ASCII Media Works' "Dengeki Bunko Bootleg" email newsletter has confirmed that the 16th volume of Isuna Hasekura's Spice and Wolf (Ōkami to Koshinryo) light novel series will be the final volume when it ships on February 10, 2011. The Temple Knights website notes that there is still the possibility of future Spice and Wolf short stories. The 15th volume had already confirmed in September that the series is "entering the final story arc at last." (The 15th and 16th volumes make up the two halves of the "Taiyō no Kinka" storyline.)

Spice and Wolf is the acclaimed novel series that avoids the usual sword-and-sorcery trappings of fantasy stories and focuses on how business (and religion) gets done in a medieval world with a wolf girl. In the story, a peddler discovers a wolf girl who wants to return to her northern home after serving as a town's goddess of harvest for many years. The peddler strikes a deal to bring the wolf girl north, and she brings him both prosperity and unwanted attention from the church.

Yen Press will publish the third volume of the light novel series this month, and it published the second volume of Keito Koume's manga adaptation in July. Funimation licensed the two television anime series based on the light novel series.

That is so sad/happy! Sad because no more Holo and Lawrence and their adventures (;_wink but happy because the English publishing companies still have 13 volumes to go and maybe they'll cone out faster. Gosh I love this series, I hope maybe now they'll make a few more anime seasons.

I agree, quite sad since one of the best novel ever is gonna finish, but quite happy since this kind of increase the possibility that I can read it all. I'm not reading the manga and watching the anime right now just because the novels are so good. Can't wait for 3rd volume in a couple of days. smile

I will be sad to see it end. I am a bit nervous about that as well, having read 14 volumes of the English translation with great pleasure, and come to love the two main characters like they were my friends.

The strange pairing, or proto-pairing, at the center of this series is inherently capable of delivering a heartbreaking ending.

Old folks can enjoy manga too.
