Spy x Family gets ready to kick off Jump Festa 2022 with the release of new visuals for the upcoming anime.

Twitter user @AniNewsAndFacts uploaded four new promotional illustrations from the action-comedy manga's anime adaptation, which were released to promote the series' presentation at this year's Jump Festa. The pictures center around the Forger family-- Anya Forger, Loid Forger and Yor Forger-- the main characters of the series.

Spy x Family's upcoming adaptation will be a joint production created by animation studios Wit (Ranking of Kings, Vivy: Fluorite Eye's Song) and CloverWorks (Horimiya, The Promised Neverland). It will be directed by Kazuhiro Furuhashi, an experienced veteran with a respected history in the industry, having worked on projects such as Rurouni Kenshin and Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn.

The original Spy x Family manga is written and illustrated by Tatsuya Endo. It began serialization on Mar. 25, 2019, through Shueisha's online magazine, Shonen Jump +, where it continues to publish new chapters to this day. At the time of writing, a total of eight volumes compiling 53 chapters have been released. Fans and critics have praised Spy x Family for its engaging characters, well-delivered humor and entertaining story. The series has also sold over 12.5 million copies as of November 2021, with its sixth book ranking as the 27th best-selling manga volume of 2021.

Spy x Family is set on the backdrop of a brewing conflict between the fictional nations of Ostania and Westalis. Though there remains a tenuous truce between the two countries, dissidents on both sides seek to push the two powers into an all-out war. Enter Agent Twilight, a spy working for an organization whose aim is to keep the nations at peace. When a new mission requires that he craft a disguise as a normal family man, Twilight takes on the name of Loid Forger, and he adopts a girl named Anya, a psychic, and hastily marries a woman named Yor, who is secretly a famous assassin.

A presentation for the Spy x Family anime will be held on Jump Festa 2022's Super Stage this Dec. 18 at 9:00 am JST, where the voice actors of Anya Forger and Yor Forger will also be revealed.
