Isuna Hasekura’s Spice & Wolf, which tells of the travels and friendship of the merchant Kraft Lawrence and the wistful wolf god Holo, is celebrating its 10th anniversary on February 10th. And not only that, this milestone marks Hasekura’s debut as a novelist, with the first release he wrote for the Spice & Wolf series. To celebrate, as well he should, he’s writing a sequel to his serene first story.
Tomorrow, Kadokawa’s Dengeki Bunko Magazine will make the official announcement to its readers, featuring a new illustration of Holo by the novels’ illustrator Jū Ayakura, and proclaiming “The story of Holo the Wise Wolf and the peddler Lawrence is set in motion once more!!” After this news appears in the magazine’s 48th volume, readers need only wait for the next to see Spice & Wolf’s reincarnation. Dengeki Bunko Magazine volume 49, which will be published on April 9th, will bear the new tale of Lawrence and Holo.
