ANN Review: Spice & Wolf (Vol. 01)

Spice & Wolf (Vol. 01)

My first manga review for AnimeNewsNetwork was posted last night – Spice & Wolf (Vol. 01).

I hadn’t read the light novels or anime before reading the manga (though neither is required as it’s a retelling of the same story), though while I didn’t go in expecting much, I was still disappointed. It was a unique sounding premise being overshadowed by the unnecessary sexuality of the lead character (who looks really young in a lot of panels also). I remain sort of curious about where the plot goes from here but volume one didn’t instill much hope in me. Alas?

    I remember you talking about this, and not totally believing you that there was a light novel that featured a fox-girl that taught about economics. Shame it's doesn't really sound like it adds up to anything worthwhile.
