Spy X Family Episode 35 Recap!!
The new episode covers some of the adventures of the Forgers together as a family on the cruise. Yor’s director permitted her to spend the last day on the cruise with her family.
They all enjoy their time together by participating in multiple activities. Watching Anya have fun makes Yor realize that this is the main reason she does this job, to protect her family’s and world’s peace. They also go swimming and surfing. While surfing, Yor accidentally pushes Anya’s surfboard with all of her strength, and right when Anya is about to fall into the water Loid catches her.
At the end of the day, Yor and Anya both get way too tired. Yor falls asleep and rests her head on Loid’s shoulder while Anya tells Loid that she is also sleepy. Loid has to carry both Anya and Yor back. They go back home and bring gifts for everyone.
While entering her school, Anya thinks that she is going to tell everyone that she went on the premium luxury cruise and that everyone will fangirl over that. But, no one pays attention to her because it is not a big deal for them. Rather, they all gather around Becky who had met Starlet Rachel during her vacation.
Anya’s ego gets hurt and she starts spouting lies to everyone about the cruise but no one believes her since the lies are too obvious. Later, Yuri is over at their house and Anya tells Yor, Loid, and Yuri about what happened and they all tell her that ”lying is bad and all liars are trash” which is pretty hypocritical. They all try to maintain a poker face after this.
