“Thankfully, this year’s anime adaptation has brought a lot of excitement to my work. It was a year that passed so fast, with so many things happening that I don’t even know what to do with myself. I have often seen the Forger family around town and on TV, and although I used to look at it as if it was something else, I am very happy to be able to feel it a little more.” – Tatsuya Endo, via official website.
The mangaka continued, “Once again, I would like to thank the production team, the voice actors, all the people involved in the animation, and all the readers and viewers who support the work.”
“In 2023, there will be a second TV animation season and a theater version, so I hope that the anime will gain even more momentum in the future.” – Tatsuya Endo, via official website.
Where to read up to in the original manga series
The Spy x Family manga made its serialization debut in March 2019 and as of December 2022, 10 complete Tankobon volumes have been published in Japan.
The good news is that nine of those volumes have already been published in English – so where do you need to read up until, as to avoid spoilers for season 2 and the upcoming movie?
Season 1 episode 25 is expected to adapt up until volume 7 chapter 38 of the original manga; do not read past this chapter unless you wish to know spoilers for anime content in 2023.
