-world innovations or actions can be expected there.
The young protagonist will not act like a ‘young’ one. His demeanor will be attractive. We all like when such a character comes out cool and cold. This protagonist is a benign old man with an appearance of a young boy. Strict but kind.
