SPY x FAMILY Manga Takes Week Off, Replaced With I SPY One-Shot from Creator Endo

I SPY

 

For those looking forward to the next chapter of the SPY x FAMILY manga, you'll have to wait another two weeks for it to be released says editor Shihei Lin on his Twitter account today. While that may seem like bad news, instead of this week's chapter of the tactical daily life manga, a one-shot manga by Tatsuya Endo will be released in its place called I SPY

 

 

 

 

Lin explains that I SPY is the "origin" of SPY x FAMILY, likely being the original concept that became the hit series. The Japanese release of the one-shot will come with a commentary piece about the "secret story" of its production. It's not confirmed if the one-shot will hit platforms outside Japan as of writing.

 

SPY x FAMILY is serialized bi-weekly on Shonen Jump+ in Japan, with 12.5 million copies of the physical manga series currently printed as of the upcoming release of volume 8 on November 4 in Japan. Viz Media releases the series in English on the Shonen Jump and Manga Plus app as it comes out in Japan, as well as physical volumes.

 

The TV anime adaptation for SPY x FAMILY is scheduled to be released in 2022 with Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Hunter x Hunter 1999Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn) in the director's chair at WIT STUDIO and CloverWorks. Kazuaki Shimada (The Promised NeverlandMahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara) is adapting the original manga designs into character designs for the anime. (K)NoW_NAME is producing the music for the series. Crunchyroll will stream the anime as it airs, describing it as such:

 

Everyone has a part of themselves they cannot show to anyone else.

 

At a time when all nations of the world were involved in a fierce war of information happening behind closed doors, Ostania and Westalis had been in a state of cold war against one another for decades.

 

The Westalis Intelligence Services' Eastern-Focused Division (WISE) sends their most talented spy, "Twilight," on a top-secretmission to investigate the movements of Donovan Desmond, the chairman of Ostania's National Unity Party, who is threatening peace efforts between the two nations.

 

This mission is known as "Operation Strix."

 

It consists of "putting together a family in one week in order to infiltrate social gatherings organized by the elite school that Desmond's son attends."

 

"Twilight" takes on the identity of psychiatrist Loid Forger and starts looking for family members. But Anya, the daughter he adopts, turns out to have the ability to read people's minds, while his wife, Yor, is an assassin! With it being in each of their own interests to keep these facts hidden, they start living together while concealing their true identities from one another.

 

World peace is now in the hands of this brand-new family as they embark on an adventure full of surprises.
