“A spy, an assassin, and a telepath all pretend to be family members in order to get what they want. But as they go, they learn what family really means.”
This is the idea behind Spy x Family, a popular show-in-the-making that took the anime and manga fandom by storm.
The series is well-liked because it has a unique idea, fun stories, and, of course, characters that people like. Also, new viewers wouldn’t be as excited about the series if it didn’t have the Forger family.
Spy x Family is quickly becoming a beloved and head-turning series for many fans all over the world.
It has all the correct shonen elements: the plots and subplots are easy to follow, the jokes are laugh-out-loud funny, and best of all, the interactions between the misfit characters make the show very endearing to both young and old viewers.
Even though I love the series, we have to discuss the big issue: Is the Spy x Family manga done or over? Will the people who run Shnen Jump+ cut it, or will it keep going for the next three to five years?
So, without further ado, come with me as we explore the beautiful worlds of Spy x Family!
Spy x Family is a Shonen Jump+ series that comes out every two months. It is neither over nor overturned. Since it’s getting more and more popular, editors and publishers aren’t likely to cut it.
When the anime version of Spy x Family was announced at the end of October 2021, the manga had only been published for two years and six months.
Now that the anime has made the series even more popular, the manga is still at the top of the Oricon week sales charts.
Spy x Family is here to stay in the long run based on how popular the anime and manga are.
How Many Years is Spy x Family going to Run?
The series just turned three years old on March 25, 2022, but it’s already getting a two-season anime version. This alone shows how well-known Spy x Family is in Japan.
If the series keeps getting more and more popular, fans will still be able to read about the Forger family in 3 to 5 more years!
My guess is that it will take between 3 and 5 years. But, like many fans, I want the show to keep going at least until the fifth year.
Why is Spy x Family very Popular?
Keep in mind that the first season of the Spy x Family anime that’s airing this Spring 2022 isn’t over yet. It only has 12 episodes. But because the characters are likable and the story is fun, the show still has a lot of fans.
Fans of Spy x Family are slowly but surely making memes, fan art, fan fiction, and animated music videos with the characters. Then, to show how much they like the series, they post their art on social media for everyone to see.
It is interesting to watch a new series grow and get attention from all over the world and reach new heights. Its popularity is likely due in part to the fact that it takes place in the Old West during the Cold War.
During the 1940s and 1950s, not much Japanese manga took place in the West. Spy x Family stands out among other Shonen Jump+ titles because of these things and its interesting story.
Before getting back to work on the second season of Spy x Family episodes in the fall of 2022, CloverWorks and WIT Studio will take a short break. Most likely, Volumes 4 through 6 of the manga will be turned into movies.
I’d also like to talk about how the show’s first episode made people feel.
The idea behind the anime Spy x Family doesn’t strike a chord with people who have never seen it. The characters’ goals are easy to guess: “Learn the essence of family life, even if it started out as fake.”
We all know how this will end: “The characters will get closer to each other until they accept each other as family, even though they aren’t related by blood.”
I didn’t expect the “laugh-out-loud gags” that come with the slice-of-life themes of the show. People who watch a lot of anime are too familiar with the action, comedy, and slice-of-life tropes in Spy x Family.
But the beloved cast is what brought me and other new viewers to the show. I could watch any kind of action-packed, funny, slice-of-life anime. But I’m not as interested in these characters’ stories as I am in Loid’s, Yor’s, and Anya’s.
I have nothing else to say. I hope this article makes you want to start or keep watching this popular show. Start the manga or read it after you finish the anime. So what? It’s cool. The characters are just as fun to see in the manga as they are in the anime.
Spy x Family manga creator and author Tatsuya Endo should live forever. May all of his characters reach their goals by the end of the series, and may he write more stories that readers will love.
