For the agent known as "Twilight," no order is too tall if it is for the sake of peace. Operating as Westalis' master spy, Twilight works tirelessly to prevent extremists from sparking a war with neighboring country Ostania. For his latest mission, he must investigate Ostanian politician Donovan Desmond by infiltrating his son's school: the prestigious Eden Academy. Thus, the agent faces the most difficult task of his career: get married, have a child, and play family.

Twilight, or "Loid Forger," quickly adopts the unassuming orphan Anya to play the role of a six-year-old daughter and prospective Eden Academy student. For a wife, he comes across Yor Briar, an absent-minded office worker who needs a pretend partner of her own to impress her friends. However, Loid is not the only one with a hidden nature. Yor moonlights as the lethal assassin "Thorn Princess." For her, marrying Loid creates the perfect cover. Meanwhile, Anya is not the ordinary girl she appears to be; she is an esper, the product of secret experiments that allow her to read minds. Although she uncovers their true identities, Anya is thrilled that her new parents are cool secret agents! She would never tell them, of course. That would ruin the fun.

Under the guise of "The Forgers," the spy, the assassin, and the esper must act as a family while carrying out their own agendas. Although these liars and misfits are only playing parts, they soon find that family is about far more than blood relations.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (62/? eps)
There is so much hype surrounding the anime from episode one that, when I didn't get it, I turned to the manga.

62 chapters in and here is my tally.

Number of completed missions = 2 (boat mission, Tennis mission)

Number of character arcs completed = 2 (The dog got an arc, the boy's sidekicks got a character moment)

Number of side missions completed = 1 (Nightfall got some leads)

Preliminary (10/? eps)
Hell, is this boring. Got baited into reading this because I see it getting so goddamn much praise and hype from everyone. What is this? Literally the most bland manga ever. There is no mystery surrounding the characters, at least it barely gets talked about. Just pointless 'missions' and close to no character development. This is a cool concept, but that's it. Hitman mom's and Anya's designs are nice. But the dad looks and acts like the most bland side character ever. All the other characters are forgettable as well. There's absolutely no depth to this story. This can't even be saved by its art. ...
