That cliffhanger is scaring me. Just the fact that I only have two more books to read left scares me.

So I had some trouble getting into this book. That is because of the writing style It is rather distinct, after all, and after taking a break from this series I had some trouble getting back into it. Even now, while I want to jump right into the next book to see how things turn out - I did not expect that cliff hanger! - I'm not sure if I should jump into it, risking using up my brain with concentrating enough to keep up with what's going on in this story. That has grown to be my biggest problem ...more

K fine I actually cried this book.
Well, this volume was certainly an entertaining ride; and yet, it’s still not over. The first of two parts for the final chapter of the story of Lawrence and Holo, this volume doesn’t disappoint. It seems that the author, Isuna Hasekura, has set this up to bring the story around full-circle. A few loose ends seem to be getting tied up, but there is one big cliff-hanger to get through. Hopefully we’ll get the ending where Lawrence and Holo finally get together and make it official between them.

I fell in love with this series after watching the anime, and picked up the books to finish out the story. Mainly, I wanted to see what happens between Lawrence and Holo. It's no mystery that they would get together. I just wanted to ship the process.

This particular pair of books (15 and 16) closes out the arc in a way that felt right. It gives Holo a good motivation for the position she takes, and makes Lawrence grow up in an unexpected way.

I won't exaggerate too much to say that, in regard to

Our main characters are finally in the home stretch of their journey! Economic tricks are coming to a head, and we're interrogating why people hold certain opinions! Lawrence and Holo are cute, and it's nice to see them coming to understand and depend on each other more. And the economic intrigue of the Debau Company is interesting. But I feel like not an awful lot happens in the 200+ pages of this book, and the big twist at the end doesn't work as well as it has in other two-part books in the ...more

Wow, that was financially informative but still emotionally thrilling! Which is exactly the original spice of the whole series to begin with. Certainly not tapering off near the end!

A currency with "low taxes, smooth trading, no overbearing authority"... Wait, this isn't Bitcoin we're talking about, right?
"This might very well be the new way of the world"... Hmmm...
Isuna Hasekura, are you sure you're not Satoshi?

Following news of the Myuri mercenaries; seemingly named for one of Holo's long ago companions; Lawrence and Holo go to Lesko the mining town we've been hearing about for a while. Arriving there they find nothing is as they expected. There is some "economics" in this book, but it's mainly in relation to determining why Lesko is the way it is and "what's going on" - so a bit more in the way of a mystery.... after all how will this affect Lawrence and Holo and what should their next steps be?

Lawrence and Holo end up traveling to a free town to meet bandits who have taken the name of an old friend of Holo. Something strange seems to be going on in the town, and with Holo. Can Lawrence figure either out? Great read!

This volume is very slice of life. The story is definitely heading for a conclusion in 2 volumes. Unfortunately ends on a massive cliff hanger. One of the best so far.

In Summary

With Yoitsu drawing near, Spice and Wolf has a lot of loose ends that need to be addressed, from the Debau Company’s rumored aggression in the north to the mercenary band bearing the name of one of Holo’s comrades. Hasekura-sensei handles it masterfully, captivating our attention with Debau’s outrageous maneuvers and tugging our heartstrings with yet another reminder of Holo’s lost world and the future Lawrence holds out to her. After skillfully wrapping everything up, he concludes

I very much enjoyed this addition to the series. It featured good dialogue between Holo and Lawrence, and the economic tale woven into it felt like it was a great fit. This volume has a different translator than previous volumes, but the new translator kept to the same style as previous translations, and the story is told well.

I was also happy that this book focused almost solely on Lawrence and Holo. While I very much enjoy many of the other characters and their stories, it was nice to have a

Everything was going so well, I was so excited, but in the back of my mind I knew there was a part two and there was going to be a wrench somewhere. It was stressful getting to the last page before that wrench showed it's ugly face, I was getting ready to cast the idea aside completely. Regardless, I care for these characters and am excited hopes and dreams start to come true

I am so glad that I held off reading this book until I had the sequel in the house. Having to wait for months after the ending in this book would have driven me mad.
