Introducing the popular Japanese anime “Spice and Wolf”



On a journey, the young traveling merchant, Kraft Lawrence, finds a stowaway sleeping under the cover of his cart one night after leaving the village of Pasloe for business transactions. The stowaway is a girl with wolf ears and a tail, who introduces herself as Holo, the Wise Wolf of Yoitsu.

During her wanderings away from her far northern homeland of Yoitsu, Holo was a wolf that had taken up residence in the wheat of Pasloe village. Holo, who was called a god, had been contributing to the bountiful wheat harvest of the village for many years, but with the advancement of agricultural technology, she felt that she was being neglected and her homesickness intensified. Finally, on the day of the harvest festival, she escaped the village by jumping onto a bundle of wheat on a passing cart.

Lawrence, who learned that the girl is the incarnation of a wolf, took her as a companion on his journey. The two of them, while getting involved in various troubles during their travels, set out on a journey to Holo’s hometown.

Dreaming of setting up his own shop someday, he travels around various places with a small cart, procuring various items such as wheat and fur, and spends his days peddling in different villages and towns. Although he says that profit is his first priority, he has a soft spot for sentiment. On his journey, he often gets outsmarted by Holo, but he also enjoys their journey together.

The heroine of this work. She is the incarnation of a wolf that has been revered as a god of fertility in the village of Pasloe for hundreds of years. As times changed, she was neglected and harbored a strong desire to return to her homeland, so she snuck into Lawrence’s cart when he visited the village. She speaks in an old-fashioned tone and says things that test people. Her ears that can discern human lies and her glossy, fluffy tail are her pride.
