Spy x Family has been on my radar for a long time. I heard about it from a friend and then really wanted to read it! Word of mouth is great for marketing, eh?

This book is absolutely marvellous, and all the fun of a VIZ book! It's thrilling and yet fun, all at the same time. It felt like the fun that Man from U.N.C.L.E. gave me when that film came out.

So, our lead dude Twilight is a spy. He's a great spy, but is suddenly given a very difficult mission: marry and have a kid to complete the next mi

First of all, I'd like to thank NetGalley, VIZ Media, and Tatsuya Endo for generously giving me the amazing opportunity to read an ARC (advanced readers copy) of Spy x Family, Vol. 1 in exchange for an honest review.


Release Date: June 2nd 2020


I had so much fun reading this! At first I was hesitant, because this is actually the first manga I've ever read *cue gasp*! I was already a few pages in when I felt a bit lost, and then I remembered that manga is supposed to be read right to

I. Am. In. Love. I read the first two volumes of this manga today, and it's this perfect mix of a totally absurd plot with very real feelings in characters who aren't used to having them. The setup: A spy adopts a child as part of a mission and doesn't realize she's a telepath, and enters a marriage of convenience with a woman who wants to reassure her brother she won't be single forever - except she's secretly a contract killer. I can barely follow the politics of the fictional country where th ...more

This manga is a breath of fresh air! Its rather original concept and really likable characters make it so fun to read. It has lots of potential and the art is so pretty! Therefore, here, have a peanut ~

It's fantasy cold war espionage smashed violently into over the top manga!

I greatly enjoyed the ridiculous story, I do like it when my manga goes full bore nuts and also is funny. And fun characters!

And the art is perfect for the story. Yet another manga series I will have to keep my eye on.

(Kindly received a review copy from VIZ Media through Edelweiss)

God this manga has such a unique concept. I really love this series a lot and im so glad volume 1 is out in English now. Volume 1 is really solid, it cuts off at just the right point to make you wanna read the rest (which I've done before oop). The story is really interesting and gripping, and honestly it's so cute and funny too omg, Anya is adorable ...more

Honestly this manga wasn't even on my radar until I saw my friend Karina's wonderful review (go check it out if you haven't already!). A noir/comedy mashup with the found family trope AND compelling/endearing characters??? THAT'S SOME GOOD STUFF RIGHT THERE 💯

And I love Anya and will do anything to protect her, just saying.

If you like your spy stories with a dash of comedy and sweetness, definitely try SPYxFAMILY!!!*

Super-spy "Twilight" is on a mission that entails infiltrating an elite children's school. Unfortunately, he doesn't have a spouse or child. So he'll have to find some! He goes to a random orphanage and adopts a little girl, and happens upon a single woman in town, and for their own reasons, each agrees to join Twilight's household and form a faux-family.

It turns out that the child, Anya, is a telepath, and Yor is an assassin! Anya knows the adults' identities, but neither of the other two know

Twilight is a master spy who always completes his mission no matter what he has to do. This next one might just be impossible as he’s required to obtain a wife and child to infiltrate an elite private school. Only he doesn’t know his wife, Yor, is an assassin and his child, Anya, is a telepath.

I just loved this little family. Well first I fell for a Twilight who is a debonair spy and knows how to do everything elegantly and with flair. He’s never had to rely on anyone but himself to complete a m

Spy x Family is SUPER charming, fun, exciting, and I challenge anyone not to laugh.

So Loid, our main hero, code-named Twilight for being the best spy whoever spied needs to now recruit a family for his next mission. So he first tries to get a daughter and going to a orphanage he finds Anya. Anya isn't a normal girl though, she can read minds, but she's also the most adorable fucking 6 year old EVER. Then after he acquires daughter he must find a wife, and lo and behold he finds Yor, a fucking a

a spy, and assassin, and a telepath pretending to be a family while being entirely unaware of what the others are. that alone is a selling point.

I really enjoyed this action-packed comedy manga. "Twilight" who also goes under the alias "Loid Forger" has devoted his life to his career of being a spy, where getting married and having children is just not in the cards for him. Until one day, things take an interesting turn for Forger. In order to prevent a war orchestrated by an Ostanian political leader named Donovan Desmond, he has to ironically enough get married and have a kid.

And so, his mission to find and form his own little "fake fa

A cheesy fun comic spy thriller along the lines of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. A spy code-named Twilight must gather an instant family to give him access to a target who only goes out in public to attend events at his child's exclusive, elite school. A lot of the comedy comes from the fact that Twilight is not the only one in the family with a secret. His new wife works days at city hall, but is using the quickie marriage to provide cover from her overly-protective brother as well as her moonlighting jo ...more
