Spy x Family, Volume 6: 10/31/22
Spy x Family, Volume 6 by Tatsuya Endo (2020) takes a break from some of the more intense plot threads of recent volumes. This one reprises some of the fun of Anya's dodgeball tournament in Volume Three (2020).
This time, though, the participants are adults: Loid Forger (Twilight) and Fiona Frost (Nightfall). Instead of it being dodgeball, the sport is tennis. But it's like no tennis game you or I have ever seen. Cheating is allowed. Mechanical aids are allowed. All of these things, though, are aimed at making sure the house wins.
Of course ultimately this tennis match is tied towards the political machinations between the two countries. How the game and the ultimate prize fit together reminds me of some classic Leverage plots. I'm not going to describe what the prize is or how they ultimately go about getting it. It's too fun to spoil.
