Spy X Family – Extreme wholesomeness with comedy

Hey guys what is up welcome back to my blog I’m so thankful that you guys took the time out of your day to read my blog post. Hope you all are safe and healthy. You must have already seen this one by now, the memes must have been on your timeline and the funny moments’ edits as well. This is one of the most wholesome anime I ever watched and was recommended by a friend and I almost didn’t take his suggestion, that would have been a mistake. Anyways, MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD, I mean what can I spoil here anyway?

Rival nations of Westalis and Ostania are in an information war with one another and in order to prevent war from breaking out, a Westalian agent code-named “Twilight”, said to be the best spy ever, is tasked with spying on Donovan Desmond, leader of the National Unity Party in Ostania. Desmond however is not someone who doesn’t appear in public at all Twilight needs to enroll a child in the same private school as Desmond’s son and get close to Desmond under the cover of being a parent. To do this mission he becomes Loid Forger and adopts a young orphan girl named Anya who is a telepath and marries a woman named Yor Briar who is a professional assassin. Loid does not know about the nature of the family he has created, and Yor doesn’t know the identity of her husband either, however, Anya knows the truth about them both and there’s only one thing she can think of, ‘excitement’. As Twilight, or rather Loid learns to be a good father and get Anya closer to Desmond’s son, Yor tries to be a good mother while keeping her assassin work under the wraps, Anya enjoys life with this new and somewhat weird family where shenanigans happen on the daily.

Twilight, AKA Loid Forger, is the best spy who has created an entire family to make sure that his mission succeeds. Yor Briar, professional assassin who wants to conceal her identity by marrying Loid and Anya, the orphan with the sad childhood and incredible power who just wants to live a good exciting life with these two. These are the main characters in the story. While these characters aren’t exactly complex they aren’t all simple either. We see that Loid has a reason to be a spy, Yor has a reason to be an assassin and still care for her family, and Anya herself has had a traumatic childhood and while mostly she just acts like the child she is, her childish innocence combined with her power makes her a little more mature at times. The major focus of the story is not on character development however it would be wrong to say that these characters do not develop at all, they all get their fair share of development. There are multiple other characters who all play their role in making the story fun.

The beautiful animation is the first thing that I noticed when I was watching this anime, each and every scene is well animated and pretty to look at which is something to be deeply appreciated because you can clearly see how much effort went into making the scenes look good consistently. The story though not majorly focused on action, does provide some really great action which when combined with the smooth animation is really good. The thing that Spy X Family does focus on, comedy, is absolutely hilarious with each and every joke, each and every moment being well placed to make you laugh out loud and release all your worries. Things also get emotional in this anime and while again that is never the main focus, these emotional moments only serve to make the story a whole more wholesome. The anime also constantly brings in new things to keep things fresh and exciting. Spy X Family does well what it does do but what it does is not much and while that may be a turnoff for some people, I wouldn’t call this a fault. The anime is focused on being funny and wholesome and as long as it does that well I will not have compalints. Sometimes though the actions of the characters can be dumb enough to seem unrealistic given their backgrounds and while Spy X Family gets away with it because it’s all for the sake of comedy, it’s still annoying sometimes.

Sometimes things don’t go according to plan and that’s fine. This is what Loid’s character actually shows, as a spy he intends to build a regular family to make his mission successful however his family itself consists of a bunch of irregular people, and that combined with the fact that every time something or the other gets in his way when he tries to execute his plans, one might say that it must be frustrating for him and it is, however, Loid never gives up and adapts and sometimes things change for the better and that is a beautiful perspective to have on life. Not everything will go according to your plan.

The anime has 12 episodes right now and has a second cour coming soon which means that more of these characters and that is not a bad thing at all. There’s not much to talk about the finale since this anime is much more about wholesomeness and being cute than the story. Personally, I feel that Spy X Family is a great stress buster and will make you laugh hard but that is all it is, there’s not much to it and for that reason, I rate it a 6/10.

So that is it for this post guys hope you got some value from this.  Thank you guys for reading to the end hit me up on Instagram and Twitter with your thoughts and if you have any ideas on what I should write about. Stay safe. Thank you again and I’ll see you all next week.
