Summary for SPY x FAMILY

Known as "Twilight", no job is too high for the agent when it comes to peace. As the master spy of Westalis, Twilight works tirelessly to prevent extremists from unleashing a 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.
