About Spy X Family
The manga of the series has been doing ever since it started serialization. However, it took six years for the series to be adapted into anime. The sole reason for the anime to be adapted late was because there was not enough content until the manga had over 30 or 40 chapters. We can consider Covid-19 as well a reason for late anime adaptation. However, on November 1, 2022, a website was made for the announcement of the Spy X Family anime.
