spy x family

The members of the Forger family have secrets of their own, not just from the public at large but from each other, as well. Their dual lives are on display in the latest key visual for the TV anime, which is set to kick off its adaptation of Tatsuya Endo’s hit Shonen Jump manga when it premieres on April 9.

Kazuhiro Furuhashi (1999 Hunter x Hunter anime) is at the helm for this one, with Kazuaki Shimada (THE PROMISED NEVERLAND) adapting the character designs and (K)NoW_NAME producing the music for the WIT Studio and CloverWorks production.

Crunchyroll will stream the series as it airs this April. Here’s the official synopsis:

Everyone has a part of themselves they cannot show to anyone else.

At a time when all nations of the world were involved in a fierce war of information happening behind closed doors, Ostania and Westalis had been in a state of cold war against one another for decades.

The Westalis Intelligence Services’ Eastern-Focused Division (WISE) sends their most talented spy, “Twilight,” on a top-secret mission to investigate the movements of Donovan Desmond, the chairman of Ostania’s National Unity Party, who is threatening peace efforts between the two nations.

This mission is known as “Operation Strix.”

It consists of “putting together a family in one week in order to infiltrate social gatherings organized by the elite school that Desmond’s son attends.”

“Twilight” takes on the identity of psychiatrist Loid Forger and starts looking for family members. But Anya, the daughter he adopts, turns out to have the ability to read people’s minds, while his wife, Yor, is an assassin! With it being in each of their own interests to keep these facts hidden, they start living together while concealing their true identities from one another.

World peace is now in the hands of this brand-new family as they embark on an adventure full of surprises.
