posted on by Egan Loo
Tatsuya Endō's SPY×FAMILY manga is inspiring its first stage musical next spring. The production will run at Tokyo's Imperial Theatre in March, before going on a nationwide tour from April to May.
TOHO is producing the musical, and it will cast the character Anya via auditions. The production's official website will confirm details on the auditions later.
Viz Media is publishing the manga in English, and it describes the story:
Master spy Twilight is the best at what he does when it comes to going undercover on dangerous missions in the name of a better world. But when he receives the ultimate impossible assignment—get married and have a kid—he may finally be in over his head!
Not one to depend on others, Twilight has his work cut out for him procuring both a wife and a child for his mission to infiltrate an elite private school. What he doesn't know is that the wife he's chosen is an assassin and the child he's adopted is a telepath!
The anime adaptation of the manga premiered on April 9. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs and is also streaming an English dub.
The anime's fourth episode aired on Saturday with an accompanying main visual:
Kazuhiro Furuhashi (Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Rurouni Kenshin, Getbackers, 2019 Dororo) is directing the anime at Wit Studio and CloverWorks. Kazuaki Shimada (The Promised Neverland) is designing the characters, and [K]NoW_NAME (Fairy gone, Dorohedoro, Sakura Quest) is the music producer.
Shueisha is offering the manga in English on its MANGA Plus service on the same day chapters debut in Japan. Viz Media added the manga to its app as part of its Shonen Jump subscription in September 2019. The company is also publishing the manga in print.
