What are the details related to production?
Tatsuya Endo and his editor Shohei Lin have known each other for over ten years. Lin was his first editor on Tista (2007). When Shohei Lin was moved from Jump Square to Shōnen Jump+, Endo followed him happily. They began developing new work. Spy Family takes parts from three of Endo’s one-shots. “Rengoku no Ashe” and “Ishi ni Usubeni, Tetsu ni Hoshi”. The reception among the editorial department was so good that serialization was practically decided before the official meeting even took place.
Lin had Endo work with Tatsuki Fujimoto on Fire Punch to get experience. Lin told Endo to make Spy x Family more cheerful than the other two books. The first draft was called “Spy Family” in Japanese. The author Endo came up with over 100 titles, but they decided to use the same name but in English and a “cross” between them because of a manga called Hunter × Hunter.
An editor said that he and the author of Rengoku no Ashe are always conscious of where violence is taken seriously. Anya was inspired by the main character from “Rengoku no Ashe.” Lin said that the series is written with a broad audience. The book is good for people of all ages and genders. It can be read by people who like comedy, too. Endo’s art style and ability to convey emotions are some of the reasons why we like it so much.
Lin said that he and Endo would start to make the stories in this book longer. They did this in Volume 2 and it was good.
