With a demerit already on her record, Anya fights from the back to reclaim some of her glory while her parents watch from the sidelines in Spy x Family Episode 7. Let’s take a look at how things went in this review!
Spy x Family Episode 7 Overview
Spy x Family (short for SpyxFamily) is an action and comedy anime based on a manga by Tatsuya Endou that was serialised in Shounen Jump+. The manga quickly became one of the most popular ongoing properties in the magazine, making an anime adaptation inevitable. Studios Wit and CloverWorks are tackling the anime adaptation, and it would be an insult to your intelligence as anime fans to tell you which shows these two studios have produced. You are already aware of this.
Kazuhiro Furuhashi, who has previously worked as a director on shows like Dororo, HunterxHunter (1999), and Rurouni Kenshin, is directing the anime. SpyxFamily Episode 7 and Spy Family Episode 7 are alternate titles for this episode of the show.

Spy x Family Episode 7 Review- An Apology Gone Wrong
It’s easy to see why this show appeals to the generation that grew up with the internet. Who wouldn’t want to see a loving and supportive family do everything they can to ensure your success? Who doesn’t feel warm inside when they see the glory of the found family trope working? Who wouldn’t want to cheer for one of the cutest and most expressive child characters ever to appear on television?
The show’s magic, if you can call it that, is in the small details. Yor’s obsession with violence in contrast to her demeanour, Twilight’s dedication to doing everything exactly right and putting in as much effort as humanly possible for the sake of his mission, and Anya’s expressions that take the internet by storm every time a new one drops The show’s predictability is irrelevant if the things you can predict are executed so well that you enjoy yourself regardless? Are we too jaded to enjoy a lighthearted, entertaining show simply because some people have chosen to make it their entire identity?
The most recent episode was the ideal showcase for every positive aspect of the show that I mentioned earlier. Anya’s fear of facing what she did in the previous episode made perfect sense for her character and was a fun plot point to watch. Loid’s apparent struggle to be a proper father to Anya was also beautifully described in some well-written dialogue here, and you believe him when he says that becoming Anya’s parent has been just as difficult for a super spy as it would be for a normal person.
Eden’s school environment is rather dull. Apart from Damian and Becky, Anya isn’t a strong enough character to carry those kinds of scenes by herself right now, and the rest of the students are as insignificant as a bucket of sand in the desert. This means that Anya is overexposed every time she appears on screen. Things have also been deliberately slowed down, resulting in even less happening in a single episode.
Anya’s reaction shots and Loid’s efforts to get Anya to do one thing right made this a very entertaining episode. Anya can read people’s minds but can’t tell anyone about it, and Loid has no idea that Anya already knows everything that happens. Yor was also instrumental in reconciling Anya and Damian, as well as Anya and Loid. This would have been a perfect episode of the show if the school had been better realised and conceived.
Spy x Family Episode 7 was an excellent episode that gave each of our characters a chance to shine. Because it was mostly a nothing episode, the future doesn’t look too exciting, but it was still entertaining.
