We previously commented on the Twitter user "井上トロ (@g6xa3awstGCEljS)', who acquires the Blu-ray/DVD compilation packs of the season's most popular anime series and reviews what fixes have been made to the production for broadcast on TV. I couldn't miss the review SPY x FAMILYissued during the season of Spring 2022 (April-June)although it will come as no surprise to anyone that the corrections are actually very minimal.

  • The first correction comes when the forger family goes to the tailor shop to have Anya's uniform made. The correction comes with a change of shot, since the owner of the tailor's shop had her pincushion on her left wrist in the previous scene, but on her right wrist in the TV version at the scene change. On the Blu-ray this was fixed by removing the hand pad.

  • The second correction occurs when the assessments are made for the families of Eden Academy applicants. Master Henderson is touched by the elegance of the forger family and in desperation he drops his cane, although he is not on the ground when the shot is changed in the TV version. They corrected that on the Blu-ray by adding said stick lying on the floor after the scene change.

SPY x FAMILY

Did you notice these glitches when the anime aired on TV? They're certainly so minimal that only the most seasoned critics will have noticed. But the most interesting thing is how the animators found out about these glitches? Is there a "post-broadcast-on-TV" review board to review these aspects?

Summary for SPY x FAMILY

Known as "Twilight", no job is too high for the agent when it comes to peace. As Westalis' master spy, Twilight works tirelessly to prevent extremists from unleashing war with neighboring Ostania. For his latest mission, he must investigate Ostanian politician Donovan Desmond by infiltrating his son's school, the prestigious Eden Academy. The agent is thus faced with the most difficult task of his career: getting married, having children and playing family.

Twilight, or "Loid Forger," quickly adopts humble orphan Anya to play the role of a six-year-old daughter and prospective student at Eden Academy. As a wife, she meets Yor Briar, a absent-minded office worker who needs a fake partner to impress her friends. However, Loid is not the only one with a hidden nature. Yor is actually the deadly assassin "Thorn Princess" and for her, marrying Loid is the perfect cover. Meanwhile, Anya isn't the ordinary girl she seems; She is an esper, the product of secret experiments that allow her to read minds. Despite discovering her true identity, Anya is thrilled that her new parents are genius secret agents! Of course she would never tell them. That would spoil the fun.
