I’m very excited about what the next episode will be like, but since I know WIT Studios, they won’t disappoint me with their great work. Compared to early WIT episodes like Attack on Titan or Vinland Saga, it’s not as groundbreaking, but I’m still looking forward to hearing more about this German-inspired spy-world anime. – User janfrankowski, via EVIL.

another user added that “the whole plot is pretty amazing, the animation is really satisfying and high quality”, but gave the score a special shout out.

“I love how this ending theme is so relaxing and about small but precious moments that happen, but we often ignore the happiness in them due to everyday life like coming home holding hands, asking what to eat for dinner, talking to each other and laughing. Really a fit ending song for Spy x Family, thanks to Gen Hoshino. – User Axellender, via IMDB.
