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.

— Hello where, anime fans!
— Hi, overhyped seasonal show № 6934. What do you wanna offer to us today?
— Well, I'm a spy comedy about Kaguya and Shir... I mean, Lloyd and Yor. It's hilariously funny, just try it for yourself!
— Meh, another comedy about nippon students or nippon freaks? We've seen tons of them every fucking season. Anything else?
— B... but I don't use any Japanese cliches! I replaced them with 100% concentrated Western Cold War tropes.
— Spy comedy in a Cold War setting? Like The Man from U.N.C.L.E or something?
— Yeah, and both of the main characters don't know about each other secret read more

I don't consider SPY x FAMILY to be exceptional because it stands out as a "masterpiece" or "mind-blowing", but rather because it pushes all the right buttons.

Its over-the-top premise about a spy, assassin, and a psychic living as a family is a breath of fresh air from typical action-comedy shows. Consider a proposal with a grenade pin to be one of many examples of the sheer amount of ridiculousness in this show. Being able to handle a plot like this, however, is what makes it truly worth watching. One element that I particularly found enjoyable is how well the show is able to transition read more

Spy X Family met and exceeded my expectations. Twilight's cold autistic behavior is well represented by his inner monologue, which is even a surprise, since his interaction with the adorable anya is quite charismatic, and all of this is elevated due to the direction, the comic timing, the faces and mouths, and the well-executed action that is very satisfying managing to mix the comedy with the serious moments.

Highlighting the production, the work is being produced by wit studio in conjunction with CloverWorks, both of which are always responsible for well-produced works. The production being divided between the two improves the fact, since besides the read more

For what it's worth, I don't usually watch anime when it's airing. I'd patiently wait until it concludes. But the fact that Spy x Family has actually surpassed many shows despite being a newcomer, and that many of my friends have actually told me to watch it, intrigued me.

On the record, shows that have something to do with spies have actually never sparked an interest in me. That's why I initially thought Spy x Family would be boring just like the others in the competition. However, after only three episodes in, I came to a realization that I was in the wrong.
