On this episode Dan and Jake talk about spies, specifically Spy X Family! But which spy?
James Bond? No, we did that already!
Austin Powers? No, much to Dan’s disappointment.
Loid Forger aka Twilight? YES! Join the brothers as they follow a different family, the Forgers, as they action and antics play-out in Spy X Family!
In this manga turned anime series, a spy on a quest for peace must undergo his most difficult mission yet… starting a family!?! He’s got a week to start a family from scratch or face complete failure. When he finally does assemble his nuclear family…things aren’t as they seem.
Dad is a spy, Mom is an assassin known as Princess Thorn, and the daughter, Anya, is a telepath! Can the spy Twilight maintain peace between enemy nations and peace at home? Can the Thorn Princess keep everyone in the dark about her killer career? Will young Anya get good grades at school or the silenced pistol she has her eyes set on?
