Spy x Family is officially one of 2022’s largest anime blockbusters, if not the absolute biggest, with the Forger Family’s story connecting with audiences all across the world.

The series recently completed its first season, with the franchise celebrating by having its Japanese voice cast for Loid, Anya, and Yor draw the characters they represent.

At the same time, Wit and Cloverworks continue to adapt the storylines from Tatsuya Endo’s manga.

The anime voice actors who play Loid, Yor, and Anya attempted to create their characters, with Takuya Eguchi, Saori Hayami, and Atsumi Tanezaki taking advantage of the opportunity to show off their artistic abilities while waiting for the final episodes of Spy x Family’s first season:

Spy x Family Part 2 is in the works. Given that the anime series has become the most-watched in Japan, it’s a safe guess that the Forgers’ story will continue forget.

Plenty of material from the manga has yet to be converted to the small screen. The franchises of several anime series have revealed news of a series continuation.

This was following the arrival of the mid-season finale, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the Spy x Family Season 2 is confirmed later in December 2022 as the first season ends.

Spy x Family’s unpredictable new threat

The first trailer for the popular espionage comedy’s second installment introduces a new enemy to the series, Keith Kepler. Keith is a far-right terrorist who wants to spark an all-out war between Westalis and Ostania.

In essence, this poses a threat to Twilight’s mission, which has the eventual goal of maintaining the two nations’ tenuous peace.

Hiroki Takahashi, who previously appeared in the anime series HUNTER x HUNTER and Prince of Tennis, will play the violent radical in the drama.

Plenty of action is also hinted at, as Yor Forger is seen fighting in an alley while Loid draws his pistol against an unidentified adversary. The following 12 episodes of the series are set to premiere in Japan this October 2022.

The anime is based on the same-named manga published in 2019 by writer and artist Tatsuya Endo. The manga was initially released as an exclusive for Shonen Jump+, Shueisha’s hit-making Shonen Jump magazine’s digital manga spinoff.

With over 21 million copies in circulation worldwide, the series has become one of the most popular titles to emerge from the service. Endo’s manga has already been nominated for two Eisner Awards. The first was in 2021 when Junji Ito’s Remina defeated it, and the second was in 2022.

What do you think of the Forgers’ artistic interpretations by their Japanese voice actors?
