Last week’s drama of whether Lawrence will stick with Horo all the way to Yoitsu has seemingly blown over. And after a bit of the typical Horo-Lawrence flirting/teasing game, we finally jump into the thick of the story, with some background into the mythology of Horo and some Lawrence-jealousy enticing antics.
It’s amazing to me how much nudity the censors allow Horo to get away with just because she has no nipples (or they choose not to draw them). Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. But apparently even the censors bow down to Horo-sama.
So I said I was going to write about the second season of Spice and Wolf in my summer preview. Unfortunately, this means I need to think of some angles and provide a little more effort than I put in for my occasional Hinagiku picture-dump fanboyism posts. This is tough. A very tough task. Because as much as I fanboy over Hina, I may be an even bigger fanboy for Horo. She’s such an emotive character – the twitch of the ears, the shuffle of a tail – that it’s hard to resist. But I’ll try to, and I’ll try to put together some coherent posts… starting from my next post, because there were too many adorable Horo moments to not capture this week.
My favorite animated female not named Haruhi Suzumiya is back in this one-shot OVA bridging the first and second seasons.
