    Spice and Wolf


    Author: Isuna Hasekura
    Illustrator: Jū Ayakura






    Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Thriller, Drama.

    Baka-Tsuki was working on it for awhile. However, it was halted since it has been licensed in the US. Well, you can read until Volume Four here (http://www.wattpad.com/151337-spice-and-wolf-volume-1). There're no pictures though. It was translated by Baka-Tsuki and abandoned.

    There's also an anime (http://forums.narutofan.com/showthread.php?t=301196) and manga for it.

    Review (http://www.anime-planet.com/reviews/a461.html) link for the anime. Light Novels are rarely reviewed. It's more or less the same thing though, the filler for the anime isn't that bad either. Although the anime skipped a volume for Wolf and Spice.



    Spoiler: My take on Ōkami to Kōshinryō
    It's pretty interesting. The novel/anime/manga focuses more on the relationship between the two main characters, Horo and Lawrence. Don't expect much action, drama or whatever. It's a 'Love it or Hate it' kind of story. Well, there's economics, trading and a wolf-girl. I don't see what's there to hate :LOS. Well, the pacing does get much slower later in the anime/light novel. But it's starting to pick up.

    Baka-Tsuki's translations is good, but it doesn't really seem smooth reading the novel. Some parts don't really seem right to explain using baka-tsuki's translation. I'd recommend you to buy the Light Novel's official translation (http://www.amazon.com/Spice-Wolf-Vol-Isuna-Hasekura/dp/0759531048) tbh. Well, I wouldn't know. But since it's official, it'll probably be better I guess.


    I believe the Light Novel is ending soon.

    I was going to make this thread tomorrow, reps to you for making it before me.

    The next novel is the last though:( I like the maturity of the series when it comes to romance, Lawerence and Horo's conversation are full of wit and underlying tones. I also learned alot about mercantilism from the series:lmao

    Quite. I couldn't understand trading at all before I watched the anime. I simply recommended this so more people would know of the series.

    Not a clue. But from the pictures, it seems so. That's pretty cute. I just bought volume 1~5 in English and preordered Volume 6. 11 Volumes more to go..

    This is a sequel. The main protag is going to be Lawrence and Holo's daughter.

    Yes, she looks different from her previous official art.
