5.0 out of 5 stars Still nothing to dislike. 22 May 2011
By Evan R. Cassity - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
It is fantastic that Funimation has decided to release the second season of the brilliantly calm Spice and Wolf. Coupled with their re-issue of the first season on blu-ray, the two sets will look beautiful both next to each other on your shelf and on your television.

The story continues as Holo and Lawrence make their way towards Yoitsu, Holo's homeland. Where the first season focused on the budding, flirty relationship between Holo and Lawrence, this season finally admits it outright. It does not, however, forget the economics and intelligence that made it such a charming series.

The first season had intriguing plots about different currencies and the principles of economics applied on a large scale. This season continues that, to a degree, but the episodic nature of the first season is not maintained. The story of season two is more cohesive throughout. Without spoiling anything, the relationship between Holo and Lawrence takes the forefront, while Holo's continuing education and intuition regarding the laws of economics is also portrayed. Indeed, though Lawrence is the alleged expert in the field, Holo's scheming and discretion is what saves the day on more than one occasion. Imagine the suspense of a battle anime, like Naruto or Bleach or Hajime no Ippo, only the battleground is the world of money, coercion and intrigue.

The dubbing Funimation employed for the first season was very well done, and as always the set will include the original Japanese dub for those who enjoy subtitles. The recent development of anime on Blu-ray will ensure that the series looks as good as it possibly can as you watch, and while this series is not the most beautiful anime around, it is certainly not poorly drawn. Watching it, you will have wonderful characters with whom you can connect, plots that will allow you to think through the deals and economics, and the satisfaction of having watched an anime truly different from others you have seen.

Will there be a third season? There are many who hope so. The light-novels, off of which this anime is based, are being released by Yen Press. So if you cannot wait to continue the adventures of Holo and Lawrence, opportunities will be open to you. If the episodic format of the first season turned you off to the series, this season should draw you back. There are only two main storylines throughout, with a few small side plots. Watch the relationship between two very believable (yet fantastic) characters develop naturally, and with all the charm in the world, as they navigate themselves through an inventive medieval world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very In-depth/loveable series 30 May 2011
By Kyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Whether its the anime, novel or manga, the Spice and Wolf series is just something so unique and different in its own way. Some may not like it, everyones perspective varies. But if you're a fan of anime, it's absolutely something you should look into and see if it might spark an intrest in you, it sure did in me. Watching the anime on Netflix made me buy it on DvD, and also the books which I am very pleased with(considering I never read haha). I'm very happy to see the second season available now, and hope they keep it going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Completely brilliant! 5 Dec 2011
By Brian K. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Season Two starts off slow, but picks up speed starting with the third episode. Then it turns out the slow portion was in fact, highly detailed setup and foreshadowing that reaches clear back into the last couple episodes of Season One.

Most of Season Two is taken up with a powerful lesson in how commodities markets work. Whoever wrote this series has worked in the commodities market and understands their flucuations in exquisite detail.

Strong characters, detailed plot with solid real-world foundation, beautiful artwork. "Spice and Wolf" is more than great anime. It is great literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this series! 24 Aug 2011

I'm really happy that Funimation has finally announced that they are still going to release this season, I was scared that they dropped it and we would never get it. I really hope that they release just a DVD version because I don't have a Blu-Ray player and I don't want to pay more for something I wont use, if they don't end up doing that then I will definitely get this version.

5.0 out of 5 stars I cant wait for Season 3. 4 Nov 2011
By Logan Awesome - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Was almost as good as the first season. However this one does have a bit less action. However since that is not what spice and wolf is about i cant dock any points for that. But overall its what you would expect from spice and wolf.

The last episode ending was not very good IMO... left it feeling open. However it only covers books 3 and 4. if i remember correctly. but their are 16 novels so their is a lot more that happens after this series... Now if that gets put on DVD or blu ray is up to them. After volume 6 these is not even a English volume released yet.
