Spy x Family gave the Forgers a chance to relax in episode 5, but the anime will bring them back to business in its next installment. Now that Anya’s been accepted into Eden College, the real work of Operation Strix begins. Her first day of school could prove an important part of Twilight’s mission. And it looks like Yor will face some trouble in Spy x Family Episode 6 as well. So, when does it come out and how can fans tune in?

The Forgers take a moment to celebrate in ‘Spy x Family’ Episode 5

Spy x Family Episode 5 reveals that Anya got into Eden College early on — on a technicality, but that doesn’t matter when it comes to Operation Strix. Twilight’s elated that he won’t have to return to the drawing board. And the Forgers celebrate Anya’s big accomplishment with their most comical “mission” yet.

At Anya and Franky’s prompting, they rent a castle and theme park so that Anya can play a game of espionage. The girl is a huge fan of Spy Wars, and she makes her family act out one of Bondman’s missions. Of course, this time, it’s “Loidman” playing the hero. He’s tasked with saving Princess Anya from Franky, the other spies from his organization, and even a very drunk Yor.

Beyond the beginning of the episode, “Will They Pass or Will They Fail?” could definitely be considered filler — though it’s entertaining regardless. Still, those wondering when we’ll get back to Operation Strix may be looking for Spy x Family Episode 6. When does it come out?
