Spice and Wolf II: Heart Breaking

Currently finished: Episode 5

It was quite heartbreaking to watch the story unfold for the last two episodes, more so than the worst part of the last arc from the first series.

Even so, I still can't help to think that everything is going to be ok in the end, because that how stories nowadays are: the main character always gets a way out no matter how bad the situation looks.

These days, no one is willing to write tragedies any more. That makes almost all stories predictable: the plan pan out as predicted, or someone in the opposing party has a change of heart, or the worst of all, deus ex machina.

Anyway, back to the story itself, even though I know it'll end well, at the moment, it's still quite sad to see them in that situation every time it comes up. Hopefully, they would find a good solution to end this arc, not some cheapened way out of the mess.

Every episode is so gut wrenching to watch. I like happier stories that aren't do evil.
