A famous men’s magazine in Japan has chosen Loid and Anya Forger from Spy x Family to be the stars of its latest issue.
According to ComicBook.com, Men’s Non-No, a monthly publication dedicated to lifestyle and fashion, features the iconic father-son duo on the cover of its January/February 2024 issue. Men’s Non-No body also highlighted winter issues on its official X page (formerly Twitter). The cover art features Anya and Loid posing with toy weapons – an image that reflects Anya’s role as Loid’s collaborator for world peace.
Anime fans can go on a real-life Spy x Family cruise
Spy x Family partners with Tokai Kisen Travel and Tours to offer a cruise experience specifically designed for fans of the hit shounen series.
Although Tatsuya Endo’s original Spy x Family manga debuted in 2018, the series’ popularity skyrocketed in 2022 following the release of the anime adaptation by CloverWorks and Wit Studios. Soon, Loid, Anya, and Yor Forger became major media icons across Japan, with dozens of companies and publications using the characters in their marketing. Earlier this month, sister magazine Men’s Non-No also featured Anya, this time with her best friend, Becky Blackwell. Google Japan also recently launched an Anya-focused marketing campaign for its Google Lens app. In the first ad, “detective” Anya is shown looking for clues with a magnifying glass while the narrator describes how to use the app.
The story of Spy x Family begins with Loid Forger, aka Agent Twilight, a world-famous spy who has spent years trying to maintain peace between Westalis and its bordering nation, Ostania. To infiltrate the elite academy called Eden Academy, Twilight takes a wife named Yor and adopts a young girl named Anya, despite knowing nothing about children. However, unbeknownst to him, Yor is a notorious assassin, while Anya is a psychic who can read his every thought. Although Anya’s behavior sometimes confuses Twilight, he quickly forms a genuine bond with her. Anya, passionate about her father’s profession, tries to help him in any way she can while keeping her powers a secret from even her adoptive parents.
