    OK, I am in love... with this series. I know that the light novel(s) on which this manga adaptation was based on has been translated into English, but there is just something about the visual medium that makes it stand out. Lawrence and Holo are very cute together and even though there is a lot of plot based on economics, it doesn't detract from the actual story and the characters. It was shrink wrapped in the store due to Holo's initial appearance completely naked, but then she is a wolf and wo OK, I am in love... with this series.

    This manga is weird. It’s kind of like a slice of life but with fantasy elements in it? About 95% of this manga was just a merchant going about his daily life, but oh yeah there’s also a wolf girl who’s kind of like a goddess? And she can shift between a human and a wolf and she knows when people are lying. It was kind of a slow read.

There were several pages just explaining currency exchange rates and why it’s important and how it can change. I may still continue because it seems to be a short series (and highly recommended by a friend of mine), but it doesn’t seem to be terribly necessary to read either.

    This is one of those mangas I don't really understand the appeal. It's about a merchant being a...merchant. That means going around towns, selling, getting tips, and creating a profit while living on the road. There's other series like this, and I get the slice of life appeal, but it's not done in a interesting way. Saying that, the main characters work well enough and the art is great. I also really enjoy the fact the nudity isn't shown to be "Sexy" or "fanservice" but as a matter of fact they This is one of those mangas I don't really understand the appeal.

Also, the main character despite being half fox is a cutie. Overall though, it's kind of boring. It's good for what it goes for, and art is great, but not for me. A 2.5 out of 5.

Along with the fact that the main character looks and is spoken about as looking like a girl, I really hope the main character doesn't fall in love with her later down the line. Not to mention the whole wolf thing, the discussion of fine furs and her being naked through parts of it....

    Who knew a manga about merchants and economics could be so interesting. This volume is quite slow and is mostly set up, but I still enjoyed learning about the world and the characters immensely. Holo is adorable. Reading volume 2 has become a high priority.

    To be fair this just reaches a 3 star rating. The story itself was light and the mystery behind the coins is enough that I may pick up the second volume. I did like the artwork, as well.

    Spice & Wolf is a manga adaptation of the original light novel, as well as the anime. The story revolves around Lawrence, a merchant in sort of medieval-ish setting, who gets his hand on some wheat from a village that prays to a wolf god to keep their crops healthy. When Lawrence leaves, and finds a mysterious woman suddenly in his wagon, he's a bit surprised to find the wolf god-dess, Holo, has decided to travel with him, and perhaps make a bit of money on the side.

When Lawrence leaves, and finds a mysterious woman suddenly in his wagon, he's a bit surprised to find the wolf god-dess, Holo, has decided to travel with him, and perhaps make a bit of money on the side. Spice & Wolf is definitely one of the more interesting/different manga series I've read. It's got that smart thinking, plotforming style that reminds me a lot of Death Note in that it involves mostly conversation and plotting instead of action, but just focuses on making a living instead of outsmarting L/Kira. It's also got a heroine, Holo, who's very herself, and doesn't need to depend on anyone but herself. She's not an action, Katniss style heroine, but rather a more subtly strong one. She's got an almost honest confidence in herself is what I'm getting at, if that makes any sense. So most of this manga is really just set-up for the bigger plotline to come (I'm expecting) in the next few volumes. A lot of it focuses on the knowledge Holo has to learn in relation to trading, and a few scenes showing us the beginning of the 'conspiracy'/moneymaking scheme Lawrence and Holo are setting up. Much like the first few chapters in a book, there's nothing here to totally grab your attention just yet. There are a few character development hints, and lots of fun witty lines, but so far it's too cute and just funfunfun for anything serious as of yet. Notice the yet. I've got a good feeling this series is going to just keep getting better and better. I've already talked about Holo quite a bit, and to be honest there's nothing more to be said about her other than she's awesome, I love her, and she's my favorite character so far. Lawrence works really well with her in terms of the storyline, and as a character. There's an easy balance between them that makes me wonder if a romance will develop between the two, and at the same time not caring if one does. They're cute together, but I don't feel the need for there to be anything more as of yet. The art style is fabulous, and the scenes with Holo are very adorable and just plain fun to read. All in all, a lovely volume. 4-4.5/5

    I was actually told about the anime series Spice and Wolf about a year ago. A friend of mine recommended it because they thought it was something I would enjoy. I never got around to watching the show, but did stumble upon the manga recently. I had no idea that the manga and the anime series are based off of light novels.

I enjoyed the conversational style writing in this manga. The story line was very clear. At first Lawrence does not believe Holo’s story of being a wolf demon and thinks she is just some disfigured runaway, so Holo has to bring out the big guns and give him a little bit of a show… Well, lets just say she proves who she is and Lawrence learns not to doubt her. I really enjoyed learning the folklore surrounding Holo’s existence. How she is connected to the land, the wheat is amazing. It seams that Lawrence and Holo will be able to help one another as they are now traveling together. Lawrence helping Holo blend in, she does have wolf ears and tail to learn to hide. I can see Holo becoming a great asset to Lawrence in his merchant business as she can tell when people lie. I loved the artwork in Spice and Wolf. It was detailed and beautiful. I can’t wait to learn more about these characters and see what happens next. Happy Reading, Rebecca www.bendingthespine.blogspot.com

Swindling someone in a position of authority when you're VERY likely to have dealings with them again? Take it from a proud Slytherin: that's bad business. TL;DR - Boring story with two people just TALKING about how ~suuuuper clever~ one of them is most of the time, or else discussing random merchant-related things that really only have any bearing on this pretend world. And one of them is often naked, or else eating in a grossly messy way (that is supposed to be sexy? Somehow?? I guess???). 0/5

The story and characters are great, with the trading and economic angle giving this an unique hook and feel. But this is my third time through the material. Loved the anime. Found the light novel good but a bit dry/boring in parts. This is somewhere between the two. Spice and Wolf remains excellent at its core, but there's not really enough unique or stunning about the version to warrant continuing for me. New readers will find a lot to like though.

    Lawrence Kraft is a traveling merchant who one day finds a hitch-hiker napping in his cart: a wolf-goddess named Holo who has taken semi-human form. She would like him to take her north, back to her homeland, and along the way he teaches her about human economics while she uses her specific talents to help him out in his dealings. This comic was okay but not a lot happens in the first volume and I much preferred watching the anime.

This comic was okay but not a lot happens in the first volume and I much preferred watching the anime. The "explicit content" warning on the cover can be safely ignored; Holo, being a wolf, appears naked in a couple early scenes, and that's all. There is also no "language" as denoted by the rating on the back cover. It's harmless and honestly I wouldn't hide this one from kids. It's a bit sad the publishers decided to rate it so harshly and keep a large portion of the manga audience from reading it.

    Volume 1 of spice and wolf is the beginning of the adventures of Kraft Lawrence, a traveling merchant, and Holo, a wolf girl( that may or may not be a god?). The manga goes in-depth on Lawrence's life as a traveling merchant, exploring the different risk evaluations he has to take and decisions he must make to come out of top on a particular deal or trade. I enjoyed the dynamic between the two main characters and also found the mercantile aspect of the story quite compelling.

    Saw only the first ep of the anime and found it good. The setting was nice, the characters were interesting but haven't continued watching it yet. And so thought let's see what the manga is about. And its about the same. What got me interested was not only these two characters, the setting but the story as well. Good start, looking forward to Holo and Lawrence's adventures and wonder what they'll do next. Saw only the first ep of the anime and found it good.

    This manga is a waste of $12. It's advertised as a story about a merchant and that's exactly what it is. The story is about how many furs he can sell, shaving down of money to trick dealers, the freshness of fruit, on and on. You'll say, well it's for kids, they will like it. Except it contains nudity so it is definitely not for kids. This manga is a waste of $12. It's advertised as a story about a merchant and that's exactly what it is.

    Disclaimer: I watched parts of the anime when it showed on the Funimation channel. It gave me a feel for Spice and Wolf. The premise is interesting and it does well as a show, and I was curious how it translated as a manga. Nothing is all that different except the nudity. I’m not sure if there is some censoring by Funimation, however, the manga features a lot of nude Holo.

It’s a little weird because Holo is little and quite innocent (even though we’re constantly reminded by her that she is the wise, old wolf). This is the tale of a merchant who uses charm, charismatic nuance, wit, tricks, and really any descriptor for a crafty villain or despicable beggar as he travels to sell, trade, and barter. Kraft Lawrence is neither a villain nor a beggar (yet, haha!) he seems one of the genuine merchants who delights in some tricks of the trade. His honest demeanor is marked in the beginning as he is well known in some parts, especially for less theatrical heroics like providing food during a shortage. If you enjoy long car rides with a hint of daydreaming then this is the story for you! I might catch a few more volumes down the line. As of right now I don’t feel the need to continue. Spice and Wolf is not bad it’s just not filling my cup with anything I crave at the moment. On to the next!

    This reads like it was written by a teenage boy who fantasized about all the things he would want a girl to say and do, and then wove it into a weak storyline. Holo the wolf/woman has no real personality. Everything she says is a double entendre, and she's naked A LOT without any reason to be. For some reason she finds Lawrence likeable, even though in real life, he would be the type of guy all women would stay away from.

There are also weird scenes where Holo goes from being clothed to randomly naked (but she's not REALLY naked), and lots of talking about the value of coins (Lawrence doesn't understand how Holo can understand something so complex, which is a little hmm), and every man that meets Holo is openly creepy to her. To sum it up: The characters in this manga are unlikeable. Even if you're into more mature reads, the innuendos and nudity are done in such an immature way that it makes you cringe. There is little to no actual story here. The art is not that great. It objectifies women, which is gross. If I had paid for this instead of renting it from the library, I would feel very angry about it.

If this doesn't sound like your jam, I don't blame you... but I wouldn't deter you from giving this a go. It's refreshing to read something that doesn't need magic spells, battles, or intense action and instead offers a glimpse into a different type of plot where characters rule. It's an exploration into another type of life and not an entirely boring one. If you're tired of your typical adventures and plots, honestly, give this a go.

    3.5 stars! Loved the originality of this. The two main characters are likable, and I found the plot quite interesting despite being quite centred on economics! My only criticism is that did she *really* have to be naked so much? I mean I guess her being a wolf it makes more sense than it does in other manga so I guess I can forgive it. Also, I don't know if it's the version I read or something, but some of the dialogue translations were a bit clunky. Really enjoyed the concept though and think I'll 3.5 stars!

But having had a little peek, I think I'm going to read the light novels instead as they seem to be more heavy on world building which I like.

    The art is good. The story is good (having been adapted from an excellent light novel series). The story feels a bit more sparse, with some detail left out relative to the light novel source material. Economics in particular, as a subject, seems less richly detailed than in the light novel. It's quite enjoyable none the less, and I look forward to volume two.

While the rating (four stars) looks the same for this manga volume (which makes up a fraction of the story in volume one of the light novel series) as it does for the first Spice and Wolf light novel, the light novel deserves a much stronger four-star rating. If we used a ten-point scale, this manga would be a seven-star rating, and the first light novel would get an eight-star rating.

    I never expected ... a story about the skills a traveling merchant needed to develop, the dangers in a free trade area when a country decides to manipulate its currency and the developing relationship between the merchant and the clever and adorable Wolf. Well, this my first manga. I'll certainly continue with this series and see what else I've been missing. I am five volumes in to a light novel series by Fujino Omori which is loads of fun but S&W is fun and serious storytelling as well. Kudos.

    Very weird manga taking place in a fantasy world and a parental advisory for some nudity, but the story is about selling commodities. The fantasy setting and the nudity add nothing to the story. If you take out the fantasy and the nudity, the story would be exactly the same. Seems underdeveloped to me.

    3.75 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was good but some of it was kind of confusing. And there was a tone of nudity that was just not necessary to the story and it just made the story awkward. Not a great deal actually happened as far as the story went.

    I haven't yet figured out if I like this book yet however, it was quite interesting and very much based on economics of the fantasy world this book is based in. I am actually intrigued to read to read the next book.
