The long-awaited Spy x Family anime has finally been released on various streaming platforms. This spy anime immediately topped the ratings on various sites.
Spy x Family tells the story of spies, assassins, and telepaths who disguise themselves as a family.
It begins when a skilled spy under the codename “Twilight” is assigned to carry out Operation Strix.
Twilight must investigate the plans of a dangerous man who could threaten the peace between East and West.
To complete the mission, Twilight must have a wife and children to approach his target, Donovan Desmond.
But Twilight’s fake wife and children are not ordinary people, because they are people with special abilities.
His wife Yor is a hitman, while Anya, his daughter, is a telepath or esper.
Will their identities be revealed over time?

Spy x Family finds its humor by crossing Cold War-era spy drama with more realistic domestic issues.
This anime could be called a slice of life in disguise because while there are moments of action and espionage narrative, it’s mostly about a man dealing with being a new father.
So far, the Spy x Family anime has had a lot of funny scenes, especially when the show plays a completely straightforward mix of absurdism and dark comedy.
There are a lot of interesting things in Spy x Family, and it looks like this anime will become a popular one because of its fresh story.
Even so, some characters are too over the top, I don’t know if it’s intentional for cuteness or not.
