Hello Gemmies! I have a entertaining new manga review to share with you today. Please note: I received a digital ARC of this book (via NetGalley) from its publisher in exchange for an honest and fair review.
Spy X Family Vol 1 by Tatsuya Endo is the first magna in the Spy X Family Series. This was my first Manga and I enjoyed it immensely. It was such a fresh and fun read that I devoured it in one sitting! What originally pulled me in was the cover art. The cover is sleek and modern, it makes me want to know more about what the character is planning. The entire storyline is unique and the characters interaction with each other was great; even darn right funny at times. We follow the story of world class spy Twilight who, in order to complete his latest assignment must acquire a wife and child, but of course his chosen "targets" are not normal. The child Anya ends up being a telepath, and the mom Yuri is an assassin.
The artwork is superb. I felt the style is well suited to the story and very clean and crisp. This was a nice departure from everything else I am currently reading and wholly unique. I will definitely continue on with the series.
Published by VIZ Media, Spy X Family is will release June 2, 2020 and is available for preorder from all major booksellers. I give Spy X Family 5 out of 5 gems. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in this great series. Happy Reading!
