The second season of the fantasy-adventure Spice and Wolf (2009) picks up where the first one left off: with merchant Craft Lawrence and Holo, the ancient wolf-spirit who takes the form of a beautiful young woman, wandering through a world that resembles Renaissance Europe. Their ultimate goal is Holo's home village of Yoitz in the far north, but no one knows exactly where it is or if it still exists. It's not clear why Lawrence is so devoted to Holo: she insults him, fusses at him, spends his money, and gets drunk. But he apparently enjoys being a doormat. Most of the season is devoted to two story lines, one involving a scheme to exploit the inflated price of iron pyrite (fool's gold) in the town of Kumersun; the second centers on an unsavory fur-trading deal. The stories are very, very talky with only minimal action, and the filmmakers cut corners, reusing backgrounds and animation. The ending suggests a third season may be in the works: Lawrence and Holo are only slightly closer to their goal than they were at the beginning, and the myth that the "Moonhunting Bear" destroyed Yoitz could be developed further. There's lots of gratuitous fan-service nudity of Holo, and her furry ears and tail leave the viewer with the unsettling feeling that Spice and Wolf is aimed at adolescent furries. (Rated TV 14: nudity, violence, alcohol use, risqué humor, potentially offensive religious imagery) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

The journey through the wild countryside continues for the merchant Lawrence and his traveling companion, Holo, the untamed harvest goddess. As their winding path takes them from village to village, Lawrence and Holo reap the bounty of an ever-strengthening bond, depending on his street smarts and her animal instincts to lead them to the feisty deity’s northern home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still nothing to dislike. May 21, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
It is fantastic that Funimation has decided to release the second season of the brilliantly calm Spice and Wolf. Coupled with their re-issue of the first season on blu-ray, the two sets will look beautiful both next to each other on your shelf and on your television.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very In-depth/loveable series May 30, 2011
By Kyle
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Whether its the anime, novel or manga, the Spice and Wolf series is just something so unique and different in its own way. Some may not like it, everyones perspective varies. But if you're a fan of anime, it's absolutely something you should look into and see if it might spark an intrest in you, it sure did in me. Watching the anime on Netflix made me buy it on DvD, and also the books which I am very pleased with(considering I never read haha). I'm very happy to see the second season available now, and hope they keep it going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Completely brilliant! December 4, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Season Two starts off slow, but picks up speed starting with the third episode. Then it turns out the slow portion was in fact, highly detailed setup and foreshadowing that reaches clear back into the last couple episodes of Season One.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this series! August 24, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'm really happy that Funimation has finally announced that they are still going to release this season, I was scared that they dropped it and we would never get it. I really hope that they release just a DVD version because I don't have a Blu-Ray player and I don't want to pay more for something I wont use, if they don't end up doing that then I will definitely get this version.

5.0 out of 5 stars I cant wait for Season 3. November 4, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Was almost as good as the first season. However this one does have a bit less action. However since that is not what spice and wolf is about i cant dock any points for that. But overall its what you would expect from spice and wolf.

The last episode ending was not very good IMO... left it feeling open. However it only covers books 3 and 4. if i remember correctly. but their are 16 novels so their is a lot more that happens after this series... Now if that gets put on DVD or blu ray is up to them. After volume 6 these is not even a English volume released yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well enjoyed! September 27, 2011
By Michael
Format:Blu-ray
*First, a quick observation on the cost and why I am a loyal pre-order buyer now* I pre-ordered this set----and I'm glad I did----its crazy how anime prices can fluctuate! It started out at a $60 pre-release, then dropped to the high $30 range when I got mine, and now its back up to above $60? All in a short time of less then 2 months...crazy....Makes me glad I always pre-order!

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.
