Synopsis

Corrupt politicians, frenzied nationalists, and other warmongering forces constantly jeopardize the thin veneer of peace between neighboring countries Ostania and Westalis. In spite of their plots, renowned spy and master of disguise "Twilight" fulfills dangerous missions one after another in the hope that no child will have to experience the horrors of war.

In the bustling Ostanian city of Berlint, Twilight dons the alias of "Loid Forger," an esteemed psychiatrist. However, his true intention is to gather intelligence on prominent politician Donovan Desmond, who only appears rarely in public at his sons' school: the prestigious Eden Academy. Enlisting the help of unmarried city hall clerk Yor Briar to act as his wife and adopting the curious six-year-old orphan Anya as his daughter, Loid enacts his master plan. He will enroll Anya in Eden Academy, where Loid hopes she will excel and give him the opportunity to meet Donovan without arousing suspicion.

Unfortunately for Loid, even a man of his talents has trouble playing the figure of a loving father and husband. And just like Loid is hiding his true identity, Yor—who is an underground assassin known as "Thorn Princess"—and Anya—an esper who can read people's minds—have no plans to disclose their own secrets either. Although this picture-perfect family is founded on deception, the Forgers gradually come to understand that the love they share for one another trumps all else.

I remember when I started reading the manga, I couldn't get enough of it. I devoured every chapter. And as such, I prefer that medium over the anime adaptation. But, I also see some pacing issues in the anime that make some of the story elements feel more sluggish than when reading it in the manga, where everything flows so well together from one thing to the next. However, that doesn't mean that this anime is bad by anime means, I quite enjoyed the first season (26 episodes not 12 like is listed here).

The premise of the show is very interesting. An assassin who ...

Mixed Feelings
It's a bizarre mix of elements from an American film with anime elements. In my opinion, it shines the most when it's being bullshit and makes no sense at all. But the moment it tries to take itself seriously, everything falls apart.

This happens because the structure of the series is not something that allows it to be taken seriously. This is evident even from the fact that any character other than the main trio is extremely one-dimensional, in addition to the fact that the only personality of all the women in the series is loving the protagonist.

Despite all the ...

hahaha that was LITERALLY a kid's show I just watched. Like, I might show my child this show in the future and they would really enjoy it. You know how lots of slice of life animes are in middle school or high school because that's the target audience they're trying to hit? This show isn't meant to be slice of life but anya is in kindergarten so it literally could be. i really don't think ANYTHING interesting happened in that show like at all. Some good funny moments though. Understandably there is probably more interesting things happening later in the show but I"m probably not ...
