I could make an Assassin’s Creed joke but this shit got nothing to do with that series. All I know is the word ‘assassin’ is in there and hopefully there’s bound to be some cool shit happening.
This is Assassin’s Pride.

Plot Summary: Only those from noble families have the mana to be able to fight against monsters. Kūfa is a noble born to a duke’s family who is sent to tutor a young woman named Merida. If it turns out that Merida has no talent with mana, Kūfa is secretly instructed to assassinate her.
First Thoughts: Well…..um…..I’m kinda underwhelmed but I didn’t really expect to love this right out of the bat. It’s basically this guy Kufa having the job to secretly have the kill order for this girl and wow, this girl definitely sucks as they put it out to be. Hell, there was a scene of her getting the shit kicked out of here before the assassin actually saves her and to be fair, I’m very meh on both characters in terms of actually getting me hooked on them and….I’m left with nothing. I don’t feel shit about anything in here.
Yeah, normally I’d just put a SKIP on this knowing most shows I put on that, I’d watch them anyway to see how forgettable or bad it goes…..but yeah, you know how I roll.
I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and at least that action sequence in the beginning was good.
