Is Spy x Family worth reading? 3 Reasons Why You Should Pick Up This Trending Manga

With over 20 million physical and digital copies sold of the first seven volumes in circulation as of May 2022, there is no doubt that Spy x Family (pronounced as “Spy Family”) has easily become a bestselling and fan-favorite manga. Written and illustrated by Tatsuya Endo, Spy x Family kicked off in 2019 and is still running today with nine volumes currently available.

The story follows a spy who has to "build a family" to execute a mission, not realizing that the girl he adopts as his daughter is a telepath, and the woman he agrees to be in a marriage with is a skilled assassin

If you are curious about this trending manga, you might actually have one question in mind: is the hype worth it? Read through to discover three reasons why Spy x Family should be included in your to-be-read list.


Comedy, drama, and action in one manga

One of the most impressive characteristics of this shonen manga is how it pushed boundaries and was able to perfectly blend three genres: comedy, drama, and action. And this is one of the major reasons why you should read Spy x Family.

The manga is set to entertain readers for it is flawlessly written and beautifully illustrated, packed with political drama, spy thrillers, gorgeous action scenes, wholesome comedy, and of course, sweet “family” drama.


Lovable and relatable characters

In this light manga, we definitely don’t get a traditional dad-mom-and-child trio. Unlike many shonens, the characters avoid cliches in Spy x Family. As their interests converge, master spy Twilight, assassin Yor Briar, and young telepath Anya will have to find a way to work and live together despite their different secrets and dark sides

As written in Shogi Pineapple, “[Spy x Family is] Touching, deep, and believable, they [characters] are the main reason for the success of Spy x Family. Their relationship works wonderfully and the drawing, at first glance black and minimalist, offers a wide range of nuances in terms of the emotions of these three heroes.”


Spy x Family is currently streaming on Netflix

This May 2022, Netflix released the first season of Spy x Family, and fans of the manga will be delighted to know that the anime religiously adapted the scenes from the manga, hence, vividly bringing the action-packed and whirlwind story to life. Though, of course, the manga gives more detailed storytelling on the lives of Twilight, Yor Briar, and Anya, the Netflix adaptation still won’t fail to satisfy if you’re looking for a light, comedic, and thrilling anime adventure.

With 12 episodes, Spy x Family garnered a rating of 8.9 out of 10 with more than 420,000 votes on My Anime List. One reviewer says, “Spy x Family is an anime of the year candidate. Yes, I say this with confidence for it managed to exemplify entertainment at consistent quality. It's an anime that sells itself as exactly what it is without misleading the audience… There are plenty of reasons why I believe Spy x Family indeed deserves its rating and to be quite honest, this is one of the few anime that I can recommend just about anyone this year.”

Good news! Due to the popular demand, fans won’t have to wait long as season 2 of Spy x Family will also come out before the year ends–so better read the manga and watch Season 1 before this happens.
