Soak Up and Get SPY x FAMILY Goodies at Special Hot Springs This Summer

The SPY x FAMILY manga and anime has become one of the hottest series around. Do you know what else is hot? Onsen, or Japanese hot spring baths. And this summer, the onsen resort chain Gokurakuyu has teamed up with SPY x FAMILY for special goodies.

The collaboration is referred to as a “holiday mission,” keeping with the theme of SPY x FAMILY. The event started earlier this month, and will continue until August 14, so people have a limited amount of time to soak up in the hot springs and get their SPY x FAMILY merch. The hot springs will also have decorations related to the franchise, and people going there can get their own SPY x FAMILY bath and towel set.

But that’s not all that’s being offered in terms of goodies. For every 2,000 yen you spend, you get an original postcard.

And of course there are sets of key holders you can get. Notice how these, like some of their other goodies, contain a hot spring theme in their images.

There are two varieties of tin badges. Here are the regular ones.

By why go for regular looks when they can be small and chibi? Then here are the chibified version.

And then there’s this set of Acrylic stands.

The anime is currently streaming on Crunchyroll, and VIZ Media publishes the manga in English. VIZ gave this description of the first volume:

“Not one to depend on others, Twilight has his work cut out for him procuring both a wife and a child for his mission to infiltrate an elite private school. What he doesn’t know is that the wife he’s chosen is an assassin and the child he’s adopted is a telepath!”

What do you think of these different goodies? Is there anything here you’d like to own?
