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.

I have to admit that at first I was completely uninterested in reading Wolf Children, mainly because like most of the fans on here I’ve watched the movie & was totally satisfied with how the story was shown.
I didn’t need to know any more details, because the movie gave my everything I wanted to see & even figuring out that the manga adaptation was going to be published didn’t make me interested.
However, because of a specific accident I received the manga as a gift, just after its finishing & to be honest I’m really grateful for it, because I decided to give the read more

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

I haven't seen the movie for Wolf Children yet, but I can say that the movie will be extremely good based on this manga. The story itself is my favorite type of wholesomeness and love for another person that's mixed with sadness and longing for something to change but you know has to happen. Both Ame's and Yuki's paths are fulfilling in their own way, but really Hana's love and devotion to her children is the character trait that I loved the most. Pure and heartwarming story that left me crying when Ame and Yuki both committed to their paths! I do cry a lot read more

Story: The storyline in this manga hits you straight in the feels. With romance, family conflict and loss of a loved one. Once starting I could put it down until I finished it. The main dialogue start off from Hana's prospective until the second half where we start to see Ame and Yuki prospective and how they grow and shape.

Characters: Character development is amazing in this manga. You literally get to watch them grow and change as individuals and as a family. From the start to the end all our mains characters motivations and end goals shift and change. My favourite character is Ame. read more
