Synopsis

The story covers 13 years and begins with a 19-year-old college student named Hana who encounters and falls in "fairy tale-like" love with a "wolf man." After marrying the wolf man, Hana gives birth and raises two wolf children—an older sister named Yuki who was born on a snowy day, and a younger brother named Ame who was born on a rainy day. The four quietly lived in a corner of a city to conceal the existence of the "wolf children," but when the wolf man suddenly dies, Hana decides to move to a rural town far removed from the city.

This manga is just... unbelievable. I have seen the movie before and I didn't cry, though it was moving.

The book though. Oh my god, I sobbed so hard, twice.

The thing is, the book lets you feel what you want to feel. The movie had the mood set already. For example at one point in the movie I felt sad but the music was somewhat uplifting so I didn't feel like crying. As I read the book though I sobbed so hard at that point because there was no music to force me to feel something, it was my own thoughts and emotions about read more
