Hana, a hard-working college student, falls in love with a mysterious man who attends one of her classes though he is not an actual student. As it turns out, he is not truly human either. On a full moon night, he transforms, revealing that he is the last werewolf alive. Despite this, Hana's love remains strong, and the two ultimately decide to start a family.

Hana gives birth to two healthy children—Ame, born during rainfall, and Yuki, born during snowfall—both possessing the ability to turn into wolves, a trait inherited from their father. All too soon, however, the sudden death of her lover devastates Hana's life, leaving her to raise a peculiar family completely on her own. The stress of raising her wild-natured children in a densely populated city, all while keeping their identity a secret, culminates in a decision to move to the countryside, where she hopes Ame and Yuki can live a life free from the judgments of society. Wolf Children is the heartwarming story about the challenges of being a single mother in an unforgiving modern world.

Wolf Children is a really struggling movie to get through, but in the end it was very much worth it. It is about this lady who has to bring wolf children on her own.

And let me just say it is depressing as all hell. She raises and struggles to raise them alone, in the countryside. It was nice seeing the support she received though.

I do not have kids, but man this felt terrible to see.

The ending though was freaking amazing and I kind of want a whole spin off of this haha.

The animation quality is really really good as expected for a movie.

College girl drops out of school to have furry sex with real wolf and raise two wolf kids: the movie.


*Smooth animation. The faces of characters tend to be blurry when they are showing off the backgrounds, but otherwise, the artwork was nice.

*Mostly cute story about motherhood and the difficulties of raising children

*Raising kids is hard and ultimately leaves you alone in the end. But knowing that your kids grew up ok means that you can sit back and be content with the life that you lived. A beautiful and powerful message to end the film with

When i finished it and going to give a rating,i was really looking for an option like outstandingly bad,which could have been a really heartwarming wholesome movie,turned into just a simply putting bad.
It shows how ungrateful your children can be,it shows how amazingly stupid you can be when you are in love and why it is so needed to control your urge in moments

Don't get me wrong,there's nothing wrong to fall in love within a second and make a mistake but in every decision that's just sad

But it made me think about the fact how quickly people forget about some people who work their asses ...
