Spice and Wolf Light Novel Series Enters Final Story Arc
The wraparound jacket band and jacket blurb on the 15th volume of Isuna Hasekura‘s Spice and Wolf (Ōkami to Koshinryo) light novel series has confirmed this week that the series is “entering the final story arc at last.” It has been seven months since ASCII Media Works‘ Dengeki Bunko shipped the 14th volume, and over four years since the first volume shipped in 2006. The 15th volume itself is not the final volume of the series; in fact, it is the first part of the “Taiyō no Kinka” storyline.
Spice and Wolf is the acclaimed novel series that avoids the usual sword-and-sorcery trappings of fantasy stories and focuses on how business (and religion) gets done in a medieval world — with a wolf girl. In the story, a peddler discovers a wolf girl who wants to return to her northern home after serving as a town’s goddess of harvest for many years. The peddler strikes a deal to bring the wolf girl north, and she brings him both prosperity and unwanted attention from the church.
Yen Press will publish the third volume of the light novel series in December, and it published the second volume of Keito Koume‘s mangaadaptation in July. Funimation licensed the two television anime seriesbased on the light novel series.
