Rejoice, Spy x Family Fans! The anime adaptation has just released a brand new trailer! This trailer even teases the story and shows the voices of the main characters. Want to know more about how Loid, Yor and Anya sound in anime form? So check it out below:
A family of secret identities
Crunchyroll not only gives us a deeper insight into Spy x Family with this trailer Youtube, but they even give us a release date. Apparently we’ll see the Forger family in action on April 9, 2022. Not only that, but the anime will apparently be a Crunchyroll exclusive. That means if you want to watch it, you’ll have to head over to Crunchyroll.
Not only that, but there is a very real risk here of Crunchyroll getting locked out Spy x Family behind a paywall to watch. Unlike their previous policy of offering anime episodes to watch for free with ads, nothing less. It’s something they’ve been doing a lot of lately, starting with Demon Slayer: Entertainment District Arc. You might have to get your wallet out to watch the Forger Family hijinks here. In the end, it’s your money, so only you can choose whether or not to pay to watch this anime. However, as a fan of the manga, I would definitely recommend it. Let me explain:
Spy x Family: Details
Spy x Family will be the anime adaptation by Wit Studio and CloverWorks of Tatsuya Endo’s manga of the same name. As you can see from the trailer, this anime is the story of a family. The father is Loid Forger, the mother is Yor Forger and the daughter is Anya Forger. As the Forger family’s surname suggests, they are all liars in one way or another. Loid is secretly a deadly spy, Yor is secretly a deadly assassin, and Anya is secretly a not-so-lethal telepath. As the 3 of them decided to be the perfect family for their own reasons (mostly related to infiltrating a private academy in Loid’s case), you can imagine the hijinks that ensue. Seriously, the hijinks alone are worth it, not to mention the action and adventure.
An excerpt from the official synopsis of Spy x Family from Crunchyroll has a little more to say about it:
“Twilight” takes on the identity of psychiatrist Loid Forger and begins to search for members of his family. But Anya, the daughter he adopts, turns out to have the ability to read people’s minds, while his wife, Yor, is an assassin! As it is in their own interest to keep these facts hidden, they begin to live together while hiding their true identity.
World peace is now in the hands of this brand new family as they embark on an adventure full of surprises.
