Oh man its that time of night again!
Horo is Love.
Korbororo is Life.
Spice and Wolf is the story of a lone traveling merchant, Kraft Lawrence, who in the event of leaving a town with his horse and carriage discovers hes not so alone. A wolf deity, Holo the Wisewolf of Yoitsu, unexpectedly boards his carriage among the wheat he had bought and proclaims herself the Wolf of the Wheat for many centuries promising amazing harvests for the villagers. Among their travels they face hardship and poverty as Lawrence works diligently to make enough money to settle down and open his own shop one day while Holo wishes to return to the north of which she came to her home of Yoitsu.
these threads really should go in /c/ but whatever ill post images
Well /a/ is for anime, Spice and Wolf is an anime, I think it just happens that Holo is cute but we had a really good thread a few days ago with 300+ posts and stuff
I don't know which one is better.
/a/ should really be for discussion, not image dumps, which is what these threads tend to be. It usually depends on how the thread is started.
I should get around to reading book 2
i still haven't even read the books because the only things i read are western canon
Usually someone goes about some ridiculous plot interpretation of Holo got raped or something which isn't true in the least
Someone then posts the rebutal, then after that it delves into talking about the books and stuff
oh man theres like 17 books, 10 of which have official releases in the US
They named my Battleship in that thread
"Holo the Wisewolf" was its name
i've been in enough threads to know.
Holo prostituted herself to get Lawrence through that forest and you know it.
Don't try and ruse me
has anyone played the DS games? I'm kinda curious on what they are. I know it's basically a merchant game, but that's it.
i think some guys might be working on a translation but i cant remember. never played it because i dont speak fucking moon
>comes from the meeting with the wolves naked with specific mention of dirt on her knees
I really did enjoy this entire story, brought me some feels along the way, Town of Strife 1 and 2 were kinda boring I think they could have delivered the idea better
what pisses me off is that at the end of 16 it makes an obfuscating reference to lawrence proposing to Holo, then suddenly in the epilogue of 17 its "hey guys 5 years later and they married and explain everything that I should have written about but didn't!"
the epilogue should have been book 18, book 17 should have been ALL the events they skipped from 16 to 17
Thats a farce of an inference and its no where near implied
Holo begged for safe passage because of the territorial dispute
She begged alright.
If I lived in my basement and never left to socialize with the world I'd make this my background
Spice and Wolf isn't exactly Aria but it was comfy as fuck.
Seven apples on a witches tree
Oh god it keeps getting worse each time I see one of these threads.
Add more "ro"s to it in the future.
other than that word I dunno, it IS comfy as fuck
to plant their seeds inside of me...~
i socialize with people all the time
>not putting cheery things near/on your computer
same reason I buy plushies.
It's with seven seeds to plant inside of me, faggot
In springtime i grew a magic song~
but all I own is a laptop and I go to college every day
when spring came along, I sang the song to every one
Why is Spice and Wolf so inclined to NTR?
these are the best fan works I've ever seen
how the fuck do I use this website, everytime I click it I get a panda with a flower
I looked at the world through apple eyes
>he doesn't know how to get past sad panda
Because people get kicks out of corrupting beautiful things.
Lawrence isn't immortal
So the wolf bitch gets to see him eventually pass away to age while she lives on
oh jesus, I've been listening to that song so fucking much I keep forgetting the lyrics because I listen to the catchy-ness of it rather than the lyrics itself
forgive me hresvelgr I have failed you
At least holo eventually accepts this and gets over her fear of lawrence dying so instead of leaving him outright she decides to stay with him
I hope you die in a fierce fire.
better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all
No I don't I've never gone to that site
pls help me
because this isn't a sadpanda thread.
figure it out yourself, newfag
Post a picture of yourself in an embarrasing pose and i will tell you.
When Holo gets pregnant, what's the child gonna be
something like this i guess
I'm going to ruin your wine
I got the worst feels ever from this book
Holo finds Myuri's Mercenaries to find out myuri was gone and had left his claw to be passed down for generations as well as his name. Holo realizes that everyone is gone and she had been absent for so long it just ripped my heart a new one
oh man I don't even know
If it works like other Gods and Greek myths and things, the child of a deity and a human should be a half blood that retains some power of the god and the god's longevity as well
Oh god this is so cute
what a shitty waifu.
When did this happen?
What does the japanese stuff say?
before they posted the video to youtube silly
i dont fucking know do i look like the kind of dipshit weeaboo that knows japanese?
Is dat some applejuice?
You nerds really ARE worse than middle-age housewives!
I know what that shit tastes like!
Its Hard Apple Cider and Cinnamon Wiskey
We have a thing like that in america it uses Angry Apples Cider and Fireball Whiskey mixed its called Angry Balls
Oh my god anon. Did you see her ass? It was so... big.
Why is Yen Press releasing the novels so fucking slowly? It'll be fucking 2016 by the time they finish it off.
You guys are fuckin weird, this shit ain't about no housewaifu shit
they're milking it for money
the author hasn't done anything notable since he made spice and wolf
book 17 was rushed out the ass because the publishers wanted him to do it
I'm watching ep6 right now.
When do they kiss?
No way man I'm not telling you when they kiss it'll spoil the surpreese!
you're only on ep6, it'll be a while before they do
Dear god..I have always stayed clear of that fireball whiskey shit but I may have to try this.
i can't remember but they hold hands in the next episode.
I actually started learning japanese because I enjoy it, not to be super weeb.
bottom is something about having apples
I don't know if I
Oh man its like the best drink to have just ever so slightly chilled
like take hard apple cider, leave it out for an hour, its now mildly chilled, then take a shot of fireball whisky then add an ounce to about 8 ounces of hard cider and its like having liquid gold pour down your throat its so smooth and rich
Time to keep watching.
Love the black and white morality so far.
Why is Horo such a slut, only gets with other wolves and NTRs lawrence while teasing him
what does this stand for?
she never copulates with the wolves you dolt
She threatened to NTR him in volume three with Amati.
basically cheating or stealing a lover
"Japanese acronym for Netorare, used to define a genre of Eroge (Hentai Game), meaning "Cuckold". In short, the main protagonist's loved one(s) are ..."
first fucking result on google you retard
I think she was really angry with lawrence because lawrence didn't tell holo about yoitsu being destroyed, it meant the world to her. Beyond that, at the end of that event it was holo's plan all along to force the scheme to crashing the market in lawrences favor using her charm on amati to swindle him into dealing with her
I just wanted you to know I really don't care.
Then why do you ask?
Saved. I'll have to give that a try.
Also thinking about substituting hard cider with apple pie moonshine.
I just wanted to know
but you telling me to google something then calling me a retard doesn't phase me a bit
I just wanted to make sure you knew I didn't give a fuck.
i wasn't the person you just responded to. also if you need to tell me that "STICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK MY BONES BUT WORDS WILL NEVER HURT ME >:(" on an anonymous imageboard you're a fucking huge faggot.
He's like one of those betas who asks every girl he thinks is pretty to marry gim
secretly, or not hes really autistic and or ADD/ADHDHDHDHD and he'll never have a holo of his own
maybe he should head on down to Norah's house
shes kinda cute
I want to stroke it.
I don't care
>tfw you will never hug holo when she cries that she doesn't want to be alone
Holo doesn't like to have her tail touched that much unfortunately theres only a handful of times where someone else gets to touch it.
Oh man you just gotta realize shes just a cartoon and she'll never be real
The moment you get over that is the moment you stop feeling sorry for yourself and you go out and get your own Holo and you live happily ever after
Stop sobing the world is your oyster, shes waiting for you anon, shes out there somewhere just waiting to be taken off her feet and you know it. I know you can do it.
>Get your own Horo
But 3DPD anon. A man can dream.
Why is it that when ever I see ANY other anime recreation of some wolf/cat/animal humanoid like Touhou or some shit I think "thats really fucking stupid" I watched but a few episodes of that stuff and I was kinda disgusted like it really wasn't appetizing at all
But when I see holo I'm totally fine and OK with it like its nothing and totally neat
>keeps replying far longer than he should
>"I-I don't care!"
You can dream all you want but they'll never come true.
For some reason I read that in the doctor's voice.
At least she doesn't get tricked into thinking she can do something, then live in a delusion until everything comes crashing down at once.
Do you know where I can find a redhead female wolf god with a crippling, permanent fear of loneliness?
The same thing the turned /v/ into neo-/v/ is basically getting worse on /a/ as well.
I don't want neo-/a/...
Thats not edgy, thats just me being unaffected by petty and witty remarks
I think you already know that people don't care but you've never actually heard someone say it.
Pic related. Now go. She's waiting. And don't forget the pickled pears.
Is it an important conversation to the thread at hand though? Easier and less intrusive to just ignore and move on.
So horo is basically CC right
>get your own Holo
No, shes not in any way
So I just finished marathoning S1 and S2... Cue typical lack of satisfaction.
I guess the LNs are next. From my digging through the archives, I managed to find volumes 1-10. Have more been translated?
I can't believe these things exist
That bitch gets around.
Somebody translated them all and there is a torrent floating around. Never saved the link though.
All have been translated
Google Drunken Wolf Translation to find the latter half
you'll really enjoy it
make sure you go back and read book 4
theres an entire plot there that wasn't included in the anime
You're going out of your way to appear as nonchalant as possible to the people who are helping you and calling you out on being a dependent idiot that can't do anything for himself. Nobody cares that you don't care either. You don't give a shit, and no one gives a shit that you don't give a shit, so you're the one trying hard here and looking like you're trying to save face after being an idiot.
Lurk, google, and stop posting. Think about the things you post on /a/ before you post them. This isn't really a twitter designed for idle questions and chatting.
>Watching Spice and Ho
Bitch toys with MC and fucks around like a beast
I'll find one someday.
If you search for "Drunken Wolf Translations" you should be able to find them.
>You're going out of your way to appear as nonchalant
But I am nonchalant, fool.
Thank you, kind sirs.
>Way too fucking busy to look through it for new pictures
Damn shame. Oh well. Enjoy your evening Korbros.
Can you read minds or something? I think I've saved like 80 that I like and I just can't save any more its like I have them all or something
We don't care
Great, we have more in common than before.
The waifu age approaches.
No anon! thats not real! stop fooling yourself
the real thing is better!
I like Horo, but I'm afraid I have my sights set on another red-head.
At least you have taste
I don't see Holo as my "waifu" or any of that shit, I see her as a really good character with a well developed personality, I like they way she thinks, talks, acts and what not
I cringe when I see hentai and other lewd shit of her makes me feel like thats not even her its a total identity theft and what not
You guys named my Battleship a few days ago
Name my Interceptor, its an Amarr Malediction Class Interceptor Frigate
Top Speed: 650 sanics
Turn Radius: on a trenni
Role: TACKLE THAT FUCKER
How does this make you feel?
What was Lawrence's Horse named? that thing was pretty fast
You think this is a game asswipe?
Wonderful. Bloody horo is perfect, and dem hips.
fuck me its Pixie
Yea man, the horse
what was the Horse's name
Yea I know its the horse but whats its name?
Horse. Ok, it's never really defined IIRC, so most people just call him Horse.
name it Horse
I don't think we're thinking of the same man, but after reading your comment I read his post in Doc Brown's voice.
Marty! She's just a cartoon!
Why is holo the best?
I'm still kind of absorbing everything but... is Horo initially supposed to confuse the shit out of you?
As in, I can't figure out why she she's doing what she's doing or saying what she's saying most of the time.
inb4 greentext about being a pleb and not being able to comprehend the deep intricacies of her character, etc.
What do you mean?
Oh okay, so it's just the case of her being a typical woman?
As in it don't make sense, son. Maybe she's just a different caliber of tsundere than I'm used to?
No you're right
Holo often talks in metaphors, she often times speaks something and then lawrence falls for the "trap" where it literally means nothing of what she said
She finds amusement in traping lawrence in these paragons, her feelings are complex and it isn't until about half way through the book before she actually blatantly tells lawrence how she feels about their situation
The first time I read through it, I WAS confused, she is incredibly obfuscating and vague and it actually makes you feel like a shitty reader as if you didn't pick up on foreshadowing. You'll only actually get or predict accurately what will happen if you're good at reading between the lines, but Holo's personality is a mask until you finally can see through her, lawrence has a hardtime seeing through her aswell. Constantly calling him a fool for many things results in confusion.
She also has a more old-english talk about her unlike lawrence who is obviously more modern because she's well over 600 years old and looks as if to be 17 or 18 years old
She'll slowly open up I assure you
That picture feels so australian
She enjoys to be contradicting.
when are they making season 3, LN are all out in Japan last year..
She's not really a tsundere.
Think of her as a lonely goddess trying to find someone whom she can spend a portion of her life with.
She gets caught up in her pride as the wisewolf, she uses her prowess to think highly of herself in front of lawrence to show her intelligence and dominance in thinking.
Often times she'll pout or whine when she wants to be pampered, her anger is hidden through mischievous smiles and thoughts. She hates solving Lawrence's microeconomic puzzles with her wisdom as if they're not worth her salt as a character, almost childs play to her. When she gets angry with lawrence she'll often times seize up and simply not talk to him or refuse to participate. She hates feeling left out, feeling alone and she hates it when shes not considered
Oooh, that's good to hear.
I'm looking at the 17 volumes of books and I'm thinking "Am I just going to come away still wondering what her deal is?"
>She hates solving Lawrence's microeconomic puzzles with her wisdom as if they're not worth her salt as a character
This was one thing that did come through clearly in the anime as a theme. It was about Lawrence needing to trust her or at least not doubt her as much. If guess if I was in her shoes, I'd be ticked off if my partner was as dense or as stubborn as he can be at times.
It's good to see that the love is still alive. I hadn't seen a S&W thread in a bit but maybe that's because I was on at the wrong times.
I've gotta sleep, but have a good night korbros
Also, Pyrite, when did you get back?
She sometimes calls lawrence a fool for not seeing such vague situations her way. Sooner or later Lawrence doesn't wanna fall for her traps anymore and simply gives up and plays dumb purposely. This not only makes Holo angry because she can't play mental loops with him but sometimes she has a hard time seeing that hes being sarcastic. Despite this she fully trusts Lawrence's abilities to decipher balances involving economics. Lawrence also somewhat hates being outwitted by her if hes actually being outwitted at all, so he develops a sort of masquerade to be "more wise" like holo is to impress her, she isn't easily impressed.
Real spoiler here as an example
Holo attempts to pretend to be confused towards lawrence while they're having a meaningful moment in an ally way in book 14
Lawrence calls her out on this to say "don't you dare pretend to be confused about this" when she pretends to be confused and angry that lawrence won't understand something she was also attempting to make. She holds her smugness high for lack of a better term and says "I didn't really intend on saying this but if you're really that stupid... I love you so much
A part where their abilities to read each other clash and they both actually speak understandable terms, its probably the most elucidated part of the book series
Long story short, been back but unable to make mugs for the next 2 years. I'll pick it up again then though. So long as that company is still around or I'll find a new one.
I started making these threads because I loved spice and wolf so much, it gave me some feels I really enjoyed and the story is really good.
I'll probably just make another thread tomorrow night if this one dies by then
we had a really great thread a few days ago so I really don't feel like I'm pissing in the wind
One of the things on my bucket list is to learn glass blowing
I want to make myself a glass bowl piece and etch a little picture of a wolf in it some where on the front, like a standing wolf, I'll probably make the glass a mix of dark red-crimson with an amber brown orange collage then use some other technique to highlight the wolf picture, it'll probably be about a dime size image of a wolf on the front
How do you guys feel about the VA change in s2? It makes me sad. I almost don't want to rewatch it.
I wish the author wasn't a lazy ass
He drew this >>100149954
but gave us book 17 bullshit
he hasn't done anything since spice and wolf concluded
like holy fuck I wish he would either write more or try and get a season 3 running
They kinda kept the old english accent
the s2 VA seems to have made her more astute and wise, a lower voice to sort of give her an edge to make her sound powerful I guess
I dislike highpitched screachy japanese VA's, makes the women just sound unappealing
thanks for all the horo images anons i love you all!
If he drew it, does that mean it's canon?
So many artifacts.
I'm up to this episode, and I'm loving it. Vanillafag to the end.
Night bro, thanks for posting
Some are good but S&W just seems to not work as a dub.
I was talking about the japanese va change from s1 to s2
this part always gets me
Holo is only good for sex.
were there end cards for the first season? The torrent i'm using doesn't have any and i cant remember.
Less goddess more immortal.
If she were a god, she wouldn't have had to get raped/prostitute herself
Did i just get spoilered?
how could you get spoiler if you have seen this?
how could you be in the threadif you haven't seen it?
I don't see how that statement could spoil anything though.
I watched S1 years ago and i'm currently downloading S2 and rewatching S1 to pass the time.
WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0FsBGf49LQ
