The latest episode showcases another episode filled with entertaining elements featuring Bond Forger and Loid Forger. Owning an intuitive dog who can look into the future is on everyone’s wishlist and watching Bond’s antics makes it even more endearing. Moreover, the way his mind works is rather fascinating and funny, which is often relatable to the audience.

Bond’s only wish was to eat good food but even that was not possible for him after forseeing the circumstances in the house. With Yor’s chaotic kitchen skills, he loses all hope to survive for even half a day. Since there was no other way, he finally turned to Loid Forger as his last and only hope for survival and helps him out in every mission.

However, Loid appreciates the dog’s help every step of the way. He thinks very highly of the dog and blindly trusts his instincts. Loid naturally thinks that Bond is an intelligent being. Although he knows that Bond was experimented on and might be smarter than any ordinary dog, he still puts all is trust in him to help him complete the mission.

The studio was able to preserve both the format and the caliber of the previous season. The fine character traits and fluid camera work set this apart from the competition. It’s also crucial to note how fantastic a job the voice performers did in bringing the characters to life and adding their own flair. Another element of the performance that heightens its excitement is the music.

Spy x Family Season 2 Episode 2 Review: Final Thoughts

From start to finish the episode remains extremely entertaining. It does not delve much into the core story of the anime and can be considered as one of the filler episodes of the series. However, it helps us know the newest family member better, the family Dog, Bond. Moreover, it also helps us understand Loid who thinks extremely highly of everyone around him, although he might be objectively the strongest one in the room.

Additionally, the anime might not be an ambitious project with a high production value, it maintains the quality to provide the audience with top-tier content.
