Review: Spy x Family Vol 2 by Tatsuya Endo

cover199653-medium Master spy Twilight is the best at what he does when it comes to going undercover on dangerous missions in the name of a better world. But when he receives the ultimate impossible assignment—get married and have a kid—he may finally be in over his head!

Twilight must infiltrate the prestigious Eden Academy to get close to his target Donovan Desmond, but does his daughter Anya even have the academic prowess to get in to the school? But perhaps the truly impossible mission is making sure Anya becomes a school scholar and befriends Donovan’s arrogant son, Damian!

Yet another amusing and action-packed installment of Spy x Family!  This has quickly become a favorite of mine and I’m only two volumes in so far.  That tells you something about how much fun this series has been so far.

The whole family – Loid, Yor, and Anya – is an accident waiting to happen.  Loid, aka Twlight, is a master spy.  Yor is an assassain.  And Anya?  She only looks sweet and innocent because the truth is, she can read your mind.

Of the three, Anya’s probably my favorite.  She’s adorable and a bundle of energy, like any kid her age, despite not being anything like other kids.  Seeing things through her eyes and watching her trying to process the things mom and dad are doing and saying – without quite understanding that they’re a spy and an assassain – is a delight.  She’s so eager to make them  happy and proud, that she sometimes makes giant mistakes.

Loid and Yor are a cute couple, even if they don’t realize it yet.  Despite their differences and obvious dangers brought on by their careers, I think they’ll eventually make great parents for Anya.  They play well off of each other and call me a hopeless romantic, but I’d love for the three of them to wind up as a real family in the end.

I was excited to see Anya start at the Eden Academy in this volume and look forward to seeing how she manuevers her way through the social network of such a prestigious school in the coming volumes.  There is so much potential for hijinks and craziness – not just from Anya and her new friend, but Loid and Yor as well!  Is volume 3 here yet because I think I need more of this crazy Forger family!

Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy in exchange for an honest review.  

4/5
