The anime celebrated its TV premiere only a few weeks ago, but Spy x Family is already an absolute favorite with viewers.
The Spy x Family spy adventure kicked off with this year’s spring season. The plot is based on the manga of the same name and revolves around the Forger family, all of whose members have secret identities that they don’t know about each other. So far, the anime series has been very well received around the world.
Spy x Family: Top Rating on MyAnimeList
After just four episodes, Spy x Family can call itself one of the highest rated anime series of all time. On MyAnimeList, the world’s largest anime community and database, it currently sits in second place with a fan-rated 9.09 rating, even surpassing Attack on Titan’s third season which gets “only” 9.08 points.
The fantasy adventure Fullmetal Alchemist: Broterhood remains in the lead with 9.14 points out of 10. In contrast, Spy x Family carries the crown for the Spring 2022 season. The sequels Kaguya-sama: Love is War Ultra Romantic (8.98 points) and Kingdom season 4 (8.66 points) occupy second and third place respectively.
The makers probably didn’t expect the anime to be so successful. However, the manga already had a relatively large fan base. As reported by Comic Book and others, more than 17 million volumes have been sold to date worldwide. The launch of the anime adaptation further boosted sales.
With us, you can stream Spy x Family exclusively on Crunchyroll. The provider publishes a new episode every Saturday at 5:30 p.m. which was broadcast shortly before on Japanese television. The first three episodes are even available for free.
