The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat (Episode 7) – Life of Falsehoods

Ansatsu Kizoku Title

Illig Balor has been given a shop to run by his merchant father who has been unable to make it work. Can he turn it around and use it to further his contacts with the nobles that could one day become his targets?

What happened?

Lugh… I mean Illig Balor performed lifesaving surgery on his new brother and gained even more favour with his new father. Of course, this is all a part of his alias as a merchant’s bastard son. Even after six months of training, the merchant is ready to give Illig his first real assignment. He has a shop that he’s been selling liquor from but it’s not doing very well. He would like Illig to use it as he sees fit.

Never one to miss an opportunity, Illig creates a business that will make money and get him close to nobility. That would grant him the ability to freely move around without being questioned and familiarize himself with the nobles who he may have to one day assassinate. This business is a cosmetics shop! Not just any old cosmetics though. He is going to introduce moisturiser to this world.

Not only is it a world first, but the key ingredient will be produced in Tuatha Dé which will benefit his homeland and secure the recipe. No one is going to attempt to sneak into a nation known for its assassins. Of course, that won’t stop them from trying to kidnap Illig… That was obviously a bad move.

Since Maha was officially adopted by the merchant, she is now Illig sister and together with Tarte, they are well trained as assassins, protecting Illig from danger, not that he needs it. The moisturiser business is a roaring success and Illig has become something of a celebrity. On top of that, Tarte and Maha are quite infatuated with him and his merchant family will always be open to him. It’s been a pretty successful mission.

Once a month, Illig takes a day off leaving Tarte and Maha to enjoy some downtime, although they miss his company. Illig travels across the country and visits Dia where he transcribes the spells she’s invented. This time, she has a surprise for him – anti-gravity. They are building up quite a repertoire of spells. He has only five more years to prepare to kill the hero, but things are looking good so far!

What did you think?

I was expecting a little more action from this episode but that was mostly because of the timings in the last episode. I assumed that Lugh began his training at the same time Maha was kidnapped, but it would appear that the overlap was minimal so we get to see a little more of Lugh completing his Illig mission which he does with style. Some might get upset that Lugh has accidentally built a harem of magical assassins, but I am here for that. Not to mention that all of the girls are fun and more than a little dangerous.

Hopefully, we can now return to Tuatha Dé and start some assassin missions. I can’t wait to see his team working to take down some villains, especially if it’s anything like the animation in the OP which is amazing. I can’t believe I haven’t mentioned it until now, but it is fantastic. It’s like a James Bond anime opening sequence.

What have you learnt?

It’s fairly normal for the over-powered Isekai hero to get things fairly easily. We’ve seen it time and again and it seems to work for the most part. I do wonder if we will at some point see Lugh experience a loss. It would be interesting to see if it does anything to his character. A normal story structure tends to have ups and downs. If the hero keeps winning, eventually there will be a big loss or vice versa. This doesn’t seem to happen too much in this genre but it is something I’d like to see more of.

Once more, we got to see the Goddess goofing around. This time she summoned a rapper who can drop killer rhymes… unfortunately, that just equates to insulting people in this world and they’re likely to kill you. It was hilarious and furthers the idea that she has been summoning all sorts of random people in the hopes that someone will kill the hero… if there even is a hero. I’m not entirely convinced at this point and I can’t wait to see which way it goes.
