Crunchyroll is streaming the first season, describing the plot as:
The world’s number one assassin has been reincarnated as the eldest son of a family of aristocrat assassins. In exchange for being reincarnated in another world, a goddess has imposed upon him one condition.
“Kill the Hero who is prophesied to destroy the world.”
This was to be the mission in his new life. The synergistic effect of the vast knowledge and experience he gained that made all manner of assassinations possible in the modern world, and the secret techniques and magic of the fantasy world’s most powerful family of assassins turn him into the greatest assassin of all time.
The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat (Sekai Saiko no Ansatsusha, Isekai Kizoku ni Tensei suru) anime is based on a light novel series written by Rui Tsukiyo and illustrated by Reia. It was first published on the Shosetsuka ni Naro website. Kadokawa acquired the series and has been publishing it since February 2019. A manga adaptation with art by Hamao Sumeragi has been serialized via Young Ace Up since January 2019.
Yen Press has licensed the light novel in English, describing it as:
“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?
