Anime adaptation of Isuna Hasekura's light novel series of the same name.


  • Season 1 covers volumes 1 and 2 from the light novels.
  • Season 2 covers volumes 3 and 5.
  • The rest of the series, namely volumes 4 and 6-17, have never been animated and are only available in LN form.
  • It's become a joke in the anime community that whenever a 3rd season of Spice and Wolf is announced, the year it comes out will be the greatest anime year of all time.
  • The light novel is available in the US by YenPress. God bless them.


Kraft Lawrence, a traveling merchant searching for profit, finds a naked girl with the ears and tail of a wolf asleep in his cart. Her name is Holo – a harvest goddess with an untamed beast lurking inside who longs to return to her beloved northern home. Armed with his street smarts and her animal instincts, a simple peddler and a forgotten deity begin a journey through the wild countryside. Along their path, the riches of happiness shall be reaped, even as the bankruptcy which dwells in the human heart is exposed.
