Wolf and a Distant Past
Wolf and Best Clothes is first episode of the first season of Spice and Wolf.
Kraft Lawrence, a 25-year-old traveling merchant, arrives at the town of Pasloe during its harvest festival. In the fields surrounding the village, Lawrence meets a girl claiming to be the legendary wolf deity, Holo. Lawrence, in disbelief, asks her to prove it so the girl returns to her wolf form before disappearing. Back in town, Lawrence meets with a younger girl named Chloe, a former student of his. She asks if she can become Lawrence’s business partner, but he declines, telling her that she is too young to make such a risky move. After leaving the town, Lawrence meets Holo again and learns that she escaped the town so that she can return to her homeland in the north. Lawrence agrees to let her accompany him on his travels.
