posted on 2009-05-23 03:07 EDT
The North American anime distributor Funimation is announcing on Saturday at Anime Boston that it has acquired the license for the first season of the Spice and Wolf anime series. The anime adapts Isuna Hasekura and Jū Ayakura's acclaimed light 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. Jun Fukuyama and Ami Koshimizu play the peddler Lawrence and the wolf girl Holo, two unlikely companions who embark on a journey together. Imagin produced the animation, and Kadokawa Pictures USA handled the distribution arrangements.
