Spy x Family episode 7 – Twilight is really lucky in choosing Anya, her ingenuity makes the relationship with Damian and Becky good.
Twilight really needs to give Anya some space. While it’s exciting to see all these far-fetched ways to urge Anya to apologize, tracking her down goes a bit too far in episode 7 Spy x Family. When it comes to relationships, pushing too hard can backfire. Twilight is great at being what people want, but in terms of relationships and how individuals work emotionally, he still has a lot to learn.
Though Twilight remains the stereotype of an intelligent character who knows too much but turns out to be too little. I think it’s because of his hilarious reactions and the silly situations he gets himself into.
I was looking forward to the Damian and Anya scene being adapted, it’s the most stereotypical rom-com possible. It was clear that Damian was in the throes of his first love but was too young to understand it. I expected Anya to react to the boy’s thoughts for once so that Damian would realize the nature of his feelings. I have to laugh at Twilight’s reaction – he obviously hasn’t seen enough romantic comedies to know that his “Plan B” is performing much better than expected.
Twilight was really lucky in choosing Anya – her mind-reading skills aside, her ingenuity made her relationship with Damian and Becky a good one. If Anya was a good girl, I don’t think she would attract Damian or Becky’s attention as much as she does now. Becky adds an even more perfect complement, acting as a blocking buddy between Damian and Anya.
I love the growing openness between Yor and Loid in episode 7 Spy x Family. Yor’s understanding of children helps Loid gradually get rid of the “get the job done” mentality. If it was just Loid and Anya, he might have pushed her to the brink of despair. Learning aside, I find it hilarious that all the textbooks have the word “yoiko” (good child) in their title.
The sheer difficulty of raising a child is driving Loid and Yor into a closer partnership. It makes their family start to feel more real to some extent. I wonder how tight those ties can really become given the big secrets they’re keeping. The question is when will they begin to show a deeper interest in each other and wonder what those secrets are.
I find it interesting that the first glimpse we get of Yor’s little brother is through her memory. Older siblings always tend to consider their youngest as the baby in the family. I think it’s appropriate to introduce her brother to us as the child in her memory, as she sees him.
Loid’s experiences remind me of the experiences I’ve observed with the parents around me. His desire for Anya to have a smooth academic life is what many good parents wish for their children (although Twilight’s reasons are more selfish, for the sake of duty than for her own happiness. Anya).
Loid’s realization that nothing goes as planned when it comes to having children is one I’m sure of, about how quickly kids can shatter all ideals of an idyllic family life. The scene that ends with Loid putting the sleeping Anya to bed is an absolutely precious one. Because children need so much tender attention, you pour so much heart into them and that changes who you are. I was able to see it with Loid, where in moments of chatting with Yor about their family, his eyes widened in surprise and he looked more like a young man than a hardened spy. .
I find Yor a more relatable, relatable character than Twilight because of the way she struggles with her own insecurities. As Mrs. Forger, struggling with imposter syndrome, feeling that she was not allowed to have a say in Anya’s upbringing because she wasn’t Anya’s biological mother, that she didn’t really belong in the Forger family. Irony adds layers of depth to this. It’s also ironic that she feels out of place as Anya’s adoptive mother since Loid isn’t Anya’s biological father either, but of course she doesn’t know it right now.
The way Yor still calls Anya, Anya-san shows the distance between them and her apology for speaking out about Anya to Loid also shows that she feels like an imposter in the Forger family. It’s ironic that the entire Forger family is all impostors to carry out a spy mission.
