This means that we’ll be able to see all the shenanigans of the family beautifully animated. We couldn’t be more excited and we want more people to jump on the hype train. So these are a few reasons why you should watch the upcoming anime, Spy x Family.

An Interesting Family

Spy x Family features the fake family of the Forgers. A dysfunctional family that features one of Westails greatest spies, a professional assassin nicknamed the Thorn Princess, and a young girl who has telepathic abilities. Loid Forger is Twilight, a Westails spy that has perfected his craft and mastered the art of disguise. He is able to use multiple disguises to blend into his surroundings and infiltrate enemy territory. He is assigned to Operation Strix which requires him to enroll a child into a prestigious school in order for him to get close to a dangerous public figure. Thus the Forger Family begins their crazy antics. The first order of business for Loid was to adopt a six-year-old child. So when he came to adopt Anya used her telepathic abilities to be the perfect child for Loid to adopt. Thus Loid Forget ended up with a telepathic child as his assignment. When it was time to get a wife he managed to find Yor Forger. Yor wanted a husband to disguise her job as an assassin and blend in more easily with the world. They both agreed unaware of their ulterior motives. The only one who knows is Anya, thanks to her ability to read the minds of others. Once the family is formed is when the antics truly begin. Loid trying to cover his identity while trying to get Anya to succeed at one of the most prestigious schools in the world is hilarious. Anya is the brightest in the group but she doesn’t shy away from using her powers to keep her family together. It’s interesting to see Yor and Loid’s relationship mature and grow as they spend more time together. Seeing them grow closer and begin to form attachments to their family is heartwarming and exciting. It’s hilarious seeing Loid try to be the perfect father while Anya is out reading minds and thinking of things no six-year-old should be thinking about. Yor’s own family is a bit of a complex mess seeing as her brother is a spy for the enemies of Twilight. Not only that but he has a very unhealthy attachment to his sister which could prove to be a challenge to Loid. We’ll see what happens as the story progresses but we are loving what we are seeing from all these characters.

The World Of Spies and Assassins

The World of Spy x Family has a ton of potential. It’s a war-torn city that leaves the dirty fighting to the spies and assassins leaving a lot to the imagination. We’ve already seen enemy spy families, a dog that can see the future, and even bad spies that somehow manage to make a name for themselves through sheer accidents. What else can Tatsuya Endo have in store for us? We are more interested to see how things carry on as Loid and Yor try their best to hide their secret lives from each other. Just how long will it take a world-renown spy to figure out that the woman he fake married is one of the world’s greatest spies known as the Thorn Princess. It will definitely make for an interesting reveal. We’re interested in seeing how Anya copes with all the events that happen around her. The war and how it affects her parents. We’re eager to see what kind of other members will join the Forger family if any. We’re pretty content with having a spy, assassin, telepath, and oracle puppy in the mix. If you need any more reasons then you should just go ahead and check out the manga for yourself and do the three-chapter rule. If it doesn’t grab your attention by the third chapter then it probably won’t be something you’ll enjoy.

Synopsis: “For the agent known as “Twilight,” no order is too tall if it is for the sake of peace. Operating as Westalis’ master spy, Twilight works tirelessly to prevent extremists from sparking a war with neighboring country Ostania. For his latest mission, he must investigate Ostanian politician Donovan Desmond by infiltrating his son’s school: the prestigious Eden Academy. Thus, the agent faces the most difficult task of his career: get married, have a child, and play family. Twilight, or “Loid Forger,” quickly adopts the unassuming orphan Anya to play the role of a six-year-old daughter and prospective Eden Academy student. For a wife, he comes across Yor Briar, an absent-minded office worker who needs a pretend partner of her own to impress her friends. However, Loid is not the only one with a hidden nature. Yor moonlights as the lethal assassin “Thorn Princess.” For her, marrying Loid creates the perfect cover. Meanwhile, Anya is not the ordinary girl she appears to be; she is an esper, the product of secret experiments that allow her to read minds. Although she uncovers their true identities, Anya is thrilled that her new parents are cool secret agents! She would never tell them, of course. That would ruin the fun. Under the guise of “The Forgers,” the spy, the assassin, and the esper must act as a family while carrying out their own agendas. Although these liars and misfits are only playing parts, they soon find that family is about far more than blood relations.”
