February Observation Final Thoughts.

With 8 days left in the month it's time to review our observation for Spice and Wolf.

For me, Spice and Wolf is one of a kind. Even set in medieval times it's approach is completely different. Which is refreshing. The characters feel real, and the world is enthralling.

9/10



So here are a few questions for our observers. (All questions can be as brief or as long as you want. Just avoid spoilers.)

Did you enjoy the anime?

Would you want to see more of the anime?

What out of 10 would you give it if you were forced to give it a number?

Do you have any other final thoughts?



As for March's. Voting is now closed. March is a two part observation. A voted series, and a random series. The one that won the vote was Tenjou Tenge, as for the random one. You'll find out on the 29th, when I make the March Observation Thread.

Spice and Wolf 10/10

I loved the sense of adventure it gave me as I watched them travel throughout the world and it kept me wondering where they'd end up next and what might happen along the way. I also liked the character development between lawrence and holo (or horo, had 2 different subs) and watching them grow together. Although there wasn't any kind of epic conclusion I didn't feel cheated, but strangely satisfied. That being said I'm rooting for season 3 one of these days.
@shonen: What would you like to have seen done different in order to give it that extra point for it to be a 10?

That is for me to know, and you to never find out. :P

Did you enjoy the anime?
yes i enjoyed it very much i loved the midevial setting and the fact that its interesting without any action or fighting (even though there was a bit lol) its also very uniqe which made me appreciate the person who made it. plus it was a funny somewhat romantic story which i thought was good

Would you want to see more of the anime?
Yes but i would want it to be in like the final strech where we actually see an ending to the story

What out of 10 would you give it if you were forced to give it a number?
8.75 out of 10 lol

Do you have any other final thoughts?
welll though it was very good i found some situations and ideas a little hard to understand and didnt really get it till i read the manga lol but still very well done

Note: I only watched the first season, as I was currently watching several anime, and the second season wasn't available on instant netflix :(

Did you enjoy the anime?
Yes. I loved the music and the detail, as well as the thought put into the situations involving Kraft and Holo. It was very original, and didn't leave any open questions about details or events in the story.

Would you want to see more of the anime?
I always want to see more of every good anime, even if it's ending was already perfect. I simply can't give you a straight answer, because unless I didn't enjoy it, it will be a yes.

What out of 10 would you give it if you were forced to give it a number?
10. This series was original, entertaining, and had the ability to be romantic, comedic, and well-thought all at once. All the characters had interesting personalities, and even something simple like a business trade could be miraculously captivating and interesting. Deep enough for ya?

Do you have any other final thoughts?
Refer to above question. I really had explained it there. What I do know is that Holo is one of the greatest, most interesting, captivating, mesmerizing, and explosive personalities in an anime to become one of my favorite characters ever.

One question: If Holo's body is in a human state, with a skeletal configuration of a regular human being, how can she freely move her tail about? I suppose I shouldn't question the gods.

Finally finished Spice and Wolf.

I enjoyed it, it wasn't an omg amazing anime but it did a pretty good job with what it was aiming for and the character interactions were interesting to see.

I'd like to see the second season and such, though I can't say for sure when I'd get to that. Way too many things to watch before I even think about that.

I think I'd give it an 8, namely because for what it was intended for it definitely had success, though it's a different style from the type of animes I tend to love most.

The interactions between Holo and Lawrence were a major part of what makes this anime appealing, and I gotta say it was pretty awesome every time Holo went full on wolf mode. Didn't expect an anime about economics and such to be so enjoyable, though I'm not sure how much I'd enjoy other animes of this type since this one in particular had to do a good job for me to enjoy it.

Around the Los Angeles area, which is pretty convenient for me lol.

I've been to Barstow many times when my family would stop there on the way up to our numerous journeys to Las Vegas vacationing. xP
