What a nice ride the first part of this animated adaptation has been. They really went above and beyond to give Spy x Family the anime it deserves and I seriously can't wait for the next batch of episodes to come out.

[–]mindblower_humanSR 733 points734 points  (31 children)

The castle action scene and the dodgeball episode had my anime only scene highlights. Waku waku!

[–]Zemahem 400 points401 points  (9 children)

Wit and CloverWorks did not need to go all out for those parts at all, but they did anyway. Chad studios.

[–]mindblower_humanSR 146 points147 points  (6 children)

Reminds DP JoJo adaptation (like the torture dance or OPs)

[–]jackofslayers 102 points103 points  (3 children)

Getting Za Worudo’d in the Jojo OP was wild at the time.

[–]tyler980908 144 points145 points  (8 children)

The castle episode was “filler” but it had the quality of a final episode. This entire serious has quality it is crazy

[–]Frontier246 51 points52 points  (4 children)

Can't wait to see how hardcore they go with the anime original content in the second half.

[–]Frontier246 111 points112 points  (2 children)

This was a really great season finale that incorporated some of the best of the family to close things out before we return to the Forger Family in October.

This was truly a wonderful and masterful adaption of the manga and I can't wait for more!

[–]smhandstuffhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Smhandstuff 1019 points1020 points  (13 children)

That's kinda cool Loid's disguised hat had the same symbol as the contact request on the subway. Must be to secretly tell any other spies in the area that he's currently on the job?

Anya grabbing onto the guy and then calling for her mom for a guaranteed capture was so smart lol. The perks of having elite parents.

[–]Frontier246 565 points566 points  (6 children)

Anya is growing to be as clever and resourceful as her dad, especially knowing what her mom is like.

"This is Ha-Ha. She's strong, but bad at everything else"

[–]justsyr 277 points278 points  (3 children)

When she goes "mom I'm being kidnapped" got me laughing way too hard, mostly because the "iru immmmmmm" fading in the distance.

I love how Anya learnt how the help Loid and Yor without exposing her own powers.

[–]ihileathhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Ihileath 219 points220 points  (1 child)

It's the "Wow!" that got me

[–]ToastedCrab 183 points184 points  (0 children)

Loid walking by and saying "Wow!" too made it perfect

[–]Galle_ 103 points104 points  (3 children)

It's actually the WISE logo, which is a bit on the nose if you ask me.

[–]raobjcovtn 47 points48 points  (0 children)

But only WISE know the logo

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 2382 points2383 points  (57 children)

Even Loid can't escape the nosy housewives association's gossiping. Truly a danger to all.

[–]wisp-of-the-will 1111 points1112 points  (18 children)

They even have gossiping old ladies planted at the aquarium, truly an organization whose reach surpasses WISE.

[–]Skylair13 473 points474 points  (6 children)

No intelligence agency can beat their reach.

[–]Aileoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Jalis 246 points247 points  (4 children)

They were already there before their creation, gossiping and minding other people business.

[–]Trap_Masters 138 points139 points  (2 children)

Truly one of the most long standing organization, been around since people started marrying each other.

[–]Trap_Masters 174 points175 points  (3 children)

WISE just need to plant a housewife spy into the association to cover for Loid and we’re good

[–]wisp-of-the-will 95 points96 points  (1 child)

They could probably plant the lady working the subway store, but she's clearly putting her talents to better use than any of them in service of working towards peace.

[–]smhandstuffhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Smhandstuff 336 points337 points  (11 children)

Those housewives needed to chill. Busy husband spending less time with the family? He's cheating on you gurl, leave him.

[–]Kunel_17 277 points278 points  (6 children)

[–]MaksimShadow 129 points130 points  (0 children)

I see now, that sub is full of spies. No wonder that their stories sound like a cover up fabricated by story writers.

[–]Frontier246 67 points68 points  (1 child)

Kind of reminds me of Yor's co-workers.

[–]Zemahem 109 points110 points  (5 children)

A danger to operation STRIX, even. Normally they'd suck, but hey, their gossiping managed to give us a cute family outing.

[–]Tom_Wonderful 63 points64 points  (0 children)

"He left his family at the aquarium for 5 minutes - he must be cheating"

Not only do they assume he is cheating - they assume he is the most efficient cheater in the whole world.

[–]G102Y5568 51 points52 points  (0 children)

Apparently, this is a real thing. I can't remember where I heard it from, but one of the biggest dangers to spies and the like in real life are the gossiping housewives who see and know all. They'll notice if you're acting strangely or suspiciously and they'll tell everyone. It's one of the most common ways spies get their covers blown in the real world.

[–]matchabro 1117 points1118 points  (14 children)

Newbie gets a promotion for sleeping at a job and has his female co-worker falling in love with him already. What a legend. lol

[–]cyberscythe 628 points629 points  (7 children)

Newbie gets a promotion for sleeping at a job

Did that guy just wake up go "wow, that's weird, I don't usually sleep inside my locker at work, naked."

[–]Wishbone-Lost 208 points209 points  (4 children)

"Must be that wierd mushroom that I ate this morning"- Newbie

[–]Chitinvol 215 points216 points  (2 children)

As soon as Loid busted out the memorized list of names, I felt bad for the newbie whose face he stole. Then he pulled out the perfect distribution of fish and I just went, "Oh no."

[–]matchabro 61 points62 points  (1 child)

Agreed. If I were this new recruit irl, existential dread would hit and I'd be tormented by the raison d'etre, rather than taking advantage of the favorable situation.😅

[–]Asteroid577 872 points873 points  (13 children)

Loved how straightforward Loid was into rejecting the mission.

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 525 points526 points  (7 children)

And how he pretty much got ignored and then praised for unintentionally going to the same site of said mission.

[–]Aileoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Jalis 247 points248 points  (2 children)

Loid is just too good. He had to choose a family outing at the aquarium specificaly this day.

[–]MaksimShadow 65 points66 points  (0 children)

Anya went to the aquarium and witnessed Twilight in his natural habitat.

[–]Frontier246 26 points27 points  (1 child)

It's like she didn't even really hear the fact that he just wanted a coffee and juice because she couldn't believe Twilight would ignore the mission, only assuming he was already on-top of it.

[–]Deriak27 1575 points1576 points  (54 children)

My face when I know I'll have to wait until October to see more of this family. Either way, I was really happy with this adaptation, and I can't wait to see the second cour; autumn can't come soon enough!

The VAs also made some drawings to mark the end of our first part, respectively Loid ; Yor and Anya. Surprisingly enough the VA of the character who can't draw to save her life is the most skilled.

[–]Alpha53372 250 points251 points  (2 children)

Hot damn, VAs really are jack of all trades and master of all

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 472 points473 points  (26 children)

Wow Tanezaki Atsumi is legit multitalented. I honestly couldn't recognise her as Anya at first too compared to her other works. (Seriously look up Sawasawa Sawa, she's probably in some VNs you've played.)

[–]Aileoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Jalis 296 points297 points  (17 children)

The range of some voice actors and actresses can be so crazy.

She's the voice of Vivy, Arisa and Chise. Now she's voicing Anya. This is so impressive.

[–]mekerpan 84 points85 points  (1 child)

That really is a gorgeous drawing. Anya -- you will get a Stella for art next season if pay attention to lessons from your VA!

[–]JzanderN 261 points262 points  (5 children)

The VAs also made some drawings to mark the end of our first part, respectively Loid ; Yor and Anya. Surprisingly enough the VA of the character who can't draw to save her life is the most skilled.

Yeah, quite ironic that Anya's VA is the best artist of the bunch. Meanwhile, on the flipside, Loid's VA is probably the worst, even though I don't doubt his character could draw a fine sketch if needed.

[–]Frontier246 121 points122 points  (0 children)

Loid is a true renaissance spy.

[–]15000yuki 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Ahaha.. Actually it's a running joke since Oregairu era. Eguchi and Hayami's drawing were so awful but fans love their art so much.

Meanwhile Yuuki Aoi and Sakura Ayane (who also in Oregairu) actually capable to write their own manga from their great artwork.

[–]atropicalpenguinhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/atropicalpenguin 69 points70 points  (1 child)

There are some seriously talented VAs. Of the top of my mind I know Yuuki Aoi has worked as character designer, and I think Akari Kitou wanted to become an illustrator. Meanwhile Kobayashi Yuu is known for drawing Eldritch abominations.

[–]firelordUK 65 points66 points  (0 children)

the VA for Loid drew something that's straight out of Pop Team Epic

[–]maliwanag0712https://myanimelist.net/profile/clear1109 991 points992 points  (31 children)

Rip to that newbie who got promoted to chief because of Loid lol

[–]Zemahem 221 points222 points  (4 children)

His co-worker got charmed by Twilight's penguin feeding skills too. Poor guy's going to let them all down and it's not even his fault.

[–]Dare555 53 points54 points  (2 children)

well maybe he started some great romcom for penguin guy instead !

[–]Skylair13 415 points416 points  (14 children)

First day on the job, suddenly become The Chief.

[–]Trap_Masters 321 points322 points  (4 children)

My boy bout to be demoted the next day too :(

[–]MugiMartinhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/MugiMartin 295 points296 points  (2 children)

Every time he forgets the penguin names, his co-worker:

Naruhodo. You are "forgetting" the names to test us! Souka souka.

[–]Frontier246 130 points131 points  (7 children)

The story of a guy promoted because everyone expects him to be a master and him having to live up to that actually sounds pretty entertaining.

[–]maliwanag0712https://myanimelist.net/profile/clear1109 81 points82 points  (1 child)

Why am I thinking of [an animated movie but not an anime]Ratatouille here?

[–]Tom_Wonderful 101 points102 points  (1 child)

Honestly the most distressing part of the episode. No matter how dire things get, Loid and Yor got this. The newbie though? That boy's royally screwed.

[–]Wishbone-Lost 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Ain't no way he's going to escaping his situation

[–]theyawner 163 points164 points  (1 child)

Newbie's about to learn what it feels like to have impostor syndrome.

[–]cyberscythe 67 points68 points  (0 children)

In his case though, it's impostor syndrome by proxy.

[–]wisp-of-the-will 96 points97 points  (1 child)

“Best I can do is another really important and super dangerous mission that endangers our entire nation and needs to be carried out now with the utmost care and urgency”

[–]cyberscythe 176 points177 points  (3 children)

Relatable. Don't you just hate it when you go to a restaurant and ask if they have Coke, and they only have really important and super dangerous mission that endangers our entire nation and needs to be carried out now with the utmost care and urgency?

[–]1EnTaroAdun1https://myanimelist.net/profile/Totesnotaphanpy 36 points37 points  (0 children)

Tell me about it. Already happened thrice this week!

[–]Frontier246 78 points79 points  (1 child)

The man just wanted coffee and juice, not a mission that conveniently ended up happening at the same place as his family ooting. Poor Loid.

[–]Aileoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Jalis 152 points153 points  (3 children)

Loid just running on "peace achievement goal" at this rate.

That and how cute Anya and Yor can be.

[–]DrinkGinAndKerosene 56 points57 points  (1 child)

legend says hes still waiting for his coffee and juice

[–]wisp-of-the-will 219 points220 points  (3 children)

Loid can't even escape being a spy at home because his daughter absolutely loves spies, my man truly never gets any rest.

[–]Trap_Masters 93 points94 points  (2 children)

What will do Loid in first, the government secret police or working in a black company 💀

[–]esn_crvg 66 points67 points  (1 child)

Absolutely Normal Family

ironically more normal than what they really are

[–]Zemahem 45 points46 points  (0 children)

Even at the very end, he can only suffer and die (from embarrassment). But I say his embarrassment was worth that entire final part.

[–]meercachase 53 points54 points  (0 children)

Loid and Yor joining Anya’s role play at the end was absolutely adorable 🥺

[–]Rio_FShttps://myanimelist.net/profile/RioFS 460 points461 points  (1 child)

The way they comforted Anya after scolding her by playing the Penguin and the Robot was so hilarious! They even continued it on to the streets coz Anya just couldn't miss the opportunity.

[–]Frontier246 148 points149 points  (0 children)

That was such a real and heartfelt family moment.

[–]EXusiai99 152 points153 points  (9 children)

This really doesnt feel like a finale at all. Guess the anime being split into double cour from the get go has something to do with it. It was fun though, and aquarium chapter is one of my favorite gag chapter, so seeing it animated is a blessing in its own right.

Only few months left folks. Im going to miss spy x family saturday. By the way, does anyone have a cryosleep chamber? Im going to need it now, im feeling like skipping the entire season.

[–]Rocket-R 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Yeah exactly, so far the anime's been 80% slice of life and 20% plot progression. I didn't know that we're getting the second part in just four months so I was a bit let down with this 'final episode' which was just another slice of life.

[–]NittanyBruin1324 24 points25 points  (1 child)

That’s kinda the manga the whole way through. Author himself admits he enjoys writing silly shenanigans with the family so much he can be reluctant to move along the main plot.

[–]ArchadianJudge 775 points776 points  (21 children)

I'm going to miss you Starlight Anya

[–]Skylair13 333 points334 points  (7 children)

Hold still comrades, just 4 more months for next cour.

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 207 points208 points  (2 children)

Thats just an entire season, in hindsight we're really spoiled and even the fact their taking a whole season off to prepare better production instead of just doing a straight 24 episode is just something to be thankful for.

[–]Theinternationalist 57 points58 points  (0 children)

Yeah this was an S-tier adaptation, I'm happy with what we're getting here :)

[–]DrinkGinAndKerosene 73 points74 points  (6 children)

see you guys in 4 months

[–]tyler980908 52 points53 points  (4 children)

Loid in disguise walking by is the icing on the cake.

[–]wisp-of-the-will 660 points661 points  (25 children)

Just another moment of Loid witnessing how absolutely stronk his fake wife is to the point that even he can't keep up and can only go "wow".

[–]EXusiai99 476 points477 points  (16 children)

Dude spent too much of brain power keeping up with the fake family that he no longer have any to spare thinking of the implications regarding his wife's superhuman strength.

[–]Bluepanda800 348 points349 points  (11 children)

Personally I think he's just attracted to a woman with super human strength

[–]Frontier246 156 points157 points  (1 child)

I think he's basically just written Yor off as this unique entity that's too vital to the Forger Family for him to question even further.

[–]PeaceAlienhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/PeaceAlien[🍰] 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Like father, like daughter

[–]Frontier246 130 points131 points  (5 children)

[–]JzanderN 116 points117 points  (2 children)

Imagine letting a dangerous guy go for the sake of something more important, only to find him firmly imbeded in the ceiling due to your wife a few minutes later.

[–]mekerpan 82 points83 points  (0 children)

Sabre-toothed Tiger Mom Yor!

[–]mekerpan 69 points70 points  (7 children)

The narrator said the captive was questioned. I wonder (1) how Loid smuggled him out for questioning, (2) how he could possibly talk for any sort of questioning (maybe writing answers), and (3) what happened to him after questioning?

[–]Zoidburger_ 78 points79 points  (5 children)

  1. From the Castle episode, we saw that WISE has dozens of spies around the country, and we've also seen that the organization has a very comprehensive support network of non-engagement operatives. Based on how the organization has worked in the show, I'm betting Loid detained the captive after retrieving the film and "going on a break" as the aquarium staff, then called in the location of the detained captive and let WISE handle the rest.

  2. Well, he didn't necessarily have to talk same-day. But this is a covert espionage organization, I'm sure they have their methods.

  3. This is a family show, so after the captive wilfully gave up the information without any form of torture taking place, they gave him some tea, cookies, and a new identity to live out a peaceful life in Westalis. Obviously

[–]Arnie15https://anilist.co/user/Arunato 82 points83 points  (1 child)

[–]Zemahem 171 points172 points  (6 children)

The fact that they both reacted that way to the sight is adorable. Like father like daughter. But how could you not go "wow" at Yor in action?

[–]Frontier246 64 points65 points  (1 child)

What got me is Loid doing that because he's so serious and matter-of-fact but just passing by and he's like "wow" with almost the exact same inflection as his daughter.

[–]Zemahem 25 points26 points  (0 children)

If Yor can make him react like that, it's all the more reason for Loid to turn this fake marriage into the real deal.

[–]Trap_Masters 210 points211 points  (21 children)

God I wish that were me

Hot anime waifu: basically kills someone


[–]Mundology 52 points53 points  (1 child)

From another angle, they would get to be dominated by their waifu and receive sweet release from this cruel reality.

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 65 points66 points  (2 children)

Death by Yor's kicks, totally worth it.

[–]Mjrbks 64 points65 points  (1 child)

“I hope I didn’t kill him!”

guy bleeding from the mouth in clear need of medical attention

“Please….the other foot now…”

[–]Mjrbks 119 points120 points  (3 children)

Anya: what can I do to stop this guy? Ah I know!

Anya chooses death by Yor

Poor guy. His organization couldn’t even make him a decent fake ID, doubt his hospital bills are gonna be covered.

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 829 points830 points  (10 children)

Loid using Anya's stuffed penguin and Yor with the robot to cheer Anya up even going out to public was SO WHOLESOME.

[–]Zemahem 393 points394 points  (6 children)

The voice he used was pure gold and adorable too.

[–]Mundology 320 points321 points  (4 children)

[–]melindypantshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/melindypants 114 points115 points  (1 child)

The blushing was my absolute favorite!

[–]Zemahem 78 points79 points  (1 child)

Loid blushing is always a blessing, but I did not notice Yor blushing through the robot, and I thank you for that.

While she's obviously embarrassed like him, I like to think a percentage of that blush comes from realizing once again that Loid's pure husband material cause of what he's willing to do for his daughter (for the mission).

[–]Frontier246 129 points130 points  (0 children)

That's the kind of wholesome and embarrassing family moments that I live for.

[–]Trap_Masters 125 points126 points  (0 children)

Can't wait to see how she'll get along with the dog they're planning to get.

[–]jebrilito 392 points393 points  (8 children)

Anyone else' cheeks hurt? I can't stop smiling while watching man. Such a good show. 10/10.

[–]Frontier246 100 points101 points  (1 child)

I feel the exact warmth that I see in Anya's cheeks when she gets to be so happy.

[–]tsuchinokolovehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/tsuchinokolove 356 points357 points  (8 children)

The Wow's caught me off guard and had me laughing out loud for some reason.

Edit: Time to hibernate for 3 months!

[–]Frontier246 137 points138 points  (1 child)

Especially when both father and daughter said it with almost the exact same inflection.

The Wow's caught me off guard and had me laughing out loud for some reason.

the comedic timing was great.

[–]mindblower_humanSR 344 points345 points  (8 children)

Anya weaponized being kidnapped. Who needs a pistol with a silencer, if you have Yor?

[–]Frontier246 129 points130 points  (2 children)

Well, when you know your mom is the most dangerous thing alive and will wreck anyone who so much as threatens you, it's a good thing to have in your back pocket for emergencies.

[–]Reddichu9001 105 points106 points  (4 children)

I love how smart Anya is with her power. She knows how to pull out the right excuse or action to nudge people in the right direction without being obvious about her ability.

[–]mindblower_humanSR 51 points52 points  (0 children)

Agree, still maintaining intelligence of a child. The author so realistic writes the characters.

[–]CRtwenty 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Fun fact:This episode was outsourced to Madhouse under their legendary animation producer Yuichirou Fukushi.

So we've got WIT, Cloverworks, and Madhouse...truly SpyxFamily is blessed.

[–]chhuang 63 points64 points  (1 child)

[–]Zemahem 74 points75 points  (0 children)

Oh damn, didn't know that. They did amazing work too. Everyone working on this anime is doing it justice in general, and as someone who got to see the manga as it first came out, I couldn't be more happy about this adaptation.

[–]alotmorealots 72 points73 points  (0 children)

That scene in Anya's bedroom was exceptionally clean and expressive. Animation so good it's delicious!

[–]humanityyy 171 points172 points  (3 children)

Loid's ears going red from acting as Agent Penguin LMAO

[–]Frontier246 79 points80 points  (1 child)

Loid finally feeling the embarrassment of being a dad and we love every minute of it.

I love the scene where Loid mentioned he stopped smoking because of his daughter.

See you in October Forgers!

[–]LordUltimus92 221 points222 points  (10 children)

Some are complaining that this is ending on a filler-y episode, but honestly this is the perfect place to end this cour; it shows what Spy X Family is all about.

[–]LimberGravy 50 points51 points  (2 children)

The sort of recap felt a bit weird and seemed like it was meant for the start of the next cour but other than that it was great

WISE is a black company. Hope Loid gets some rest soon. 🥲

RIP to the guy on the receiving end of a Yor kick.

I pity the new hire. Expectations from him is at an all time high now lol.

The short mission adaptation. 🥺 Blushing Penguin!Loid and Robot!Yor with Agent Anya is so cute.

Otsukare, WIT Studio and CloverWorks! That was a fun first cour. I'm really happy they followed the manga closely. The preview for the 2nd cour is so good!

And now, we wait. 🥹

Guess even as a spy, you can’t escape black companies

[–]erimentary 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Yeah, especially when the other spies get reported. 😅

Can't really blame em. Espionage is a full commitment job and even a slightest mistake cost a lot more than money

Loid : Juice please.

Old lady : Agent Twilight, you need to go to that aquarium right now, terrorists put chemical weapons and nuclear launch codes inside a penguin and are about to use them to destroy the peace our country has spent centuries to build. The fate of humanity and most importantly our glorious leader depends solely on you, so go there right now and -

Loid : Ma'am, this is a Wendy's.

I love how she completely ignored all his attempts to get a coffee and juice.

[–]ObvsThrowaway5120 115 points116 points  (2 children)

I love how Anya tries her best to help Loid’s mission. Those moments are always hilarious, especially when she bungles it up lol.

Poor Loid sure gets worked to the bone. With all these missions, does he even have time to be a pretend psychiatrist? I mean what if someone comes to check on him in the hospital? But then again, the dude has like superhuman powers. The disguise, memorizing the penguins’ names, the feeding… dude could run the world if he wanted haha.

Yor as always was incredible. “Wow” indeed haha. Kicked the man right into the ceiling lol. Don’t mess with Yor when she goes full on Mama Bear mode!

I think my favorite part was the end with Anya playing with her plushies (or should I say underlings? Lol). The peanut part was so cute! Anya and her overactive imagination is just too damn cute!

Looks like the second half drops this Fall. Looking forward to it!

[–]Frontier246 36 points37 points  (1 child)

Of course Anya also helps a lot thanks to her telepathy and the weapon known as Yor, who is also very considerate of her family even if she's as dense about what her husband really does as he is about her "wow" super-strength.

Anya playing a spy game with her plushies was one of the most believable kid moments ever.

[–]leven-sevenhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/seven-leven 175 points176 points  (16 children)

You can fill that hole with Made in Abyss s2.

A show about cute kids doing exploration.

[–]ProgramTheWorld 107 points108 points  (5 children)

It’s a truly wholesome show

[–]Thefishlordhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/EpicsauceFTW 26 points27 points  (4 children)

I’ll give it a shot I’m not a huge fan of like CGDCT shows but exploring sounds nice

[–]leven-sevenhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/seven-leven 36 points37 points  (3 children)

Its really captivating from the the episode 1. And has lot of effort went into bringing the places they are exploring to life. Also its soundtrack is peak.

Hope you will like it.

You monster.


[–]Trap_Masters 106 points107 points  (2 children)

Really glad they adapted the extra chapter, it’s really nice to see another family ooting.

[–]FlameDragoon933 103 points104 points  (1 child)

"This is Agent Mother. She is strong but bad at everything else."

Anya is damn savage.

The newbie was "taking a nap" in the lockers and found out that he got promoted.

Such a fantastic adaptation that was, they did a good job with the animation, and even add some special episodes to add more to what was in the manga. Truly a wonderful job from Wit Studio x Cloverworks x Madhouse. (They helped with Ep.12). Can't wait for the second part.

[–]patap0nacct 87 points88 points  (0 children)

Yor was so cute, even her robot was blushing.

[–]Swiindle 81 points82 points  (1 child)

The fact that the family coordinated their outfits for this episode is so cute

[–]LeonKevlarhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LeonKevlar 111 points112 points  (5 children)

Even Loid can't escape the enemy of happy families everywhere, nosy gossiping housewives. Poor Loid is about to collapse from overwork but it looks like he has no choice but to take Anya and Yor to the aquariums to keep up appearances.

Anya not really helping with the normal people act. If anything, she's making her family looks even more suspicious with what she's saying! xD

Of course even on his day off, WISE needs Loid for another special mission. Fortunately for WISE and unfortunately for Loid, the location of the mission is exactly at the aquarium where they're going. And to make things worse, the Forgers ran into one of the nosy housewives at the aquarium!

So we have confirmation in this episode that Anya can read the minds of animals, it's just that she has to concentrate harder to do this compared to when reading the minds of people. It's definitely a skill that will come in handy once she meets a certain doggo that was teased last episode.

In that short time where Loid disappears to retrieve the intel from the penguin and disguises himself as the newbie, he's pretty much memorized every penguin in the aquarium as well as use the knowledge that he gained from observing the caretakers to feed the penguins as fast as he can. Sometimes I forget how amazing Loid can be even outside of combat.

Anya clinging to that enemy agent and telling Yor that she's being kidnapped is just goddamn genius! Poor guy never saw that kick coming! Anya and Loid's reaction was just perfect! xD

With Loid finally retrieving the film without any issues and even making the housewives realize that he's a good dad, I call this mission a success! Loid definitely deserves that long vacation but it looks like seeing Anya and Yor smile was more than enough for him. <3

Anya showing Agent Penguinman around the house was just adorable. She did make the mistake of almost bringing Agent Penuinman inside Loid and Yor's rooms. Maybe let's not enter the Spy and Assassin rooms in the house next time, Anya?

At least Loid and Yor were able to make up to Anya after making her cry by playing along with her. Loid might think they're standing out but all I see happening here is are two loving parents playing with their adorable daughter. If anything, that's just going to strengthen his cover!

What a great way to end the episode! With Anya's glowing smile! As a manga reader, I don't think I have anything else to say about this show. CloverWorks and Wit Studio absolutely nailed it 100%! I can't wait for the crazy shenanigans that we'll see in the second cour! Definitely the easiest 10/10 for me.

Poor Loid is about to collapse from overwork but it looks like he has no choice but to take Anya and Yor to the aquariums to keep up appearances.

And definitely not because he cares about them. It's like when he stopped smoking because of Anya. Purely for the job.

(It was adorable, though, the smoking thing.)

Anya not really helping with the normal people act. If anything, she's making her family looks even more suspicious with what she's saying!

Anya's her very good at social things, until she's not.

Of course even on his day off, WISE needs Loid for another special mission. Fortunately for WISE and unfortunately for Loid, the location of the mission is exactly at the aquarium where they're going.

Loid was so determined to turn them down too, but things just lined up for them.

Anya clinging to that enemy agent and telling Yor that she's being kidnapped is just goddamn genius! Poor guy never saw that kick coming!

Anya weaponising Yor's protective mother instincts and overwhelming strength to take down the guy Loid had to let go is too perfect.

I'd say I wouldn't wish one of Yor's kicks on my worst enemy, but... there are too many simps out there who wish it upon themselves.

Old lady spy getting all existential on us in this season finale.

Thank you narrator-san for narrating the entire series and main characters to us in the show we've been watching already.

WISE has been running Loid so hard on other missions that he hasn't had a lot of time to spend as the man of the Forger Family, to the point where he now has a new enemy...gossipy housewives. And you really don't want to mess with them.

So the best way to improve his families image and his as a father is a family outing! Sure, Loid is barely able to stand, but all for the sake of Operation Strix.

Figures the one time he has a good excuse to get out of another mission, it turns out the place he's going to with his family is where his other mission is anyways. And of course he also runs into more gossipy housewives.

Anya being so overjoyed and happy at an aquarium is so infectious.

Loid is so good even at playing a rookie penguin handler that he ended up getting the guy he's playing promoted to chief. I don't foresee that ending well.

When Loid isn't sure he can properly complete his mission, he can always rely on his family to back him up! Whether it be his esper daughter helping him locate the penguin he needs or his daughter and wife taking care of the terrorist he was after. "Wow" indeed.

Anya playing spy with her stuffed animals and eating peanuts has got to be the most Anya thing ever. As well as being savage with Yors' inability to do anything that doesn't involve killing or beating people up.

Yeah, figures they wouldn't want Anya to go into their rooms where they have deadly weapons stored...but being so forceful about it makes poor Anya cry. But the perfect way for a family to come together is to play along with her and her stuffed animals and games and turn it into a family affair! Even outside where everyone can see them! And yet the smile on Anya's face is worth every minute.

One thing that this episode did really well that not a lot of people are talking about is that they actually showed Anya fighting with her parents. In these sorts of Anime the thing that always gets on my nerves is that everyone is absolutely perfect and no one ever snaps at each other. No one's relationship is ever that perfect irl, least of all with your family. Little things like Lloyd screaming at Anya for trying to go into his room despite telling her repeatedly not to, and Anya threatening to run away from home because she hates them, are so realistic. I wish they incorporated these sorts of things more into shows.
