I've watched season 1 on Netflix, waiting on season 2 to release in English.
But to be completely honest, do you believe there will be a season 3?
After random research of the release times of manga, light novels, and the anime series. Sadly I don't believe it will, no matter how much I would love it to.
The release of the Japanese light novels varies in a strange way, where Volume 3 contains S2-E3. But Volume 7 contains S2-E0. Season 2 having 13 full episodes in total (according to the Japanese release)
Now the Light Novels have had 16 total volumes, the last one released in February 2011. Yen Press (creating the English version for NA sales) won't even have Volume 6 until June 2012.
Season 1's final episode had the original air date in March 2008. Season 2's first episode air date was in July 2009. So a little over a year had passed in between seasons, which sounds reasonable for any anime (or tv series for that matter). Almost 2 years have passed since Season 2's final episode originally aired on September 2009.
Spicy-wolf.com, the official Japanese Spice and Wolf website's last update was in February 2011 (recently) saying that Volume 16 is the final chapter and conclusion to the story of Holo and Lawrence.
Now clearly, there is ton's of material for them to continue the series, even beyond a season 3, but we have no release information on a season 3, not even an announcement of it. And almost a year and a half have passed since the final episode of Season 2 originally aired in Japan.
Even if we buy the Yen Press english novels, at 16 volumes, if it continues at the release pattern so far, we may not see the volume 16 story conclusion until June 2017.
I pray something proves me wrong and that we get information on a season 3 soon, I can't just have the story end at the last episode of Season 2.
Please tell me what you think or if you know where to find Japanese ratings. If anything the Japanese could be holding us back because of their lack of interest.
