Spy x Family tells the story of a spy named Loid Forger, who needs to “build a family” to accomplish a mission called “Operation Strix”. In this mission where Loid has to have a family in order to infiltrate social gatherings organized by elites, he finds himself adopting a little girl and meeting a woman who agrees to be in a fake marriage with him, unaware that he has built a family with a little girl with the power to read minds and a wife who is secretly an assassin.
