Spy x Family, Volume 5: 09/15/22

Heartstopper: Volume Two

Spy x Family, Volume 5 by Tatsuya Endo is the aftermath of the averted terrorist attack. Bond is now part of the Forger family but there are forces trying to bring an end to Loid and Yor's marriage.

On the school front, Anya has finals coming up. It happens during the New Moon, meaning she won't have her mind reading powers. That means she has to study. But the subjects are advanced and she's so much younger than her classmates.

Yor brings in her brother to tutor Anya. That meant sitting through more of his annoying jealousy. At least he wasn't there in an official capacity.

Finally, a new character is introduced. Loid has a coworker who is a secret admirer. She wants Yor out of the way so she can have Loid to herself. I know these sorts of plots are typical to slow burn romances, especially the comedic ones, but I just want to watch the two adults slowly fall for each other without interference.

I have volume 6 on hand and will be reading it soon.

Five stars
