Episode 7 of Spy x Family's anime, titled "The Target's Second Son," showed Anya's rough beginnings at school. However, during the episode, it looked like he was in denial of something as well — does Damian like Anya?

For the uninitiated, Spy x Family follows Twilight, a secret agent who has to create a fake family for his current mission.

Under the alias Loid Forger, he forms the Forger family. However, he's not the only one with secrets — his wife, Yor, is an assassin, while his daughter, Anya, is a telepath.

In the beginning, Damian can be perceived as an arrogant child, probably brought about by his social status and upbringing. He thought Anya had a crush on him after he caught her simply staring at him.

After Anya's infamous "heh" moment, Damian gets angry with her after he feels offended by her expression. Furthermore, Damian's feelings regarding Anya become blurred after she punched him.

When Anya apologizes to Damian with tears in her eyes, it was like a switch flipped inside Damian. It turns out his feelings of being nervous around Anya were because he developed a crush on her.

In his monologue right after Anya's apology, a part of him already knew that he seemed to have feelings for her. However, he just didn't want to admit it.

After that moment, the episode also shows a slightly different animation style of Anya from Damian's point of view. In that style, Anya's eyes are rounder than usual, brighter, and sparkly.
