Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 will happen in 2023.
The World’s Finest Assassin anime, known as Ansatsu Kizoku in Japan, is based on a successful light novel. Rui Tsukiyo wrote the World’s Finest Assassin light novel series, and Reia did the illustrations.
The World’s Finest Assassin is a fantastic isekai fantasy series with drama and romance elements, so it’s no wonder that fans are asking if The World’s Finest Assassin will have a season 2.
The main character of this anime series is Lugh Tuatha Dé, the world’s greatest assassin.
The story is about a man who lived his life as the world’s greatest assassin. When he died, he was awakened by a goddess who wanted to reincarnate him because she needed his skill set to prevent the destruction of the world at the hands of the Hero.
How many seasons of The World’s Finest Assassin are there? There is only one season of The World’s Finest Assassin anime. That means there is no season 2 of The World’s Finest Assassin anime yet.
The first season is the only thing you can watch since there was no movie or OVA made for The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat series yet.
The first season of The World’s Finest Assassin anime, with 12 episodes, premiered in Japan in October 2021. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still hoping Ansatsu Kizoku will get a Season 2.
Is There a Season 2 of World’s Finest Assassin?
The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 has yet to be officially confirmed, so there is no second season of this anime series. The question is, will there be a season 2 of The World’s Finest Assassin?
We must look at two factors to determine if there will be a The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2.
The first factor is the source material, and the second is how much profit the first season made.
We will now examine both to see if The World’s Finest Assassin will have a season 2 or not.
The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 Light Novel & Manga
The source material for The World’s Finest Assassin anime is a light novel.
How many volumes of The World’s Finest Assassin are there? As of January 2023, there are six light novel volumes of The World’s Finest Assassin. There is also a manga adaptation with four books.
Is The World’s Finest Assassin light novel finished? The World’s Finest Assassin light novel is ongoing, but the end is not that far away. The original story of The World’s Finest Assassin ended after only 2.5 years on Shōsetsuka ni Narō.
Rui Tsukiyo (Redo of Healer) published the latest volume in Japan on February 27, 2021.
The World’s Finest Assassin Volume 7 Release Date? The exact release date for volume 7 has yet to be confirmed, but it should come out in the first half of 2023.
Where to start reading The World’s Finest Assassin after the anime? Volume 2 of the World’s Finest Assassin light novel series follows the first season.
So, if you want to continue the story from where the anime ended, have a look at The World’s Finest Assassin light novel volume 2 in English.
The first season adapted only one volume, but it had some original content, so the second season should likely use volumes 2 and 3.
That means there is enough content for at least two more seasons of The World’s Finest Assassin in 2023.
I highly recommend checking out The World’s Finest Assassin light novels. Many fans prefer books over anime, and it is the only way to continue the story in 2023.
The World’s Finest Assassin’s Profitability And Sales Figures
How well did The World’s Finest Assassin Blu-ray sell? The World’s Finest Assassin Blu-ray sales are low. The Blu-ray didn’t rank on Oricon, so we need to wait for exact numbers, but it’s likely only around 500-1000.
Around 1,000 wouldn’t be that bad, and while Blu-ray sales aren’t all that important these days, they help with a new season’s chances.
How well does The World’s Finest Assassin light novel sell? The World’s Finest Assassin Volume 5 sold below 5,000 copies, and The World’s Finest Assassin Volume 6 sold below 5,000 as well.
The World’s Finest Assassin light sales are bad, but I’m curious to see how well volume 7 does because it should show the full anime boost. Volume 5 and 6 sales are before the anime aired.
How many copies does The World’s Finest Assassin have in print? As of 2021/12/23, The World’s Finest Assassin series had 1,000,000 copies in print.
It is not in the top 200 most popular light novel series of all time.
How much merchandise is there for The World’s Finest Assassin? So far, there are no figurines, which is sad. There are also fewer than 30 pieces of merchandise made for this series so far.
Hopefully, some figures and additional merchandise will be announced in the coming months.
I think it’s clear now that this series didn’t sell that well from the numbers we have now, but It will be much easier to tell how well this anime sold in the next 3 to 6 months.
In other words, it’s too early to tell if it made enough money for a second season.
I highly recommend checking out The World’s Finest Assassin light novel if you’re a fan of The World’s Finest Assassin series. The books are currently the best way to support the chances of a second season.
Will There Be The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2?
As of January 2023, The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 doesn’t have a release date as it is not confirmed yet and it’s hard to tell right now if there will be a second season of this anime.
But even if it does get announced, the earliest release date for The World’s Finest Assassin season 2 would be in 2024.
There is more than enough source material for a second season, but it looks like this series struggled to make any more from the numbers we have now.
This series also doesn’t seem that popular on social media. The official Twitter account has fewer than 30,000 followers.
Streaming likely made some money for this series since it’s pretty popular in China, and it even did decently on Crunchyroll.
However, streaming alone is not enough to get a second season.
That’s why we need to wait how well the new light novel volume will sell to see the anime boost. And also, if there is some merchandise and figures made for this series.
We should know that in the next six months. Then we will be able to tell if this anime is over or if it will continue with another season.
If volume 7 can sell at least 20,000 copies and there are one to two new figures with some merch announced in the next few months, then it is likely a season 2 will happen.
I believe if Kadokawa does not announce the second season this year, it will not happen, so let’s hope for the best.
Check out The World’s Finest Assassin light novel if you want to support the chances of a new season of this anime series.
