Is The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 confirmed? The World’s Finest Assassin is getting a season 2, as announced in September 2023. However, the exact release date has not been announced yet.

The question is, when is season 2 of The World’s Finest Assassin coming out? And will there be more seasons after the second one?

Here’s everything we know so far regarding The World’s Finest Assassin anime season 2 in 2024, as well as the likely release date.

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 when The World’s Finest Assassin will have season 2 released.

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 got awakened by a goddess who wanted to reincarnate him because she needed his skill set to prevent the destruction of another world at the hands of a Hero.

How many seasons of The World’s Finest Assassin are there? Only one season of the anime has been released so far, with season 2 confirmed, but not released 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 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 waiting for Ansatsu Kizoku Season 2 to come out.

Over the last six years, I’ve examined hundreds of anime sequels. Some examples are:

When Is Season 2 Of The World’s Finest Assassin Coming Out?

We must look at two factors to determine the likely The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 release date and whether or not a more seasons will follow.

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 when The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 is likely coming out and if there will be a season 3 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 February 2024, The World’s Finest Assassin has a total of 7 volumes. Also, The World’s Finest Assassin series has a manga adaptation with 7 books.

Is The World’s Finest Assassin light novel finished? No, The World’s Finest Assassin light novel is not finished. The light novel, which first came out in 2018, has 7 volumes, and we still haven’t seen the last of it. So, it’s still ongoing.

Rui Tsukiyo (Redo of Healer) published the latest volume, volume 7, in Japan on July 29, 2022.

Where to start The World’s Finest Assassin after anime? The first season adapted only the first volume, so you can start reading from light novel volume 2.

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 with some original content mixed in. The second season will likely use 2 to 3.

That means there is enough content for at least two more The World’s Finest Assassin seasons after the second one.

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 2024.

The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 Profitability

How well did The World’s Finest Assassin Blu-ray sell? The World’s Finest Assassin Blu-ray sales are low. The World’s Finest Assassin Blu-ray sold roughly 800 copies per disk.

Less than 1,000 is not good, 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 7 sold more than 8,500 copies.

The World’s Finest Assassin light sales are not great, but the anime boost is there. Volume 7 sold almost double what volume 5 sold.

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 is only one figurine of Dia, which is sad. There are also fewer than 50 pieces of merchandise made for this series so far.

Hopefully, more figures and additional merchandise will be announced in the coming years.

I think it’s clear now that this series made almost no profit.

The streaming money is likely why we are getting a second season in the first place because it looks like nothing else makes money.

So, money is a big problem for more seasons of this series.

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 more seasons.

The Worlds Finest Assassin Season 2 Release Date

The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 Release Date

As of February 2024, The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 doesn’t have a release date. However, we should get some news about the second season of the World’s Finest Assassin in 2024, hopefully including the release date, trailer, and more.

The earliest release date for The World’s Finest Assassin season 2 is late 2024.

Studio Silver Link did a pretty good job with the first season, but they seem busy in 2024, so I’m not sure a second season is coming in 2024. Early 2025 is much more likely.

As for more seasons of this anime, it it will depend on the streaming numbers, but looking at the official Twitter account, it dropped few thousand followers in the last year.

The announcement of the second season also has only 6k likes, and the whole account sits only at 34,000 followers. Below 50k means it is not that popular series.

I think it’s obvious that Crunchyroll wanted a second seasaon, and that’s why we are getting it, no other reason, so hopefully they will want season 3 as well.

On average, it takes around two years for a one-cour series to get a next season, which is why 2024 as a release date sounds about right.

Even if it is released in 2024, we should still get The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2 announcement in 2023.

Studio Silver Link did a pretty good job with the first season, and they don’t seem that busy, so I doubt they would not have time for a new season in 2024.

I would say that if Kadokawa doesn’t announce the second season this year or in early 2024, then it’s not happening. 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.

Last Thoughts

In summary, The World’s Finest Assassin season 2 is happening, but there is no release date yet. We should hear some news about the second season this year. But don’t expect the release date for the second season to be before late 2024 since it takes time for a new season to be animated.
