posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga creator Hidori announced on March 14 that they will draw a manga adaptation of Isuna Hasekura's Wolf & Parchment: New Theory Spice & Wolf light novels that will launch in Kadokawa's Dengeki Maoh magazine this spring. Hidori posted an illustration to announce the manga on their Twitter account.
The young man Cole dreams of one day joining the holy clergy and departs on a journey from the bathhouse "The Spice and Wolf Inn," owned by his savior, Lawrence. The Winfiel Kingdom's prince has invited him to help correct the sins of the church. But as his travels begin, Cole discovers in his luggage a young girl with a wolf's ears and tail named Myuri who stowed away for the ride!
In the past, Cole had accompanied the Wise Wolf Holo and the traveling merchant Lawrence on their own wanderings, eventually growing up alongside their daughter, Myuri as siblings. But as Cole prepared to set off, Myuri opposed his departure and so she secretly ran away from home to join him!
This is the story of Wolf and Parchment, and the pair's travels that will someday change the world!
Hasekura launched the sequel novel series to his own Spice & Wolf series in September 2016, and the fourth volume shipped on March 9. Yen Press published the third volume last October.
Independent development circle Spice Tails is developing a virtual reality anime based on Spice & Wolf. The anime is slated for release on HTC VIVE, Oculus Rift, and other platforms in early 2019. The anime will also be viewable on PC without a VR headset, and it will have English subtitles.
Update: The manga will debut in the July issue of Dengeki Maoh on May 27. Source: Dengeki Maoh
