Spy x Family is quite an original premise within the realm of anime, following the spy known as Twilight as he ventures toward a new mission that throws him quite the curveball. Needing to assemble a faux-family in order to accomplish his task, Cloverworks and Wit Studio are teaming up to begin the first season of the anime adaptation this April. Before the first episodes arrive, it seems that fans are looking to dive into the story via its manga, with some major sales being shared for the series.
Spy x Family first hit the scene in 2019, created by mangaka Tatsuya Endo and documenting the story of the world-renowned spy known as Twilight. With a new mission requiring that the master of espionage assemble a family of his own, he finds an unexpected wife and daughter, with the former being a deadly assassin and the latter having the ability to read others’ minds. While the adventures can often be deadly serious, the series also excels at the amount of humor that is told through this hilarious scenario.
Twitter Outlet WSJ_Manga shared the big news that Spy x Family currently has 15 million copies of its manga in circulation, proving that there are plenty of anime fans that are looking to experience the story of this idiosyncratic family before they receive an anime adaptation from the major anime studios of Cloverworks and Wit:
