The fourth episode of Spy x Family had a lot of awesome new things for fans to talk about. For instance, viewers were delighted when Yor and Loid Forger stood up for their daughter Anya when the child ended up in tears during the formal interview. However, Episode 4 also had a cool connection to Attack on Titan that anime fans were quick to notice.

In Spy x Family Episode 4, fans were introduced to Henry Henderson, the stern housemaster of Eden Academy's Dormitory 3 and a firm believer that the school should only accept families that exude elegance. His belief is so strong that "ELEGANCE!" is his most memorable cry. Not surprisingly, Henderson has become an instant fan favorite after his debut.

It's not a surprise that fans are loving Henderson because of his booming voice and it's easy to understand. After all, he's played by Kazuhiro Yamaji who made a mark by playing Kenny Ackerman in Attack on Titan.

Kenny was a member of the Military Police Brigade's First Interior Squad and the captain of the Anti-Personnel Control Squad. He worked for the crown after meeting Uri Reiss and had wanted to take the Reiss family's "god-like power" for himself. Yamaji also played Kenny perfectly with the booming "BANG! BANG!" cry.

We're loving the idea of Yamaji being a part of Spy x Family and we're looking forward to more of Henderson in the future episodes.

Spy x Family Episode 4 concluded with the Forgers worrying about passing the interview. But will Anya actually be accepted to Eden Academy? That's something we will finally learn when the next episode premieres this Saturday.


Spy x Family Episode 5 is titled Will They Pass or Fail ("Gohi no Yukue") and is based on the manga's Chapter 6 (the fourth episode adapted the fourth and fifth chapter). The new episode will air on Saturday, May 7, 2022.
