Spy x Family Chapter 77 Spoilers: Everybody Wants to be Tough Like Anya Forger
Anya Forger has been awarded her latest Stella star, and she’s the flavor of the month. Her classmates think she is the coolest, wishing to emulate her plucky spirit. Loid wants to protect her from any trauma that may have occurred from the incident. Yor wants to keep her fed. Damian, however, doesn’t take well to this surging popularity.
However, Damian starts to see points in common with Anya. Their mothers both willingly cook for them, a trait seen by their peers as “peasant-like” despite it being hearty and thoughtful. He wishes to be strong like Anya, too but resents how she handles herself and calls her out for it. Anya, knowing of Damian’s mother and her disconcerting traits and worries that he feels unloved by his family.
There’s a possible bond forming, but it’s too brief a chapter to tell if it’ll stick. Even after Damian apologizes to Anya, their playful, childlike interactions leave plenty of ambiguity as to whether they’ll develop a more meaningful friendship. The chapter doesn’t contain the same levels of excitement as other chapters but is a good breather before starting the next arc, whatever that might look like.
