You might be wondering:
What makes the “Spy X Family” anime so good? Why is it so popular?
Well, the thing is:
It’s not your regular Shounen. Sure, there are plenty of intense fight scenes, but it perfectly blends that with its comedy and wholesome family theme.
The anime was co-produced by Studio WIT and Studio Cloverworks. These studios are famous for their works on series like “Attack on Titan” and “The Promised Neverland.”
I’m sure you can’t wait to start watching.
So, to make things easier, I’ve put together an overview and a guide. When you’re done reading, you’ll have no problem getting into this great series.
Spy X Family Episode Overview
Spy X Family was announced in October 2021 and was scheduled for Spring 2022. In the announcement, the first season was set to contain 12 episodes.
The first episode of Spy X Family aired on April 9, 2022. It introduced two of the main characters, a Westalian Spy code-named ‘Twilight’ (alias Loid Forger) and Anya (an orphan), and adequately explored their respective backgrounds.
So here’s a quick recap:
Loid is a spy and Anya is a girl aged between 4 to 5 years old. The storyline starts to take shape when Loid adopts Anya due to a mission that was assigned to him. A mission that would see him infiltrate a prestigious school.
Even with Anya on board, the two still don’t make up a typical family unit. And Loid finds himself in need of a mother for his new daughter.
The search doesn’t take long, however, as Yor Briar agrees to marry him for her own reasons.
Loid assumes that he’s the only one keeping secrets or holding all the cards, or as some would put it, “pulling all the strings.” What he doesn’t know is that Anya is a telepath and Yor, a skilled assassin.
The family unit is complete and ready for their next challenge – Anya’s admission into the prestigious Elden academy.
Episode 4: The Prestigious School’s Interview
Keeping you up to speed:
The fourth episode of Spy X Family aired on April 30 2022. It features a Forger family visit to the Elden Academy grounds after Anya passes the written test.
Each family present on the school grounds is secretly being monitored by Eden Academy instructors. They are deemed unworthy of the institution at the slightest sign of a “lack of elegance.”
The Forger family is perfectly prepared for this and manages to evade traps set by the instructors themselves. Much to the delight of an Eden Academy housemaster named Henry Henderson.
The final stage of the interview process doesn’t go so well. During the questioning, an ill-willed housemaster evokes hurtful memories from Anya’s past, which leads to Loid losing his temper.
Henry Henderson puts in a good word for the group and Anya is accepted through the waiting list. Now that the first objective is cleared, Loid moves to the next stage of his plan.
Episode 7: The Target’s Second Son
In case you were wondering:
The seventh episode of Spy X Family was released on May 21, 2021. For the sake of Loid’s mission, Anya has the task of getting closer to the son of a politician.
How is it going? Let’s find out.
Anya has not made a good first impression. She even punches her target, Damian Desmond, straight in the face due to his excessive taunting.
For the sake of his mission, Loid needs her to apologize. After successive failed attempts caused mostly by Anya’s first friend Becky Blackbell, she successfully apologizes to Damian.
Damian outwardly rejects the apology, though he blushes like crazy before running off; signifying that Damian may have feelings for Anya.
As the Damian route goes up in smoke, Loid decides to explore a different option for Anya to take.
Now, I’m sure you are eager to find out what happens next. If so, here are a few airing updates to note.
