If Yotsuba starred in a “SPY” setting manga  
by Green Mylle
December 2nd, 2022, 6:00am
Rating: 7.0  / 10.0
The Good:
First time reading this manga and Anya’s character immediately reminds me of Yotsuba from Yotsubato (minus the psychic power). This is the main reason why I enjoyed the story.

The art is amazing although paneling can be at times confusing (mostly the fight scenes. I guess I’m used to bad paneling with mangas already. Very few mangaka achieve such great paneling techniques (Akira Toriyama and Inoue Takehiko for example). Character design is easily recognizable, some are generic though. Loid’s design is so blah compared to Anya and Yor.

The Bad (IMO):
Is a bit boring. I get it, it’s slice of life. I think there’s a reason why “Slice of Life” can be quite tricky as a genre. Yotsubato did it so well because for the most part, it’s grounded in reality (despite too much positivity). This is also why series like Honey and Clover worked even with a serious plot. Spy x Family suffers from repetitiveness similar to the manga series “Lies of the Sheriff Evans”. I wish it wasn’t in the SOL genre because the dramatic chapters doesn’t hit me. It’s just…there.

I might change my rating once it’s completed. It has the potential to still get better.

Found family and the horrors of war  
by Day Dreamer

Tatsuya Endo said that this series helped him out of his depression. I am grateful to him because this story helped me through the depression I’ve been facing the past few months. If it wasn’t for it, I’m not sure where my mental health would be today. I can’t imagine it’d be anywhere good.

(I’ve read up to latest chapter, 67.1, at the time this review is written)

What got me hooked is that this fictional cold war era world feels raw, lived in, believable. But more than that, it’s because I’ve genuinely come to love and care for these characters. There’s something about the theme of “found family” that is so poignant amidst the backdrop of our own modern world that is brimming with toxicity and dysfunction. It’s nice to come back to this world, to these (lonely) characters as they learn to slowly care for one another and form healthy relationship dynamics that maybe some of us long for (I know I do in my own life).

There are some subplots in this story that are truly amazing!! I can think of a few off the top of my head and I can’t wait to see them animated someday.

Although Anya is cute and the school arcs are wholesome, I’m getting to a point where I want this to turn a bit darker with more of a focus on the spy thriller aspect. I hope that as the tension inevitably unfolds between Loid and Yor’s respective organizations that we will get more of the darker elements of this war and what it means for our character’s loyalties.

Endo’s focus on significant themes like the meaning of found family, what “normal” is supposed to look like, the horrors of war, etc. are some of the reasons I will always love this heartwarming series. I can’t wait to read more! These characters deserve to finally be happy, fulfilled and at peace with themselves ✨

Reminding of Nisekoi

In that it takes long time for main plot to move forward. The initial premises are interesting, but after about 60 chapters repeating almost the same stuff, it has started to be bit bland, and maybe I should expect this situation to go on for a bit more. Tbh I feel kind of a bit let down since early on the story feels like a rather smart one, but it turns out it is not (I should have known the moment I saw the elegant headmaster). Oh it is fun, and endearing at times, but I hope it won't repeat same formulas for another 100-200 chapters.

Too many fillers

Have a good premise at first, but later chapters started to have too many fillers chapters. It'd still be fine if we're getting a weekly release, but monthly releases with too many fillers just make this story lose its light

Extremely frivolous  
by Joese
September 18th, 2021, 9:08am
Rating: 1.0  / 10.0
The premise is interesting it reminds me of premises of cartoons I use to watch, but I totally abhor how it tries to exalt clod blooded killing. The girl having powers is totally unnecessary

The best example of how frivolous it is the chapter they inscribe the girl to the school, if you like the then you'll probably like the rest but it totally rubs me the wrong way...

This is comedy gold! The whole family’s got secret identities and are living together as a fake family for one of Twilight’s (the spy) operations, and there are funny action-sequence missions, heartwarming family moments, friendships among school kids, and a (slow burn) romance 😀 I laughed out loud reading this! I think it’s mostly a pleasant, light read which I highly recommend 🙂 The art is also amazing 🤩

I live for the secret identity tag, and this series was 100% made for me. Excels in comedy, lovable characters, and art. Above average in drama, social commentary, and (slow burn)romance.

A great Hilarious suprise.

I randomly read the first chapter passing through manga plus and didn't stop till i was caught up lol. This is a surprisingly wholesome and really hilarious series, despite what the adult characters do for a living. Actually that part of it makes the story even more entertaining and funny. Not to mention the art and action moments are pretty good in this.
All 3 of the main characters have great personalities and are enjoyable to watch but the stand out is definitely the daughter. She is so hilarious at times and her reactions and "reading" moments are always the best. Cant recommend this enough and hope it gets an anime later.

If you're looking for a serious spy manga filled with twists, action and mystery....

...this is not it.

But! Give it a try. It's a light read, the characters are whimsical and the dynamics is so cute it's giving me heart problems. The forced drama and exaggerations are part of the gag, I'm sorry that some were put off by it. After all the plot-heavy manga I've been reading, this was a pleasant change I didn't know I needed. I personally loved it. (I live for Anya's reactions lol)

(Also, the chapters are pretty long and that always gets the mangaka into my good books >w<😉)

Didn't like it.

I gave it 10 chapters to change my mind, but I didn't like it as much as everyone else appears to. It's listed as a comedy and drama but it wasn't funny at all to me, and the drama was super forced. It was like watching horrible TV actors. Well, that's shounen for you, I guess. I should probably just stop reading shounen, tbh, especially when romance is included in the genre. Any time shounen and romance mix together you already know it's going to be a bunch of beating around the bush and concluded with a super lazy ass open end. I'm honestly not sure if Japanese people have any idea how relationships even work.
