Spy x Family took the anime scene by storm when it made its debut, but it had a lot of ground to cover in its first season. Apart from the world-building and contextual cues, there were also the character backgrounds of Loid, Yor, and Anya Forger to surface.
Now that the core cast, setting, and central conflicts are established, it seems things will be picking up steam when the series returns on 1 October. A new trailer for its second cour begins on a tense note, with the arrival of a terrorist bomber threatening to disrupt world peace. As usual, Loid has to put a stop to his plans, but the serious narration and increased action means there’ll be higher stakes at play.
It’s not all serious business, though. There are also some slice-of-life and lighthearted moments involving dogs, as well as a glimpse of the anime’s theme song. Titled “Souvenir’, the track comes with a catchy beat, and is performed by popular band Bump of Chicken, whose credits include Detective Conan, Granblue Fantasy, and the greatest Pokémon music video of all time.
The second cour of Spy x Family is due to arrive on 1 October. The first part premiered on 9 April and came with the following synopsis:
“Master spy Twilight is the best at what he does when it comes to going undercover on dangerous missions in the name of a better world. But when he receives the ultimate impossible assignment—get married and have a kid—he may finally be in over his head! Not one to depend on others, Twilight has his work cut out for him procuring both a wife and a child for his mission to infiltrate an elite private school.
