Editorial Reviews

There is an old legend that speaks of a hidden paradise on Earth - a paradise which only wolves can find. And while thought to have been extinct for hundreds of years, wolves indeed still walk the Earth...hidden among mankind. Now, a group of outcast wolves set out to find Paradise: Kiba, Hige, Toboe and Tsume. Each wolf is driven by their own personality and desires, but together they are pursued by humans seeking to quench their own thirst for power. A difficult and long journey lies ahead, with Paradise waiting to be found.

Alright, above I have a video on the packaging for the product and I've already reviewed this anime on IMDB, so I'm going to post the review here and then review the packaging/amazon below it:

*********

I have never been an easy person to please. This series did just that. I do not know where to begin with the series. I marathoned the entire series because I just couldn't stop watching from the beginning. I loved it so much that this is the first review I have written for any movie/show.

This has a very unusual plot line without a doubt, however, I am of the opinion that if the plot had not been as unusual as it was (wolves appearing as humans, searching for paradise) that viewers wouldn't have gotten quite the same feeling from the show, it's sort of hard to describe. I went into this thinking I would be watching an unusual action flick that simply wanted to grab audiences by saying: "look we have wolves in our story!" thinking I would be forced to give up from the awkwardness of having "wolves," and that that the writers wouldn't be able to correctly compensate.
I was, to say the least, extraordinarily surprised.

Throughout the series the characters are truly easy to connect to. They all interlace and mesh, they fit together well, which makes for a great altogether feeling. In the beginning of the series I felt a little bored, but only for a little while. As soon as the second episode ended I was craving for more. The story line is not for everyone, some would get bored with it. However, the fair amount of action coupled with the short (essentially 26 episode) series means that you wont be dealing with monotonous amounts of action. Overall the story is VERY original and definitely interesting, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Wolf's Rain is an anime that describes the adventures of four wolves in a post-apocalyptic setting who can take the shape of human beings to hide from people. The artwork is dazzling: detailed, well-animated wolves running through surreal, futuristic landscapes are breathtaking to watch. The musical score, composed by the deservingly well-reputed Yoko Konno, is haunting and bittersweet. And the plot is a tense, riveting roller-coaster ride, containing touching moments and wise messages too multi-faceted to be summarized in words. I can't remember a story that touched me in the same way Wolf's Rain did.

The four main wolf characters in this story conceal themselves as humans, for they are being hunted by many sinister forces. With the help of a creation known as Cheza, they are searching for a fabled land where they can be free to be themselves again without fear. Their yearning for this place carries them on. Throughout their travels, they encounter many downtrodden and disillusioned characters who appear to have no hope left. The faith the wolves possess is often challenged by such characters, as well as by the undeniable state of the conflicted, war-torn world around them.

Wolf's Rain is not a simplistic idealist's story. It is a dark tale meant for mature audiences, and its intonations of hope are mostly subtle. It contains some violent scenes; the wolves are often beaten into pulps by their adversaries, and sometimes they themselves deal damage to humans. Though we come to care deeply for the main characters as they develop over the course of the story, moments of peace for these characters are few and far-between. The implications of the last episodes are ambiguous, deep, and philosophically far-reaching. Wolf's Rain leaves us with the hope of a better future despite the horrors and pain of current circumstances.

I have to say that after having seen a few episodes of this show randomly on Cartoon Network a while back I was skeptical about what it had to offer. But I will say that after watching the whole series through I changed my mind about it. It had a very original story behind it. A post apocalyptic world where wolves are believed to have been hunted to extinction by the Nobles (a ruling class in the world who still remember some of the old science from before the Apocalypse) because of a story that claims that the door to "Paradise" will only be found by wolves and once they find paradise the world we know will end. However the wolves are not extinct, they just learned how to make themselves appear human. The story follows Kiba and three other wolves, who follow him for differing reasons, as they make their way out of the city in search of paradise. Along the way there are a few human characters that have big parts in the show as well and they all do the usual human thing of having realizations about the problems that humanity caused or being just plain crazy. All in all I would recommend this to anyone who is either a true anime fan or people who like anime that is specifically about the trials and tribulations of man, since the wolves are usually seen in human form and deal with very human like problems. And if you aren't sure whether you would or wouldn't like this anime I would suggest renting it from netflix or borrowing from someone you know who already has it because I am pretty sure that once you see the show you will buy it. And if not I guess this type of show just isn't for you.

Limited Collection vs Perfect Collection
The Limited Complete Collection was the first complete boxset of Wolf's rain you could get (other than if you purchased all the individual DVDs w/ the starter box).

Is this 26 or 30 episodes?
Koby,

This box set, from the product description, contains seven discs, which means that it includes the OVA episodes as well. When they say perfect, they mean perfect!

Hope that helps.
