Well, it looks like the Spy x Family anime is popular enough to now get an English dub from Crunchyroll, and so quickly too. Clearly, Tatsuya Endo, Wit Studio, and CloverWorks must be doing something right with this anime.

The Forger Family: Now in English

"Spy x Family" key visual.
Believe me, Anya is just as surprised as we are.

Crunchyroll is proud to announce the English voice cast for the main characters of Spy x Family: the Forger family. That means that we’ll finally get to hear what Loid, Yor, and Anya sound like in English. To start with though: Cris George (Black Clover) is the ADR director for this English dub. The voice actors for the Forger family are as follows:

  • Alex Organ (Fairy Tail) – English voice of Loid Forger aka Agent Twilight
  • Natalie Van Sistine (Attack on Titan) – English voice of Yor Forger
  • Megan Shipman (Akebi’s Sailor Uniform) – English voice of Anya Forger

As for when this English dub version of Spy x Family will premiere, that’s going to be very soon. Specifically: Saturday, April 16, 2022. That’s only 5 days away at the time of this writing, so you won’t have long to wait before you get to hear the Forger family speaking English exclusively on Crunchyroll. In fact, Crunchyroll is inviting everyone to a special watch part of Ep. 1 of the English dub on Twitch on Friday, April 15 at 1:00 pm PT.

Actually, though, it’s not just the English dub of Spy x Family that will premiere on that date. The French and German dubs will also premiere on April 16, 2022; so if you speak those languages, this will be a happy day for you. If you speak Latin American Spanish or Brazilian Portuguese though, you’re going to have to wait until April 23, 2022, before those dubs will air. We don’t know why they’re arriving later than the others. I guess it’s just something we’ll have to put up with.

Spy x Family: Details

Pretending to be smart is easy when you’re telepathic.

Spy x Family is an anime based on the manga of the same name by Tatsuya Endo. This anime is the story of the somewhat fake Forger family consisting of Loid (a spy for not-West Germany), Yor (an assassin for not-East Germany), and Anya (a clueless telepath who’s too young to comprehend the events around her) living together, and somehow becoming a real family in the process. Even in spite of the secret identities, they keep from each other. The official synopsis from Crunchyroll gives us more details:

“Everyone has a part of themselves they cannot show to anyone else.

At a time when all nations of the world were involved in a fierce war of information happening behind closed doors, Ostania and Westalis had been in a state of cold war against one another for decades.

The Westalis Intelligence Services’ Eastern-Focused Division (WISE) sends their most talented spy, “Twilight,” on a top-secret mission to investigate the movements of Donovan Desmond, the chairman of Ostania’s National Unity Party, who is threatening peace efforts between the two nations.

This mission is known as “Operation Strix.”

It consists of “putting together a family in one week in order to infiltrate social gatherings organized by the elite school that Desmond’s son attends.”

“Twilight” takes on the identity of psychiatrist Loid Forger and starts looking for family members. But Anya, the daughter he adopts, turns out to have the ability to read people’s minds, while his wife, Yor, is an assassin! With it being in each of their own interests to keep these facts hidden, they start living together while concealing their true identities from one another.

World peace is now in the hands of this brand-new family as they embark on an adventure full of surprises.”
