One of the standout features of the promotional video is its musical score. The band Official HiGE DANdism, known for their extensive track record and prior hits, presents the song “Soulsoup”, immersing viewers in an atmosphere of intrigue and emotion.
It’s vital to note that, even though it shares its name with the manga, this film takes on an “original story” approach. This viewpoint offers a unique experience as it displays a storyline crafted by Tatsuya Endo’s genius but stands outside the canon established in the manga pages.
The original manga, first published in March 2019 on Shonen Jump Plus, a website from the publishing giant Shueisha, has seen a steady rise in popularity. And for fans yearning for even more related content, they can savor the anime’s second season, which is currently airing.
The production team behind this adaptation is undoubtedly among the industry’s most gifted:
- Kazuhiro Furuhashi: His extensive expertise spans titles like “Hunter x Hunter” and “Rurouni Kenshin”. Now, he takes on the dual role of directing the anime and overseeing the scriptwriting, ensuring the project’s faithfulness and quality.
- Kazuaki Shimada: With a keen eye for design, Shimada breathes life into the characters, leveraging his experience from past works like “Yakusoku no Neverland”.
- (K)NoW_NAME: Their talent in crafting enveloping musical atmospheres is evident, and their contribution to the soundtrack further enriches the “SPY x FAMILY” universe.
