As a result of the anime’s popularity and excellent ratings, SPY x FAMILY reached its first season with an even higher audience number than before.
According to the president of TV Tokyo, the anime performed best out of all the shows in July 2022. He also mentioned that SPY x FAMILY had registered an exciting audience, meaning the number of people who watch episodes later.
As such, the first anime season only has a 6% rating, but its live score is 3.6%. This is reason enough to expect changes in the showtime for Season 2 of TV Tokyo.
What is the story of SPY x FAMILY ?
The anime follows Twilight, a spymaster from Westalis who works to prevent extremists from unleashing war against Ostania. For his latest mission, he must investigate politician Donovan Desmond and infiltrate his son’s school: the prestigious Eden Academy.
Thus, the spy faces the most difficult task of his career: getting married, having a child, and having a family.
Twilight quickly adopts humble orphan Anya to play a six-year-old daughter and a possible student at Eden Academy. As a wife, she meets Yor Briar, an absent-minded office worker who needs a fake partner to impress her friends.
However, Twilight isn’t the only one with a secret life: Yor is actually a deadly assassin, and getting married also creates the perfect cover for her. Meanwhile, Anya is not the average girl she appears to be. She is an Esper, the product of secret experiments that allow her to read minds.
