Review | Spy x FAMILY – Chapter 17

This SpyxFamily review contains spoilers. If you haven’t seen the chapter, we encourage you to do so and then come back to read the review.

Chapter 17: Operation Griffith

Anya takes the family photo with Bond to impress Damian, but Becky takes it away because she fell in love with Lloyd. Change of strategy, they have to craft and Anya makes a “Band” and then, because she read his mind, help the second son to make his faucet and therefore impress his father. The help is worse than expected, he does not cooperate but is delayed and Damian is angry. With little time and almost no material to do what she can, Anya reworks “Bond” and makes a graph and tells her to put it aside. Unexpectedly, the work of the second son moves the judge and he wins a prize, although the loneliness of the child is still present even surrounded by “friends”.

Chapter Opinion

Anya was really impressed in this chapter, even though her behavior is understandable for being a girl and even though she wants to help her, she wants to do what she wants, that’s why the drive for the tap. To read minds in theory, Anya should be more empathetic, however, she is not, she is still a girl and it matches that behavior. Even Becky, taking her friend’s photo just because the father is handsome (and he is). That time when we thought we matured faster by falling in love.

All this led us to something very sad, present at work. Damian is in many ways the antithesis of Anya.

Damian’s loneliness

Are Damian’s friends really friends or sycophants? Did the second child find a father’s love? A child also creates expectations about what he sees and hears. He saw what other parents are like and he listens to what they do with their children. From here he himself created a situation where that is possible if he meets certain requirements that I can summarize in: Excellence. If he succeeds in achieving something exceptional, his father will notice him and he will get something he always wanted, respect.

Because of that kind of thing, she seems like the antithesis of Anya to me. It’s not that Loid is rich, nor that he has a blood family (where the ties are supposed to be stronger), and yet he gets more love from Loid and Yor and they are present in his life. Although Loid expects things from Anya, she gives her time and realizes that she is a girl. Like Damian, Anya pushes herself too hard, but doesn’t get frustrated by her mistakes. Besides, Becky isn’t a sycophant like the ones around Damian. The rich boy is alone and without escape, for now.

The iron woman

These chapters are, and will continue to be, organized differently from the first part. I don’t remember there being so many double chapters in the first part. From the second batch, the following one will be the third one with two songs. In the end, other things tend to develop during life and time and time again the purpose goes through stages that have nothing to do with the mission. The good thing is that they show us certain things about other characters, now it was Sylvia’s turn (a waifu full), they explained his birth, what he does and his nicknames. If they had talked about his past and those things I think it would have been better, he’s a very usable character because he’s interesting. At that time, time was already short, but I think that is an outstanding debt.

The post-credits preview some of what follows, where Yuri will appear and will probably be Anya’s tutor, I want to see that uncle-niece relationship. The laughs will not be lacking, I hope.


La seule chose que j'ai faite, c'est de jeter le bon sens par la fenêtre, je ne sais pas pour vous mais ça marche pour moi et dans les anime ça marche aussi en général, plus point !!!!.
