It should be noted that reliable sources to this site confirmed since May 2020 that the popular manga of Tatsuya Endo would have an anime adaptation, and since then we confirmed that it would be released in 2022. However, to date neither the official announcement nor the release date has been made official, although a clue was already given in a recent interview that was later modified.

SPY x FAMILY Synopsis

For the agent known as “Twilight”, no order is too high if it is for the sake of peace. Operating as Westalis’ master spy, Twilight works tirelessly to prevent extremists from unleashing a war with neighboring Ostania. For his last mission, he must investigate the politician from Ostania Donovan Desmond infiltrating his son’s school: the prestigious Eden Academy. Thus, the agent faces the most difficult task of his career: getting married, having a child and playing family.

Twilight, or “Loid Forger,” quickly adopts the humble orphan Anya to play the role of a six-year-old daughter and a possible student at Eden Academy. As a wife, she meets Yor Briar, a distracted office worker who needs a fake partner to impress her friends. However, Loid is not the only one with a hidden nature. Yor is actually the deadly assassin “Thorn Princess” and, for her, marrying Loid creates the perfect cover. Meanwhile, Anya is not the ordinary girl she seems to be; she is an Esper, the product of secret experiments that allow her to read minds. Although she discovers their true identities, Anya is delighted that her new parents are cool secret agents! She would never tell them, of course. That would spoil the fun.
