A figure would be nice ... her "east european" style outfit with tail and ears perhaps.

Would definitely buy the R1 if it gets licensed.

And Speaking of apples, is it possible that the seven apples represents the Seven Deadly Sins? I listened to the ending song and I realized it when the song goes "With Seven Seeds To Plant Inside Of Me" just wondering if that has a connection?

For some reasons I hope ED is just a cute song without any profound meaning.

Horo is in love with apples, so apples; seven apples make it sound like a fairy song, so seven apples. End of story.

Definitely! I'm more amazed that so many guys like it, but I guess a naked girl is enough to rivet their eyes to the screen. Don't be afraid of that though. It seems entirely appropriate in the context of the show and not fanservice-y at all.

I can vouch that my wife is enjoying the series so far. In her opinion, Horo's attitude and behavior completely crush any "objectification" that being naked might ignite. She just wishes they'd draw Lawrence's back with some anatomy clues ("shoulder lines are all wrong").

I don't know how other guys see this, but for me the nakedness is just a side-effect, let's say a bonus cookie. What makes her so lovable is her personality: Strong, shrewd, cute, wise, independent but also vulnerable and soft (and who knows what more is there since she's a really big wolf)
...well, that and her ears and that marvelous tail.
Very strong moe, can't stop watching at her tail when she's about to eat in ep.2.

Horo's so natural about it... like a wolf, one could say.

There you have it. Testimonials that even though Horo is often stark naked, everyone is only interested in her personality.

Well, whats a wolf need clothing for!

Her nakedness, doesn't really worry me one way or the other. Personally she reminds me of say a cheeky little sister or something. And her attitude seems to reinforce that, but there are the hints of deeper wisdom there. Either way she is so damn... adorable.

Damned smile!

I just found something funny.
In the opening, the scene where the ships are in the background, the wheels of their cart aren't turning.

Since you mentioned apples, I'm sure Ithunna or Idune deserves a mention, since she is the maiden that nurtures the apples that give the Aesir Gods immortality.
ah sorry about butchering the names, was working from memory there.

oh i swore i mentioned Išunn before. oh wait. yes i did.

I was wondering when you were going to drop Kanu for Horo in your sig, I'll probably be doing the same thing sooner than later.

Heh, didn't know this was a multiple choice poll where you couldn't pick 60% of A, 30% of B, and 10% of C. I'll certainly admit from my perspective she's a complete package of adorable ... but then if Lawrence isn't included, her personality has no one to work off of. They are a complementary team.

Hmm, maybe they'll view the church as the villain of the story from Horo and Lawrence's point of view or something since Horo, her status and appearance (i.e ears and tails) is an easy for the inquisition.....?

I agree with majority of people about Horo's nakedness its like an extra service. But what does for me is her playfulness. Sure that tail is awsome and just makes her even cuter naked Horo clothed Horo it all works for me.

Not to say i dont like the nakedness and dont want more nakedness. For gods sake im not priest nor am i dead
