The main cast of the Spy x Family anime appeared once again in a live program to draw special illustrations, this time for the finale of the Cruise Adventure arc. Takuya Eguchi, Atsumi Tanezaki, Saori Hayami, and Kenichiro Matsuda each made their own hand-drawn sketches about the events of Season 2 episode 9, titled “The Hands That Connect the Future.” The illustrations were later posted with colors on X (formerly Twitter).
These are the first special illustrations of Spy x Family Season 2 since the first season’s live programs of episode 4, episode 12, and episode 16. See the cast and their episode 34 illustrations below:
The first Spy x Family special illustration for the Cruise Adventure arc is by cast member Kenichiro Matsuda, who narrates the anime and voices Bond. He drew his illustration with Anya holding Yor’s weapon, Twilight in disguise, and Yor in a flying kick.
The second illustration was drawn by Atsumi Tanezaki, the voice actress of Anya. Her illustration presents Anya’s iconic “Rising Hope,” Yor’s finishing move, and Twilight running to throw the ticking bomb overboard.
Meanwhile, Saori Hayami, Yor’s voice actress, also drew the events of “Rising Hope” with the addition of the enemy, a cruise background, fireworks, and Twilight defusing the bombs behind the scenes.
The last Spy x Family special illustration of the Cruise Adventure arc is by Takuya Eguchi, the voice actor of Twilight/Loid Forger. His illustration features Yor/Thorn Princess during the intense and bloody rooftop battle against the assassins, also including the firework background.
Spy x Family is based on a manga by Tatsuya Endo. The first season of the anime aired in April 2022 and had a total of 25 episodes. In addition, an upcoming movie titled “SPY x FAMILY CODE: White” is set to premiere in December in Japan. Meanwhile, Spy x Family Season 2 is currently ongoing and is set to have 13 episodes. WIT Studio and CloverWorks are handling the animation of the series.
Crunchyroll streams the anime and describes the plot as:
World peace is at stake and secret agent Twilight must undergo his most difficult mission yet—pretend to be a family man. Posing as a loving husband and father, he’ll infiltrate an elite school to get close to a high-profile politician. He has the perfect cover, except his wife’s a deadly assassin and neither knows each other’s identity. But someone does, his adopted daughter who’s a telepath!
