Traveling merchant Kraft Lawrence and wolf deity Holo sit down to have dinner with Norah Arendt, a young shepherdess who helped them smuggle gold. Holo's dislike of Norah—due to both the latter's profession and her closeness with Lawrence—prevents her from enjoying her meal.

When Holo falls ill from fatigue, she is cared for by Lawrence, who frets over the health of his dear companion. As she regains her strength, Holo reminisces about the adventures they had together.

You are supposed to watch this OVA in between seasons. I get it that it's the aftermath of their heist at the end of season 1.

To be honest, this seems to be content that can be omitted without losing sight of the plot. But is this OVA worth watching? I say, yes.

The employment of the four humors, an old medical theory that was made way before the middle ages but was still used then was very interesting to me, and was amusing to find out it was a real concept as I had expected. Aside from Holo getting sick, it can be ...

Everything that makes Holo a beloved character is condensed into a 23 minute window. Holo gets jealous, wasted, makes lots of cute faces, makes lots of sad faces, and mixes her immense wisdom with charming snark as is true to her personality.This is exactly what you look for in OVA content - a reminder of why we love characters and putting them into more intimate situations than in the regular anime.

Even if you've never seen the regular anime, and especially if you have, this is a must watch. The complete collection blu ray contains both seasons and this OVA for ~30 somehow, a price so ...
