Tatsuya Endo announced on his official Twitter account on Aug 8, 2023, that the release date for Spy x Family chapter 87 has been delayed.
The delay is due to various reasons, including working on the tankobon (volume), which seemed to have taken a toll on the mangaka. As a result, chapter 87 is now scheduled to release on Sep 4, 2023, although the return date remains tentative.
“I apologize for the late notice, but Chapter 86 of “SPY×FAMILY” has been updated. I forgot to mention it earlier.
Also, I’m sorry, but due to working on the tankobon (volume) and other various tasks, I’m feeling a bit tired, so there will be a hiatus. The next update will be on September 4th, probably…,” Tatsuya Endo tweeted.
An illustration of Anya was also revealed by the mangaka along with the chapter delay announcement.
