Yet another great installment in this series! It's been awhile since I really got into a manga series and this one got me back into the genre! I can't wait for what happens next!
I absolutely love Spy Family and really enjoyed this installment of the series. I love getting to see more of Loid, Yor, and Anya and am excited to see how the story continues in the next volume!
Spy x Family #8 is a thrilling, action-packed manga that is sure to captivate readers of all ages. The story follows the adventures of a spy, a super-powered assassin, and their adopted daughter, who must work together to protect their family and the world. The artwork is stunning and the plot is engaging, making this a must-read for anyone looking for a thrilling read. The characters are complex and likable, and their relationships are explored in a meaningful way. The art style is unique and the action scenes are intense and exciting. There is a lot of heart and humor in this series, making it an enjoyable and entertaining read. Highly recommended!
I love this series so much. I dont think there will come a time where I won't enjoy these characters. The author continues to impress by blending action, romance, funny moments, family and friendship dynamics perfectly.
I continue to absolutely love and obsess over this series!
I’m totally here for Yor being a badass and the general chaos that comes with these volumes. I feel like we’re continuing to get to know the characters and they’re being given more depth as the volumes continue. It is slightly frustrating to see Loid continue to dodge finding out but I guess that’s the point? I’m sure it’ll be even more satisfying when the reveal happens!
I’m also forever an Anya stan, I love her she’s so cute!
Spy X Family is a a manga guaranteed to sweep up any reader. Anya is hilarious and adorable, making her a unique and odd protagonist. The hilarious tale of espionage continues in this terrific volume. I can't wait for the next one.
Do not let Franky fool you, he is not the focus; Yor is. Aboard the ship we get a glimpse into Yor's own personal thoughts of motherhood in this facade of a marriage. It is an intriguing look into the hope she has for belonging not just what she can potentially gain, but what she can hope for and lose in the process; making it all the more engaging when Loid and Anya are in the ship as well.
This is yet another fun romp with the family we come to know and love with the slick raucous action we have come to expect from Tatsuya Endo; simultaneously silly and classy.
I'm not sure if this is a jump-the-shark volume or the next evolution in the over the top awesomeness of this series. It feels like it's coming to a climax even if there is still a ton of milage in the boarding school and relationship plotlines. Is the writer painting himself into a corner?
I. LOVE. THIS. SERIES. Yor is MAI QUEEN and this wonderful story of found family has hit me in the feels and won't stop using my heart as a punching bag. I hope and pray that this series will never have a volume that gets less than 100% enthusiasm from me. It just keeps getting better and better as it goes, unlike other manga/manhwa series that have sorely disappointed me.
If you like found family, don't mind some OTT it's almost cartoonish violence and a SLOOOOOW burn romance (I SO SHIP Yor and Lloyd, SQUEAL) with an adorable little girl and huge dog with a heart of gold, then this series is for YOU.
I'm so glad that we get to see Yor shine in this one and I LOVE how she is starting to really think about what she does and her new family and how it all links together. I LOVE MAMA BEAR YOR.
5, ALL THE STARS, stars.
My thanks to NetGalley and VIZ Media LLC for an eARC copy of this to read and review.
Another great addition to Spy x Family! The characters only get funnier and better. Anya is so adorable, Loid is the best, and You is the best kind of psychotic mother/wife.
Love, love, love this series. The mashup of spies, assassins, and found families is such an enjoyable blend. The father/daughter relationship between Twilight and Anya continues in this volume and is a great element of the series. And, of course, its always fun to watch Yor in her capacity as a super assassin. The volume also ends on a bit of a cliffhanger so the next installment cannot come soon enough.
This is my absolute favorite manga series. I adore all the characters and the art is clear and engaging. Anya Forger is my favorite character and this installment was fantastic! I can't wait to see what they all get up to next!
This was so action-packed! I've gotten so attached to these characters that I was on the edge of my seat through the entire volume and now I'm wondering HOW I'm supposed to cope with the wait for vol. 9 😭
Jump back into the world of the Forger family in this vol with the focus on our older female lead Yor! We get a more inside look of her job as we follow her on her mission to protect a mother and son escaping the underworld. We meet a new character, who had me laughing out loud at his side jabs. We also get to see some cute scenes of Loid and Anya as she tires to get her adopted father to relax on their vacation. Can't wait for more of this family!
Another great volume in this series! Yor gets called in to work as a bodyguard for a woman and her child on a cruse ship, while Anya and Lloyd are also there because Anya won tickets. It's really nice to have the spotlight on Yor and her line of work. She's really cool and this volume does well to highlight that. I'm really excited to read the next volume!
I am an avid fan of Spy x Family series! From the manga to the anime, I simply love this series. The best part of this volume was learning so much about my favorite assassin mom, Yor! Yor is just such a relatable character for me. I'm so looking forward to the next volume. I think that this is actually not a bad volume to jump into the series with as well. as it is action packed. 5/5 for me!
It's Yor's turn to shine! After being criminally underused for seven volumes, volume eight's focus is on Yor as she takes on the task of being bodyguard to a woman and her infant on the run. The only catch? Yor's much better suited for assassination than guard duty. And Anya and Loid are also on the cruise ship she's working on. Yes, there will be very little smooth sailing on this ship...
<i>Spy x Family</i> is one of the most perfect mixes of silly and sweet out there, and this volume is no exception. Putting the focus on Yor does give us a bit less Anya, but what we get is still wonderful, particularly since she's absolutely aware of what Yor's doing and why Loid can't find out about it. Loid, meanwhile, is truly terrible at relaxing, and he spends most of the trip worrying that he's not being a good enough dad to Anya, which frankly makes him one of the best dads in manga. But most important is that putting Yor in the spotlight means that we finally truly get inside her head as she tries to figure out why she's still working in this dangerous field and what Loid and Anya are to her. A cover story? Or her real family? While we may have an easy answer for her, she certainly doesn't, and that really drives the book.
Also, a shout-out to the translator of this volume, Casey Loe. Anya's little kidisms (mistaking "suite" for "sweet," for example) are pitch-perfect and manage to be funny and real without being twee. That's harder to do than you might think, and Loe deserves a lot of credit for not only pulling it off, but enhancing the story with an excellent translation.
While I adore this series on the whole, this particular addition missed out on what I love about it generally-- which is extraordinary people pretending/trying to fit into a normal world. Anya going to school, Lloyd dealing with fatherhood, Yor making her way in the world in a fake-marriage scenario. However, this particular volume was VERY action heavy, dealing with a contained bottle episode fight scene wherein Yor is tasked to a protection detail, while Anya tries her best to keep Lloyd unaware of the drama on board. Likewise, rather than seeing the "normal" characters of previous volumes (Anya's classmates, Yor's coworkers) the secondary cast is entirely made up of seasoned assassins and murderers. So much so, I was beginning to wonder if ANYONE on this ship was a normal human.
Maybe now that the manga has an anime, it might be trying to keep a movie visual aspect in mind in its creation for the prolonged fight scenes, but it's not what I loved about the series. This volume is setting up some inner turmoil for Yor (as this volume is very Yor-centered) and her future relationship with her found family. I found her inner monologue to be the best aspect of this particular volume-- additionally, Lloyd and his attempts to make this a memorable vacation for Anya.
It also left me with one question: Who is dog-sitting the prophetic dog? Would have loved a small chapter detailing the dogs exploits being dog-sat.
I really liked this volume. It was a really fun exploration of Yor as a character, managing to be both very contemplative and full of cool action. I can't wait for the next volume!
A strong continuation in the Spy X Family series! While the previous titles focused more on Twilight and Anya's missions, Volume 8 gives readers a peak into Yor's life and perspective on her own secret identity. Fans of the previous volumes will be pleased to read more about Yor and her assassin job!
