Alternative Names:Ookami to Koushinryou
Author: Hasekura Isuna
Mangaka: Koume Keito
Genre: Adventure, Romance, Seinen, Supernatural
Is based on a light novel and set to be an anime in Jan 2008.
I happened upon this manga by chance and immediately fell in love with it though it only has 3 chapters published so far. The line work of Koume Keito is a joy to read. The first two chapters neatly deal with Lawrence and Horo meeting but is enough to draw me into this story. Surprisingly justifying the use of the mimi (animal-earred) lead character as more than just being a cliche of Japanese culture.
I look foreward to the anime which is more based on the novels than the manga.
