IT'S FAMILY ECONOMICS AFTER ALL!
Travelling merchant Lawrence met a wolfgod Holo that have wolf ears and tail in midst of his travel. The two journeyed towards Holo's home Yoitsu, and at the end of their long journey, they arrived at the hot spring town of Nyohira. Lawrence's ended his travelling merchant life, and choose to live his life with Holo at that place.
10 years later, Lawrence started his business of running a bathhouse named Spice and Wolf. Though everyday is hectic/busy, he is living his peaceful days with his loving wife Holo, and his daughter Myuri. At this bathhouse that are filled with happiness and laughter, how will the story be spun?
Ascertain it with your own very eyes.
Ended his life as travelling merchant, now running the bathhouse Spice and Wolf. Had a daughter named Myuri with his wife Holo, even tho its a busy life, he is enjoying it every single day.
Wisewolf, the god of fertility. Her looks are like a girl in the mid 10. The proprietress of Bathhouse Spice and Wolf. While she guides Lawrence kindly, as a good companion, she support him fully.
The daughter of Holo and Lawrence.
A tomboyish girl who loves mischief, but a very diligent girl. Never been out of Nyohira, she heards story of her parent travels, and hope to experienced the life of the outside world one day.
What about Billionaire Girl and somethingsomethingKemonomimiandAlchemist?
Anyway I think is time I finish the novels. I left where that girl whatshername con Lawrence and left down the river.
Hmm, not sure if want or not. The final novel is almost out and I'm thinking of just ending it with that. The overall story is good, and I enjoy the relationship story between Holo and Lawrence, but there are times when I just can't make head or tails of what's going on, especially when it's an internal thought monologue. Maybe it's poor translation or something. But I think it would be better to just assume they live happily ever after and leave it at that.
It wasn't Cole the one that put me off, but the extremely long voyage down the river plus I was reading something more interesting at the same time, and I kinda forgot about it.
Anyway, I want to fuck the lolifox.
Do you even know what's this thread about you huge faggot.
'Next generation' stories like this usually sounds great on paper but falls through in execution. Is Isuna coming back to this since Economica, Maoyuu, and Billionaire is shit in comparison?
This makes my heart all fuzzy and warm.
>the extremely long voyage down the river
It's only one fucking book
I kid. There's like no conflict in it besides Lawrence+Holo relationship stuff, which could understandably be boring
This news takes the pain out of having the last English novel shipping this month.
>Lawrence is set to eventually pass away from old age, leaving long-living Holo and Myuri behind.
>They probably find new traveler and form oyakodon relationship with him.
Rather, this can not end well.
Wait, so is this about fun times at the onsen, with Lawrence and family? Because that I could dig, but if it's a spinoff about the daughter adventuring, I'm not sure about that. Prefer to keep Lawrence and Holo as the main characters.
The onsen will continue to be run by Korbo, her daughter and whatever other children she has with Lawrence before his death of old age, they will happily welcome travelers and hear their stories to satisfy their curiosities (perhaps some of the children hook up with travelers), eventually people will notice the same family has been running an inn for multiple generations without aging and will probably burn the place down.
If by ex you mean boyfriend then no she didn't, she was still a virgin till she met Lawrence, as absurd as that sound but you know, Japan purity fags would riot, not that there's anything wrong with that actually.
I don't want to know about whether she fucked the other guy. Holo being a virgin makes sense. Just want to know if there was indeed someone she was romantically involved with before.
Those born immortal will instinctively know how to handle being immortal. Lawrence will grow old and die. But during his life Holo will be his and his alone. She'll grieve and confide in her daughter when it happens, and eventually move on. "Til death do us part"
Since the pagan gods are dying out he really should have made it his duty to create as many halflings as possible.
Imagine being the father of a legacy of children that live for several centuries. Maybe they could even inbreed to keep the fox genes pure.
>That's not the whole set he's missing 16
>Surely this will come out in a timely manner
>The NHK novel there is wort ha fair bit by now.
The owner of RightStuf found a huge cache of them about five years ago in a warehouse somewhere. They were on his Amazon personal account for $30 for a long time. Might still be there.
Hope was never given up.
Was going to make a post about it but this is as good of a time as ever. I'm making another batch of mugs and taking orders. Closing them out come the end of the weekend. Email [email protected] if interested. The more /a/nons who get in the better.
Passed it, but what would happen if it was destroyed?
Sweet, and thank you very much. I have my copy from 2007 but my gf will love to have one.
All she knows they still sell for 70$ +
Very costly to ship international but doable. I keep the mugs at the manufacture price though and only post about it on /a/.
I won't lose hope!
She bought me this so it's only fair.
This is partially my concern about beginning to read them as novels since I've only watched the anime. I worry that the style of writing may not match .
>She bought me this so it's only fair.
Three girlfriends since 2010 have bought my S&W novels. The only one that means anything is the first one who wrote in a note about wearing ears if I wanted a 3D Horo.
Can we stop drawing Lawrence as a sickly old man though? Can someone draw /fit/ Lawrence?
How long until tail surgery becomes a thing and this can become real?
>even though I've stopped buyfagging from being jobless, I'd gladly go in debt to get her.
Anon, have you not learned anything from watching this show? I mean, unless you have some cunning plan involving gold smuggling to take care of your debt or something.
I think the manga is ending soon, everyone should give it a read. It's 2-page spread and blush porn. Holo way cuter than in the anime too.
>The owner of RightStuf found a huge cache of them about five years ago in a warehouse somewhere. They were on his Amazon personal account for $30 for a long time. Might still be there.
Is that the seller "shawnek-rightstuf"? They're still up as New.
Holo mentions to the lonely halfling who outlived his wife to "Just find another mate already" and there's been a few implications that Lawrence and Holo have had that chat before.
I think Lawrence is just determined to make the most of the time he has and be the best he can be for Holo. He's pretty much dedicated his entire life to building a massive fuckoff hotsprings Inn in the mountain near her home so she'll be comfy and never be lonely
Magudala was fine, a little confusing at times, but I'd expect that from the author of S&W.
I especially like how the MC made his friend try to rape the loli so that he could save her and she would become emotionally dependent on him.
That's such a bad and overused "muh immortality" cliche is what I'm saying.
It'd be more interesting of you got something like Kurozuka where Holo is going through some crazy shit to keep Lawrence alive through the centuries.
Holo chased a narwhal in her past to try and make a past companion immortal when he was dying.
She's dealt with mortality before, and I think copping out by making Lawrence immortal would dilute the message.
Fucking slut. In the josei version of spice and wolf the immortal wolf's waifu becomes a tree.
Why can't Lawrence become a tree, huh?
Can you exactly point out what parts of the last book she talks about moving on? Finished the book a while ago but the only part I remember of her talking about moving on was when that bird guy came in and Lawrence was just being a jealous fuck about birdman and Holo talking.
Don't even pay attention to NTR posters. They probably think she got gangbanged too.
I am asking it as a serious question though. I remember at some point they do have a talk about what could happen after Lawrence but that's it.
I just need to re-read the series again, it took me 2 months to finish and I felt I rushed through a lot of it
Holo should sit by Lawrence's grave her entire life like the mutt she is.
The manga? I have up to 11 in paper so I'd assume they'll keep that up. What kind of company releases in only digital anyways? That seems like a surefire way to lose your money.
I wish the demographic was older so they could have a scene where Holo and Lawrence take Norah's virginity together.
The manga has some cute shit. One of my favorites is really subtle though
>Lawrence thinks she'll leave him
>Makes this declaration
>Stays conscious just long enough to see her tail slightly wag
>Knows in his heart that she won't leave him and passes out, content with her response
>>Knows in his heart that she won't leave him and passes out, content with her response
That face doesn't look content to me, and he wakes up running around looking for her in a hurry because he thought she was leaving.
A nice thought though.
He smiles and then passes out when he sees her reciprocate his feelings. When he wakes up, of course, his first rational thought is to find Holo for a definitive answer >>139845303 .Seeing her not by his bedside is gonna make him panic no matter what her response was.
I think a better question is where's this guy
Yeah but she also never liked one enough to have a baby with or marry so you know...
She should just have him drink her blood or something. That seems to work for a lot of immortals in my various mangos.
I find it very odd Spice and Wolf doesn't have digital rips on MDKM when stuff that's way more niche does.
>they didn't fuck on the very next page
Dunno. I can make better transparents maybe? That's the only use for it as I can see.
Norah best girl, fuck that slut Korbo.
>tfw I still remember Holo Thread being samefag with Anon From Jacksonville
For some reason, I think /k/omrades would be more happy than /a/nons, for this news.
Ookami to Koushinryou: Spring Log prologue:
He slowly approached the altar and sat next to the coffin.
There, lying in a bed of flowers, was a face that even now he suspected might be gently snoring if he listened closely enough.
"Who would ever have thought that I would be the one attending your funeral service..."
Lawrence gently stroked the powdered cheek in the coffin as he spoke.
A melancholy bell could be clearly heard tolling from the other side of those doors.
It was, after all, a clear and sunny winter day.
>goddess of fertility
>only one daughter
YOU WANTED A SEQUEL TO SPICE AND WOLF
WELL HERE IT IS FAGGOT
If the entire story ends with her death I'm going to personally find and anally pillage everyone responsible.
Knowing the author this is most certainly
1. A way to generate quick buzz.
2. Some sort of ploy by Holo and Lawrence
Since this is a monthly magazine they need to build a cliff hanger to get people to buy the next issue. I guarantee Holo isn't dead. I'm not saying I like this as a plot point since it's cheap and manipulative, but I know why they did it.
Holo ain't dead boiz
>Holo's constant complaining and moodiness finally sets in on Lawrence
>He can't take anymore, he's tried everything to push her away but she won't leave
>Bitch be cray
>Murders her, makes it look like an accident
>Even attends her funeral
What if Lawrence wants to embrace his daughter's "wolf heritage" out of respect to Holo and decides to fuck her because she looks similar to her mother, as male wolves typically do with their daughters in nature?
It's all a ruse, right. She's merely pretending, right? The night after the burial Laurence and their daughter dig her back up and she's perfectly fine, right?
I don't know why I'm laughing but I can't stop
Carefull guys, she's a god, always get some weat in your pocket and she will be back.
Sauce for his translation, in case anyone wanted to confirm:
Copied from http://hasekuraisuna.jp/trial/spicywolf-mag1/
Just checked out the chapter preview.
Calm down, faggots. Chances are she's not dead is 100%. It's the a shocker of an opening passage for sure, but it's probably like >>139850541 said. And these flash-forwards never depict the actual situation with context. Kinda like Brynhildr's first pages.
Yeah it's obviously a ruse by Holo and Lawrence of some kind.
I don't like the whole "fake death" thing as a hook to get readers but obviously it's working judging by everyone's reaction here.
I read moon and I can tell you that the above translation is accurate but you're a moron if you think Isuna would kill off his most popular character in the first chapter of a monthly serialized novel.
How far would you get into Spice and Wolf as Lawrence before you tried to fuck her and blew the whole thing?
I hope he makes his daughter attend her mother's fake funeral as a hilarious prank.
>tfw humanity lost all technology
>back to stone age
>be a merchant
>travel with fertility goddess
This is not a Ruse.
Lawrence has no reason to fake Holo's death because both of them are still young and not even senior citizen status yet.
They also live in a rural area near the mountains.
They don't live near an area with a high population at all much less anywhere near a church.
>she heards story of her parent travels, and hope to experienced the life of the outside world one day.
She means getting a big black alpha wolf fuck her and having a grey-haired faggot cuck of a man to raise her children for him. Like mother like daughter.
Looks like the shepherd got the last laugh after all.
I probably never would try. Let me tell you something younger folks... I'm in my late 30s, and now my sex drive is nearly down to zero. In alot if ways I think back to my earlier days and all the raging hormones and torment and think "whew glad that's over". Never had a love actually. Very wealthy, love to travel and Holo would be a nice conpanion. (Though Liru would be nicer in reality)
Anyways, just to let all you young pups know, if you wait long enough, it all goes away and doesn't feel so bad. In fact, it clears your mind to enjoy other things.
If you really are, then that is very surprising. You at least must of noticed a drop in libido? I'm actualy quite happy I don't get lovesick and feel those gut wrenching feelings anymore. I enjoy their company though.
I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THIS.NOT AFTER I`VE FINALLY FOUND A GOOD WAIFU.NOT AFTER I ORDERED THE DAKI.
Just look how sad her husband looks
I really hope this is not the truth but....
Could it be becaus some purity fag readers can't take the fact that holo may have previous lovers and could find another love after Lawrence death if she want to so the author kill her off
Did the novels/mangas ever show you when they have their first sex ? I was under the impression it was all tease all the way to the end.
I wonder how many anons are crying now that their waifu is dead.
>yfw you realize Lawrence doomed Holo by mating with her and having her bear his child because she stops being immortal
That would go a long way towards explaining why there aren't lots of immortal deities running around everywhere.
I hope it's a part of some kind of plan to ruse some merchant or the Church.
>people believing she really died
Look at these gullible fucks. I'm pretty sure Hasekura doesn't want to kill his new series right out of the gate.
Listen anon, I wouldn't be able to take it if it was true either, but its just too far of a stretch to think he'd just kill off the main reason people ever read this story. So relax my man, I believe we have very little to fear here.
Is it even possible for her to die?
>It should be the reverse situation.
What a absolute madman.
Maybe this will actually become a good version of Usagi Drop
>not having lawrence as a role model
>not becoming a better
in scheming and economyperson
No fucking way
Did the author know all along?
They told me suicide was painless, time to test that idea.
>Spice and wolf
>wolf dies in the prologue
this is weekly capeshit "THIS ISSUE: SUPERMAN DIES!" tier bait
hey guys how do i wake up from a dream? im sure im stuck in it cause i think i just saw holo in a coffin. Can any1 wake me up?
Meanwhile, Horo's lying on a coffin full of smuggled gold.
Pretty much this.
Come on /a/ you're smarter than this
Horseshit, you only do that with stories about scumbags.
The only stories where they kick off with (likable) main character obviously about to die/in a coffin, are those where they ultimately don't fucking die.
