Well, Spice and Wolf is quite a difficult novel to read. Holo's form of speech is very unusual and can be very hard to understand sometimes.

I meant it more in the 'you have the novel in your hands and can potentially enjoy it' manner and not the grind of the translation

I can't understand a word of written Japanese so I'm stuck waiting for it, which is likely to take a painful 6 or so years.

I found it fairly easy to read Holo's form of speech as I talk and write in a similar way.

POSSIBLE SPOILER

I'm not sure if any of you have seen the cover of the last volume (or maybe 16) of the light novels but it's pretty apparent what happens to Holo and Lawrence judging by what Holo is wearing

It seems Lawrence is going to be a busy man....and his question to Dianna about pagan gods and humans mating might be answered

When it comes to normally speaking, yes. I am the odd one out of everyone I know. When it comes to writing, hand-written, yes, I do, but usually for the Internet not so much. When writing stories most times I do as well. It is hard sometimes though, trying NOT to speak like that around my friends or random bystanders. It makes for a bad first impression... Most times.

Bad first impression... no way! If only my girl knew Oiran kotoba, she'd be more awesome than she already is!

The Oiran kotoba is the cutest, sexiest style of speech!

I wish. Around my area everyone is a wanna be gangster, so acting more than just a little out of place and you get jumped.

It is why I do not speak out every word and use the old time speak. >_> It sucks.

I could see how it would be a very bad situation in "wannabe gansta land" if you were male in parts of Michigan ...

Smile Thanks for the spoilers

I stumbled on the Spice and Wolf anime a couple weeks ago on Netflix. It only took a couple episodes before I was hooked. When I ran out of season one episodes I found season two on the web. Looking forward to the rest of the story I found... nothing new. There were the light novels on Amazon but with only four of seventeen available I wasn't ready to go down that road both because I don't want to wait years to know how the story ends and for fear that they may decide not to publish them all anyway. So I searched the web and found this site.

I've read the entire S&W thread here and if I should die before all the books come out at least I have some idea of where the story went. With that, who know, I might buy the available English translations or I might wait. But I appreciate what I have read here so far and will continue to follow this forum.

So thanks y'all!

Very nice. I came in here a couple months ago and read from page like 75 to now, haha. The only thing to complete my life now would be to read every book... Which means several years of waiting.

In some ways Holo makes me think of some of the heroic female animal/human characters from the science fiction of Cordwainer Smith, most especially C'Mell & D'Joan.

Anyways welcome to the pack (wolf pun, heh).

So far I've tried to avoid reading spoilers, but on some occasions I peeked at a few of them. I don't know all of how it ends but I can tell it's at least on a good note :]

Must.....wait.......

You're younger than me. You can afford to wait.

This reminds me of the literal years we spent waiting to have the motives of the Vorlon and Shadows explained in Babylon 5.
