As a random newbie, I have a question regarding the series.

I currently own the only three available Spice and Wolf light novels. Before discovering the books, I watched the anime all the way through.

Onto my question.

The first three novels cover the entirety of season one. However, I see that there are actually thirteen more volumes that haven't been released. Do the novels stretch beyond the end of the anime, or is the plot just stretched out across the remaining thirteen books?

I haven't read the novels personally, but my understanding is that the second season did not cover all of the material currently available in the novels.

Ah! I see.

...

...that means I'll have to wait years just to read the full story, since they're releasing a new novel every six months.

DAMMIT!

Season one covered volumes 1 and 2, season two covered 3 and 5 (4 was skipped). The OVAs were chapters from side stories such as in volume 7.

The official English-translated novels are up to volume 3, and I believe volume 4 is due in June (and subsequent volumes every 6 months after that).

Of course we're all hoping for more seasons of the anime

I just watched Spice and Wolf 2 a few days ago and I was rather confused about the the last episode.
I have a few questions in mind:
Spoiler for Spice and Wolf 2 Episode 12:


So I guess that's it.

Thanks!
For the first question though, based on what you said,
Spoiler for Spice and Wolf Episode 12:


For the second question, can you furthermore explain your first interpration? Although I liked your second theory. (:

Spoiler for Episode 12 Spice and Wolf 2:


Sorry, A bit slow here. >_>

You're not being slow. I'm pretty sure I'm getting it wrong, but it's still good fun.

I got kind of confused at the dialogue but I think it's a little more clear now. I just wanna clarify some things up.

Spoiler for Dialogue at Pier:

Spoiler for Ending:

I got kind of confused at the dialogue but I think it's a little more clear now. I just wanna clarify some things up because I didn't really pay attention to the economics stuff and all because I got bored of the dialogues, I gotta re watch the whole season 2 or just the half-end part..

Spoiler for Dialogue at Pier:


Spoiler for Ending:

I am sorry if my questions are too confusing to answer, I'm really sleepy right now, so I can't put it in a more understandable format. >_>

I'd suggest waiting for the Funimation dubs if you're patient.. they might clear up just how much of what I'm guessing is nonsense, though I have no idea how long it will be before those are done (we might have the fifth novel by then).

BashZeStampeedo I guess I just need to re watch the half end of season 2, since the dubs aren't available yet, do you have any recommendation with good subs?

Also +rep for you, you really helped. Thanks!

Can't really give recommendations out loud since the series is licensed (see Forum Rules). But there's one group that's been around a long time that does consistently decent work on most of their series without being goofballs.

Spice and wolf : volume 1 special dust cover version

As i understand it, volume 1 with the special dust cover(original japanese artwork) was released to select retailers.

Does anyone have any idea which retailers these are? Amazon does not seem to be one of them.

Are they still printing new issues of volume 1 using the western cover or did they switch back to the japanese one after the first run?

Its really strange how they managed to draw an original artwork for volume 1 that made it look like a trashy sex novel.

These questions are answered in the Spice&Wolf subforum threads about merchandise, manga, and light novels. The dust cover of volume 1 is the "trashy sexy" (as are the rest) and the original artwork is on the book itself.
