It is no secret to anyone that the Spy x Family anime has turned out to be this season’s biggest hit.
With a currently massive 9.09 rating on My Anime List, and fans of the show talking endlessly about it on forums all over the Internet, Spy x Family really has grabbed the attention of the otaku crowd. Me included.
And that’s because, along with the unusual story, fabulous art style, hilarious writing and superb voice actors, this show is a standout. Not only of this season, but in anime’s comedy genre overall.
To me, though, one of the things that makes Spy x Family so successful are the voice actors who took the three main roles of Loid, Anya and Yor Forger. As, without their superb comedic timing, the show would not be anywhere near as funny.
So, after looking at the voice actor who plays Anya Forger earlier in the week, today I am looking at the voice actor who voices Loid Forger in Spy x Family.
A voice actor with more than a decade of experience voicing anime characters, and one who may just have voiced one of your other favorites as well.
Who voices Loid Forger in Spy x Family?
The voice actor who voices Loid Forger in the new comedy anime Spy x Family is Takuya Eguchi (aka (江口 拓也, Eguchi Takuya).
