As the world accelerates toward its own destruction, Kiba and Cheza—with the help of Tsume, Hige, Toboe, and Blue—race to reach true paradise before the entire world is rendered uninhabitable. Now reunited, Cher and Hubb decide to accompany the wolves in hopes of seeing the journey through to its end, while a distraught and confused Quent wanders aimlessly into the wasteland with his mind fixated on revenge.

Meanwhile, Lord Darcia the Third has finally put his plot into motion and pursues Cheza, pitting him against the pack. As everything falls apart yet simultaneously falls into place, the wolves struggle to survive in an increasingly dangerous environment. Though the end draws near, paradise seems further away than ever before.

Better known as episodes 27-30, the Wolf's Rain OVAs are like the natural four last episodes of the series. If you've read my review of the 26 episodes of the anime, I had a few gripes. Combined with the OVA, on the other hand?
It becomes STUNNING!

Intense, emotional, and gripping, the OVAs are the climax of Wolf's Rain. This is where Nobumoto really shined... a good shounen series, but with a seinen-class masterpiece of an ending. The story is given proper closure and the action is at its flashiest, but the characters are beyond what I can describe. It brings them alive and pulls you in, read more

This OVA honestly doesn't feel like an true OVA. There really is no difference to the animation or sound, and doesn't add much to the show besides more problems for the characters. The soundtrack is the same soundtrack they used in the show and there is no new characters introduced. Just another sub-plot that is cleverly told in a way that doesn't make it seem out of place.

In order to "finish" the series in just four more episodes, the pace is fast and to the point. The constant attention to detail and new developments is enough to make people watch.

Granted, this ending is better than read more

I have just finished watching this, and my heart aches. The end of this anime was really emotional and heart wrenching, which had a lot to do with the characters. (I am obviously not allowed to spoil anything for anyone in here, so I will just keep quiet with my feelings.)

In the end, there was a little too much blood, and it felt a little bit rushed to me, compared to the rest of this anime. They could have easily avoided that by just putting a little bit more plot to the other episodes. I really have to say that they did a great job read more

This is a sequal to the series: Wolf's Rain. So this picks up after the end of that one. In a nutshell, usually people would refer to Wolf's Rain OVA with an "Eww, that totally killed the series." If that's all you've been hearing, then you should perhaps give it a chance. It isn't totally evil and bad.

The story itself was a little dull, and the ending... That was a bit obvious after a little bit. The Entire story isn't very sound, or very continuous.

The Art, it was decent. With a bunch of blood splattering everywhere... It was decent. The colors were well done, and read more
