The ‘Spy X Family’ Wiki describes the synopsis as follows,
“‘Twilight’ is assigned possibly his hardest mission yet, Operation Strix. As part of this mission he needs to marry and have a child in order to get close to his target Donovan Desmond. He ends up adopting Anya, a telepath, and marrying Yor, an assassin, however, all of them are hiding their identities from one another.
To complete his mission, Twilight needs to get Anya enrolled in the prestigious Eden Academy so that she can get close to his target’s son, Damian Desmond. To do that, Anya will need to become an Imperial Scholar by earning 8 Stella Stars, but the real challenge for “Twilight” though is making sure she doesn’t get 8 Tonitrus Bolts and get expelled!”
The manga series has been adapted into an anime from the Japanese animation companies CloverWorks and Wit Studios. The English dub is available on the Crunchyroll streaming service.
