Spy x Family manga was updated with chapter 73 on Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ on Monday and the manga’s author Tatsuya Endo posted an illustration of Anya and Bond to inform his followers of the new chapter’s release. It was also announced that this marks the final update of this year and that the series will have a break. The next chapter is slated for January 23, 2023. The manga creator drew Henry Henderson and Martha for the previous, 72nd chapter.
The illustration features Anya and Bond, in Christmas costumes. Anya is saying, in her usual way: “Fank you very much for 2022. Have a nice year.“
Tatsuya Endo has been drawing the Spy x Family manga in Shueisha’s online manga service Shonen Jump + since its launch on March 25, 2019. The manga surpassed 26.5 million circulating copies with the 10th volume’s release on October 4. The WIT STUDIO and CloverWorks’ collaborative anime Spy x Family aired from April to June 2022 as the first cour with 12 episodes, and the second cour aired from October to December of the year with a total of 13 episodes.
