What is Spy x Family?

Initially, Spy x Family is a semi-monthly pre-published manga in the Shonen Jump+, Shueisha’s online publishing service. Its publication is still in progress and the manga has no less than 61 chapters. The Japanese are waiting for the ninth volume while in France, the collection is compiled for the moment in 7 volumes with an eighth book expected for May 5 at the editions Kurokawa. In addition to the classic format, the eighth volume will be released in bookstores in a collector’s box version, an object that fans of the series will be eager to acquire.

What is the release date of Spy x Family?

The animated adaptation of Spy x Family is scheduled for release on April 9, 2022. The series is among the most anticipated new releases in the spring of 2022. The anime notably comes out at the same time as the highly anticipated third season of Kaguya-Sama Love is War. However, the duration of the series remains unknown. We still don’t know what arcs season 1 will cover compared to the manga and if a second season is already planned (or not). This information will certainly be communicated once the current season is over.

Spy x Family arrives in a few days in the huge catalog of Crunchyroll. Since its merger with wakanim, the site has a catalog that can be compared to the Netflix of Japanese animation. The question is whether the new licenses will not get lost too much in the Crunchyroll interface in the middle of the new seasons of the licenses that are very popular with Japanese animation fans. The platform is working on a redesign. Indeed, a beta version of the site is available with an interface closer to major SVOD services, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ in mind.
