I had the opportunity to catch an early screening of Spy x Family Code: White. So let’s run it back. 

After receiving a new mission assignment, Twilight’s time as Loid Forger is over. In a last-ditch attempt to salvage Operation Strix, he sets his sights on Anya’s upcoming cooking competition at Eden Academy.  Thinking securing a Stella might make all the difference, The Forgers go on a Family Vacation in search of a special dish to keep them together.

I want to start by saying. I love Spy x Family and Code: White doesn’t disappoint. It has all the style and flair of the anime (I assume the manga) and then some. The Voice work from the English cast was solid. I watched the anime in Japanese with English subtitles.  Given the choice, I’m always gonna pick subbed over dubbed but the English cast did their thing. Either way, you shake it, you’re gonna have a dope time. With some quality voice work. They did that! 

This was a joint project between Wit Studio, CloverWorks (the same team behind the anime), and Toho Animation. North American distribution is through Crunchyroll. Runtime is approximately 1 hour 50 minutes. Screenplay written by Ichiro Ohkouchi. 

The best thing about this movie is…Anya.   Loved the cameo’s with Bond. And any fight scene with Yor is gon’ be fire! Loid is just that guy! He gets the girlies screaming. This movie was hilarious from start to finish. However, there were a few moments where things were supposed to be serious and some Anya banter was slid in and cut down the intensity. I ain’t really like that but I can understand. Kids don’t always read the room well. They might mouth off when they really shouldn’t. 

Spy x Family Code: White Ramblings

The Big Bad was vile as hell.  Expeditiously, cementing himself as a pretty shitty guy and keep getting more shittier. I don’t know about you but I like for the enemy to… well be my enemy.  He didn’t get a redemption arc or backstory to make it more human. He was just the opps. That’s the type of shit that I like!

The animation was gorgeous. The music was solid. (K)now_Name delivered the right track for every occasion. Aside from Anya, gagging it up at the wrong moments. I don’t have any other complaints. 

But something that I really can’t wrap my head around. How Loid and Yor aren’t suspicious of each other in the slightest? Are they ignoring it for the sake of maintaining their cover (plot armor) or are they just that stupid?  

Yor pops up places that she just shouldn’t be.  She comes around there just random bodies around. But somehow he doesn’t bat an eye. Make it make sense. As for Loid, he goes to the same places that Yor shouldn’t be and infiltrates places she fought her way through. Maintaining the cover by keeping Loid happy is crucial but it’s getting a little out of hand. I can suspend belief like everyone else but I can’t be the only one thrown off by this.  Chime in and let me know.
