The official website for the anime Ōkami to Kōshinryō: Merchant Meets the Wise wolf (Spice & Wolf: Merchant Meets the Wise wolf) revealed a new promotional video for the work announcing its debut in April 2024.



This will be a new project, which will tell a completely new story adapted from the light novels Spice & Wolf by author Isuna Hasekura. The adaptation will feature the return of the original voice actors to their roles: Jun Fukuyama and Ami Koshimizu, respectively as Kraft Lawrence the wolf Holo.

The anime will be produced at the Passione studio, and Takeo Takahashi is returning to the franchise, this time as chief director. Hijiri Sanpei (episode director on Spice and Wolf II) is directing the anime. Kevin Penkin (Made in Abyss, Tower of God, The Rising of The Shield Hero) is composing the music. ENISHIYA is producing the series.

Spice & Wolf follows the lonely life of a traveling merchant, a fact Kraft Lawrence knows well. Wandering from town to town with just his horse, wagon, and whatever goods came his way, the peddler settled into his routine quite well - that is, until the night Lawrence finds a wolf goddess sleeping in his wagon. Taking the form of an attractive girl with wolf ears and tail, Holo has grown tired of tending the crops in the field and makes a deal with the merchant to lend her the cunning of “Holo the wise wolf” to increase his profits in exchange for to take with you on your travels. What kind of businessman could refuse such an offer? Lawrence soon discovers, however, that having an ancient goddess as a traveling companion can be a mixed blessing. Will this wolf girl become too wild to tame?

Author Isuna Hasekura released the novel series Spice and Wolf with illustrations by Jū Ayakura in 2006. The novels took a break after the 17th volume in 2011 and returned with the 18th volume in 2016. The 24th and final volume was released on January 7th. Hasekura began a spinoff series, Wolf & Parchment: New Theory Spice & Wolf, in April 2016.

The novels also inspired two seasons of TV anime from director Takeo Takahashi and screenwriter Naruhisa Arakawa. The first season aired in Japan from January to March 2008, and the second season (Spice and Wolf II) from July to September 2009.

I like several different works, but with a tendency for strange and funny stories.

I like arts, games, drawings and interesting things.
