‘Spy x Family’ Episode 5: Release Date, Time, and How to Watch

Spy x Family Episode 4 left the fate of the Forgers in question after Anya’s admissions interview went awry, and Twilight will likely spend the anime’s next installment trying to salvage Operation Strix. If he can’t find a way to get Anya into Eden College, their familial facade will no longer be necessary. That’s an outcome none of the characters want. So, when will Spy x Family Episode 5 reveal how things play out?

Spy x Family Episode 4 sees the Forger family heading to Anya’s admissions interview at long last, and they almost make it out of Eden College without any problems.

Despite a muddy test from the educators — and a pack of wild animals wreaking havoc on the day’s affairs — Loid, Yor, and Anya manage to impress the housemasters at the prestigious school. Unfortunately, things come crashing down when one of them takes his personal life out on Anya.

Bitter over a divorce, Master Swan asks Anya an inappropriate question about her birth mother. It dredges up negative emotions that allude to a tragic backstory for the young telepath. And Twilight gets so angry over the whole thing, he tells the housemasters they’re no longer interested in the school.

Spy x Family Episode 5 will determine whether Anya gets into Eden College despite his sentiment. By the end of “The Prestigious School’s Interview,” the Forgers realize they messed up. However, two of Eden College’s housemasters also feel bad about the situation. Perhaps they’ll welcome Anya to their ranks regardless of how her interview ended.

For the Forgers’ sake, we certainly hope that’s what happens.

Watch the fifth installment when it drops on Crunchyroll and Hulu

Those waiting with bated breath for Spy x Family Episode 5 to arrive can catch it on either Crunchyroll or Hulu. The anime’s simulcast is part of Crunchyroll’s spring lineup, but it requires a subscription to access. The first three chapters were available as part of the streamer’s seasonal sampler. However, a Crunchyroll premium subscription is needed for anything after. Those begin at $7.99 per month.

Episode 5 is also available on Hulu, where subscriptions start at $6.99 per month with ads and $12.99 per month without them. Additionally, the platform offers annual memberships for those planning to stick with it long-term.

Wherever fans choose to watch the Forgers’ next adventure, they can count on more surprises moving forward. Hopefully, one of them entails Anya getting into school even after her admissions interview.

Spy x Family Episode 5 debuts on Saturday, May 7.
