Last week we reported that the broadcast in China of the sixth episode of the anime Sekai Saikou no Ansatsusha, Isekai Kizoku ni Tensei suru (The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat) had omitted the participation of the Virtual YouTuber of Hololive Production, Momosuzu Nene, as the supporting character Kelly. However, the situation was more radical than it seemed.
The character and the Virtual YouTuber not only did not appear in the credits of the episode, but for the broadcast in China the character was completely removed so as not to have problems by not listing him in the credits. The situation was reported by the Twitter user Ascathon (@ gilga10), and confirmed by the user Misaka (请 叫 我 御 坂 弟弟） (@ misakaNo20002), who verified the captures taken from the platform Bilibili.
The background of the resentment of the fan community in China towards the agency of Virtual YouTubers Hololive Production dates back to September 2020, when Kiryu Coco and Akai Haato They were suspended for three weeks because during one of their broadcasts they mentioned Taiwan as a separate region from China. Both girls were checking their statistics from Google Analytics, which listed these two territories separately, so it was not something intentional.
The series has been on air since last October 6 in Japan and is confirmed with a total of twelve episodes, while the platform Crunchyroll will take care of its distribution in the West. For its part, Rui tsukiyo, who is also the author of the light novels Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi (Redo of Healer), began the publication of the novels through the independent service Shousetsuka ni Narou in July 2018. Subsequently, the publisher Kadokawa, through the publishing label Bunko Sneaker, began its publication on paper in February 2019.

Synopsis of Sekai Saikou no Ansatsusha, Isekai Kizoku ni Tensei suru
The greatest murderer on Earth only knew how to live as a tool for his employers, until they stopped allowing him to live.
