More information has arrived for the new Spice and Wolf anime, titled Spice and Wolf: merchant meets the wise wolf. The latest update involves the premiere timing, which has the series set to debut on TV Tokyo and other stations in Japan this April. 

The official social accounts also shared a new holiday visual to ring in the new year:

Back in August we got a nice summer visual, too. 

Takeo Takahashi and Hijiri Sanpei are directing the new Spice and Wolf anime at animation studio Passione. 

Yen Press released the original light novels for Spice and Wolf in English and sums up the story:

The life of a traveling merchant is a lonely one, a fact with which Kraft Lawrence is well acquainted. Wandering from town to town with just his horse, cart, and whatever wares have come his way, the peddler has pretty well settled into his routine-that is, until the night Lawrence finds a wolf goddess asleep in his cart. Taking the form of a fetching girl with wolf ears and a tail, Holo has wearied of tending to harvests in the countryside and strikes up a bargain with the merchant to lend him the cunning of “Holo the Wisewolf” to increase his profits in exchange for taking her along on his travels. What kind of businessman could turn down such an offer? Lawrence soon learns, though, that having an ancient goddess as a traveling companion can be a bit of a mixed blessing. Will this wolf girl turn out to be too wild to tame?
