Poor video quality on S1, S2 looks good; great show

by

I love Spice & Wolf. The light novels are well done and the Anime follows the novels quite well. At least up to the point where the Anime stops. 5 stars for the show.

Season 1 video quality is BAD. Really bad. There is a fake sharpness to it and colors are severly washed out. I believe this is due to the difference from NTSC standards in Japan vs North America. 1 star for video quality on S1.

Season 2 looks fantastic. 5 stars.

And to put this into perspective, I own this series on Japanese BluRay (10th Anniversary Set). The S1 video issues are NOT present there and the full series looks great. Funimation messed up the authoring on this, sadly, and didn't fix it for any of the releases.

If you are looking for a great show that has a slow-ish pace but some great, enjoyable characters, S&W is a worthy viewing.

Fewer Apples, More Myth

by -

I enjoyed this overall. The "slow" pacing didn't bother me (nor did the visual quality), and I liked the characters. 4 stars rather than 5 is because I felt the story suffered from too many repeats of certain jokes (Holo and apples/gluttony especially) when there was so much rich, mythic material to explore. Still, I'll watch it again, so I can recommend.

A Journey of Friendship, Economics, and Romanticism

by

I own the out-of-print BD/DVD Combo release of "Spice & Wolf" and the first season was produced by 'Imagine', while the second season was produced by 'Brian's Base' with much improved animation style in season two.

This series is Seinen anime and is vey unique. Holo is a 600 year old immortal deity who stows aboard a merchant's wagon, and upon discovery, promises to help Lawrence obtain his dream if he helps Holo return to her homeland.

The show focuses much on financial trade elements as it does on character growth...boring for younger audiences but mature viewers will find Holo a charming deity who knows how to manipulate others...especially men. For that reason, expect some fan service scenes in this anime, but also involves conflict battles when Holo does shapeshift into huge wolf...as huge as Nyanko-Sensei.

With the announcement of a new anime of "Spice & Wolf" to start production in 2022/2023, it's worth checking out this show for Holo's overall charming/mischievous behavior.
