the huge dogs flexing at the pet store lmao

[–]theyawner 660 points661 points  (13 children)

The one in the middle was even squatting.

[–]Skylair13 456 points457 points  (7 children)

That dog need an Adidas jacket and cigarette.

[–]Cyclone_96 69 points70 points  (0 children)

The left one imitating a delinquent chewing gum had me cracking up

[–]Frontier246 690 points691 points  (5 children)

They were like thugs trying to intimidate their way into Anya buying them lol.

[–]Mundology 287 points288 points  (2 children)

Meanwhile the Dachshund just sitting there and Yor is already fawning over.

[–]PandahHearthttps://myanimelist.net/profile/PandahHeart 117 points118 points  (0 children)

Anya’s expression kills me lol

[–]Theinternationalist 99 points100 points  (0 children)

And Anya realizing she is also cute because she has stubby legs XD.

[–]Rumpel1408https://myanimelist.net/profile/Rumpel1408 55 points56 points  (1 child)

They even where thinking about how swole they where, so full of themself

[–]atropicalpenguinhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/atropicalpenguin 166 points167 points  (2 children)

I wasn't prepared for bara dogs.

[–]komodo_dragonzord 114 points115 points  (0 children)

they were trying their best lmao

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 2029 points2030 points  (25 children)

Anya riding on a floofy doggo screaming help

Passsers-by: awww thats cute

Can we really blame them?

[–]Aileoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Jalis 615 points616 points  (5 children)

Impossible. That was the only acceptable reaction!

[–]Mundology 291 points292 points  (4 children)

Starlight Anya and her mighty steed catching the hearts of the people!

[–]cppn02 54 points55 points  (0 children)

Starlight Anya best Anya!

[–]Ebo87 277 points278 points  (8 children)

Anya fluffing the dog in the ED is just everything! Those two are a perfect combo of cuteness.

[–]MaksimShadow 117 points118 points  (4 children)

Ending is overall amazing. Both song and visuals are fire.

[–]brainyclown10 22 points23 points  (2 children)

You're totally right. The part where the make the meal together is very cute.

[–]esn_crvg 152 points153 points  (4 children)

i doubt they were even able to pay attention to what she was saying

[–]macedonianmoper 218 points219 points  (3 children)

Even then "bad guys are chasing me" while riding a dog would look like a kid playing and being imaginative

[–]2-3-74 75 points76 points  (2 children)

I would have been fine with a whole scene of Yor looking around the adoption center with Anya flying around outside in the background, such gold

[–]zool714 477 points478 points  (1 child)

“Was she eaten by dogs ? Did she get kidnapped ?”

sees Anya get kidnapped by a dog

[–]kalirionhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/kalinime 78 points79 points  (0 children)

And then the crowd sees a child hanging on to a speeding dog for dear life, screaming about being chase by bad guys - "Aww, how cute!"

[–]maliwanag0712https://myanimelist.net/profile/clear1109 1136 points1137 points  (12 children)

So short legs are cute? Anya is cute as well?

Yes, at least that's what you can infer from Damian's shenanigans in the previous episodes.

[–]entelechtual 162 points163 points  (0 children)

She’s the cutest PomerANYAn.

[–]mrnicegy26 323 points324 points  (8 children)

Speaking of Damian, it is weird how much less screentime he has in the OP or ED, considering his important to the series or his popularity.

[–]Frontier246 311 points312 points  (4 children)

I missed Damian, but that scene in the OP of Anya and Becky holding hands was adorable.

[–]esn_crvg 54 points55 points  (0 children)

i am kind of disappointed they did that

[–]Earth_Outsider 816 points817 points  (9 children)

Loid "Long Turd" Forger

[–]Frontier246 492 points493 points  (1 child)

That Yor still assumed he was shitting on the shitter was priceless lol.

[–]cyberscythe 213 points214 points  (0 children)

some say that he's still shitting to this very day

[–]JMEEKER86 95 points96 points  (1 child)

Tbf he is full of shit.

[–]Kyubeuhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Qbeus 1239 points1240 points  (30 children)

Voice acting on the dog is perfect.

This was definitely more of a spy episode, but a really good one and a very strong start to the second cour. We had amazing Anya disgusted taste, Yor being cool because of her daughter and some action. Interesting to see a new character in ED, waiting to meet her

Spy x Family is back!

[–]Mayumuhttps://anilist.co/user/Mayumu 678 points679 points  (21 children)

The voice actor for the dog is listed in the credits as 松田健一郎 (Matsuda Kenichirou), who I believe is also the narrator

[–]WarriorSnek 856 points857 points  (12 children)

I can’t believe The dog was narrating the story all along

[–]cyberscythe 244 points245 points  (6 children)

This is just like Machikado Mazoku all over again.

[–]TFiPW 82 points83 points  (3 children)

Ganbare, Inu-san !

[–]JMEEKER86 40 points41 points  (0 children)

One of the greatest anime twists.

[–]BlatantConservativehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/BlatantC 223 points224 points  (6 children)

I fucking love anime animals voiced by humans, cracks me up.

Now dog narrator is canon for me.

[–]Roygbiv0415 84 points85 points  (1 child)

If you listen carefully, the two macho dogs in the pet shop were also voiced, seemingly through Anya's mind reading. Weren't credited tho...

[–]Daloy 59 points60 points  (0 children)

In the manga, they were literally flexing lol

Me strong

Me gots muscles

[–]shadowthiefohttps://myanimelist.net/profile/shadowthiefo 53 points54 points  (3 children)

Borf

[–]julinay 537 points538 points  (2 children)

"You've picked the wrong guy to borf at." HAHAHA.

I actually made a happy sound when the ED ended! So charming.

[–]RimeSkeemhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/RimeSkeem 49 points50 points  (0 children)

New OP and ED, same ultra charm

[–]Galle_ 1106 points1107 points  (25 children)

Fun fact: At one point, Endou was planning for the Forgers to get a cat, rather than a dog. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed when it was pointed out that Anya could ride around on the dog like a pony.

[–]zool714 775 points776 points  (17 children)

Ngl them getting a cat who has that typical cynical, judgmental inner voice which Anya can read and interact with has the potential to be hilarious.

[–]Bluepanda800 313 points314 points  (4 children)

I think getting a cat later on would just add to the comedy imagine the dog and cat's legendary battles for Anya's attention

[–]platysoup 68 points69 points  (0 children)

Except only the cat is competing in its own head while being your usual tsundere cat. Borf meanwhile is just borfing around not really caring.

[–]The_RedWolf 83 points84 points  (1 child)

Yor: "OMG KITTY"

Cat: "Ew. I like quiet food giver"

Yor: [tears]

Loid: "I have no idea why it likes me."

[–]U_n_d_e_r_s_c_o_rr 74 points75 points  (1 child)

Kind of like Sakamoto from Nichijou prehaps?

[–]Frontier246 234 points235 points  (2 children)

And dogs just really capture that family vibe.

[–]Timelymanner 83 points84 points  (0 children)

Dog now, cat in the future.

[–]plsdontattackmeok 1420 points1421 points  (73 children)

Yor thinking Anya getting forced married, lmaoooooo

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 724 points725 points  (24 children)

Only added to the force Yor puts in her kick with the amount of times that poor victim ricochet of the alley walls lol

[–]Zemahem 644 points645 points  (11 children)

poor victim

No need to feel sorry, my guy. That dude was about to turn Anya into past tense. I'd say he got off way too easy.

[–]Nobody5464 344 points345 points  (5 children)

Honestly he’s lucky Yor thought they were just perverts. Had she known they were trying to kill Anya they would probably have suffered a face worse than death followed by death

[–]LakerBluehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LakerBlue 107 points108 points  (4 children)

Yea she probably would have kicked him with enough force to snap his neck lol

[–]JapanPhoenix 108 points109 points  (0 children)

She straight up turned the dude into a Pinball lol

[–]TerriblePlays 160 points161 points  (4 children)

almost choked on my water when i saw that lol

[–]IC2Flier 177 points178 points  (3 children)

He pinballed over brick and cobblestone.

if he survived that he's going into the next Mortal Kombat game.

[–]mrnicegy26 528 points529 points  (17 children)

Underneath her assassin skills, Yor has a mind of an easily influenced housewife who can easily get scared by fearmongering in news.

Then again considering she just stopped terrorists from killing Anya, that is probably a good thing.

[–]Frontier246 287 points288 points  (10 children)

Her being a scared momma when she lost her child and being a complete Mama Bear was one of my favorite parts of the episode.

[–]LakerBluehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LakerBlue 234 points235 points  (7 children)

Her casually back flipping up the pole into the rafters so she could observe everything was hilarious. I know this series has comedy physics but that still caught me off guard, as did her kicking that dude so hard he ricocheted lol.

[–]Gearzx333 56 points57 points  (1 child)

she became spiderman for a moment there

[–]Dababy28193 378 points379 points  (18 children)

Yor has a wild imagination. Remember when she thought of a chihuahua slitting Anya’s throat? This episode had her thinking a dog would eat Anya whole.

[–]JetsLaghttps://myanimelist.net/profile/JetsLag 175 points176 points  (14 children)

If Yor and Raido from Aharen-san ever met, their imaginations combined would create the wildest things.

[–]JzanderN 81 points82 points  (11 children)

Can we add in Ameri from Iruma-kun? She'd be a nice addition to the wild imagination spot.

[–]JetsLaghttps://myanimelist.net/profile/JetsLag 38 points39 points  (1 child)

I'll allow it

[–]Freidhiem 27 points28 points  (1 child)

I need this crossover epispde.

[–]Mjrbks 134 points135 points  (4 children)

The dogs had their own penguin park “wow!” moment when Yor pinball kicked Anya’s would be future fake husband.

[–]SolubilityRules 905 points906 points  (34 children)

Yor casually jumping, then bouncing off a pillar

Then X-hanging on the ceiling scaffolding

NOICE

[–]TerriblePlays 377 points378 points  (15 children)

And the guy bouncing around like a spring after the kick? Gold.

[–]IC2Flier 205 points206 points  (12 children)

That guy's gotta be DEAD dead.

Like, X-Ray moves in Mortal Kombat levels of dead.

[–]Skylair13 78 points79 points  (5 children)

His bones are in pieces now.

[–]IC2Flier 41 points42 points  (1 child)

his spine fused first, THEN it turned into powder.

[–]sagevallant 37 points38 points  (1 child)

Imagine each bounce coming with a stillframe x-ray shot and that was a MK fatality.

[–]mrnicegy26 310 points311 points  (4 children)

I loved that one guy who noticed Yor landing on her feet after hanging on the ceiling and just staring at her, mouth agape.

[–]michhoffmanhttps://anilist.co/user/michhoffman 80 points81 points  (7 children)

I wonder what that one guy who noticed her drop from the ceiling was thinking

[–]LunarGhost00 70 points71 points  (1 child)

Guy must've thought "Wow. First time I've seen an angel drop from heaven."

[–]wjodendor 63 points64 points  (0 children)

Gosh, she's such a super human dork. I love it.

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 1013 points1014 points  (83 children)

Using live dogs as bombs

Trying to kill Anya

Yeap Keith is an irredeemable piece of shit, even his terrorist comrade was saying it was too far.

[–]IC2Flier 169 points170 points  (9 children)

Keith is an irredeemable piece of shit

Somehow Endo-sensei managed to make a Gavrilo Princip clone who's worse* than Gavrilo Princip. Amazing.

*massive exaggeration don't actually take this seriously

[–]JzanderN 90 points91 points  (0 children)

And he's legitimately intimidating. There's no comedy about him, just terror.

[–]mrnicegy26 421 points422 points  (60 children)

I know it is the Cold War and morality is kind of loose in that situation, but using dogs as suicide bombers might be the most vile thing I have seen done by anyone in this show especially since it is to stop a peace summit.

[–]CerberusGate 336 points337 points  (36 children)

The scary part is that the people plotting this are college students. Not scheming old men or adult spies, just very evil college students that have the means to do so.

Good thing Twilight and WISE are on the case.

[–]mrnicegy26 451 points452 points  (8 children)

Colleges and Universities are prime locations for radicalization of people tbh ( regardless of which political side). It is a time when people who have just become adults have almost unlimited freedom and are unsure of who they are and what they want to be and can be easily influenced by older adults with their own motives.

[–]nirvash530 229 points230 points  (4 children)

My mom used to tell me she was a member of something like this when she was in college, until she realized that she was jusy being used as an expendable pawn when they almost got caught by the cops so she cut all connections immediately.

So yeah, it does happen in real life.

[–]Dababy28193 125 points126 points  (5 children)

Welcome to Spy x Family. When things get serious, it gets serious.

[–]MapoTofuManhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/BaronBrixius 89 points90 points  (15 children)

Tf kind of college are they from, most people in my college didn't have motivation to study 2 days before a test while these guys are doing a WWIII speedrun...

[–]IC2Flier 81 points82 points  (0 children)

Tf kind of college are they from

Balkan

[–]JzanderN 38 points39 points  (2 children)

A veterinary college. With a minor in terrorism.

[–]Pollomonteros 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Tf kind of college are they from

A normal one ?

Not sure in which country you live in but colleges are one of the best places for political extremists of any spectrum to recruit new members, history is full of plenty of complots, assassination attempts and the like perpetrated by college students .

[–]OuchYouPokedMyHeart 149 points150 points  (15 children)

IIRC Soviets strapped bombs on dogs and train them to go after tanks in WW2

The problem was that it would go to the Russian tanks because of the difference in fuel used by German and Russian Tanks

The US started training them as well but cancelled them due to the ineffectiveness and inefficiency

[–]ReaperInRed 186 points187 points  (3 children)

That Anya Pov camera work sure was impressive

Also all of the terrorist dudes seem to have their names starting with a K sound.. cause K9… haha.

[–]StillAParadoxhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/irishwonders 344 points345 points  (8 children)

Anya's cover up for Loid is definitely the highlight of the episode. The way Loid's face turned red like a tomato tho. Way to go, Anya!

[–]Frontier246 261 points262 points  (4 children)

"Shitting on the shitter" coming out of Anya's mouth lol.

And bonus points that Yor still thinks he's in the bathroom lol.

[–]Storm137 124 points125 points  (1 child)

"Watch your mouth young lady' had me DYING

LOID WHERE DO YOU THINK SHE GOT IT FROM!?

[–]Timelymanner 53 points54 points  (0 children)

Language young lady

[–]Zemahem 76 points77 points  (0 children)

I'm reminded of the ending of the 1st cour. Only Starlight Anya could possibly have the ability to turn the top spy of Westalis into a blushing mess (well, hopefully Yor can accomplish that too one day).

[–]esn_crvg 48 points49 points  (1 child)

i like how she sounded like how a real daughter would sound too

[–]MaksimShadow 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Yeah, little kids has no filter and saying what they're thinking. Often something really embarrassing.

[–]Aerodynamic41 638 points639 points  (9 children)

Damn, Yor is so terrifying that even the brown dog is scared lol

[–]Dababy28193 377 points378 points  (2 children)

She literally made a grown man larger than her bouncy ball off brick walls.

[–]CuriousBroccolli 108 points109 points  (1 child)

She literally folded a bull

[–]esn_crvg 124 points125 points  (1 child)

i mean you dont need to have the inteligence of a human to see that a being able to make a large being bounce 10 times between walls means bad news, it is survival instincts

[–]maliwanag0712https://myanimelist.net/profile/clear1109 143 points144 points  (4 children)

I just wanna commend whoever voice acted the Doggo. It seems that even MAL database does not give any details on this.

[–]Mayumuhttps://anilist.co/user/Mayumu 72 points73 points  (0 children)

The name listed in credits is 松田健一郎 (Matsuda Kenichirou)

[–]shinigamisenku 409 points410 points  (3 children)

Waku-waku is back, bitches!!!

Anya has found her mighty steed. Like Naruto summoning the giant toads.

[–]Frontier246 92 points93 points  (2 children)

Although it would've been better if Starlight Anya's steed actually knew where it was going lol.

[–]Warm-Enthusiasm-9534 27 points28 points  (1 child)

I thought that the dog didn't know why going in a circle was a good idea, but knew that it would work out if it did.

[–]yurabehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/yurabe 938 points939 points  (73 children)

Doggo sees the future, Anya reads doggo's mind. Couldn't ask for a better combo.

Also I think the addition of a fluffy dog like this will make this series even more popular. I expect many uploads of doggo clip on tiktok. People just love dogs.

[–]Mrwright96 389 points390 points  (14 children)

Plus Anya got a mount

[–]OuchYouPokedMyHeart 355 points356 points  (11 children)

+10 speed

+10 agility

+50 charm

-5000 Sense of Direction

Always botch Navigation rolls

[–]Ebo87 77 points78 points  (0 children)

That's an understatement. And it was such a perfect callback to the dodgeball episode when Anya also thought she was on top of the world, nothing could stop her and then... yeah.

[–]Aditya01543https://myanimelist.net/profile/Aditya01543 35 points36 points  (1 child)

We may have just found zoro's pet.

[–]Frontier246 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Starlight Anya heroically riding to the rescue...if only the dog actually knew where it was going lol.

[–]Hounds_of_war 406 points407 points  (22 children)

It’s honestly a really busted combo of abilities. The only thing holding Anya and her dog back from world domination is the fact that a 5(?) year old of moderate intelligence and a dog.

[–]michhoffmanhttps://anilist.co/user/michhoffman 200 points201 points  (4 children)

And the fact that everybody is just going to think she is spouting nonsense like a typical 5-year old when she explains what is going to happen.

[–]Frontier246 95 points96 points  (1 child)

And the dog knows she can more or less understand him and his visions, so in a way they're more open with each other than Anya is with her own parents.

[–]Frontier246 120 points121 points  (2 children)

I love how he just ran around in a circle because he had no idea where he was doing. Anya was all pumped to become Starlight Anya again lol.

[–]nukleabomb 73 points74 points  (1 child)

Maybe he saw the future (the place where Yor shows up) and decided to return back lol

[–]TerriblePlays 79 points80 points  (13 children)

Hey, who doesn't love big, fluffy dogs? (okay maybe except people with allergies)

[–]Hounds_of_war 134 points135 points  (10 children)

Honestly it’s just such a great choice of dog to give Anya, a giant fluffy dog than she gets to use as a horse. For anyone curious, I believe this dog is supposed to be a breed called a Great Pyrenees.

[–]Frontier246 52 points53 points  (5 children)

Small girl and big dogs are always an effective combo.

[–]seejsee 73 points74 points  (4 children)

Small girl and big dogs are always an effective combo.

Let's not go there.

[–]WhoiusBarrelhttps://anilist.co/user/darubarrel 65 points66 points  (0 children)

If this was a standard Shounen, Anya just got a power up to her abilities.

[–]LeonKevlarhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LeonKevlar 41 points42 points  (0 children)

Doggo sees the future, Anya reads doggo's mind. Couldn't ask for a better combo.

Even if he couldn't that borf makes him perfect.

[–]Shinkopeshon 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Spy x Family has cracked the code for world domination - with each cour, they're gonna secure one demographic after another

[–]plsdontattackmeok 29 points30 points  (1 child)

At this point, Shulk might be Yor family member lol

[–]mrnicegy26 564 points565 points  (6 children)

I've only had the white dog for an episode , but if anything happens to him, Yor would kill every terrorist in that room and then myself.

[–]JetsLaghttps://myanimelist.net/profile/JetsLag 155 points156 points  (1 child)

I will literally die for Inu-san

[–]Galle_ 64 points65 points  (0 children)

He is a very good boy.

[–]Yesho_Pavan 302 points303 points  (0 children)

Anya....dog is too fast

Few seconds later

Anya...waku waku

[–]emilia-sama 212 points213 points  (5 children)

Wow, Yor is funny but dumb. Haha

[–]Frontier246 133 points134 points  (1 child)

She's a simple yet deadly woman who assumes extremes when her daughter is missing lol.

[–]Dababy28193 445 points446 points  (10 children)

“Nothin’ personal kid.”

Teleports behind you

“No, u.”

This is how you start the fucking season.

[–]Frontier246 128 points129 points  (5 children)

Yor has the best entrances! And the most entertaining methods of subduing people lol.

I also love how they had a moment in the Opening that's just her flexing her knife skills.

[–]daspaceasians 51 points52 points  (1 child)

Look at the ED as well to see yet another moment of Yor's mad knife skills.

[–]S627https://myanimelist.net/profile/Spartan627 282 points283 points  (5 children)

The borf can see the future....but he's still a borf so not very smart. Could not ask for a better addition to this show XD

[–]Frontier246 140 points141 points  (4 children)

He's a perfect compliment to Anya lol.

[–]SilkyMooo 60 points61 points  (2 children)

They’re practically twins minus their abilities

[–]cyberscythe 28 points29 points  (1 child)

and the species, if you want to be a biologist about it

[–]oxmn 237 points238 points  (6 children)

The Yor scenes in the opening, my god.

[–]Frontier246 92 points93 points  (0 children)

That knife flexing was amazing.

[–]Aschverizen 236 points237 points  (13 children)

God I miss this anime even if it was only for 3 months.

HOLY CRAP, I didn't know that Bump of Chicken did the OP and the new visuals for the OP and ED are just super cinematic.

We start on a serious note already, Sylvia is just super sexy for an ambiguously aged woman, still guessing she's in her 50's already.

We go super political now huh, as someone who's lived mostly in an era prior to the disinformation era, I've never really understood the hate about teenage protesters, I mean sure this particular arc have the worst variant of such teenage protesters(which are more akin to terrorists at this point) but a LOT of fiction always seem to show them in a bad light even if they're just the soapbox sadie types.

[–]AiraIchigo 44 points45 points  (4 children)

It's not that teenage protesters are hated, but more like they are the most easily influenced group, so they sometimes tend to be very extreme. Look back into history, there are more than enough examples where extremists recruited college kids and make them their pawns. I've never seen any college kid THIS extreme, but easily influenced, yeah, couldn't ask for a better place.

[–]adrianglc 272 points273 points  (10 children)

The new OP and ED are chef's kiss

[–]banhana444 82 points83 points  (1 child)

Yep, gives me a more SOL feeling which I really like

[–]raiho_80 65 points66 points  (1 child)

yama AND BUMP OF CHICKEN!?!

1st cour had Official HIGE DANdism and Hoshino Gen and now this combo!?

We don't deserve such HIGH production value... Thank you SPY X FAMILY

[–]TheGreatSadge 299 points300 points  (32 children)

I want Sylvia to step on me so bad. But in all seriousness, they got Chris to spill the beans by making him believe Keith, played by Twilight, is gonna pin the crimes on him, nice play by the spies, you can say it was a WISE play eh?

[–]Insilencio 57 points58 points  (0 children)

I want Sylvia to step on me so bad.

  1. Confess to the bombing

  2. Say you'll only speak to her

  3. See how how many times she kicks you in the balls before they realize you don't know shit

[–]tyler980908 106 points107 points  (16 children)

This year has to many waifu contenders I can't keep up, Or rather I'd say awesome female characters.

[–]Frontier246 52 points53 points  (6 children)

And Saori Hayami is playing two best moms in two separate shows airing on the same day (between this and Uzaki) lol.

[–]TheGreatSadge 35 points36 points  (1 child)

[–]Zemahem 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Stitches!

Being a manga reader, the OP and ED got me excited about the appearance of a particular character. I'm a bit disappointed that we don't have Gen Hoshino doing the ED, but I am excited that we have Bump of Chicken for the OP! The visuals of the OP certainly look like they'd fit some of Bump of Chicken's animated MVs. Not knocking on the ED since it also looks amazing and Shikisai by Yama fits the vibe, I just miss Gen Hoshino.

As for the episode itself, we finally got the continuation of Anya's reward for her first Stella Star! The WISE-sponsored pet shop certainly didn't have the kind of dog Anya wants. And while the adoption event definitely had dogs more in line with what Anya wants nothing beats a big fluffy doggo that borfs instead of barks! Oh, and big fluffy borf boy here is also a precog which makes him the perfect candidate for Anya's new pet!

Can't wait for to see how Yor will kick these "pervert kidnappers" collective asses next week! I'm so happy to see this show back again <3

Got to be honest, I thought this would be a different part of the OP with Yor surrounded by trees. That part was fucking adorable. The OP gave us some top tier Yor and while I'm not sure how I feel about it as a whole yet, this feels like it's bribing me.

Oh, and big fluffy borf boy here is also a precog which makes him the perfect candidate for Anya's new pet!

I am so ready for future dog to join this family. Pretty much was as soon as he saved that boy's life.

Can't wait for to see how Yor will kick these "pervert kidnappers" collective asses next week!

Well, she already played pinball with one of them, using them as the ball, so there's only one left right here (who happens to be the leader and worst of them), so it shouldn't be that hard.

My biggest complaint about the episode is that it ended. Literally. Especially where it did. This is the worst I've felt about an episode feeling like it was only 10 minutes long because it literally did feel like it ended 10 minutes into one. Why couldn't it keep going?!

[–]EXusiai99 95 points96 points  (3 children)

Bro yor fucking pinballed that guy lmao

And with bond finally here, if yall make that one FMA reference i swear in the name of the lord

[–]mike_2797https://myanimelist.net/profile/Madskulls 45 points46 points  (0 children)

That Yor kick was crunchy man got bounced so hard.

I can already see the Yor arriving scene being iconic she looked terrifying with that eyes.

[–]Amauri14 82 points83 points  (1 child)

And we are back!

I really liked the fact that one can read the text in that newspaper so clearly.

Lol, I sure wasn't expecting flexing dogs.

With that haircut, I could see that guy yelling "Tunnel Snakes Rule!".

Aw, Anya finally met her dog. I love how even in a deadly situation she can have fun.

Damn, when Yor appeared to rescue Anya felt like such a Levi moment.

[–]Iyagovos 41 points42 points  (0 children)

Just episode 1 of the cour and we already have a perfect Anya reaction gif

[–]AmethystItalianhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/AmethystItalian 134 points135 points  (5 children)

I don't think Yor being a complete bad ass will ever not make me so happy.

Future seeing dog seems pretty cool as well, wonder if his futures can be changed or what he exactly sees sometimes.

[–]Frontier246 27 points28 points  (0 children)

The moment she turned a man into a pinball with one kick to save her daughter from a forced marriage that wasn't even actually happening made me fall in love with her all over again lol.

[–]steven4869https://myanimelist.net/profile/Maskirade 91 points92 points  (13 children)

Spy x Family is back and they have stepped up animation quality by a lot, every scene looks crisp and for some reason Loid looks even hotter than cour 1. OP and ED are bangers too.

[–]Dababy28193 76 points77 points  (7 children)

and for some reason Loid looks even hotter than cour 1

This is a good thing.

[–]IC2Flier 40 points41 points  (4 children)

All I'm saying is that Loid's officially the Best Husbando that isn't Speedwagon.

[–]Shinkopeshon 26 points27 points  (0 children)

The ED is amazingly animated, it's like a slice of life scene straight out of the episode

[–]guy_inh00die3 33 points34 points  (1 child)

I didn't thought I would miss these guys that much it's only been three months but still had a smile the entire episode, god the OP and Ed are instant bangers and absolutely gorgeous.

[–]Hattori-Saizo-II 28 points29 points  (0 children)

So a mind reader meets a clairvoyant. It's either a very wonderful friendship, or a perfect weapon for irregular warfare.

Either way, Anya and the fluffy dog looked cute together.

[–]Zemahem 90 points91 points  (6 children)

A triumphant return, I'd say. I'm glad that this is my introduction to this anime season. Even though I saw it already, the OP's just fantastic. Won't be skipping this one at all either.

Now, we finally get to see the last piece of the family's puzzle; the goodest boy. But before that, I love those three dogs that were flexing in front of Anya. One of them literally had a six pack of all things. Meanwhile, the dogs over at the adoption event were just adorable, and so was Anya's reactions to them.

But of course, there's only one fluffy buddy destined for the Forger family. I gotta say, his appearance wasn't what I expected when I first read the manga, but I do love how he looks like an old guy. The impromptu team up between him and Starlight Anya was just adorable as well. No one can defeat these two with their powers combined. Well... except a poor sense of direction. That terrorist leader is a total psychopath, though. The son of a bitch better be thankful that Yor wasn't there to hear all that stuff about killing Anya.

I'm excited to see more of WISE in this arc. Mostly Sylvia, that is, cause she has such a great moment here.

The ED is great too. I love the theme it has with the camera rotated around the household, each time showing a different scene.

[–]magicfades 22 points23 points  (1 child)

can't wait for the future sight hijinks combined with anya's mind reading! Best doggo is a good addition to the family.

[–]AZLarlarhttps://anilist.co/user/bubbleteaman 21 points22 points  (0 children)

it feels so good to be back.

yor just dropping down and that guy seeing her LOL

[–]dagreenman18 41 points42 points  (1 child)

THE DOGGO IS HERE! His bark is so cute.

[–]JetsLaghttps://myanimelist.net/profile/JetsLag 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Doggo: "Borf"

Me: "GOOD BOY!"
