Spice and Wolf: Another Mysteriously Attractive Series...

Currently finished: Episode 3

The plot development is slow, the idea is new, but the story itself is not that interesting. Yet, for some mysterious reason, I am attracted to the series, just like Mokke. I admit its art work is one of my favorite, but that alone usually isn't enough to completely "glue" me to the series. A good example would be Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-ku, even though I like the art work very much, it came very close to be dropped.

Ok, let talk about the series itself. The idea is this wolf goddess is travelling with the business man. She speaks in weird slang and very interesting accent. She appears to be playful and naive, but very wise. I guess one of the property that attracted me is the character being the blend of naiveness and wisdom, not a common archetype.

New rating (out of 5): 4.35 (net gain: 0.1) - Still Unique
