The story continues as Holo and Lawrence make their way towards Yoitsu, Holo's homeland. Where the first season focused on the budding, flirty relationship between Holo and Lawrence, this season finally admits it outright. It does not, however, forget the economics and intelligence that made it such a charming series.
The first season had intriguing plots about different currencies and the principles of economics applied on a large scale. This season continues that, to a degree, but the episodic nature of the first season is not maintained. The story of season two is more cohesive throughout. Without spoiling anything, the relationship between Holo and Lawrence takes the forefront, while Holo's continuing education and intuition regarding the laws of economics is also portrayed. Indeed, though Lawrence is the alleged expert in the field, Holo's scheming and discretion is what saves the day on more than one occasion. Imagine the suspense of a battle anime, like Naruto or Bleach or Hajime no Ippo, only the battleground is the world of money, coercion and intrigue.
The dubbing Funimation employed for the first season was very well done, and as always the set will include the original Japanese dub for those who enjoy subtitles. The recent development of anime on Blu-ray will ensure that the series looks as good as it possibly can as you watch, and while this series is not the most beautiful anime around, it is certainly not poorly drawn.Read more ›
Most of Season Two is taken up with a powerful lesson in how commodities markets work. Whoever wrote this series has worked in the commodities market and understands their flucuations in exquisite detail.
Strong characters, detailed plot with solid real-world foundation, beautiful artwork. "Spice and Wolf" is more than great anime. It is great literature.
when i heard spice and wolf 2 was coming out dubbed after i saw it subbed i couldnt wait and i thought no matter what i am buying it to support the show and be behind it 100%
spice and wolf III is next i hope <3
If you want to know why I personally don't think it's as good as season one, it's because Horo is not in it as much.
Seriously. There are far too many instances of Lawrence going around and doing his own thing, to the point where by the final episodes, you almost roll your eyes - I think there might be one or two episodes where Horo practically does not even speak a single line, because the story is so focused on Lawrence and his side of their difficulties.
That being said, the anime's quality in itself has not diminished in any sense, and this season does have a couple of very beautiful scenes...it's just that I'm personally not very happy with the things the story was focused on at times. It's like, who even watches Spice and Wolf to see Lawrence? Seriously.
There are also a couple really interesting characters that are introduced in this season, but regrettably, they don't get as much screen time as I would personally have liked, and instead, the story focuses on the more annoying or uninteresting characters and their influence on the story.
Finally, the ending for this specific season feels a bit too abrupt and even anti-climatic.Read more ›
Anyways, this series (2nd season or 1st) isn't for everyone. It's different in its own way. In that fact people who think outside the anime box should be the ones to review this, not who they just had review it, this soloman guy. I've never seen an anime like this before, and now I'm glad I did. It's not easy to describe, but it is a great watch if you have the mental capacity to enjoy an anime that tells a story at its own pace. And my god, for goodness sake--if a wolf-girl shows up, naturally she's going to be naked---so why did this guy have an issue with that? sheesh...It was craftfully done and in good taste. Some anime has some strange concepts---I'll never understand the whole panty shots----sadly, not even Bleach has escaped that---I've just came across a scene in bleach where the soul reapers are on wako mundo and one of the bounts is obsessed with seeing this one girl's panties. So seriously, the nudity done in this spice and wolf show is artfully done and not for shock factor. What a prude this guy must be. He probably even bathes in a swim suit.
As for the second season, I feel that anyone who has seen the first will enjoy it. This is a story, not a battle anime that will have wars and giant magical explosions and huge swords etc etc. This second series continues to tell a enjoyable story and I'll try and inform more people about this anime. After season 2, this still remains one of my favorite anime which can hold its own for just being what it is, a great story to enjoy.

This is a very unusual take on Romance anime combined with business administration. The story is well thought out. The artwork is acceptable and the over-all feel is good. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Amazon Customer
