The SPY x FAMILY Episode 13 release date is officially confirmed to be in October 2022, the Fall 2022 anime season.

The SPY x FAMILY Episode 13 trailer previews what anime fans should expect in the next story arc.

SPY x FAMILY EP13 will be considered to be the first episode of SPY x FAMILY Part 2. That means SPY x FAMILY Season 1 is a split-cour anime series.

What’s a “cour,” you might ask? For those unfamiliar with the lingo, a “cour” is a three-month block of TV broadcasting based on the physical seasons usually composed of 10 to 13 episodes.

A “split-cour” is where a single anime season takes a multi-month break before resuming TV broadcasting.

Once a rarity, this type of TV broadcasting schedule has become fairly common in the anime industry, especially since the COVID pandemic disrupted several years’ worth of production scheduling. Recent examples include Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 and Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation Part 2 (the actual Mushoku Tensei Season 2 anime is confirmed to be in production).

The SPY x FAMILY Part 2 2 OP (opening) and ED (ending) theme song music hasn’t been announced yet.

SPY x FAMILY Blu-Ray/DVD Volumes 1 through 3 include Episodes 1 through 12 and will be released on July 20, 2022, September 21, 2022, and November 16, 2022. 

This article provides everything that is known about SPY x FAMILY Episode 13 ( SPY x FAMILY Part 2) and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.

Who is Bond Forger in the SPY x FAMILY dog story arc?

SPY x FAMILY Episode 13 will pick up with the Bond forger story arc in manga Chapters 18 through 23, which is also known as the Doggy Crisis Arc.

Although the new SPY x FAMILY dog character Bond Forger was briefly debuted in SPY x FAMILY Episode 11, the next story arc will explain who this crafty canine is and what his special powers are in relation to Anya Forger.

SPY x FAMILY Episode 12 story was actually based on Side Mission bonus chapters

The mid-season finale, SPY x FAMILY Episode 12, was released on June 25, 2022.

What anime-only fans might find surprising is that the aquarium story for the mid-season was actually based on bonus (omake) chapters that are not part of the main plot. In this case, the anime adapted Extra Mission 1 and Short Mission 1.

SPY x FAMILY Episode 13 should return to adapting the normally numbered manga chapters.

Who is making SPY x FAMILY Season 1?

The SPY x FAMILY Season 1 anime TV series was produced in a collaboration between Japanese animation companies WIT Studio and CloverWorks. WIT Studio established its reputation with the first three seasons of the Attack On Titan anime, but that TV series will conclude with Studio MAPPA producing Attack On Titan Season 4 Part 3 in 2023.

In recent years, WIT Studio has produced anime originals like The Great Pretender and the adaptation of the Ranking of Kings manga (Ranking of Kings Season 2 will likely be produced in several years once manga Part 2 has enough chapters, although WIT Studio has plans for a Ranking of Kings spin-off that tells a side story).

Studio Cloverworks is known for producing the popular My Dress-Up DarlingRascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai anime, co-producing Darling in the FranXX, and the Fate/Grand Order anime series. In 2022, they also released the Akebi’s Sailor Uniform animeTokyo 24th Ward, In The Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki, and the Shadows House Season 2 anime.
