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 3 by Tatsuya Endo is the third magna in the Spy X Family Series. This series just keeps getting better and better. with each new installment. I love it so much! I never knew I needed to know what would happen if you created a family with an assassin mom, a world class spy dad, and a psychic child. But now I know and I can't stop thinking about them! Like Volumes 1 and 2, Spy X Family Vol 3 is pure joy from start to finish. I devoured it in one sitting! Things kick off right after the events in Vol 2. This time we meet Yuri, Yor's brother and let me just say, it is hysterical. He's an overprotective brother who is really secret police and cannot come to terms that his sister is married. Anya aka the psychic child is starting to branch out and use her abilities, and I am 100% here for it! Anya as a baby assassin is everything!
The entire storyline is unique and I love the contrast and dynamic between the family members. Each characters interaction with each other is wonderful. It's innocent, competitive, thrilling, and just darn right funny at times. What makes Spy X Family Vol 3 so great is the fantastic way Tatsuya Endo seamlessly balances action, espionage, personal turmoil, and heartwarming family moments. The breaking up of storylines into "missions" is brilliant. It also allows for the introduction of new elements that add to the complexity of the overall story. With each new volume we are introduced to a new character. This time it is Yor's brother Yuri. I cannot wait for Vol 4 where it looks like we will get a weapons enhanced pet!!
The artwork in Spy X Family Vol 4 is very appealing. I feel 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 Vol 3 will release on December 1, 2020 and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers. I give Spy X Family Vol 3 5 out of 5 gems. I'm looking forward to reading the next installment in this great series. Happy Reading!
