JG WolfPopular anime series Spice and Wolf has been picked up by Funimation for release in the United States.

The medieval series, based on a light novel series by Isuna Hasekura, is about a traveling merchant who befriends the somewhat human reincarnation of a wolf god, who traditionally protects the fields for the harvest. She has a tail and ears but otherwise looks human, though revealing her transforms her into something terrible.

The series will be releasing its second season in Japan this June. To see the opening for Spice and Wolf, click: Here!
