We previously talked about » @hanavbara «, a network artist duo that is characterized by its style of anime illustrations reminiscent of the 90s. The account converted the Squid Game franchise in that style in October 2021, and today he returns having done the same but with SPY x FAMILY .
Why is the drawing style of the 90’s so characteristic? There are many aspects to take into account, such as the use of thick and defined lines, use of shadows and firm lights; drawing of voluminous hair and black pupils; a pupil in the shape of an elongated ellipse; a visible nose in the shape of a slightly turned “L”; and a high position of the mouth.
Tatsuya began publishing the manga through Shueisha ‘s Shonen Jump Plus website in March 2019. The publisher published the eighth compiled book volume in November 2021, followed by the ninth on April 4 in Japan. An anime adaptation produced by the collaboration between WIT Studio and CloverWorks has been broadcast since April 9.
Synopsis for SPY x FAMILY
For the agent known as “Twilight”, no order is too high if it is for the sake of peace. Operating as Westalis’ master spy, Twilight works tirelessly to stop extremists from unleashing a war with neighboring Ostania. For his latest mission, he must investigate Ostanian politician Donovan Desmond by infiltrating his son’s school: the prestigious Eden Academy. Thus, the agent faces the most difficult task of his career: getting married, having a child and playing family.
Twilight, or “Loid Forger”, quickly adopts humble orphan Anya to play the role of a six-year-old daughter and prospective Eden Academy student. As a wife, she meets Yor Briar, an absent-minded office worker who needs a pretend partner to impress her friends. However, Loid is not the only one with a hidden nature. Yor is actually the deadly assassin “Thorn Princess” and for her, marrying Loid creates the perfect cover. Meanwhile, Anya is not the ordinary girl she appears to be; she is an esper, the product of secret experiments that allow her to read minds. Though she discovers her true identities, Anya is thrilled that her new parents are cool secret agents! She would never tell them, of course. That would spoil the fun.
