Spy x Family Episode 3 has been released and anime fans are excited to finally see the Spy x Family ED trailer. Episode 3: Prepare for the Interview is a faithful adaptation of Chapter 3 and way too cute to miss. Anya immediately calls Yor her mommy, and the three have a family outing.
Anya also gives Yor a tour of the house and brags that she was a big girl and helped Dad clean up. Loid tells Yor the truth about Anya’s actions, much to Anya’s horror and Yor’s delight.
The anime has also added some new details. No significant spoilers, but you should watch episode 3 first.
What’s new in Spy x Family Episode 3 and what can we learn from the ending issue?
The stuffed animal Anya brought from the orphanage is called Mr. Chimera. Could this cute toy belong to her biological parents? In the anime, Yor calls the little girl Miss Anya and calls herself Anya’s mother.
Not a new mother. Not a stepmother. Yor treats Anya like she’s her biological mother and I love it! This happens in the manga, but the tour is more prominent in the anime.
The Spy x Family ED ending song animation gives us a first look at Yuri Briar: Yor’s younger brother who works as a civil servant in Ostenia. If the anime continues to follow the manga, it will be a while before we get to know it properly.
Will Yuri be a good uncle? What will Loid do when his new brother-in-law decides to look into his background? The official wiki hints that Yuri is very attached to Yor, but we’ll have to wait and see how many sparks fly over their interactions.
The future of Spy x Family looks bright
Despite the unnecessary drama surrounding the anime (outrage over Black Anya Forger fan art and claims that the Spy x Family anime has sexualized Anya), Spy x Family is one of the most popular shows right now. MyAnimeList has it as the third most popular anime, with Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and GinTama coming first and second.
This is amazing considering there are only three episodes available, and only the first one has been dubbed. Spy x Family is considered the most popular anime of the spring 2022 anime season.
If you like crazy antics, misunderstandings, spies and the true meaning of family. Then this is the best time to dive into the anime, and if you can’t wait for the next episode, dive into the manga.
The differences between the two mediums are minor, but worth pointing out and discovering.
