By the way, the author has a twitter and usually posts illustrations whenever new chapters pop up. Chapter 11’s is Yuri.

Not to say that I think the manga would be better if he was more suspicious of her, it's just a very funny blind spot for this otherwise overcautious super spy to have.

Same for Yor, who completely bought that a car chase with gang of criminal is a completely ordinary event in the life of psychiatrist. I love the implication that them being super spy/super assassin their whole lives, their expectations for physical prowess and general competence of an ordinary person is just completely skewered.

"Yes, of course she kicked that grown man through wall, what's so weird about that, everyone can do it, no?"

They're both very good at sniffing out enemies but are equally as good at making themselves appear on the level (or alternatively, in Yor's case, she's just too dumb to draw any suspicion) , so I guess those two skills cancel each other out.

Their mind-reader daughter being an idiot helps too.

Yup yup. As another example, Lloyd thought Franky the Information Broker (a profession that typically doesn't involve any physical exertion or combat prowess whatsoever) could help with fighting the art thieves.

The YES / YES pillows absolutely killed me. Someone put me into a cryogenic chamber until the next bunch of chapters release. thanks in advance.

I’m glad the release schedule is biweekly instead of monthly, at least.

Um, they're a Japanese thing that lets couples communicate whether they want to have sex that night without actually having to talk to each other about it (which would be embarrassing I guess). One side of the pillow says Yes, and the other side says No, so you just flip them over before you go to bed. A bed with double Yes pillows means they are going to gently caress, immediately.

That's awesome.


I though it was funny because I just figured it was to further emphasize that they were definitely, really, totally married for real, yes. They're so married in fact that both pillows even say yes.

I'm not sure they've even held hands with each other yet. Closest they've come is both holding Ania's hands, if I'm not forgetting a stray panel somewhere.

Anya's too young and too starved for a nuclear family to be scared. Both parents have demonstrated that they have her wellbeing foremost in their minds. Yor in particular.

That's how they make money with this free service. You can read the first three chapters and the latest three, but if you want the ones in the middle you need to buy... something. I'm not sure if that something currently exists or not.

Yeah, I’m not seeing any purchase or subscription options on the MangaPlus site? That’s a shame though.

I’ll make a note in the OP about the chapter availability. Just gotta google for the chapters in between I guess.

Pretty sure the "something" in this case is volume releases.

Which would be all fine and good if English-speaking countries actually got volume releases day and date

Also, Pantsu means pants right? I'm asking because it seems so weird to name his pants in the same breath as his eye and haircolor.

https://tsugimanga.jp

Tsugimanga is an award series focusing mainly on new manga (either <5 volumes printed or started before the contest begin date), and it has categories for both physically published comics and online comics.

Incidentally, Chainsawman won 2nd place in the physical category. It shares the same editor as Spy x Family, so I guess that person knows how to pick interesting series
