The World's Finest Assassin returned this week for Episode 4 and fans seem to love the plot. The newest episode revealed a twist about the goddess, so Episode 5 might shed some more light on her motivation.

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, and the fanservice and harem elements aren't for everyone. At least, the anime seems better than others at what it does.


If you can't wait for more, keep reading. Below, you'll find our handy guide to The World's Finest Assassin Episode 5 including the release date and airing time of Sekai Saiko no Anasatsusha.

The World's Finest Assassin Anime Episode 4 Recap

In The World's Finest Assassin Episode 4, Lugh rescues Tarte, a young girl from a poor family who was abandoned in a forest. A twist of fate allows her to see Lugh for what he is, so she stays on to help him in his assassination mission.

Of course, it's important to remember that Lugh isn't much of an admirable character. He's too good at brainwashing people and willing to exploit that to achieve his goals.

By the end of the episode, we also find out that Lugh isn't the goddess' only chosen one. There are other people who've been given the task of assassinating the hero, although the one we see isn't as willing as Lugh. But could this mean the main character is disposable to the goddess too? Stay tuned to find out!

The World's Finest Assassin Anime Episode 5 Release Date


The release date for The World's Finest Assassin Episode 5 is Wednesday, November 3, both in Japan and elsewhere. The episode will be titled "Qualifications of Assassins." We expect that whoever decides those will find Lugh more than qualified!

For the time being, the 12-episode anime is available to watch online with English subtitles only, but this could change in the future! Meanwhile, the subtitles are available in many languages apart from English.
