The Spy x Family Episode 18 release date is on November 5, 2022.

It’s possible that Spy X Family Episode 18 will center on Anya’s upcoming mid-term exams at Eden Academy. Stella Stars will be awarded to the highest and second-highest performing students of each grade for each of the four test subjects. However, students who fail an exam will receive a Tonitrus Bolt. If a student gets 8 Tonitrus Bolt they will be expelled from Eden Academy.

When Anya gets her latest test scores back she realizes she’s in some serious trouble. That’s when Damien brags about his good grades and Anya plans to read his mind during the upcoming test. However, Anya discovers that the day of the test coincides with the day of the “new moon”. At the lab Anya discovered that she will lose her powers on the day of the new moon, and the scientists called this phenomenon “eclipsing”.

Anya realizes that if she won’t be able to read minds and cheat during the test she’s in serious trouble. Yor decides to ask Yuri to tutor Anya and when he arrives she discovers Yuri’s overwhelming “sister complex” and uses it to manipulate him. Yuri tells Anya knowledge is power and inspires her to study harder. Anya studies hard and after she takes the test is confident in her results.

Loid Forger isn’t as confident as Anya, however, and is positive she’s failed her exams. If she has she’s probably gotten four Tonitrus Bolts. Loid decides to take matters into his own hands, and plots to infiltrate the school while disguised as a teacher in order to alter Anya’s answers before they grade her test.

The tests have been secured in the school vault along with other important documents. While Loid is about to infiltrate the school he catches sight of a suspicious-looking man sneaking around the school grounds. This man’s codename is Daybreak and he’s an Elite Spy employed by one of Anya’s classmates to change Damien and his older brother’s test scores.

Daybreak is aware that the master spy Twilight, who works for the West, has infiltrated the East. Daybreak decided on his codename expecting that the day would come when he and Twilight would inevitably match wits and it would be determined who the true master spy was. Loid is forced to help the sloppy spy out as he carries out his mission and hilarious antics ensue.

Will Loid manage to change Anya’s test answers in time? Or will the two spies get caught? Which of Anya’s classmates hired Daybreak to change Damien and his brother’s test scores and why? Will Anya fail and get four Tonitrus Bolts? You’ll have to wait until Spy X Family Episode 18 in order to find out!

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.
