Saw the episode. It delved mostly with Horo. Horo was extremely cute. Two tease screenshots to have the fan of this show salivate uncontrollably... :heh:


Horo's playfulness mixed with her shrewdness what attracted me to this series. Lawrence's general awareness of his surrounding (and the lack of it in the matters of Horo) also helped. Those aspect of the show was highlighted in this episode. I enjoyed it very much. :)

Does anyone know where in the stoy this takes place? I watched the raw (didnt understand obviously) but i cant place it. Is it following the Light Novels? I remember seeing somewhere that it has something to do with "Wolf and Amber Melancholy" chapter of Vol 7. of the Light Novels. Or is this just a Teaser anime addon thing...? Ive read up to where Baka-Tsuki Translated up to and some of the Images dont match up.

hehe a rather cute OVA I thought, Horo just being a spoiled little princess:D
especially near the end, when she lights up with lawrence coming into the room but then finds Nora there, shes all down again:heh:

RayzorFang 2009-04-30 16:05

Hmm? I seem to be the first in rating it, anyway i gave it a 9
The fact that they changed some bits from the original novel and because in my opinion they made Horo more cute than needed that changed her character from season 1 stopped me from giving it a 10.
I watched the raw but having listened to the radio drama and reading the translation of vol 7 from BT i understood 90%. It felt so good watching this, i've forgotten how much i enjoy S&W. The animation was superb and the nose thing that i had been fussing over didn't really feel that big when i watched it. I can tell the VA's are getting back into their personalities and they did a great job.
I hope this episode does not reflect the seriousness of the next season because even though i enjoyed the various additions such as the Lawrence pointing, Horo's head bump, "heavy" blankets; i much prefer the actual story to be more serious especially for the next two volumes of the series.
All in all welcome back Okami to Koushinryou!!!

It's placed close to the end of Season 1, around the time Horo and Lawrence and Nora are all still in the same town and have a bit of cash to throw around.

Ahh Horo was so cute and lovable as always. I can't wait for July to come around.

Ashlotte 2009-05-02 10:57

Well that was an easy reminder of why I thought during S1 that Horo was one of the most endearing female characters I'd seen in anime or any other form of media for that matter...Just lovely.

Hoping this is a good sign of what S2 may bring. ;)

Is the BSS subs entitled Spice and Wolf II 00 that's been floating around part of the pre-season 2 OVA? Some people claim it's the first episode of of season 2 but I don't want to download it yet until I confirm what it is...

yea that would be the OVA, I just watched it. Don't know if its just me or not but didn't look all that good in quality but meh Horo's uber cutensess makes up for it:p

jealous Horo = win!!!

Jay911 2009-05-02 14:38

Yeah, the BSS release is the "episode 0" OVA. Many LOL moments in this for me, but animation/art changes drop it to an 8 IMO.

Have to see if it "grows on me" in the new season.

itisjustme 2009-05-02 15:29

The opening sequence kinda annoyed me, didn't like the new Horo design compared to first season, (understandably) low production values, seemed to be milking Horo's cuteness to the last drop. Hrm.

Some funny moments though, and the first scene reminds me of threesomes where you always get someone who feels left out. :p

7/10

Malkuth 2009-05-02 17:33

9/10

It certainly invoked the atmosphere I came to love from the first season, but this time Horo has just set a new standard in moe :heh:

Nice lead-in to the new season.

Solafighter 2009-05-02 17:49

Cute and funny episode. :cool:

Looking forward to the second season of Spice and Wolf. :)

Littm 2009-05-02 19:16

Rather good episode. I'll give it 8 out of 10. They changed studio, but old team worked really well and this time. It has the same atmosphere and pace like the previous season. Nothing changed and this is really good.

Nothing unusual or specific in this episode, but it was interesting. Just another small piece from daily life of our heroes.

Yeah the music was a pain for my ears.
However this OVA was fun :D

wandering-dreamer 2009-05-02 21:16

I have a question, in the opening sequence, are the shots with all the words the credits? At first I thought it was saying something important and was worried that I was watching a RAW but now I'm not so sure...
Anyway, I didn't like the OVA as much as I liked the last season. The characters just felt, awkward. Although Horo was very cute, I need to find a RAW version later so I can get screenshots without the mountains of text.

Ryuou 2009-05-02 21:21

The OVA was fun and funny, but I also hope it's not a precursor to the tone that season 2 will take. I doubt it will be though.

So can we take this OVA as main story development? Even the dream sequences? (Since they're essentially Horo's thoughts.) I'm just wondering if we can take what's developed/revealed as set in stone, and something that won't be turned back.

@ wandering-dreamer - Yeah those are credits. So don't worry.

Xacual 2009-05-02 21:23

This OVA is based on one of the side stories in volume 7, Wolf and Amber Melancholy I think it is. So yeah this is canon main story development.

Lad ... I was also surprised by the musical score , but it fits perfectly the medieval/renaissance era ;)
