Plot Summary: Kraft Lawrence, a 25 year old peddler travelling from town to town selling and buying various things to make a living during a period much like Europe in the Middle Ages. One night when stopped at the town of Pasroe, he finds in his wagon a 250 year old pagan wolf deity girl named Holo. She appears to be that of a 15 year old girl, except for a wolf tail and ears. She introduces herself as the town's goddess of harvest who has kept it blessed with good harvests of wheat for many years. Despite having the responsibility to watch over the town, she wants to go back to her homeland in the north called Yoitsu, she believes the people have already forsaken her anyway and that she has kept her promise to maintain the good harvests. She manages to bargain her way out of the village by making a deal with Lawrence to take her with him. As they travel, her wisdom helps increase his profits, but at the same time, her true nature draws unwanted attention from the church.

I've only seen a few episodes so far, but it seems really good. It's also had a few articles in Newtype.

The Opening and Ending

I personally think the ending sequence sounds silly, because of the Japanese singing English.

I didn't see a topic for this anime already, so if there is one sorry about that .__.

I saw the first episode. happy.gif I thought it was good, but I'm not sure if I'll continue it or not... maybe I'll check out the novels when (and if) they're translated, or the manga.

I really like the OP, but not the ED. If the singing was in Japanese, I think I would like it a lot more, but the Engrish sounds really weird. The animation is good, though.

Another thing that irks me about the series is that Holo/Horo has no nipples. It looks like she's wearing a really tight, skin-colored body suit. blink.gif
