SuperGroupies is collaborating with Tatsuya Endo’s popular manga and anime adaptation Spy X Family to release a collection of unique, exclusive accessories including watches, bags, and wallets that will be sold on a made-to-order basis.
The lineup includes items inspired by the Forger family and Eden Academy. One of the best items is the wristwatch that has a classic design with the hour and minute hands modeled after Yor’s sharp weapons.
On the face of the watch, you can make out the design of a fedora, penguin, Anya’s hair accessories, and a peanut. The strap is made out of brown leather and the lining is a signature Spy X Family green color. On the back of the watch face, the title of the anime SPY X FAMILY appears in white text.
The next accessory is a leather bag that was inspired by Anya’s school bag but is versatile enough to be a woman’s handbag or a man’s briefcase depending on how it is used. The bag is made out of leather, and can be worn with shoulder straps like a backpack, over the chest with a strap like a purse, or carried like a briefcase.
The interior lining of the bag is the signature Spy X Family green color and has a pocket with three different colors, which represent Loid’s yellow hair, Yor’s black hair, and Anya’s pink hair. A metal coat of arms inspired by Spy X Family and Eden Academy adorns the front flap of the bag. The molded image of a penguin, Anya’s hair accessories, Loid’s fedora and gun, as well as Yor’s weapons are embossed on its surface.
There are also two different wallet designs to choose from. Both wallets are made out of brown leather and feature the specially designed Spy X Family coat of arms/Emblem. The first wallet simply opens up like a coin purse. The second has card holders featuring three different colors: yellow, black, and pink.
The watches and bag have the same price of 16, 500 yen. The wallets are priced at 14,300 yen. SuperGroupies is accepting pre-orders from July 27 to August 15, 2022. The watches will be delivered in January 2023 and the bags and wallets will be delivered in early December.

What is the plot of the anime 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.
