Seven Seas Entertainment, through its Airship light novel imprint, is excited to announce the license acquisition of the light novel series My Status as an Assassin Obviously Exceeds the Hero’s by Matsuri Akai and Tozai, the original story behind the stealth hit fantasy isekai manga already available from Seven Seas!
The synopsis for My Status as an Assassin Obviously Exceeds the Hero’s is: When Akira’s class is magically summoned to another world, he and his classmates are awarded fantastical powers–but while one of them is lucky enough to become a true Hero, Akira becomes a mere Assassin.

Harboring doubts about the intentions of the king, Akira uses his newfound strength as a master of the shadows to uncover the secrets and conspiracies of the crown.
