Father’s Day is June 20, and Shonen Jump has a page set up on its site where you can help Anya from Spy X Family come up with a surprise gift for her adopted dad. The campaign coincides with the release of the seventh volume of the manga. You have to submit your idea in Japanese, but if you follow the directions and submit something, you get a downloadable wallpaper.
The report did not say if Shonen Jump will use the suggestions down the line for something with Spy X Family. But as another way to bring attention to the campaign, Shonen Jump put up a video of Anya studying to make her parents happy. The music is meant to be helpful when people are studying in real life, so they can put it on in the background and have Anya for company while they hit the schoolbooks.
Do you have any suggestions for Anya about Father’s Day?
