We know that Bond Forger is “best boy” but what is his favorite scene?

On October 20, 2022, the staff for the anime adaptation of Tatsuya Endo’s Spy X Family action, comedy, spy manga released a video featuring a scene that was chosen by voice actor Kenichirou Matsuda, who plays the most recent addition to the Forger Family, the prophetic dog Bond. The scene was chosen from Spy X Family Episode 15 “New Family Member” and Matsuda chose the scene he felt was the most important and his favorite.

Every week a member of the Spy X Family cast or staff will choose their favorite scene for the episode and a video along with their commentary will be shared on the anime’s official Twitter account and TOHO Animation’s YouTube channel.

[The scene I chose] inspired Anya to come up with the dog’s name. And that moment is when Bond joins the family in the truest sense of the word, being given a name. That’s why I chose [that important and moving scene]!”

Kenichiro Matsuda commented at TOHO Animation

When Bond brings back her gloves Anya makes a connection to Bondmand returning the Princess’s handkerchief and decides that with his black paws and kind demeanor the dog is a lot like Bondman. Thus Anya ultimately decides to name her new pet dog Bond and even gives him his very own bow tie.

Not surprisingly Kaida chose the scene where Sylvia decides to explain what war truly is about to the young and naïve terrorists with a riveting speech that sends chills down your spine.

“Hello there, my student audience. What are you after? (War! We want to see the Western Countries gone and Ostania ruling). Have you ever killed someone? Ever been killed by someone? (Of course not, you moron!) Ever had your limbs shredded by cannon fire? Ever heard the sound of bones shattering? Ever caught the scent of rotting flesh? (What are you talking about, you old hag!) Ever watched as your parents and siblings are crushed right in front of you by a collapsing house? Have you seen chunks of your lover’s body stuck to a wall? Have you seen people so desperately starving they’d gnaw tree bark? Have you seen human meat boiling in a pot? Have you ever watched your allies deny their enemies’ humanity and kill mercilessly only to come home after the war and find themselves in agony, weeping and vomiting with shame and regret until they take their own lives? Looks like you didn’t learn about war at university, children.”

Two weeks ago, the voice actor for Anya Forger, Atsumi Tanezaki, chose his favorite scene from Episode 13 and commented on it in another video.

Tazezaki chose the scene where Anya and Bond are escaping from the terrorists and Anya is excited about the fact that she’s going to save the day as “Starlight Anya”. However, she begins to realize that Bond doesn’t actually know where they are going and they end up right where they started and in front of the terrorists to boot! Luckily, right after that Yor shows up to save the day.

What is the plot of Spy X Family?

In order to maintain peace between the rival nations of Westalis and Ostania, a Westalian agent code-named “Twilight” is tasked with spying on Donovan Desmond – the leader of Ostania’s National Unity Party. However, Desmond is known for being an eccentric recluse, who is very wary of strangers. The only way for Twilight to get close to Desmond is to enroll a child in the same private school, Eden Academy, and pose as a fellow parent.

Twilight creates the alias of “Loid Forger”, adopts a young orphan girl named Anya, and marries a woman named Yor Briar so that he can present the front of a happy family to the school. However, Loid isn’t the only one keeping secrets in the family. Anya is secretly an Esper and can read minds. Anya is aware of the fact her adoptive father is actually a spy and her adoptive mother is a professional assassin.

Neither Loid nor Yor are aware of each other’s identities. Later, the family decides to adopt a dog that was experimented on until it gained precognitive abilities. Anya decides to name the dog Bond after her favorite spy cartoon. As Loid struggles with learning how to be a good father and husband while lacking common sense due to all his years of being a spy he somehow manages to form close bonds with his new family.
