Spice and Ghost Town [Orange Farm Archive]


Nice save.


This is mine.  Find your own.


Don’t stare directly at it.

Keeping up with the anime this season has been a tiring endeavor, to say the least.  A lot of the plots are starting to heat up, and Spice and Wolf is no exception.  Horo and Lawrence are entering into their first profitable plan, and I can’t believe I just wrote that, because it means I’m excited about economics.



I was surprised to find what playful creatures wolves really are.  The in-between theater show with Lawrence and Horo exchanging their quips and emotions while enjoying their free time the way a young couple would in the 1200’s is surprisingly entertaining.



Oh the things they did before internet.  I can’t say I’m not envious, though.  I struggle a lot between a complex ambition and lazy simplicity.  I think the best thing we can do is live out the best of our time, though I wonder how this era will be viewed in the future.


“Stories about your boring times?  Are they going to make an anime about someone playing Starcraft and it’s wondrous adventure? Haha…

Really envious.


“I’ma nom you :D”

The simple joys of life.  Anime has always been the great form of entertainment to communicate a setting, expression, and ideas.  If anyone know’s an anime that has a tone unique and well flowed as Spice and Wolf, let me know.


“Ulterior motive?  Anything of value to say?”

Not really, I just love watching these two’s play on words and develop their relationship in this setting.  It’s never a chore to watch Spice and Wolf.  Is that what makes it the best anime this season?  There’s something really natural about watching Spice & Wolf, almost like a theater play – if I ever made that comparison in the past.  Well, I guess it’s time to get to work…the merchant work for Lawrence should come into play next episode.  Also, as this post is being made, I’m most likely playing in a melty tournament – so lets see if my luck will match Lawrence’s, or if I’ll lose all my profit~  Wish me luck~

    Horo and Lawrence’s interactions are the highlight of the show, which is what made the Amarty arc so painful and boring to watch despite the high level of DORAMA on display. I imagine future portrayals of this time will draw on the credit crisis, the close-mindedness of Americans in the eight years under Bush and the escalating social disorder in Japan (at least as far as anime goes).

    Good luck in your melty blood tourney!

    Spice and Wolf 2 is clearly the best anime to come out this year.
