Following their Japanese broadcast, episodes of Spy x Family will drop on Crunchyroll every Saturday. With new installments of The Rising of the Shield Hero and Kaguya-sama: Love Is War arriving on Wednesdays and Fridays, respectively, Spy x Family will finish the week strong.

As for what time fans can expect new episodes on the platform, Crunchyroll revealed they’ll arrive at 8:30 a.m. PST. Here’s what that translates to in other time zones:

  • CST: 10:30 a.m.
  • EST: 11:30 a.m.
  • GMT: 3:30 p.m.
  • CEST: 5:30 p.m.
  • AEST: 1:30 a.m.

Those hoping to access the weekly releases will need a premium Crunchyroll subscription to do so. However, Spy x Family is part of the company’s spring sampler. That means non-subscribers can enjoy the first three installments free with ads beginning a week after they premiere and running all the way up to May 31.

What to expect from the anime adaptation of Tatsuya Endo’s manga

So, what can viewers expect when the initial episodes of Spy x Family arrive? The anime promises to follow Tatsuya Endo’s manga closely, telling the tale of a spy who adopts a fake family. Little does he know his new wife and daughter have secrets of their own. According to the synopsis, he’ll wind up living with a telepath and an assassin:

“‘Twilight’ takes on the identity of psychiatrist Loid Forger and starts looking for family members. But Anya, the daughter he adopts, turns out to have the ability to read people’s minds, while his wife, Yor, is an assassin! With it being in each of their own interests to keep these facts hidden, they start living together while concealing their true identities from one another.”

That sounds like a recipe for disaster — or for an entertaining story. The tension alone is enough to warrant checking this series out. And viewers will finally be able to do so when it premieres on April 9.
