Spy x Family's Japanese Voice Cast
Some anime fans have mastered being familiar with the Japanese voice actors, so there might be characters in the anime that sound familiar.
Here are the main Japanese voice actors in Spy x Family:
Eguchi Takuya as Loid Forger/Twilight
Eguchi Takuya voices Loid Forger or Twilight, the best spy of Westalis. He's known as the man with many disguises, but his current identity is Loid Forger, a psychiatrist.
Loid's mission is to get close to a specific political figure who only shows up at the events of his son's prestigious school. As a spy, Loid seems emotionless due to his practical side, but he actually cares for others.
Eguchi also voices Hikigaya Hachiman in My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax!, Kaido Shun in The Disastrous Life of Saiki K., and Akihiko Kaji in Given.Advertisement
Hayami Saori as Yor Forger
Hayami Saori plays Yor — a civil servant by day, the assassin Thorn Princess by night. Due to the reserved aspect of her personality, she's often the subject of bullying from her co-workers.
She accepts Loid's proposal so she can be less of a suspicious figure and continue her assassin duties. Yor is extremely protective and good at cleaning but terrible at cooking.
Hayami Saori as Yor might be a familiar voice since she's also Kochou Shinobu in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Jabami Yumeko in Kakegurui, and Nishimiya Shoko in A Silent Voice.
Tanezaki Atsumi as Anya Forger
Tanezaki Atsumi voices the adorable Anya, the precious child of the series. There's no doubt that she is one of the fan favorites, especially since she has the best expressions.
Not much yet is known about Anya's past, except she was once Test Subject 007 at the lab of an unknown organization. She's been fostered in and out of the orphanage, so having a family of her own makes her ecstatic.
Ironically enough, she's the only one who knows about everyone's secrets.
Tanezaki Atsumi is also Vivy in Vivy: Fluorite Eye's Song, Uotani Arisa in Fruits Basket, and Futaba Rio in Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai.
Ono Kensho as Yuri Briar
Ono Kensho is the voice actor of Yuri Briar, Yor's younger brother. Similar to his sister, he also works as a civil servant.
Yuri is protective of his sister and thinks that no man would be good enough for her. At the same time, Yor doesn't want Yuri to worry much about her, which is why she also needs the fake family.
Ono Kensho voices Akutagawa Ryuunosuke in Bungo Stray Dogs, Kuroko Tetsuya in Kuroko no Basket, and Floch Forster in Attack on Titan.Advertisement
Natsumi Fujiwara as Damian Desmond
The son of Loid's target Donovan Desmond, Anya tries everything she can to get on Damian's good side, not realising that he might already be interested in her!
Damian Desmon is played by Natsumi Fujiwara, who is most known for playing lead character Giorno in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind. More recently, she also played Rikka in 86.
Interestingly, Damian and his loyal sidekicks, Ewen and Emile, are all played by female VAs, a common feature for many child characters in animation.
Yoshino Hiroyuki as Franky Franklin
Yoshino Hiroyuki plays the role of Franky Franklin, Twilight's trusted informant. He usually doesn't hesitate to help Twilight out on missions when needed, as seen in the mess they got into in Episode 2.
At the same time, Franky and Twilight might as well consider each other friends. They have a special bond, especially due to Operation Strix.
Yoshino Hiyoruki also voices Yamada Hizashi (Present Mic) in My Hero Academia, Iwaizumi Hajime in Haikyuu!!, and Leone Favaro in Rage of Bahamut.
Emiri Katou as Becky Blackbell
Becky Blackbell is Anya's best friend at Eden Academy and a much-needed ally as she attempts to survive in the high-flying school!
Becky is played by Emiri Katou, a voice actor renowned for playing really cute characters – a perfect fit for anyone named Becky Blackbell! Katou's previous roles include Mayoi in the Monogatari series and Kyuubey, the cat-shaped familiar in Puella Magi Madoka Magica.Advertisement
Yuuko Kaida as Sylvia Sherwood
Sylvia is Loid's contact at WISE. Tall, cool and in command, it's not surprising she's become a fan favourite despite little time on screen!
Sylvia Sherwood is played by Yuuko Kaida, who some may recognise as the voice of Isabella in The Promised Neverland. She also played Tsukuyo in the Gintama series!
Yamaji Kazuhiro as Henry Henderson
Yamaji Kazuhiro is Henry Henderson, a very elegant teacher at Eden Academy.
Considering how Eden Academy is a prestigious educational institution, Henderson expects nothing but short of elegance for its future students.
During the interview process, he was taken aback by the elegance of the Forger family. At first, he doubted their attitude since Anya barely passed the written test. However, the Forgers proved to be truly elegant, earning the respect of Henderson.
For his other roles, Yamaji Kazuhiro plays Kenny Ackerman in Attack on Titan, Saiga Jouji in Psycho-Pass, and Bang in One Punch Man.
