As of this writing, neither the anime nor the manga is complete, as they are still ongoing. With that said, let’s look at what we know about the anime and manga of Spy x Family.
Is Spy X Family Manga Finished?
Spy x Family is originally a manga that was serialized back in 2019 in Shonen Jump+. As such, it has been around for a while, as the manga was released right around three years before its anime was released. But is the Spy x Family already finished?
The Spy x Family manga is still ongoing, as it currently has nine volumes out. It still has some more volumes that are going to get released, as Spy x Family’s most recent release came out right around the same time as the anime.
Meanwhile, those who prefer to read manga in English should know that the Spy x Family English version in North America currently has seven volumes out. It is two volumes behind the original Japanese release of the manga.
At this point, the Spy x Family manga has around 17 million copies that are in circulation due to how popular it has become. The manga is still ongoing ever since it was serialized in 2019, and that means that those who want to binge through the Spy x Family may have to wait a while for the newer volumes to get released after binging through the first nine volumes.
Is Spy X Family Anime Finished?
Spy x Family anime is not finished. The anime adaptation of Spy x Family so far has only one season, released in 2022. The first season was aired in 2 parts. The first part aired between April 2022 and June 2022, consisting of 12 episodes. The second part of Spy x Family season 1 aired between October 2022 and December 2022, consisting of 13 episodes. Even though season 1 of Spy x Family is over, it was soon after the conclusion of the first season confirmed that the second season has been approved. It’s probably going to be ready in 2023. So, no, the Spy x Family anime is not over.
As mentioned, the Spy x Family is a very popular manga that has had plenty of fans worldwide because of how its story transcends different genres. Due to its popularity, it got the green light to get animated. The anime version of Spy x Family premiered on April 9, 2022.
Plenty of different anime fans love binging through an entire season in one day. So, in that regard, you might wonder if the Spy x Family anime is already finished so you can binge through it.
Considering that the Spy x Family anime is based entirely on the Spy x Family manga, it only follows that the anime version is not yet finished. As of this writing, the Spy x Family is still in its fourth episode, and that means that there is a long way to go before it catches up with the nine manga volumes that are currently out.
It would be completely silly to think that the Spy x Family is already finished. At the same time, the manga version is still ongoing, considering that the anime will be a 1:1 animated version of the manga. There might be anime series that was finished while the manga was still ongoing, but that isn’t the case with Spy x Family because it is based entirely on the events of the manga.
Is Spy X Family Canceled?
Another reason why there are some people who are thinking that Spy x Family might be finished already is the rumor that it was canceled. Yes, there were rumors that Spy x Family has been canceled. But is there really truth to the rumor that Spy x Family has been canceled?
No, Spy x Family has not been canceled. The rumor that it has been canceled stems from a TikTok post that tried to use cancel culture on Spy x Family because it had scenes that the TikTok user didn’t necessarily agree with.
In case you don’t know, cancel culture is a social media movement wherein people all over social media try to use their social media influence to try to “cancel” a person, movie, or show because they don’t necessarily agree with anything that the person, movie, or show says. And this culture seems to be one of the things that are wrong with social media, as there are some people who believe that they could effectively destroy the credibility of anyone or anything just because they have views that don’t necessarily align.
Going back, the TikTok post regarding Spy x Family is all about how a person wants to cancel the anime because there was a scene wherein Anya blushed in a moment with Loid Forger, her adoptive father. The TikTok user believes that the anime is sexualizing a young girl. But the truth is that Anya merely blushed because it was a touching moment between a father and a daughter.
The good news is that hardly anyone agreed with the TikTok user who tried to cancel Spy x Family. People came to the defense of Spy x Family by telling the TikTok user that they probably haven’t felt the love of a father, and that’s why they don’t understand the scene with Anya blushing.
So, with that said, Spy x Family’s anime series has not been canceled in all aspects. It is still ongoing and is actually going strong to the point that the anime has a rating that is above 9.0 on MyAnimeList. Considering that not a lot of anime are rated 9 or higher, Spy x Family getting a high rating means that it is popular among fans and critics alike. And that also means that it has a bright future and will probably go on for a very long time.
