SPY x FAMILY: They ask for impossible requirements to play Anya Forger in the play

The popular manga written and illustrated by Tatsuya Endo, Spy x FAMILYinspiring an anime adaptation that is currently being broadcast, but it has also announced the adaptation of a stage play that will premiere in the season of the Spring-2023 (April-June). Of course, all the resolution is in the hands of the person in charge of that section, except for one role that will be heard: Anya Forger. However, it seems that the dream of many girls is now buried that the requirements have been announced.

In this context, the listening requirements for the role of Anya Forger have been highlighted in Japan. In addition to being able to attend rehearsals and performances during the specified period, the following conditions are recommended:

  • «Any age but between 70cm and 100cm in height (height limit is a guide only. Growth before and after application will be taken into account, so no problem if actual height is about 10cm difference) and must he’s good at acting, singing and dancing.».

Of course, the condition has generated some opinions, in particular “impossible to fulfill”Many think. Is there really any girl actress who meets the height requirement? An industry member said:

«In the original story and animation, Anya is considered four or five years old, depending on how she looks. However, because the minimum age to enroll in the prestigious school is six years old, for which it must be enrolled in order to fulfill its mission, it is also said to be under its age. The conditions of the application specify that the applicant can be of any age, but the high bar is likely to be set if the applicant meets the height requirement and can act and sing. According to Japanese statistics, the average height of a five-year-old girl is 110 cm. For example, singer Nonoka Murakata (3 years old) is about 90 cm tall, but can a girl of that age act and dance on stage for a long time?».

Comments on the comment include: «The range of children is still up to 90 cm»; «The conditions are so absurd that fans of the original manga are nothing but worries»; «Only Nono-chan, the youngest Japanese singer in history, measures those 90 cm»; «The average height is 70 cm in about 6 months to 1 year, but I wonder if they can find a baby actor with this».
