    Still waiting for s3
    I envy you if you haven't seen this one before. I would love to be able to watch it for the first time again. Don't start here, though. Wait till they upload the first season. Who knows why they uploaded the second season first.

    This is an atmospheric, contemplative series. The pace might be a little slow at first for those who prefer action, but it's got some of that later on as well, and it ...

    A Magical Journey without Magic
    While I entitled this a magical journey there is very little magic in it other than finding animal spirits that have taken on human form and the magic of every day life that we often over look.

    The main character Lawrence is a traveling merchant and so the problems encountered have to do with the trials of Medieval trade and economics along with the difficulties of feudal society. These ...

    By far my most favorite anime.
    A must watch, I have watched this series so many times, and I am going to watch it again now, on CR.

    Not much of a review, as I am no good at writing them, but I wanted to give a quick 5 stars so I can help others find it's greatness.

    For me personally everything about this series is perfect. (Except the lack of continuation, R.I.P season 3)

    Best of the type. If there is a "type"
    First: Watch season 1 first... like all the other reviews here say. Reason? Makes the second one have a LOT more weight to it.

    Additionally:
    -While some moments are janky the show itself is solid from first to last episode with little to no filler. High quality. Also if the reviews seem scant on any real detail, its largely because you can't say much about the show without giving something ...

    someone give my amnesia so i can watch it again for the first time.
    I wish season 1 was on here when I came across this so I didn't have to hunt it down elsewhere but even so I'm glad I did. I was instantly hooked through the first episode and would of binged the whole 2 seasons if real life would of let me.

    The simplicity of this anime with the atmosphere and story that come with it really left me craving more. Since there doesn't seem to be a s3 happening, ...

    A medieval world bigger than the characters in it
    The story setting for Spice and Wolf follows a familiar template to other "traveler anime" like Kino's Journey or Mushishi, where each town our main characters arrive at has its own cultural twists and a new story arc.

    What sets it apart from these shows is S&W's loyalty to exploring the same, big world from different geographic perspectives. Guilds, governments, churches, and currency ...

    Beautiful, fun, romantic, sexy, witty
    Amazing show. Holo is basically the only waifu you'd ever need. Cleverness and surprise, comedy and drama, this show has it all. The relationship dynamic between Holo and the MC is pretty typical of most anime, but the way he realizes he NEEDS her later on, really makes the show worth sticking with. She's just as crafty, if not more so than the MC. The MC is a wandering trader, to which Holo's ...

  • Unique, completely worth it.
    Medieval like ambient, a wandering merchant (Lawrence) just doing his job for a living. Until he stumbles onto a stubborn yet wise wolf...

    The start might be slow paced, then it catches up in the third chapter. Still have to see an anime that is like this one. The opening from both seasons are lovely (and completely recommend listening to the full versions of both), and the only time I've seen ...

  • fantasy adventure with creative storytelling and drama
    Spice and Wolf is a one of a kind anime, I really have never seen another show quite like it. To put it simply, it is a story about a traveling merchant and a wolf goddess (disguising as a human), two very different personalities, as they travel together and make business various deals to grow his business. As they progress on their adventure, and the stakes of each deal become bigger and bigger, ...

  • classic math anime fun
    Now a days there are quite a few shows that has a emphasis on economic but when this came out it was one the first and i think one of the best. This is a short story that not really done' It has two season but the arc did not really end. Another thing is that there was so much more to explore speaking from the manga. If you have time sit down and watch it it is a must watch.
