10 Anime Like Spy x Family You Should Watch – Breeding Vultures | Wonder Mind Kids

It’s hard to find the perfect balance of drama, comedy, and romance in an anime, but several anime fans have found their perfect mix Spy x family. This collaboration between Studio Wit and CloverWorks captured the hearts of the world. Aside from two well-known studios working on the anime, the show also has an interesting premise that brings together a spy, an assassin, and a young telepath under one roof.

Even with Part 2 airing at the time of writing, the episodes aren’t coming fast enough for fans wanting to see the shenanigans this fake family gets into. To fill the void while you wait for new episodes, here are ten equally fascinating and fun anime like Spy x Family that anyone can get started with.

Anime like Spy x Family

1. Kotaro lives alone

Kotaro lives alone

Kotaro may not have the ability to read minds, but he has everyone in his apartment building ready to take care of him at any time. Anya was quite lucky that Loid was there to adopt her, but Kotaro wasn’t so lucky. Kotaro had to “grow up” and take care of himself early on.

This anime is heartbreaking, but it goes hand in hand with great heartfelt moments and lots of laughs as the tenants of the apartment complex learn how to be “family” to their newest neighbor. Kotaro Lives Alone is an excellent choice for viewers looking for a show that showcases what it means to be a family.

2. Kaguya-sama: Love is war

While Kaguya-Sama: Love is War may not have the family aspect in the game, it does have other themes similar to Spy x Family. Both anime also look at the developing romance between the two couples. In Kaguya-Sama Love is War, the couple has yet to confess to each other, although the school is already adamant they are a couple.

Miyuki Shirogane and Kaguya Shinomiya are obviously in love with each other, but it seems neither of them are ready to admit it. So love is actually a war in this anime as viewers have to watch as these two characters dance around each other until one of them finally admits that they love the other.

3. Cutie & Flash

Everyone falls in love with Spy x Family when they see Loid trying to be a good father to Anya. While he says it’s for the good of the mission, it’s as clear as day that he actually cares about Anya’s well-being. In Sweetness & Lightning we see the same effort Kohei Inuzuka puts into raising his daughter Tsumugi Inuzuka.

Life is tough, especially after Kohei’s wife died. The father-daughter couple cannot even prepare a proper and nutritious meal for themselves. To ensure his daughter eats healthily, he learns how to cook meals at a family restaurant.

4. My Neighbor Totoro

This anime isn’t a series, but it’s still an amazing work to watch if you fell in love with Anya’s cuteness. Hayao Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro follows two young sisters, Satsuki and Mei Kusakabe, who move to the countryside to be closer to their ailing mother.

The kids didn’t expect their new home to be the usual stopover of a forest spirit, one of the kids named Totoro. The children and Totoro have many fun adventures in this classic film.

5. My Hero Academy

Could it be that Anya is actually a Quirk user? Fans of My Hero Academia would know that the hit series is about a superhero society where almost everyone in the world has a “quirk” or superpower. Well that sounds like a fun world for Anya as she would fit right in with the cast.

While My Hero Academia features many teenagers as main characters, the show also has many heavy Quirk users who are children. One of the most notable kids with a quirk is a young girl named Eri who is just as cute as Anya.

The show has more action than Spy x Family, but it has many heartwarming scenes between the characters, including many significant scenes with Eri.

6. Bungou Stray Dogs

Bungou Stray Dogs is another anime like Spy x Family that focuses on characters with unique supernatural abilities. Some of these ability users formed a group called the Armed Detective Agency to protect the city of Yokohama from various threats, especially other ability users.

If you ignore that the group is made up of skills that humans use, you would think Loid’s spy work is similar. In Spy x Family, the land dispatches Loid to prevent war from breaking out between Ostania and Westalis.

March 7th comes in like a lion

Loid is a brilliant spy, but as a father and husband he’s still learning the basics, and none of his espionage missions could ever prepare him for the identity he embraces today. Sometimes people learn how to be a real family from people who are not related by blood.

March Comes in Like A Lion follows the story of Rei Kiriyama who finally feels the warmth of a family of people not even related to him. With the Kawamoto family, he learns how important relationships with other people are.

8. Not not Biyori

For viewers after the feel-good vibes that Spy x Family exudes, a chilled-out anime show like Non Non Biyori is just perfect. The show follows the everyday activities of four girls living in the countryside.

The anime transforms the simple everyday country life into something beautiful and deep. Viewers will love all of the characters as they are good-natured friends who always try to encourage each other.

9. Natsume’s Book of Friends

One can only imagine Anya’s strain keeping her skills away from her family. Takashi Natsume is also facing the same problems Anya is going through. Natsume has been moved from one relative to another because his family thinks he is a liar and weird.

Now in his new home with a family who seem genuinely concerned about him, he tries his best to hide the fact that he can see Ayakashi from them. However, it proves difficult as the ghosts always seem to be after him. If you’re looking for an anime like Spy x Family with a supernatural twist, look no further.

10. Kakushigoto: My father’s secret ambition

Similar to Spy x Family, the highlight of this anime is the relationship between father and daughter. Kakushi Goto tries to keep his real job a secret from his daughter because he feels his daughter might grow up to tease him if she finds out the nature of his job.

Loid, on the other hand, keeps his true identity a secret from Anya for the success of his mission. If you find joy in Loid’s attempts to keep his secrets from the ever-curious Anya, then you’ll enjoy the lengths Kakushi goes to to keep his job a secret.
