During his panel at Anime NYC, the president of White Studio and executive producer George Wada revealed that twenty animation studios were vying for the right to adapt Spy x Family. But as we now know, it was to his studio and to CloverWorks that the manga was entrusted.
A war like no other
The highest compliment a studio can receive is being faithful to the source material. Regarding the modification of Spy x Family, we can say that it exceeds our expectations. Tatsuya Endo’s manga adaptation was so coveted that twenty studios were ready to make it.
But in the end it was two studios that shared the work: Wit Studio and CloverWorks. The two studios developed a joint production for this project to avoid late delivery. In particular, Wada confided that Wit Studio handled most of the action sequences, due to his experience in the first three seasons of Attack on Titan.
Some information about the two studios
Usually one animation studio outgrows the other. Such is the case with Wit Studio and CloverWorks. For example, Wit Studio was created by former Production IG employees, including George Wada and Tetsuya Nakatake. Since 2012, the studio has distinguished itself by producing the three seasons of Attack on Titan (which earned several positive reviews), The Ancient Magus’ Bride, Vinland Saga and Ranking of Kings. Each of these anime is a success in itself.
As for the CloverWorks studio, it was first called Kōenji studio and belonged to A-1 Pictures. But later it got the name and identity of CloverWorks. 1uh In October 2018, it was completely separated from A-1 Pictures. Some of his best edits include the first season of The Promised Neverland, My Dress-Up Darling, and Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai. Darling in the Franxx and Wonder Egg Priority are two of his original productions.
A family to keep peace and balance between two rival nations
Spy x Family is a manga created by Tatsuya Endo. The Wise Agency entrusts the Twilight spy with Operation Strix. The latter aims to stabilize the peace between Westalis and Ostania. For this he has to get closer to a senior politician Desmond. Unfortunately, the politician is always on guard. The only way to achieve it without arousing suspicion is to join a friend from Eden’s elite school. Twilight has no choice but to invent a family and integrate her child into it. He adopts Anya and arranges a marriage of convenience with Yor. All three form the Forger family. But in reality, each member of this unusual family is hiding a secret.
Although we are only at the second part of Season 1, the anime is very much followed. His tone is full of humor and action. If he is so successful, it is mainly because of Anya. Cute, but queen of blunders and pranks, Anya quickly became the anime’s most beloved character. According to Wada, she would have a resemblance to Baby Yoda.
