The official website of Spy x Family anime unveiled two more original characters for the upcoming ‘SPY x FAMILY CODE: White’ anime film on Sep 22, 2023.
The newly announced characters and their cast members include:
- Banjo Ginga as Snyder, who aims to overturn the peace between the East and West.
Banjo Ginga’s comment regarding his role:
To all the fans of Anya, I must sincerely apologize for my recent behavior in my role. I never expected to play such an unpopular character. To treat such a young girl like that… I am deeply ashamed. I can hardly bear the guilt, and every night I cleanse my body and soul with sacred sake, repenting for my sins. Oh, is that a hallucination? I can’t possibly be another person. Anyway, when you go to the theater, please forgive my past wicked deeds and have a generous heart towards me.
P.S. This work will definitely be a hit. This one-of-a-kind Snyder with a keen sense of smell assures you. There is no doubt about it.
- Shunsuke Takeuchi as Type F, the secret weapon of the military intelligence led by Snyder.
I was originally a fan of the source material, so I felt extremely honored to participate. Type F has a cool atmosphere, but it fights in a spectacular way!! It’s definitely a fighting style that any boy would admire. During the dubbing, Hayami-san said, “I’m glad we could record together,” and just hearing those words made me feel that it was worth participating. This is a work that will undoubtedly brighten up your enjoyable Christmas time! Please be sure to watch it in theaters.
SPY x FAMILY CODE: White will release on Dec 22, 2023. The movie will be an anime original, with Ichiro Okouchi working on the script.
