It's started nicely. Art looks good and the ending has a pagan feeling to it that suits the plot well

A sidenote for the Ayako subs, church neither claims people with strange defects as possessed by demons, nor kill them in the name of God. That's how it used to be in the XV century, not nowadays.

Eh, I didn't really care for this. I did like the feudal setting and the concept of a "god" no longer being needed by man. Its pretty interesting. I'll have to watch a few more episodes. Also I watched the Eng dub, and felt that there wasn't really any chemistry with Holo and Lawrence, it sounded awkward. I'll have to try the sub too.

Medieval anime? Fuck yes!
This gives it a unique feeling, which I like a lot.

I just finished watching this episode and I enjoyed it. There were some parts where I was a little confused with what was going on but it's only the first episode so I'm sure I'll understand more as the story goes on. I generally like watching movies or shows about this time period but have never seen an anime for it so I'm very interested in what more will come out of this series.

I watched the dub version, since I prefer to dubs when ever possible but I might just switch to the sub before I watch the second season.

I saw a lot of hype about this anime and its one of the reasons I decided to watch it. It seems interesting, and I like the time era that they have chosen.

Holo reminds me of CC and maybe that the primary reason I'm watching this. She is adorable.

It seems like Lawrance is not oblivious but I would have hit that girl that was clearly throwing herself at him.

I really liked the opening and closing songs and animations.

The episode was good as far as first episodes go. The festival themes were interesting; the ones that were shown anyway.

Can't say much for characters or story yet.

I love how Lawrence had zero reaction to Holo being naked for almost all the episode.

I like the pacing and the ost. The opening is really nice too and the fact that she's nude but doesn't provide any fanservice is pure win.

It's really cute imo; I think the plot is kinda special too!
And for some mysterious reason I wasn't bothered by Horo being nude unlike other fanservices haha~

Then just watch the rest of Spice and Wolf, and see whether it grows on you like Clannad seems to have :)

... I liked it. :> I didn't really know what to expect after reading the synopsis, but it was unexpectedly good. I'm not a big fan of the art style at the moment, but I can see it growing on me. The concept was interesting and the characters are immediately likable. :D I'll keep watching, as many others have done~

The "forget to thank the harvest goddess" thing remind me of Harvest Moon magical Melody. I like Holo's English dub voice.

+1. This show is like the sequel to R2, after the world became peaceful and everyone started riding around on carts...well, CC did, anyway.

Really? I found CC annoying but Holo seems fine to me. I actually think I'm gonna like her.

As for the episode itself, I thought it was really good. It was better than I expected - that's for sure. The setting is pretty nice, the art is great and so is were the interactions between the characters. I liked how they gave no focus to the fact that Holo was naked as the important thing was really who/what she was and what she was doing there. In fact, it was portrayed so naturally it didn't feel like fanservice at all.

This episode is pretty good, at least it is better than what I had expected I wonder what her true form is? I sure hope that I can see it.

I've read the first few light novels, so it's taking me all that I have not to compare the anime to them, but even with the differences, I'm enjoying it. Horo's character is going to be so enjoyable.

And screw everyone, I went and listened to the ED, like, four times. I thought it was cute.

This anime was recommended by friend of mine and why not, I decided to give it a try. From what I have seen so far I have to say that I'm pleased with the unique plot, beautiful art and catching music in Spice and Wolf :) Also, I found Horo's personality quite interesting and her decision to stay with the trader (forgot his name) :D

I really like how the anime added Cloe. In fact, I feel the anime handled the beginning of the story better than the light novel and the manga.

Holo is also one of the best characters I seen in anime, she has genuine wit.

Coincidentally, I'm in the same position. But Fukuyama Jun and Koshimizu Ami are acting their roles very differently, as they should be (and I do agree that Holo is much closer to C.C. than Kallen).

Great episode, but this is pretty strange.
I wonder why this is rated so high, time to watch some more and find out.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Horo was pretty darn kawaii in the ED. I'm liking the pacing and characters so far.

Interesting start of this anime the concept and story behind this first episode was quite interesting, I do think this could be a promising story in the long run if they play it good and have a good strong story line that has a decent plot at the end.

Either way nice start of this first season of Spice and Wolf let's see what these next 12 episodes will bring us!

Put this off for a while, WHILE in my plan to watch list.

Honestly I didn't know what to expect from this anime

Although I am glad that the male lead is a bit older and mature.
And that they didn't do the typical fanservice/ecchi crap they usually do in this type of anime.
And typical how? Well young ordinary boy encounters Extraordinary young female whom clings on to him and they begin their adventures. And for a genre change, to umm harem for example, it's the same, they just add more females. :/blah.

anyways for that I am glad that it wasn't like those. Horo seems interesting and mysterious.
And that other girl,forgot her name, what will become of her??
It seemed serious how they went to get her at the warehouse.

And spice and wolf?
She is the wolf, who is the spice? The other girl? Her hair is red, and she has her moments, so she would be more befitting of that title.

But anyways maybe they just wanted to add spice to the title and it has nothing to do with the story.

Anyways whatever, I will give the 2nd ep a try.
1st ep didn't impress me or anything, was kinda slow and didn't show any plot paths or anything.

Ahh, easy and peaceful to watch.

Edit: I think the other girl was just a side-character. I don't think we will see her again.
