Spy x Family Creator Highlights Anya in Special Holiday Art

We are fully in the holiday season, so it should come as no surprise to see some anime creators sharing art of their characters celebrating the holidays in turn. With Spy x Family recently revealing at this year's Jump Festa that both a second season and feature-length film are confirmed for the Forgers' future, creator Tatsuya Endo has decided to put Anya Forger into the holiday spirit via new holiday artwork. With one episode left in Spy x Family's tank before the first season ends, the Forgers will be missed, but will return.

It should come as no surprise to see Anya rising the ranks to become one of the most popular characters of the series, with the young telepath learning her family's secrets while simultaneously acting as the main source of hilarity amongst the espionage and assassination missions taking place. With Yor, aka Twilight, attempting to stop two warring nations from destroying the world while his faux-wife Yor, the master assassin known as the Thorn Princess, hides her true identity, Anya is smack-dab in the middle. Luckily, the second cours of season one gave the young mind-reader back up as the Forgers adopted the shaggy pooch known as Bond, who also harbors the ability to see into the future.

Tatsuya Endo shared the newest sketch featuring Anya Forger and a Santa-clad feline via his Official Twitter Account, getting the comedic relief to celebrate the holidays following the big announcement that both a second season and a feature-length film were in Spy x Family's future:

Spy x Family's first season will have twenty-five episodes in total, meaning that the next will be its last, following a dynamic tennis tournament that saw Loid attempting to win in order to gain some serious intel needed for his mission. Luckily, both the second season and the upcoming movie will have plenty of material to pull from as the mangaka responsible for the Forger Clan is continuing to release new chapters of the manga at a steady clip. 

The series from Wit and CloverWorks remains one of the biggest new anime series of this year, so it should come as no surprise to see that Spy x Family has a bright future ahead of it.
