Talented spy Twilight has his work cut out for him, procuring both a wife and a child for his mission to infiltrate an elite private school. What he doesn’t know is that the wife he’s chosen is an assassin and the child he’s adopted is a telepath!
The TV anime adaptation for SPY x FAMILY is scheduled to be released in 2022 with Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Hunter x Hunter 1999, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn) in the director’s chair at WIT STUDIO and CloverWorks.
