The Rumbling Spicy Juliet Sandwich with a hint of Clannad Sauce

Well I’m no stranger to these ingredients separately…but I wonder what will happen if we put them all together in a single Podcast.

Will it be like Akane’s cooking attempts from Ranma ½?

OR

Will it be like a meal Sanji from One Piece has carefully crafted?

Yep, I'm posting another DC today. That's because I'll be away form my computer til Friday night and would rather post while I'm on here instead of on my phone or iPad (if I can ever get my issue with my Apple ID sorted out). So without any further delay, the second topic of the day is FUNimation's BD release of Spice and Wolf Season 1!

I did it again Vicers. I crumbled under the weight of another RightStuf sale. It's a pretty good order but it could have been better if there was more manga in stock that I wanted. Won't be until later this week that I get to the series I got for DCs. I need to get back into manga reviews, too.

My latest video features my thoughts of every anime (whether completed, dropped or still watching) that I seen over the past year. Because of the video's length, I winded up dividing it into two halves: the first looking into titles I have dropped and the second part looking into what I have completed or still watching. Check them out and offer your thoughts!

 Spice and Wolf
Plot Summary: Kraft Lawrence, a 25 year old peddler travelling from town to town selling and buying various things to make a living during a period much like Europe in the Middle Ages. One night when stopped at the town of Pasroe, he finds in his wagon a 250 year old pagan wolf deity girl named Holo. She appears to be that of a 15 year old girl, except for a wolf tail and ears. She introduces herself as the town's goddess of harvest who has kept it blessed with good harvests of wheat for many years. Despite having the responsibility to watch over the town, she wants to go back to her homeland in the north called Yoitsu, she believes the people have already forsaken her anyway and that she has kept her promise to maintain the good harvests. She manages to bargain her way out of the village by making a deal with Lawrence to take her with him. As they travel, her wisdom helps increase his profits, but at the same time, her true nature draws unwanted attention from the church. ( ANN)
 
The next anime I chose to watch from my list was Spice and Wolf.  At first I really didn't have much expectations for this show.  I figured it was going to be a fun and

enjoyable fantasy anime but, I was wrong.  Spice and Wolf was a fantastic show (both seasons).  The show resolves around Kraft Lawrence and Holo.  During the course of the show Lawrence just wants to make money since he is a merchant.  While trying to make a profit, Lawrence is trying to get Holo to her homeland, which she hasn't seen in years.   The story twists and turn.  At a moment everything is fine and then everything goes bad but, this is what makes the show great.  Another great thing about this show is Lawrence and Holo themselves.  Both of them are great characters and give to the atmosphere and mood of the show (plus Holo is sexy :P).
 
Sadly with both seasons combined and both OVAs, there are only 25 episodes.  The light novel and manga are still going on so hopefully there will be a another season next year.  I would love to read the manga but, it's not far at all.  I was going to check it out online but, there are only 12 chapters out right now and I beat what is covered in the manga is already covered in the anime but, I could be wrong.  If you are looking for a new fantasy anime, give this a shot.
 
My Score - 4.5/5

Sometimes I just like a challenge, so I thought I'd make some of my own Spice & Wolf covers after all the hubbub yesterday. Unfortunately the hardest part was cropping out the title from Yen Press' covers, so they don't look quite as nice. And I'm not totally pleased with the middle one, but I thought since they were trying for photo-ish looks, so would I.
 
But I had some fun. All of the images used here (except the logo) are public-domain or available for NON-commercial use as per Stock.Xchng, for the record. I'm attaching a thumbnail here with the logo (which looks even worse without all the nice black outer glow) and the proper size, in case anyone else wants to play-- the green background should be easy enough to fuss with (couldn't get transparency to work for some reason). If you can clean the logo up that'd be sweet! I just can't take more time than I already have ^^;
 

 No photos, just a wolf and a scale. I also really like a nice, deep red-- fall colors are definitely a msut for S&W!

 I wish I could have squeezed in the silhouette more so you could see it was female, but then you couldn't see the tail.

 Probably my favorite. Apples for Holo, money for Lawrence-- everyone's happy! (?)
