Can it be? An anime-original dvd-only filler fanservice episode? It can! And this justifies me blowing a stupid amount of money on importing the DVDs somehow, I think. :l

Horo's thirsty, eh? For what?

I just loved how holo announced her re-apperance, just like a "Sophisticated" demi-goddess should.

I don't think it is in the novels. I may be wrong, though.

btw, as for ep8 what volume of the novel is this from? are we still on the 1st one or they've move on to the next?

So it would seem. I have watched a few other series raw between then and now though. Thanks for the explanation, herbert.

Last night, I watched episode 2 again. I'd forgotten that Lawrence said he'd been attacked by wolves 7 times during his travels; that in the flashback we saw, Lawrence see his companion eaten by a wolf pack; that he is still very traumatized by the memories.
Spoiler for ep 6:

You'll still get EP 7 as soon as the DVD is released. That might be a while, months actually, but at least you'll have something to look forward to instead of a bleak existence without Spice and Wolf until some genius in Japan notices it was awesome and asks for a second season.

I'm guessing (okay, not really guessing, but you know) that EP 7-12 are all part of the second novel. There's seven novels out now. Seven! WE NEED MORE SEASONS.

No reason was given why EP 7 is being skipped, but I think there's two of them:

1. It's an anime-original episode and may not have been written very well.
2. They may want to boost DVD sales and thus they put a special episode on one of the DVDs, prompting people to buy them to watch it.

That's all I've got, cap'n.

Suite yourself I figure that it's just a little reunion episode and is only their to boost the sells of the DVDs...Besides I know you won't be able to stay away.

Yeah I'd assume that episode 7 is something anime original. Doubt they would actually take something important to the plot out of the series and put it only on the DVD. Will just have to wait and see what that one turns out to be.

Really is too bad this series will be so short. With so many novels out there this show demands more.

and btw
I wanna really buy the novel now lol:P

is any of the novel is being "subbed" to english?
or is there any novel that's translated to english out there?

to me the anime is still kinda too fast.
but surely sometimes people finds it boring to watch if it is in slower pace

You can buy the novels from YesAsia and Amazon.co.jp and other sites.

In this episode, the letter at the end drew my attention. On the back it says "Eine Rechnung". That's german for "a bill". It seems the anime is set in some sort of feudal Germany.

That figure isn't as awesome as it should be, but the novels and OST are.

It's not really set anywhere in the real world.

None of the novels out are in English. No one's even liscensed Spice and Wolf in America. The novels, the manga, the anime, nothing. It may never come Stateside. I wouldn't mind. Baka-Tsuki is working on translating the novels for fun and "learning purposes". Moob-manga is doing the manga. Google.

I bought the only Horo-related tshirt available on HLJ.com, so I'm just as hopeless as you are, lol. I just have standards. That figure doesn't meet them. Perhaps I'll cave and get it sooner or later, but right now I'm being very tsun-tsun towards it. As for the OST, I've only heard as much of it as you have through the anime. I have it preordered from CDJapan though, and the ED and OP are in the mail and coming in my direction (hopefully).


Anyhow, back to episode 6...
