SPY x FAMILY will premiere for a second season this fall

During the event”2023 Taipei International Comics & Animation Festival“, co-founder WIT Studio, Nakatake Tetsuyamentioned that the production of the new projects Spy x FAMILYincluding the two main story films and the second season, is doing well, and is scheduled to premiere during the upcoming fall season in Japan (considering the hemisphere, it would be between September and December this year).

Twitter user”@_mika60_” was in charge of the translation of the fragment dedicated to Spy x FAMILYand write his network thread:

  • The first animation cels shown in the background are from the fifth episode of the first season, during the fight between Loid and Yor. Chief animation director Asano Kyoji says that since this part was original, they wanted to add more action/battle sequences.
  • They also follow from the fifth episode, when Loid dresses Anya in the pilot suit. Asano Kyoji said that his main specialty/goal is to represent Anya with the best cuteness. Nakatake Tetsuya says that Anya’s size makes it easy to pick her up and carry her over his shoulder.
  • Below, Asano Kyoji presents character design sheets by Shimada Kazuaki of CloverWorks. Asano’s job as Chief Animation Director is to ensure that character designs and their subsequent performances by team animators are up to standard and accurate.
  • The next panel shows Anya’s countless expressions. Asano mentioned all the ones he drew himself. He said he felt very happy to represent them. The next part shows off weapon skins, including the rocket launcher that didn’t appear in the manga!
  • The last part shows some episodes of the SPY x FAMILY story. The line drawings are much more detailed than the final product, but having more complexity at the start helps the final animation look clear and detailed.
  • Nakatake says that anyone who has raised children probably knows the way Loid fell on the couch. Many real-life parents probably end up in this state after a hard day’s work.

The first season of twenty-five episodes was divided into two parts, and the first aired in the season of Spring-2022 (April-June)and the second broadcast in the Conradh na Gaeilge season Autumn-2022 (October-December). For her, Tatsuya-Endo started publishing the manga through the website Shōnen Jump Plus from the publisher Shueisha in March 2019.

Summary of SPY x FAMILY

For the agent known as “Twilight”, no order is too tall if it is for the sake of peace. Acting as the chief spy of Westalis, Twilight works tirelessly to prevent extremists from unleashing war on neighboring Ostania. For his latest mission, he must investigate Austrian politician Donovan Desmond infiltrating his son’s school: the prestigious Eden Academy. Therefore, the actor has the most difficult task of his profession: to get married, have a child and play a family.

Twilight, or “Loid Forger,” quickly adopts the humble orphan Anya to take on the role of six-year-old daughter and prospective student at Eden Academy. As a wife, he meets Yor Briar, a distracted office worker who needs a partner to impress her friends. However, Lloyd is not the only one with a hidden nature. Yor is the deadly assassin “Princess of Thorn” and Loid’s marriage creates a perfect cover for her. Meanwhile, Anya is not the ordinary girl it seems; she is an esper, the product of secret experiments that allow her to read minds. While discovering their own identities, Anya is thrilled that her new parents are amazing secret agents! She wouldn’t tell them, of course. That would ruin the fun.
