Hey there /a/, I have been watching anime for some time now and I really liked Wolf's Rain. I liked the raw feel to it, the pace of the story, the different people they meet on their adventure and the original setting (well I thought it was original). Can you recommend me anime like this? I just started watching Spice and Wolf, it's not exactly what I meant, but I liked the western setting and that there are two people on an adventure together. Other recommendations?
>>
Lurk more, faggot.
I like your taste in anime though. Wolf's Rain's too underrated for it's own good.

Get the fuck out

I'm down actually. I missed the wave of people watching this show myself. Only watched it late last year.
>>
You know what? Since you realize what a great anime WR is, I'm going to be nice for once:
You see, OP, recommendation threads are highly. HIGHLY frowned upon on this board. They have been for the longest time. /a/ has their own rec list. You can google it, there a wikia for it and everything. So, please, please, please lurk more.
>>
>>101040598
I know man. I have to admit that I almost hesitated when I saw OP because I too enjoyed Wolf's Rain and threads for it aren't often.

Hey, OP, learn how to ask better. You should have started a discussion about this series and then asked Anons which series they found to be similar in story telling once the conversation got going.

Now we're just going to see a thread of out of school kiddies avataring and saying out.

I like it but I think most of /a/ hates it.

Dat soundtrack.

>>101041029
/a/ casts it out because furfags scare them, since, you know, it's about wolves and what not, which I can understand. What they don't realize is, this is actually quite a beautiful anime. It's greatest perk is it's OST, composed by the one and only Yoko Kanno, which I personally think is her best. It's visuals are stunning, there is almost no QUALITY in Wolf's Rain (well, just ignore the noses). Not one character I disliked, they were all likeable in their own way.
This show is very, very underrated. If you haven't watched it, pick it up. It's an amazing experience.

Fuck you're right! I forgot how surprisingly likeable ALL of the characters were, even the one's I was sure I'd hate.

Yes. Stuff like Sanic is for furries, since they are anthropomorphic talking animals. In Wolf's Rain, Kiba, Tsume, Hige, Toboe, and Blue are actual wolves who only hide as humans, because everyone is trying to kill them.

Because it's an easy way to demean the whole show. Way simpler than writing compelling arguments about why the show isn't good.

So, can we talk about how INORDINATELY pissed off I got at the series' ending when Blue didn't appear in the city? It was such a minute detail that they chose not to add in, with such upsetting implications to people who look way too deeply into things. Like, I wasn't I HUGE fan of the ending, but still, this is what I really didn't like.

Some people thought that Blue did not come back to life since she was only half wolf.
Some people have made theories that Blue came back as the cat Toboe was holding. Really that ending was an open ending, and it's up to you what happened afterwards. I just like to believe Blue only didn't show up because she wasn't a main character. I loved Blue. She was best girl.

I found the series itself to be fairly drawn out and the bigger story fairly weak, but god damn the soundtrack was godly.
>>
>>101042083
True, that is probably the best interpretation in my opinion.

Also, this is a particularly dangerous kind of statement when discussing anime, but I feel like the romance between Hige and Blue was actually pretty undersold. Like, I actually think that element deserved quite a bit more screentime than it got.

The story was focused the most on Kiba and Cheza, even though I liked Hige and Blue's relationship more. I do agree with you, they did deserve more screentime together.

Wolfs Rain is utter shit though, in every aspect. It was the Free! of it's time.
>>
>>101042560
Yeah, I really had no investment in Kiba and Cheza as romantic partners. Seemed like an odd choice of spotlight.

Kiba was an odd choice of spotlight in general. He didn't have anything going on and never had much personality. He's my favourite bland protagonist to this day, but still.

Not that Anon and I must say that my memory of the series has grown weak, but I didn't see Kiba and Cheeza in a romantic light either. He loved her platonically or maybe you could say that he cared for her and held her as something precious because she was important and needed for his goal.

Hige and Blue were leaning toward romance for sure, though I don't mind that it wasn't a focus because we understood enough that they cared for each other.

I also didn't mind Kiba as the MC. I didn't see him as bland so much as we were mainly shown the Kiba completely driven on one thing - finding Paradise. I imagine that a Kiba in a happy pack (be that in a time before the fire or even at Paradise someday) was a happy and caring Kiba.
He was rather hot headed and brash throughout the series so we know that he acts on thoughts and feelings not worn on his sleeve. And I like that we partly learn this when we have such MCs who come to be surrounded by others characters who are his complete opposite.

Really been wanting to rewatch. It's also one of the few that I'm divided on sub or dub.
