Spice and Wolf Light Novels to Get Epilogue in July
posted on by Egan Loo
ASCII Media Works' "Dengeki Bunko Bootleg" email newsletter announced that there will be a 17th volume of Isuna Hasekura's Spice and Wolf (Ōkami to Kōshinryō) light novel series on July 10. The new volume is titled Spice and Wolf XVII Epilogue, and its three stories is set several years after the "Taiyō no Kinka" story arc of the 15th and 16th volumes.
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 fourth volume of the light novel series next month, and it published the second volume of Keito Koume's manga adaptation in July. Funimation licensed the two television anime series based on the light novel series.
