While the second season of the anime is airing, the manga written and illustrated by Tatsuya Endo – SPY x FAMILY continues to become more popular. Recently, the author paused progress mid-plot to offer a short chapter titled “Short Quest 11”.
Normally, these types of chapters usually tell short stories unrelated to the main plot and involve supporting characters from the series. However, the new short chapter will be a story with the participation of little girl Anya Forger. In the short chapter, Anya asks Loid to put a sign with her name on the door of her room, but she writes it “ANIA”.
Loid notices that the girl’s name was spelled wrong, so the sign is changed to “ANYA”, and the chapter ends with the girl thinking about her own name.
But that’s not all, author Tatsuya Endo has included a promotional image introducing the manga starring Anya Forger herself. The girl is holding a stuffed animal in her hand, the place she stands seems to be the door of the orphanage where Loid found Anya.
It was definitely a surprise for SPY x FAMILY fans, especially since it seemed like this chapter would aim to introduce a new storyline involving Anya Forger. So what’s going to happen to manga? Fans started debating about it and gave a lot of their own opinions.
– Prepare, the feeling of sadness is approaching.
– I don’t know how Loid and Yor will react when they discover the truth behind Anya.
– The girl’s eyes looked dull while writing ANIA, but they regained their color when she realized that she was now ANYA. I’m not ready for what’s to come, I’m sure Bond will also play an important role.
– Everyone should hold on to their seats and prepare for a tragic journey.
– Is ANIA what was written on her name tag when she was a test subject?
– My theory is that Anya’s code name in the lab is AN-1A and she thinks it’s ANIA.
– Loid and Yor have had their backgrounds explained, it’s clear that Anya has to be next.
And that seems to not be all, as the author Tatsuya Endo himself shared a special illustration through his official Twitter account that also features Anya Forger. In the past, SPY x FAMILY has started its main storylines with special illustrations like that. This also confirms that Anya Forger will be the main character.
It looks like we’re about to find out how Anya’s name was chosen and to explore this story, we’ll have to look into Anya’s past.
In Spy X Family, Anya is a 6-year-old girl with extremely strong telepathic abilities, reading the thoughts of other people and even animals. The strange thing is that Anya never revealed her ability, even intentionally hiding it. The manga also suggests that Anya was subjected to harsh scientific experiments that may have given her telepathic abilities.
Spy No matter how Anya’s ability was created, it is possible that the original purpose of those behind it is still a special “weapon” to fight enemies in this war.
She was also adopted many times from the orphanage but was then returned. Anya barely remembers her real family, but thoughts of that past bring her to tears.
Regardless of the origin of Anya’s powers, the Spy X Family plot is heading towards a rather dark and tragic story. And if all the fan theories are correct, it seems like the program that created Anya’s powers was somehow run by the Desmond family.
