Spy x Family Star Details Series Creator's Help With Major Scene

Spy x Family took over screens around the world earlier this Spring with its official anime adaptation debut, and it turns out that the original creator behind the series actually played a director role when it came to bringing one of the pivotal scenes to life. Tatsuya Endo's original manga series was already massively popular among fans, but things exploded to a whole new level when the anime made its premiere this Spring. The series introduced a whole new wave of fans to the three unique members of the Forger Family, and fans can't wait to see what is coming for them next.  

Speaking during a special panel for Spy x Family at Anime Expo earlier this month (of which ComicBook.com was in attendance) the stars behind the anime series opened up about some of their most memorable moments during the production for the first half of the season. As Anya Forger voice actor Atsumi Tanezaki had surprisingly revealed to fans, series creator Tatsuya Endo was closely directing her on how to properly capture Anya's emotions during the initial interview to get into Eden Academy (and one of the saddest scenes in the series yet)

Tanezaki revealed that during the Eden Academy interview scene in which Anya cries during the fourth episode of the series, the actor explained that Tatsuya Endo actually came to the studio that day and she asked the creator for advice as to how properly convey Anya's emotions. Asking how much feeling she should be putting into saying Anya's tearful "Mama," the creator talked to her about the scene and helped it become the highly effective final product that fans see in the episode itself. But Tanezaki also credits the other stars for helping to cement the emotions of the scene overall as well

Spy x Family ended the first half of its debut season this Spring, but will be returning with more new episodes later this Fall. The series is currently streaming on Crunchyroll if you want to catch up and see what all of the buzz is about too. But how do you feel about Spy x Family's anime run so far?
