List of Characters




Plot Summary: In some distant future, it's common knowledge that all wolves have been extinct for 200 years. However, it seems this is false as wolves have not disappeared but rather have taken human form. Kiba, a lone wolf, wanders into a city, trying to sniff out the Lunar Flowers that are supposed to lead whoever follows the scent to paradise. The source of the smell is Cheza, a girl who sleeps in what appears to be suspended animation in a lab. She and the wolves are drawn to each other, and Kiba hopes to find paradise once he finds the source of the scent of Lunar Flowers. However, once Kiba finds Cheza, she is kidnapped by a mysterious person called Darcia, and his search begins anew. Before he leaves the city, he meets 3 other wolves, Tsume, Hige and Toboe. All four wolves have very different personalities and ideas, and their friendliness towards each other is a little rough around the edges. However, they soon band together to continue to search for paradise.

I'm watching this anime at the moment; and i think it's really good. Anyway, the plot is really interesting! What confused me again (the same thing confused me in FMA), why did they use russian?

i've only seen bits and pieces of this anime so i really can't judge... but what i do like about this anime is its music... another yoko kanno masterpiece, especially "gravity" sung by maaya sakamoto. so short, yet bitter sweet.

I haven't heard this song yet; but the ones I've heard by now are really good!

Wolf's Rain is an anime by Studio Bones and much of the same crew behind Cowboy Bebop save for Shinichiro Watanabe. It focuses on a group of wolves who have the ability to telepathically disguise themselves as humans. It takes place in the future on earth after some sort of devasting cataclysm. The wolves are searching for a mythical place called, "Paradise". The villains of the series are the enigmatic Nobles who are somehow related to the wolves and are also searching for Paradise. It's a 30 episode series and its really well made. The English dubbed version airs on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim and it is fantastic.

Good description. I have nothing to add except that it's a very emotional show. The settings are very bleak, the characters seem either perpetually depressed or else too naive to be. But the show's not a whiny, spooky, I'm-so-sad "gothic" self-indulgence. The music, as has been mentioned, adds to the feeling of loneliness which runs throughout everything in this show. But it does this by being either upbeat or nonexistent. It forms this contrast or emphasis, which is a soundtrack's job, but the emphasis is overwhelming and the contrast stark.

I'm an emotional rock. I mean I'm tough. Dancer in the Dark didn't make me cry (I teared up a little...a little). Nearing the end of Wolf's Rain is an episode which made me cry and go to bed at noon. It's a good show.

Note: I was watching a good fansub. I haven't seen the American dub and so my statements do not apply to it.

i wanted to watch it, but it was licensed so i turned to cartoon network instead. the art seemed great but the first big turnoff was that joshua seth played one of the main characters, and i am really, really sick of hearing him in every single dub out there. and then i heard some of the other voices, and in my opinion, they aren't wonderful either. i didn't watch any more after that, so don't trust my opinion on the dubbing. kiba and tsume look really cool, though, so maybe i'll go back and watch sometime if it's still playing smile.gif

It's really, really good. It's, as was said above, 'gothic', there are almost no jokes, but the whoe atmosphere isn't depressive, it's sad and beautiful.

Wolf's rain is a good series. It starts off really slow but it really picks up in the end. The story line progresses nicely.

emotional as in oh-i'm-in-tears-b/c-its-so-sad or is it more of a meaningful, purposeful type of emotional?

Sad as in, people don't really cry very often in this show because they simply have no more tears to shed. As in, life is just always like this so what's sad about it?
It's sad because it only occasionally dawns on the characters precisely how sad their lives are.
Someone said it's sad and beautiful and with that, I'd definitely have to agree. It's sad the way living in the last days of the age of mankind would be sad. The way idly knowing, somewhere on the periphery of your mind, that you are among the last generation of a soon-to-be extinct species.

Don't get me wrong though, it never quite throws it in your face. It lets you feel the permeating melancholy for yourself, and define it in your own terms. Perhaps, for you, there is some hope. Maybe there isn't.

Geez what a good show!
