Heck, I'm sure they can turn a date night full of incidents into something romantic anyway. See: end of chapter 2.

That proposal scene is still one of the best of the series imo, but all of it is pretty great. Looking forward to how much better the inevitable real proposal will be, though

Anja will bring them together.

I just binged through this and it is amazing. I love every character so much. Everyone having a different extremely important secret real job is a great gimmick, and Ania is going to save the world.

You did well.


This chapter instills a lot of confidence in me. I was wondering how serious this would end up being. The humor has been excellent, but I was hoping for more spy stuff and it looks like we're getting it.


Also lol at Loid reading chapter 1 of Ania's comic.


And I for one love the new Forger name.

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.

Funny, I would've pegged Twilight as a Protoss player.


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.

The site is terrible on my phone (iPhone 6s). Sometimes it will start repeating pages or messing up the orders for me. Occasionally it will also stop scrolling. I usually fix it by reloading the page.

Viz is licensing this series. Also this means I'm fired because I don't work for Viz and they're bringing in their own translators. This is the last chapter I will have worked on.

It's a fun series and I'm extremely glad I got a chance to be a part of it for the brief moment before everyone realized it would become insanely popular.

Thanks for the excellent translations and insights. I hope you find something else to translate soon.



Does that mean it's going to disappear from the Manga plus site?

They already gave us something else to work on, and since there are a bunch of back-chapters to do first, it's actually making me more money.

But it just feels sad to no longer work on Spy x Family.

Okay, that's good.

No but it will probably follow suit and only have the first and last few chapters available. Thanks for the excellent work Clarste.

Isn't that the whole deal of MAngaplus? Only the first like5 and the last 5?

I thought the chapter was good fun.
It was a bit shallower than usual because it doesn't overtly work towards the end goal but instead just introduces a roadblock and some hi jinks around that.

However, it does feature quite a lot of more subtle character development. The biggest is at end for Loid who realizes that the line, which seemed like a lie about no longer being alone, actually probably came from much deeper than he would've wanted to admit.
And it furthers the relationship between Yor and Twilight.

I love that Twilight was able to dodge Yors attack again.



Regarding Yors employment, If Yor doesn't secretly work for Yuri via proxy I'll be very surprised. She's a probablyonly a contractor though.

I'm probably reading to much into this, but I'm thinking Yuri and Ania won't be seeing each other for a quite a while because it feels like him having some involvement in how she got her powers seems like such a logical step.

Happy to see Ania even if it was only for a flash.

Omnicrom posted:

I actually don't think so, and question whether Yuri knows what Yor does. Yuri explicitly states he's hiding his SSS work from Yor, but I think Yor probably never told her brother what her high-paying job actually is. Consider the flashback of Yor coming home covered in blood: Yuri's narration of that time is that she "worked herself bloody", which implies he thought that was her blood (reminder: it wasn't). Moreover from a baseline character perspective Yuri is super protective of Yor, so I doubt he'd want her doing dangerous things like murder for hire.

Ultimately I think it's very likely Yor does contract work for the SSS and Yuri maybe knows his agency has a gaggle of deniable hitmen available on short notice, but I doubt Yuri as of yet knows that Yor is "Thorn Princess".

Yeah that's what I meant by proxy. I wasn't very clear.

Though now that I think about it, it's also possible that he does in fact talk straight to Yor without knowing it. She has a codename and he has a codename. But she might recognize his voice and vice-versa.

She has like 3 panels, but owns all 3 of them. (partially because the only competition is the bed she's laying in)

Anya reacting in the background to thoughts and inner monologues of other characters is one of my favorite running gags.

Especially when it seems like she's going to respond to it, but instead gives just a regular kid remark.

I worry about her well being though. Her being worried About Loid and Yor is pretty sad

EDIT - Or I guess if you meant Yor, I don't see how she could pick that up from the false questioning even if she weren't a dummy.

I love that little sequence. It's a kid filling in the blanks using her limited experience.

I really look forward to seeing Loid's new study methods.

No, but seriously this manga is eventually going to have the family combining their powers to save the day/world and it's going to be glorious.

Seriously, I can't wait for the inevitable team up of Yor and Twilight to kick rear end to protect Ania.

I'd also say having to raise her younger brother from a young age, Yor's also a much better parent overall compared to Loid. She's far more intuitive to Anya's. Loid on the other has gotten better but it's clear that he's still putting the mission first.

That's also a function in how they came into the situation. Loid started from the point of view that Ania is a part of the mission, whereas Yor came in under the impression that Loid and Ania are already a family and that all she has to do to keep up her cover is be a mom.
It does help that she's really warming up to it though.

Why doesn't Loid just put Ania in a boxing ring, seems like mom gave her a bunch of solid pointers.

It's really great how this Manga doesn't gloss over Ania inherent fears of her abilities.
