Synopsis

With his carthorse as his only companion, the young merchant Kraft Lawrence slowly wends his way through dusty back roads in search of profitable trade. But this monotony screeches to a halt when, one night, he encounters a harvest goddess in the guise of a beautiful young girl…with wolf ears and a tail! Longing for the northern lands of her birth, Holo the Wisewolf joins Lawrence as he follows the ebb and flow of trade through the countryside. And when the two come across a compelling but suspicious opportunity for profit, will Lawrence with his mercantile chops and Holo with her ancient instincts be able to separate the truth from the lies — and make some coin while they're at it?!

Biased opinions aside.(as this is my favorite manga/anime series)

I would like to say that I lent my friends this manga, and they don't read anything 18+ because of their own personal choosing.
I was still able to convince them to read the First volume as long as i stickynoted/censored all of the Mild Nudity, or anything that was in the least bit suggestive.

So i did, and after 10 minutes of "censoring" the first volume, and about 3 seconds of "censoring" the second. They decided to read it.

After reading the first novel they almost didn't want to read the second, I convinced them otherwise, and they both read more

Without a doubt, Spice and Wolf is one of the more recognizable and loved series of the decade. Originally based on the brilliant light novel and followed by an amazing yet sadly unconcluded anime, now comes a Spice and Wolf manga. But is it really necessary?

The short answer is... yes!

The quality of the manga does not fail to impress! A must read for any fans of the series, and especially those of the anime. Every scene shown in the anime is expanded upon in the manga with much detail and often with very high quality art making it a very worth while to read.

Spice and Wolf is a very non-comum manga, and I guess that's what called my attention.

This manga tells about a merchant named Lawrence, that travels around the world selling and trading things, it's based on the european medieval economy, the exchange, and the begining of the money. And I guess I've never read a manga about economy before. So, this Lawrence find a girl with a tail and wolf ears called Horo, and she said that she is a godness, the wheat godness, but the people don't need her anymore, and shes far away from home, so Lawrence decided to help her to read more
