One of the many anime projects we have to look forward to in 2024 is the new Spice and Wolf anime, based on the series written by Isuna Hasekura and illustrated by Ju Ayakura. The show is on the way with the merchant meets the wise wolf subtitle, and a new pair of visuals arrived to reacquaint us with Holo and Lawrence.

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?
