Crunchyroll has confirmed the worldwide release timing for Spy x Family’s midseason finale, episode 12 “Penguin Park.”

The Spring broadcasting season has typically been relatively lacklustre in comparison to the 2022 Winter slate with Attack on Titan and Demon Slayer.

However, Kaguya-sama season 3 and Spy x Family stand out as two programmes that have notably rescued the day for millions of anime lovers worldwide.

Yesterday marked the end of Kaguya-sama, and today, June 24, it’s Spy x Family’s turn to complete its final assignment. The good news is that episode 12 of the CloverWorks x Wit Studio adaptation isn’t actually the season 1 finale; a second season is scheduled to air later this year.

We’re getting ahead of ourselves, though. When will Spy x Family episode 12 be available to stream globally on Crunchyroll?


The popular anime Spy x Family’s episode 12 is simply the midseason finale; the series will return with another 13 episodes in the Fall broadcast schedule.

The special “Extra Mission 1” manga chapter from July 2019 will be adapted for “Penguin Park,” the concluding episode from the Spring broadcast (season 1 part 1).

According to Crunchyroll, Spy x Family episode 12 will air at the following worldwide times:

8:30 AM Pacific Time
10:30 AM Central Time
11:10 AM Eastern Time
4:30 PM, British Time
5:30 PM, European Time
6:30 p.m. is turkey time.
9 PM, India Time
11:30 p.m. Philippine Time
1 AM, Australia Central Time


As most Spy x Family fans are already aware, the anime is presently the 12th highest-rated title of all time on MyAnimeList and is the highest-rated series from the 2022 Spring slate.

Spy x Family is without a doubt the best new anime since Jujutsu Kaisen season 1, despite the fact that some fans may think it belongs in the “Top 10” or even “Top 5.” We could discuss the humour, animation style, and world-building for hours, but the voice acting and tempo deserve special mention.

It was widely believed that the Forgers required the perfect actors to join them in order for the programme to live up to the potential of the manga series before the voice cast was revealed back in 2021.

Although Anya, Loid, and Yor are well-liked people, they also carry enormous strain because of their illustrious careers. Fortunately, the actors who played Anya, Yor, and Loid—Atsumi Tanezaki, Saori Hayami, and Takuya Eguchi—did a fantastic job of bringing these characters to life.

An issue I personally have with anime voice acting is that when performances aren’t up to par, it can seem as though the cast is reciting their lines in different rooms at different phases of production. If the cast can’t somehow establish a connection with the audience, that is, can a performance make you feel like you are in the room, even the best-written dialogue may come off as forced.

Fortunately, in Spy x Family, neither the performances of these three voice actors nor the majority of the supporting cast ever come off as hurried, forced, or out of character with the situation we are viewing. For the simple reason that their voice actors did such an amazing job of bringing them to life, Anya and Master Henderson in particular will undoubtedly be remembered by the community.

Terrible pacing may pull you out of an anime in a same way that poor voice acting does. Unfortunately, far too many recent episodes have had “scrolling breaks,” in which fans could sit and scroll around social media on their phones while only occasionally checking the anime, without missing anything crucial.

Throughout the 12-episode run of Spy x Family, there has never been a single scenario where I have taken up my phone or even glanced at a notification. Your whole attention is deserved and gained when Spy x Family is on.

The anime’s pacing is remarkably fluid, even between episodes. Every scenario seems significant for either the main plot or character development, whether you are following Loid’s Operation Strix, Yor’s familial issues, or Anya’s Eden College “ootings”.

It’s a positive indicator if an anime can keep your attention by episode 2. An anime is great if it can hold your interest for an entire episode at a time. It’s pure elegance if an anime can keep up that tempo for 12 weeks in a row.
