Product Description

Once upon a time, the studio behind Toradora! and Shakugan no Shana created a fable-minded story full of fairy tale tomfoolery, attractive archetypes, allusions to allegories, parodies of para…ugh, enough alliteration! You get my drift…

Ryoko Ōkami, the “wolf” of our story, and her BFF Ringo, also known as Little Red Riding Hood, are members of Otogi Bank—a high school club that helps classmates out of grim situations. One day, a meek young man proclaims his love to Ryoko, who does nothing but bite him in return. “You’re much too weak for me,” she huffs. So the boy joins Otogi Bank to prove he has the stuff to protect his beloved—even if it means taking a blow to the head with a lead pipe. He’s no Prince Charming, but will Ryoko allow herself to have her own happily ever after?

Based on the series of light novels by Masashi Okita, the teen adventure-comedy Okami-san and Her Seven Companions (2010) plays off various Western fairy tales, albeit obliquely. At the center of the series is Ryoko Okami, a sort of distaff Big Bad Wolf, who helps run the Otogi Bank, a student organization that grants wishes--on the condition that they be returned someday. The exceedingly shy Ryoshi is hopelessly smitten with Ryoko: like countless other anime swains, he vows to protect her. His heartfelt affection feels misplaced as Ryoko has all the charm of a spitting cobra, and needs about as much protection. She fights with cat-faced boxing gloves that deliver an electronic jolt; Ryoshi's principle weapon is a slingshot and steel pachinko balls. They and the rest of the Otogi Bank group fight with the thuggish kids from Onigashima High, a name that plays off oni, the Japanese word for "demon." When Ryoshi charges into a fight and saves one of their mutual friends, Ryoko sniffs, "I guess every screw-up has at least one redeeming quality." At times, Okami-san plays like an off-kilter version of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, but Ryoko lacks Haruhi's upbeat enthusiasm. The filmmakers attempt to juggle the various story elements, playing fairy-tale references and fan-service humor against explicit violence and suggestions of sexual abuse, but they never achieve a satisfying tone. The results are like watching a driver shift a manual transmission while barreling down the freeway. (Rated TV 14: violence, violence against women, suggested rape, profanity, brief nudity, risqué humor, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

    It is one of the best short single season shows released within the last few years.

    The show brings in characters from a variety of fables and stories. The most prominent is Red Riding Hood, The Big Bad Wolf, and the hunter who hunts the wolf. Each character is recreated into a modern day anime counterpart. It's story centers around the Big Bad Wolf, Okami-san. The companions and friends make up a sort of school mafia organization. They take jobs and handle student problems to earn favors which they can then call in later at anytime they want. The school itself is then part of a larger group which owns the city. The concept of a feudal society mixed with mafia tones in how things run, is very prominent.

    Characters themselves are more akin to generic anime in style and presentation. There is the weak guy, the tough girl, and the schemer...along with all the other common threads like the fan service character/etc. But the interactions of these characters, coming from their fable roots, brings a degree of freshness to the anime that gives it a step above others. Each character has well designed backgrounds and some are very rich. When you recognize who these characters are referencing, you will see new life being breathed into the classic storybook characters.

    This is a series that will leave you wanting a second season, but for the most part, it does come to a decent stop point at the end. Art style is good and the voices are excellent. The Amazon page lists it currently as Japanese language, but the actors listed and the fact that it is Funimation means it could have an English dub. Hopefully it is a decent dub if there really is one. It is hard to imagine this show done in English. The personalities are so key to characters like Ringo or Okami.

    This series is adorable! I had heard about it being an alright series when it was out in Japan so I thought I would give it a shot and it was far better then I was expecting. The characters are all so cute, I love the art style and the show has tons of funny scenes to keep the viewers laughing while enjoying the plot. The series itself tries to mix up all the famous fairy tails all mixed into one anime series like Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty, The Rabbit and the Turtle, The Three Little Pigs, Hansel and Gretel, and many more. The main characters in the series are Ryouko Ookami playing the role of the big bad wolf, Ringo Akai playing the role of little red riding hood, and Ryoushi Morino playing the role of the hunter who hopelessly falls in love with the big bad wolf. Ringo and Ryoushi play Ryouko's two main sidekicks with Ryouko as the main heroine of the film, the other characters serve as supporting characters in a business that they work for called the Otogi Bank. The Otogi Bank is a student organization that grants favors to students on the condition that the favor would be returned someday. Some of the favors that they get asked to do include playing the role of matchmaker, beating up rival school gangs, and setting up some contest. As the story progresses we see that the main character Ryouko starts to open up to Ringo and Ryoushi more and the audience starts to learn more about why Ryouko was so afraid to let people become too close to her and why she didnt want anyone to find out more about her past. I wasnt completely satisfied with the ending because it leaves some things unresolved but I will be eagerly awaiting a second season if the creators decide to make one.Read more ›

    The obnoxious loud British fantasy voice sounding narrator makes this anime basically unwatchable. Every time I started getting into the story she'd make some asinine comment about the female character's lack of breasts or something equally pointless. She's constantly undermining the story and making fun of the characters. If they were going for funny it just came off as annoying. It's like going to a movie and having to sit next to someone who talks really loud and has to keep up a running commentary the whole time. I was going to rate this 1 star but I gave it 2 because I felt the rest of the anime had promise, however I couldn't finish it because the narrator got so annoying. I would recommend previewing at least the first episode on youtube or Funimation's website BEFORE buying this to see if you like it.

    Ookami-san and her 7 companions isn't particularly remarkable as series go. J.C. Staff brings top shelf production quality and the character design is fun if a little cliche (a fake loli, perpetual maid, moe mad scientist, super tsundere and a relatively weak-sauce but surprisingly solid male lead).

    The story follows the members of the Otogi Bank, a mutual help association that does favors for favors - helping people out with certain requests and asking for their help at a later date. It's here that Morino-kun comes on the scene, confessing his affection for Ookami-san, the titular lead. Through a series of adventures the two try working out a troubled but ultimately sweet relationship.

    The series plays off a number of fairy tales. Ookami-san (wolf) is Akai-san's (red, as in little red riding hood) best friend. Then there is Shirayuki-hime (Snow White) who has seven siblings. And so it goes. It makes for a fun backdrop.

    One has to hope [POSSIBLE SPOILERS IMMANENT!!!] this is a first installment (though i haven't checked, recently, on plans for another season) as a number of central storylines remain unresolved: Ookami still hasn't told Morino about her past, Shirou is still at large with Rikkun's threat hanging over his head, etc. And "I don't dislike him" is hardly sufficient relational development.

    Overall, the series is enjoyable but not a must see. It resembles (and even has a brief cameo by the cast of) A Certain Scientific Railgun in many ways. A group of cute characters running around having fun little adventures. I liked it well enough.

    One thing i forgot to mention. It is really annoying that the narrator and characters talk over each other the entire show. While i like the narration, the subtitles become atrociously hard to follow.
