Plot of the show:
Unlike Rui Tsukiyo’s other well-known work, the story of Sekai Saikyou no Assassin, Isekai Kizoku ni Tensei Suru is quite tame in comparison to Redo of Healer and follows a traditional fantasy-isekai setting.
The story follows the eldest son of the assassin aristocrat Tuatha Dé. When a great assassin is reborn in another world, he finds himself the heir to a long line of killers from the shadows. With both his modern-day knowledge and experience and the special magic and techniques of this new world, he could very well become the most unstoppable assassin in history.

Following are the voice actors and studio members who have been announced so far:
- Rugu by Akabane Kenji
- Dia by Ueda Rena
- Taruto by Takada Yūki
- Māha by Ahitaji Murasakino

About The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in a Different World as an Aristocrat (Sekai Saikyou no Assassin, Isekai Kizoku ni Tensei Suru)
“The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in a Different World as an Aristocrat” is a Japanese light novel series written by Rui Tsukiyo, published by Kadokawa with illustrations drawn by Reia.
Hamao Sumeragi is drawing the manga adaptation in Kadokawa’s Young Ace Up manga website since January 2019.
Yen Press publishes the light novels in English and describes them like so:
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?
