In honor of Japan's J.League's 30th anniversary, Spy x Family is joining the celebration and adding to the excitement. As reported by Crunchyroll, a fantastic array of new collectibles is on the way. These exclusive items include shirts, acrylic standees, towels, and buttons, all featuring the beloved members of the Forger family donning the colors and uniforms of 45 different teams from Japan's professional football league.

The announcement poster showcases the delightful transformation of the Forger family. Little Anya is seen proudly sporting Yokohama F. Marinos gear, Bond adopts the spirit of Kashima Antlers, Loid takes on the look of Kawasaki Frontale, and Yor embraces the passion of Sanfrecce Hiroshima. This fantastic crossover merges the worlds of Spy x Family and Japanese football, offering fans a unique and special way to celebrate both the manga series and the milestone anniversary of the J.League. Whether you are a manga enthusiast or a dedicated football follower, these collectibles are sure to bring joy and excitement to your collection.

Tatsuya Endo began publishing his ongoing Spy x Family series on Shueisha's Shōnen Jump+ website in March 2019. The manga's story follows the adventures of the Forgers, an eclectic found family made up of a young girl who can read minds, a Great Pyrenees with precognitive powers, a master spy and a deadly assassin. While the narrative has plenty of moments of intense combat and intrigue, it also features wholesome (and often) comedic interactions between the four leads. The skillful blend of action and comedy has greatly resonated with many across the globe; Spy x Family currently stands as one of the best-selling manga of all time with another 30 million copies in circulation worldwide.

Spy x Family Expands With Street Fighter 6 Partnership

Due to its immense success, Spy x Family has become a popular choice for merchandising and advertising collaborations, with companies eager to capitalize on its widespread appeal. One such example is the collaboration with CAPCOM, celebrating the launch of Street Fighter 6 and the premiere of the tie-in movie, Spy x Family Code: White. Additionally, Boss Coffee, Japan's leading canned coffee brewer, released a special line of caffeinated drinks inspired by the Forger family to mark Father's Day earlier this year.

Interestingly, this is not the first time the espionage-themed series has partnered with Japan's sports teams and events to create hype. In 2022, Anya took center stage as one of the central mascots in the promotional campaign for the table tennis World Championships, even donning her very own pink-and-blue table tennis uniform.

Spy x Family's influence doesn't stop at corporate collaborations; its fans also contribute to the excitement through their own content creation, particularly in the form of cosplay. Renowned cosplayer Yaya Han, for instance, presented a breathtaking interpretation of the Thorn Princess, Yor Forger's assassin alter ego. The carefully crafted outfit beautifully replicates the character's iconic black dress, accentuated with a rose choker and crown.

The widespread appeal and creativity inspired by Spy x Family not only contribute to its commercial success but also foster a vibrant and enthusiastic fan community eager to celebrate and engage with the series in diverse and imaginative ways.

MangaMonster distributes Spy x Family manga, and the Spy x Family anime adaptation is available on Crunchyroll.
