- Personal Thoughts:
Spice and Wolf is one of the most darling anime's I've seen in a long time! It has whit, humor and a dialogue that can leave you behind if your not paying attention. But the slowly built love story between wolf god Holo and merchant Lawrence steals the show for me and everyone else. Holo is a strong and stubborn wolf, two characteristics I automatically relate to.
