Dreaming of someday owning his own shop, traveling merchant Kraft Lawrence spends his days looking for trade opportunities. One day, however, Lawrence's adventure takes an unexpected turn when he discovers a naked wolf girl asleep in his wagon.

The charming girl claims to be Holo, the wolf deity of the nearby town Pasloe. Having grown weary of the ungrateful locals, she requests Lawrence to take her back to her hometown of Yoitsu, located farther north. In return, she will help him with his mercantile affairs, lending him her shrewd mind and keen judgement.

The pair now travels from town to town, dealing with various people and the troubles they come with. But as their hearts and destination grow closer, their days of companionship are numbered.

Me and Holo.. Oh sorry, I mean 'Spice and Wolf' manga has been said to be the worst version of the story. This is perhaps true, but it contains countless, polished artwork of Holo eating, sleeping, drinking, smiling, bathing, smirking, hugging, sitting, and---apples, and therefore, it's perfect and flawless in every way. Not really, but it's exactly everything a fan of the franchise could wish for.

The art of this manga is fantastic. I have lost count on how many light novel series and already produced anime series have received a manga adaptation with beyond lackclustery art. Spice and Wolf looks rough and almost sketched, read more

This is a review about a very unique manga that's way too UNDERRATED IMO, where most fantasy themed manga are about swords and magic this takes on a more trade and economic route and adds in witty dialogs, great story, amazing characters, plot twists and WHOLESOMENESS.
You might think that this manga being about trades and economic in the medieval ages would be boring but here I am reviewing this masterpiece.

tl;dr: A manga adaptation that has some weaknesses, but is overall a very good blend of romance and economics.

This manga is an adaptation of a light novel that was also adapted into a pretty popular anime. It is primarily centered around two core aspects. The first core aspect is the story of Holo and Lawrence, their relationship and their growth. It's an incredibly slow burn romance. A lot of their interactions stem from them both constantly teasing each other, with Holo generally being the one to start things off, but they're both also very cool headed and able to respond well to such teasing, and read more

A genuinely good anime and manga. It is originally a light novel, just so you know, and the manga skips some chapters. The anime, on the other hand, did not completely adapt the entire light novel. The story revolves around Lawrence and best-girl on the show, Holo. Their romance is top-notch. The story was well written, and I enjoyed it. To complete the story, you would want to either read the manga up to chapter 35 or watch season 1 of the anime (season 1 = chapter 1 - 35). Then you HAVE to watch season 2 of the anime. The anime adapts those light read more
