Spy x Family was given an official synopsis by Crunchyroll, with the story set against the backdrop of a fierce war between two nations: Ostania and Westalis. Twilight is the most talented spy from the Westalis Intelligence Services’ Eastern-Focused Division (WISE), and he’s sent to investigate the whereabouts of Donovan Desmond, the chairman of Ostania’s National Unity Party, the main force that keeps disrupting any chance of reconciliation between the two nations.
For acquiring intel on a mission, Twilight is given the task to form a family within a week. He takes the identity of psychiatrist Loid Forger, adopts a girl named Anya who can read minds, and a woman named Yor, who is unbeknownst to him, an assassin. The three keep their secrets hidden and start the mission, titled ‘Operation Strix.’
