“Spy x Family” Review

“All people have a side of themselves they can’t reveal to others,” Loid Forger said.

Known as a man of one hundred faces, Agent Twilight is a master spy who is tasked with a new mission known as Operation Strix. The objective of this mission is to maintain a peaceful relationship between countries Westalis and Ostania, by gaining information from reclusive politician Donovan Desmond. Now living a sheltered life, Donovan Desmond only goes out in public to attend private events hosted by the elite private school, Eden Academy, which his sons attend. To maintain his facade, Agent Twilight takes on the alias of “Loid Forger,” a psychiatrist and loving family man. He adopts a child named Anya to attend Eden Academy. To keep up appearances Agent Twilight convinces a City Hall Clerk named Yor Briar to enter into a fake relationship with him and pose as his wife for the sake of the Edens admissions interview. Each member of the Forger family has secrets of their own, but how far are they willing to go to protect those secrets from the ones they’re supposed to love the most?

“Spy x Family” perfectly captures the true meaning of family. While Agent Twilight may be able to diffuse bombs or go undercover as a smuggler, parenthood is an entirely different issue for him. This show has a brilliant blend of comedy and intrigue making it widely popular with anime fans around the world. At the end of the day this show proves that even with all of the societal expectations of maintaining a perfect family, it’s okay to relax sometimes and have fun. Although the main characters of the show usually find themselves caught up in an assortment of random shenanigans, they always have a place to go at the end of the day. The home of the Forger family.

Personally speaking, Spy x Family is undoubtedly one of my favorite animes of all time. I would suggest the show to all anime watchers, whether you’re just getting into anime and need to find a place to start, or it seems like you’ve run out of anime shows because you’ve seen so many. Within the first episode, this show captivated my heart and I couldn’t wait to share it with my family, the people who mean the most to me.
