Paradise – a legend, a myth, and a hopeless dream in a world that become a wasteland. It is not meant for everyone, only the wolves, thought to be extinct yet still roam the lands. When the Flower Maiden awakens, the path to the end will open.
Kiba, a lone wolf, wanders into a poverty-stricken city on a quest. The scent of Lunar Flowers and the will to find Paradise is all he has. Along the way, he runs into other outcast wolves – Tsume, Hige, and Toboe, each with their own story and troubles. Fate bringing them together, they seek out the Flower Maiden, Cheza, and their way to Paradise. But, doing so is no simple matter.

So... what is it about? Well, If I understand correctly, this story explores the theme of the true nature/meaning of Paradise. Does it exist? What is it? What is it like? Where is it? Why search for it? The pack of wolves that spend the entirety of show's run searching for it, constantly ask themselves those questions. Should they go on, or give up? This show gets VERY philosophical at times. And what are the answers to those question? Watch Wolf's Rain to the end, and make your own conclusions. Oh, and animation is top-quality and music is by Yoko Kanno.
Alright, now let's get to the technical side. This is a Pal DVD set. Whether the show was originally recorded in this format, or NTSC, I have no idea, but the DVDs are interlaced. Playing the discs with VLC and using Yadiff (2X) de-interlacer removes the issue almost entirely, with little to no ghosting. Aside from that, the video transfer is perfect, and the audio is flawless. Among the extras are character information, textless opening/closing and 2 interviews with writers and voice actors. If you are planning on buying this particular release, you won't be disappointed. Although you might not particularly like the packaging. While not bad per se, I think they could have come up with a better way to hold the last 6 DVD's in place.
This set of seven discs contains all thirty episodes of the `Wolf's Rain' series and personally I think that `Wolf's Rain is well worth a solid four stars. The series has some good animation, an interesting plot and some good characters. I cannot complain about the English dub and the soundtrack for the series by Yoko Kanno is spectacular.
The only real downside of the series is the recap episodes in the middle of the series that seem to be somewhat redundant. In many ways though, I cannot fault this series and there isn't anything terribly wrong with it but I do feel that it lacks something that would otherwise make it a great series. `Wolf's Rain' is still a very good series and should be enjoyable for any anime fan.
The general jist of the plot is that 4 wolves are searching for 'Paradise' as they sense that the end of the world is near. Throughout their adventure, they bond with eachother and the beautiful thing is, they also bond with us. These characters have skeletons in their closets but they all have twice as many redeeming qualities. There is also alot of action through the series and had me on the edge of my seat at times.
As I said earlier. I would've given this series 4 stars a few hours ago. But this i because I was numb from the ending. However, when that state had worn off, I stared out into the distance, lost in my thoughts, staring into the clear blue sky when I begun to contemplate the series as a whole. And I had arrived at the conclusion, that 5 stars was the least I could do to pay homage to this great anime.
Plus, any plot that makes one numb is worth considering for anyone who wants to own a piece of memorable anime.
