Cute Character....I Like Her Because I love Wolf In Animes .. :)

*second post* :p

Yeah, Horo is funny because she can act immature at times then suddenly know stuff that surprises us. Like business....

Khaos 2008-01-23 15:04

I really love her free and confident nature.
She is what she is, does what she does and isn't ashamed of anything.
She is older and more adult than anyone else, on the same time she kept hold of a child's nature and she also has her weaknesses. She is a complete being and it's so rare and refreshing to see a character like that in an anime.

I think she feels a great loneliness inside, she was bound to that village for a long time far away from her home. And as a god you normally don't have any human friends, so perhaps, this is a new or at least a very rare experience for her.

FlareKnight 2008-01-23 15:21

She really is a great character all around. No doubt she spent quite a long time in that village isolated from being able to interact with people. Since after a time they were just afraid of her and so its hard to have a conversation with a fleeing person.

Maybe not surprising how much she is enjoying herself at times. Being able to talk with someone who knows about you but isn't heading for the hills would have to be nice.

A complete person is a good way to go about describing her. She can be confident, but isn't without weakness and loneliness. Can be pretty eager and childlike, but also serious and regretful. I guess after living such a long time you are able to develop a pretty interesting personality.

You realize its getting tough to take my eyes off your avatar and .sig and actually read the post, eh?

no common sense 2008-01-23 19:08

She is simply too clever for her own good, and her moe level is over 9000!!!

GuidoHunter_Toki 2008-01-23 19:10

There is just an overwhelming amount of Horo pics everywhere.

Her reach and charm is unmatched :). No doubt there will be plenty more sightings of her as the series moves along.

But it is true that she has shown quite a bit of depth right from the start. Already has so much life experience to dwell and rely upon. Just exploring what has happened in her past will be great to follow.

Echoes 2008-01-23 19:47

What I like about Horo so far is that she has shown so much depth in such a short amount of time. She must have spent a lot of time over the centuries developing her character.

At times she's mysterious, enigmatic and dark, while other times she's playful, flirting and downright cute. She gets embarrassed, she makes sarcastic remarks and she frivolously employs both her wit and her charm to get what she wants. Yet the character comes across as consistent, she's not all over the place.

So far, I like Horo a lot, and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Deathkillz 2008-01-24 14:48

"Horo the wise"

She certainly lives up to the name, but what makes her most interesting for me is that the fact that even though she has LOTs of life experience...she is still learning :)

Kinda like a life lesson for all of us, to never stop learning throughout our life time.

You know what I'd really like to see. I would really love it if horo befriending lawrence was just a big ploy. She is always so far ahead of lawrence, as if she is just playing a trick on him or deceiving him (in the 3rd episode alone she showed she knew at least the same amount of info on the trading world, and what's better is she did so when he was explaining it to her). She said something to the affect of, if one is tricked and they realize it, then they should be happy to know that sort of trick exists. Also she said once you realize you've been tricked, its too late to be mad about it. So are her words foreboding? Is she giving lawrence a chance to see thru her? I would love it so much if horo turns out to just be using good ole lawrence.

But it would be strange that someone playing a trick on someone would feel remorse for something they said to the person they were playing a trick on. Unless she feigned the remorse to suck him in...

I don't think she has a big plan for anything. I really do think she just wants to get to her home. She does "use" Lawrence in a sense to get what she wants at times. Like the apples. However she also helps him through that in the fact that he is able to get more coins for the fur.

Grimkill7 2008-01-24 15:21

I agree. Their relationship is nothing short of mutualistic in my eyes.

Kaioshin Sama 2008-01-24 16:00

Horo's character has more depth and sides to it then most characters I've seen in an anime at such an early stage. I expect by the end of it she'll be one of the most memorable characters I have ever seen.

Me too. I have not obsessed over a charter since anthy himamiya. lol, as you see I do not get involved in characters often. So 3 episodes in and horo has ensnared me. I think she might be number one after this season, hell after episode 5 the way things are going.

Vexx 2008-01-24 16:22

All relationships are a mutually agreed "using" of each other for the overall benefit of both. For canines, deceit is a rarely used tool --- usually mostly to ensure the harmony of the pack.

And yes, Horo is in danger of toppling all of my long-standing 'characters of worship' to second tier in the land of japanese popular culture.
I'm scrabbling for another character who comes nearly so close to the complexity of a real person.... not finding it yet.
