No, it really isn't hard to define what a spoiler is. If the light novels were a subforum and we could have separate threads for each chapter or volume, it'd be easier to handle.

But you can't assume that everyone who walks into a single threaded discussion has read as far as you. Therefore, all that is needed is a spoiler enclosure titled with something like "only for those who've read past chapter 3" or "volume 4 spoilers". Not hard....

The Spoiler Policy for the forum is pretty easy to transmogrify for light novels and manga -- and it really helps with titles limited to a single thread.

Sorry....my spoiler was really more of a joke on the label, not the content.....^_^

But yeah, I think actually having a novel forum, with sublinks for chapters/volumes would be a great idea....but I do kind of like how we can post everything together under "Translation" and "Discussion." I think it keeps us together a bit more, even if it makes the project a bit more unorganized....But anyway we should at least properly label spoilers. Understood ^_^

Ah...so VEXING... ^_^

I know everyone's dying to see Horo again.

Trust me, the last chapter won't disappoint.

Hmm, knowing Horo, she'll probably act like nothing happened.

That'd be pretty rough . Somehow I'm having higher expectations for it though.

well, i think there would some thing like a romantic make up, which will suddenly be interrupted by Horo's sarcastic remarks or teasing or smth in the art, since she is a wise and proud wolf, I doubt she will be sentimental for very long ^_^

Although the first bit of chapter 5 is out, and I feel I should be posting on it, there really isn't anything to say about it. Anyone else have anything to offer?

Yeah there isn't too much to say there. Really just getting you started with the final stretch.

Yeah...not too much, but hey, what about that little boy you know?

He has a little bit of wanting to be a knight in him...reminds me a bit of Amati. Does make you wonder though, he seems so dependable and stuff...could someone like that turn out to be the kind of knight that Lawrence first met in Volume 1? Where he was sort of rude, pretending everyone should know him...etc. When Volume 3 specifically says he's not used to people knowing his name...^_^ You think this lad will become a knight? Traveling Merchant? Wheat Vendor, etc?

Some speculation regarding Spice and Wolf's (eventual) end

Does anyone else feel that Spice and Wolf is building up towards a bittersweet parting between Horo and Lawrence?
Spoiler for Contains dramatic developments beyond Vol 3 which you might not want to know:

Much as I would like them to live happily ever after, I see them "parting with smiles" at the end of the series

Any thoughts on this?

FRIGGIN CARP!!! I FRIGGIN CLICKED IT....WHY DID I FRGGIN CLICK IT!!!!

Luckily I only read what happens at the end of Volume 5....but that coupled with your earlier observation....waaaaaaaaaa

Then again....how could a Wolf Diety that can live for ages, and a human, who's life passes by so quickly...ever be together.....the only thing I can hope for is:

1) Lawrence finds a way to become immortal ^_^
2) Horo finds a way to give up her longevity

There is of course the possibility of them being together...who knows....but if so....I can't even begin to imagine the sadness Horo would go through after Lawrence dies of old age...I can't even begin to grasp it....perhaps the best answer is simply that in the end, they will somehow part...Lawrence's story being told for generation upon generation by Horo....

I hate to admit it, but the only way I see the story ending is through their permanent separation, or at least them never becoming a "couple."

That's how Miyazaki ended "Princess Mononoke" anyway...In the end, it was a heartfelt ending, but San said she could never trust humans, which was her rejection of Ashitaka, then Ashitaka pretty much said then "okay" but he'll visit occasionally to say hello....I hope that's not what we get from Spice and Wolf ^_^

I really want them to be able to live on the same time-frame, living their life together.....

Very few couples die at the same time anyway. Why should Lawrence and Horo?
