Along with the news of its release date, there is also a new key visual. It shows Loid, Yor, and Anya walking down the street like a normal family. But their “true” identities appear below them like a reflection. Spy x Family is a story about the Forger family, which is a cover family Loid created to fulfill a mission. Unbeknownst to him, his fake wife is actually an assassin and his fake daughter is really a mind reader. Hijinks ensue.

Viz Media licensed the tankobon volumes for those who would like to read physical versions of the series. But Spy x Family is also available online, as it is serialized in Shonen Jump+. While some of the earliest chapters and newest ones are free to read, you will need to spend 30 points to rent chapters in between for 48 hours.

Spy x Family will be part of the Spring 2022 anime line-up. It will debut on April 9, 2022 in Japan. Other shows that will air alongside it include season 2 of Komi Can’t Communicate, Yu-Gi-Oh: Go Rush!!, and Ao Ashi.
