This is the manga adaption based on the anime series Wolf’s Rain by the renowned and innovated studio BONES. If you’d like to own a portable and well drawn version of the anime you’ll enjoy this manga. However, if you’ve never seen the Wolf’s Rain anime, I’d advise watching that first before reading the manga. As this adaptation is only two volumes it’s understandable that there is a lot of character development that was left out.
I was a bit disappointed that the back story of my favorite character; Toboe, was omitted from this manga adaptation. I’m still very glad that I read this manga adaptation because I really enjoyed the artwork, especially the few color illustration pages. The theme of this manga is don’t give up on what you are looking for and keep going, then you will find that very thing.
This was one of my favourite Anime series when I was younger and one that I still absolutely adore. In Primary School, I had to do a project where we were to write a story and at the time I was obsessed with Wolf’s Rain so I based it on that, with a lot of help from my sister, who also provided the artwork for it. I thought it turned out really well, I actually think I still have that somewhere, probably in a box of old school projects, we kept most of it. Anyway, if you enjoyed the Anime, you will probably enjoy this, just don’t have too many expectations considering they jammed the entire story into two volumes but if you’re looking for a short Manga, then check out this one.
