The Family That Got Me Back Into Anime

It has been a while since I have talked about anime here. Funny since it was partly my love of anime that got me blogging in the first place and how I ended up meeting the amazing folk at OWLS. 

I stopped actively watching anime in 2020. Since then, I barely watch anything, mostly binge-watching old favourites and maybe the odd film here and there. I’ve talked about that in a previous post.

Then I started watching Spy X Family.

In case you haven’t seen it yourself, I’ll give you a basic plot outline. A spy known as “Twilight”, currently going by Loid Forger, must keep an eye on a key political figure. The problem is that his target is a bit on the reclusive side. So he decides to try and get close by way of the target’s kids. He adopts a young orphan named Anya to play the part of his darling daughter and gets married to a woman known as Yor. Unbeknownst to him, his new wife is a trained assassin plus his new daughter is a mind reader. Hilarity ensues. 

Spy X Family has reignited my love for anime. It is the cutest, funniest and most wholesome show I have watched in ages. Despite being a marriage based on deception on both ends the family dynamic between Loid, Yor and Anya are adorable! The show is a lot of fun, seeing two badasses get flustered and work hard to hide their secrets from each other while raising Anya. 

Speaking of Anya, she is the cutest! Poor girl just wants a home, so she uses her abilities to help her dad out whenever possible. She doesn’t tell him about her powers or that she is well aware of his occupation for fear of him handing her back over to the orphanage that experimented on her, giving her those gifts in the first place. She is easily my favourite character in the show. 

Is the show overhyped? Honestly, no. It is everything it is hyped up to be. I’m glad it is getting the spotlight as otherwise, I might have missed it. I’m going to try and read the manga soon too. If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to! Even if you are not typically into anime, it is worth a watch of the wholesome chaos alone.
