I was scrolling through a very legal anime site one Saturday, looking for what to watch and saw Spy x Family. The description was ridiculous: “The story follows Loid, a spy who has to “build a family” to execute a mission. He adopts a little girl, Anya, who, unknown to him, is a telepath, and Yor, the woman that agrees to marry him, is a skilled assassin.”
It was chaotic but also funny as fuck, and here’s why you should let them become a big part of your weekend for the next few months.
The whole charm of Spy X Family is watching Loid and Yor interact with each other, completely unaware of their secret identities. Anya, of course, is the little weirdo that knows all their secrets but is there for the laughs and giggles. Please, close your doors before watching sha. Your laughter will have people worried.
Unconventional love story
Of course, there’s a little romance between Loid and Yor, but that’s not what I’m talking about. It’s the love Loid, Yor, and Anya develop for each other that makes the show. One time Loid rented a castle to recreate an episode of Anya’s favourite show, and Yor used her assassin fighting skills to beat up her daughter’s bully. I just had to root for them.
If not for anything, watch it for Anya; saint of all children, lover of peanuts, spy movies, fangirl, and best in foolish jokes. Since Anya can read minds, when Yor and Loid are busy lying to each other, she speaks the audience’s mind when she’s just there like, wow, these guys lie a lot, but what’s my own?
Kids are the ghetto, but she makes them seem great.
The series is a bad bitch that does it all
Spy X Family transcends genre. If you want action, Yor and Loid will give that to you in abundance. If you want to laugh your head off, Anya exists. Don’t forget the romance between Yor and Loid. Honestly, which anime series is out there doing it like them?
The very sexy age-appropriate main character
This is very important. Yor and Loid are hot as fuck and age-appropriate to thirst after. If you’re into thirsting after animated characters — not us, though, y’all be easy — prepare to be obsessed with both of them. Sorry, not sorry.
As we are all currently in the business of healing our inner children, if you watch Spy x Family, you’ll be 50 per cent close to your goal. Sources have even said that it cures depression. It’s me. I am “Sources”.
