The World's Finest Assassin returned this week for Episode 3, and it's exciting to see the main character settle in his new, isekai'ed life. In many ways, this is another slow episode, with the now young-looking character learning about the magic around him, and how he can use it to defeat the hero when he comes of age.
Based on a light novel written by Tsukiyo Rui and illustrated by Reia, The World's Finest Assassin offers a twist to your typical isekai by having an already extremely competent character reincarnated in another world. In many other ways, it is your typical isekai, but thankfully, it's one that does what it does better than most.
Did the first couple of episodes get you interested? Below, you'll find our handy guide to The World's Finest Assassin Episode 4 including the release date and airing time of Sekai Saiko no Anasatsusha.
The World's Finest Assassin Anime Episode 3 Recap
Lugh keeps learning from Dia, a ten-year-old girl who is experienced in magic. Even she is impressed by his mana levels, which will potentially enable him to defeat the hero when he grows.
Lugh becomes fascinated by the Fahr stones, within which he can store his Mana. When his overachieving goes wrong, Dia takes the blame. However, the incident is tracked back to Lugh due to the excess of Mana.
The main character realizes that his power alone won't be enough and that he is going to have to collect more Fahr stones if he wants to assassinate the hero soon and get to enjoy his youth afterward. However, Fahr stones aren't exactly easy to come by and the fact that they are not given to people from other regions complicates matters.
Knowing Lugh, it's entirely possible that he could resolve to illegal means to acquire them, and the next episodes could explore that.
