So how come people don't smuggle in gold while disguised as priests and sisters?

Because they wouldn't have the credentials. Just saying you're with the church won't guarantee you getting past the customs agents. They're not stupid, you know.

Didn't Lawrence and Horo both get into the Rubenhagen without being searched because they were with Nora and the guards knew her so well?

Yeah I would assume going with Nora would help bypass any serious inspection. That and I'd assume undressing women traveling into the city might have some negative impact on people going to the city. Any time you may be able to explain why they could get Horo in it can go to why don't people smuggle gold that way.

At least in this case it seems Nora could explain why they got in. If they go to other cities where people are being searched as they go in could be troublesome for them. Worst case Horo waits until dark, have Horo jump the walls and take care of it that way.

Some minor plot holes in episode 13 (namely Lemerio Company's idiocy), but an otherwise excellent episode - and series. Looking forward to season 2!

Well if we count each novel as an arc there is plenty left to go through. Only got through the first 2 so far. Novels are still coming out with the 8th one coming next month. So that'd make 6 arcs that could be animated with more on the way.

Guess it all depends on how many episodes they'd want to give for each novel. I'm sure some wouldn't mind each one getting some extra episodes so less could be left out.

It would be great if they came out with another season. I really want to see more and have some of my questions answered.

That's exactly where they're *eventually* headed as they return to their adventures on the road at the end of series. The first season anime series covered the events portrayed in volumes 1 and 2. More adventures happen in volumes 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.... next volume is due out in May.

The series is focused on the journey rather than the destination so much. They've got probably a thousand miles to go in a horse-drawn wooden cart so there's time for many, many adventures and a strong relationship. I suppose when it comes time for the last novel, they will reach the north and the readers will find out how the end-story plays out.

Considering Horo's characteristics I bet after they reach Horo's homeland and meeting her original expectations which will be impossible since she had been away for such a long period, she will make a proposition to Lawrence for the two to head south since she had not seen it.
Horo is the kind of person who enjoys the process not really holding high expectations for the results.

This has been my speculation of a story ending:
that her homeland was decimated by some nastiness. That may have been why her pack originally headed south but she was too young to remember.

They'll eventually get there and she'll discover tragically that there is nothing left for her at all -- she may even start to fade away. Here's the coin flip - Lawrence professes his love for her in the strongest terms; will that be enough to keep her from fading?

If it were a Western author writing the plot, I'd say yes - happy story ending .... but Eastern authors love those bittersweet moments of transience though so I'm not confident of that ending.

However, even if she stays with Lawrence and they live a happy life (like Tri-ring says, the journey is more important than the destination) - after the story ends at some point she'll be alone again and I would suppose at that point she'd choose to fade away ... their relationship passing into memory (rather like the story of Arwen and Aragorn).

All things are impermanent, the longer you live the more clear that becomes.

Oh well, if things don't work out with Horo, Lawrence is sure to look Nora up.

Amusing to see him working on a backup plan in the latter episodes.

I think you're on to something there. Maybe they reach the north and all kinds of drama unfolds but both Horo and Lawrence survive. Perhaps they find something in Yoitsu that makes them rich. They wonder what to do next. Horo suggests going all the way south again, or perhaps east or west. The story continues.

Just saw the whole series and LOVED it! I sure hope a second season comes soon. Out of all the animes I've seen I have to say this one is the best! As far as writing and story goes it was too perfect, even surpassed Haruhi, I was really surprised. Been ordering Horo merchandise all week! ^^

Well I just read the first few post of the thread of this episode and want to defend the idea that Horo was not [straight forward - raped] by the young wolves nor the youthful boss... They may have been just humiliated her verbally, beat her around, nipped at her, or even yearnate on her. I'm not a wolf-psychologist but I've seen enough animal shows of wolves humiliating a lone-wolf (female/male) that way. That's how they show dominance as a pack or to one another.

-If the point was already argued, please just take mine as another opposer to the "perv-theory." (its highly illogical to me.)

Other than that, the series was great. Perfect for an arc.

yeah, that idea was pretty much out of left field and really has nothing to do with wolf pack behavior nor the events in the story. All Horo did was the wolf equivalent of baring her throat to show submission to the local talent.
