Spy X Family Episode 1 Review: Spy Mission Begins!

The highly anticipated anime adaptation of the Spy X Family series finally made its debut with the first episode, Operation Strix on April 9, 2022. As one of the most anticipated anime of 2022, Episode 1 certainly didn’t disappoint with how the series started. † The animation from Wit Studio and CloverWorks was top notch, the color palette and art were beautiful, and the great dubbing of the voice actors (especially Anya) together made it perfect.

There was never a moment when one would be bored. What looked like a serious anime about a lone wolf spy who looked both intimidating and cold turned out to be a series of misadventures involving his adopted daughter.

Episode 1 – Synopsis

The story begins with Loid Forger – better known as Twilight – solving a case and showing off the cool tactics and moves of a pro. We can see that he is the best at his game and has no qualms performing risky jobs. His latest mission is a very dangerous one, and in order to complete it, he eventually needs a child.

Thus, the episode shifts to an orphanage where he wants to pick out a child who is preferably smart – the least they have to do is read and write. Finally, he meets Anya, a little 6-year-old girl who has been taken and dumped in the orphanage several times. He is amazed at Anya’s skills when he sees that she can easily solve a difficult crossword puzzle in a minute and immediately adopts her.

There’s a catch though – Anya doesn’t really have an excellent IQ or a passion for studying, but a rather unique gift. She can read minds, so she eventually knows all the answers. As Loid’s new daughter, Anya is excited – not only at being adopted, but also discovering by reading her mind that Loid is a spy – a profession she admires.

Loid isn’t exactly great with kids or fond of them, and we see him hilariously struggling with becoming a new dad and trying to understand how Anya’s mind works. In a series of events, the mischievous Anya is kidnapped by some enemies trying to track down Twilight, and Loid comes to her rescue. Seeing how difficult it is to have a kid around on a dangerous mission, he decides to give up on Anya.

In an emotional moment and a look into our main character’s past, we also see Loid remembering why he hated crying children – it reminded him of himself as a child when no one came to his aid. He also remembers becoming a spy because he wanted to make sure there was a world where children wouldn’t have to cry.

However, through her mind-reading, Anya sees through all this and stubbornly stays with her father. He too decides to take her either way – which turns out to be a great decision as Anya passes the exam for the prestigious school she needs for the mission. The news makes Loid overjoyed and we see a moment of happiness in him before quickly falling over from exhaustion – something that warms the viewer and assures us of the stress and fatigue our protagonist is in.

In another funny moment, after the opening has been played, we see a letter from the school stating that both parents must be present for the next round. Loid is frustrated that he would have to find another new member of his family – a make-up woman.

personal thoughts

Spy X Family Episode 1 was as good as it gets. Nothing was rushed unnecessarily, and since the episode was mostly Loid-focused, we got some good progress on how the story would form. The viewer not only enjoys the funny situation that our protagonist is in, but also gets a little understanding of his character. We also see a glimmer of hope for change and development in its lonely world, and the cliffhanger with the assignment was perfect for the viewer to want to see more and more.

Catch Spy X Family on Crunchyroll to see more of the adorable Anya, our handsome spy Loid and the woman who will be debuting soon and likely to become a favorite as well. The next episode will air on April 16, 2022 and viewers can expect another round of laughter, emotions and fluff!
