The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2: Everything We Know So Far

Will there ever be The World's Finest Assassin Season 2? Will we ever get to see a sequel?

The World's Finest Assassin is one of the many isekai shows out there that has been getting much recognition since its first release. The show belongs to many genres such as action, drama, fantasy, mystery, and last but not least, romance. The World's Finest Assassin follows the story of an older man, who is infamous as the world's greatest assassin, as he got reincarnated into the world of swords and magic after a plane incident.

The World's Finest Assassin began life as a Japanese light novel series written by Rui Tsukiyo with illustrations by Reia. It was initially serialized online on the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Narō from July 2018 to October 2021, before Kadokawa acquired and published the novel in February 2019 under their Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko imprint. As of now, six volumes have been released so far, although the seventh volume was planned to be released on July 29, 2022.

The light novel series The World's Finest Assassin was later adapted into a manga series with art by Hamao Sumeragi. It has been serialized online via Kadokawa Shoten's Young Ace Up website since January 2019. As of now, the manga series has been collected into four tankobon volumes.

Fortunately, fans from all over the world can already enjoy the series, as both the light novel and manga series have been published in English by Yen Press on December 29, 2020, and February 9, 2021, respectively.

An anime adaptation of The World's Finest Assassin light novel series was later announced. The adaptation was done by Silver Link, the studio best known for its popular anime releases such as Chivalry of a Failed Knight and Kokoro Connect. Not only Silver Link, but Studio Palette was also in charge of the anime adaptation.

The anime series The World's Finest Assassin premiered on October 6, 2021, and ran for twelve episodes before concluding on December 22 of the same year. After the conclusion of the anime, many fans are already craving a new sequel to see the continuation of the story. So, what is the renewal status of The World's Finest Assassin Season 2?

Unfortunately, as of now, the studio nor the author has yet to say anything regarding a new sequel. Therefore, we currently don't have enough information on whether The World's Finest Assassin Season 2 will be released or not. However, as the show hasn't been canceled, there will always be a chance of return.

Will The World's Finest Assassin Season 2 be possible?

Despite not being announced yet, there is a good chance that The World's Finest Assassin Season 2 would be released.

The main reason is that the first season ended with a cliffhanger, which means that there will be enough room for the studio to make a season renewal as a continuation of the first season. Not only that, the post-credit scene pretty much hints at the return of the show. Not to mention, the first season has only managed to adapt the first out of seven volumes of the light novel, meaning that there will be more than enough source material for The World's Finest Assassin Season 2.

As a matter of fact, the anime series The World's Finest Assassin has become the most-watched anime on Crunchyroll, the top watched anime in Japan (streaming), and 100 million views in China. And with the glaring number of demands from the fans, The World's Finest Assassin Season 2 would practically be guaranteed. At this point, it's just a matter of when.

The World's Finest Assassin Action

The world's greatest assassin had sworn lifelong allegiance to the organization that raised him. However, despite his loyalty, that very same organization takes action to silence him, ultimately leading to his demise. Drowning in frustration and regret he can no longer suppress, he finds himself in an audience with a goddess attracted by his exceptional skills. The goddess offers him reincarnation into a magnificent world of swords and magic so he can perform a crucial mission: prevent that world's destruction by slaying its hero.

Accepting the goddess' request, he is reborn as Lugh Tuatha Dé, the son of a noble family of assassins serving the Alvan Kingdom. Under the guidance of his father, Lugh learns new assassination techniques that significantly differ from the cold-blooded and unsympathetic killing style of his previous life. Furthermore, his other talents bloom, allowing him to meet new allies and acquaintances. Even so, Lugh knows that his efforts are far from adequate because a monumental adversary such as the hero can only be defeated with perfection.
