Spy x Family (2019) by Tatsuya Endou has been one of the few manga to really appeal to me among the rest, probably because I haven’t read or watched any anime / manga with this sort of theme. Endou’s writing and art managed to have a strong impression on me and so I could not resist anaylsing why I think it is such a strong piece. In this episode I look at the manga’s smart genre fusion, constant introduction of challenges and more to try and explain the greatness of the first twenty chapters or so. On the side I discuss the research I’ve been doing regarding Isao Takahata’s film, Grave of Fireflies (1988).
