Spy X Family is a very complex but funny anime because of the laughable situations that we encounter every minute. The main reason that the anime does not take a serious turn is because of Anya. Anya is the character that brings the most humor to the anime. She reads people’s minds at inappropriate times and because of this, the story becomes funny. By knowing the whole story, some situations seem funnier in that context.
