Spy x Family anime released a new illustration of Yuri Briar as the countdown to the second cour of the series continues. There are only 4 days left until its October 1 premiere date. Saori Yonezawa, an animation director, drew the illustration.
The newly released illustration shows Yuri fanboying for her sister Yor Forger and the upcoming second cour with a big smile, wearing a headband and a white “I ♡ YOR” shirt while holding vividly colorfully heart-shaped fans in both hands as if he is at a concert. The headband has handwriting text, saying “Nee-san is the best,” while the fans say “4 Days Left” on the left and “Until Spy x Family’s Broadcast” on the right respectively. He is also wearing two badges of Yor and there is a tag of “Spy x Family” at the bottom left. While all of this is happening, the Forger family’s little daughter Anya (technically his niece) is looking up to him with a mortified look on her face. The illustrator’s name is credited with the person’s role at the bottom right corner: Animation Director Saori Yonezawa.
Kensho Ono is voicing the character with sister-complex and he even quote-tweeted the anime’s official Twitter account’s post on September 27 night: “Nee-san is the best!“
