posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

A website opened on Monday to announce that Rui Tsukiyo and Reia's The World's Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in a Different World as an Aristocrat (Sekai Saikō no Ansatsusha, Isekai Kizoku ni Tensei Suru) light novels will get a television anime adaptation that will premiere in July.

The anime will star Kenji Akabane as Lugh, Reina Ueda as Dia, Yūki Takada as Tarte, and Shino Shimoji as Maha (character name spelling not confirmed).

Masafumi Tamura (Wise Man's Grandchild, The Misfit of Demon King Academy, Two Car) is directing the anime at SILVER LINK and Studio Palette, and Katsuhiko Takayama (Two Car, Ange Vierge, The Future Diary) is both writing and overseeing the series scripts. Eri Nagata (Ensemble Stars!, Blade & Soul) is designing the characters.

Yen Press is releasing the novels in English, and it describes the story:

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…!

Tsukiyo began serializing the story on the "Shōsetsuka ni Narō" (Let's Become Novelists) website in July 2018. Kadokawa began publishing the story in print volumes with illustrations by Reia beginning with the first volume in February 2019.

Hamao Sumeragi launched a manga adaptation in Kadokawa's Young Ace Up manga website in January 2019. Yen Press is also releasing the manga in English.

Seven Seas Entertainment publishes Hideaki Yoshikawa's manga adaptation of Tsukiyo's Dungeon Builder: The Demon King's Labyrinth is a Modern City! novels. Tsukiyo's Redo of Healer light novel series also inspired an ongoing television anime adaptation that premiered on January 13.
