SPY x FAMILY table of contents

For the agent known as "Twilight", no job is too high when it comes to peace's sake. As Westalis' main spy, Twilight works tirelessly to prevent extremists from unleashing war with neighboring Ostania. For his final mission, he must investigate the Ostania politician Donovan Desmond, who is 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 with the family.

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