My point in bringing up Capcom was that some things take longer to get sequels - consider Tron!

If we backtrack, they'll never get to Yoitsu! Though it's a long way forward to 17 also. The question is - what to include and what to omit... Every director working from a previous source must make it... Also, for example the addition of Chloe really added something.

Spoiler: Highlight to viewSeemed like repetition? The "Library Searching" and "Bar Crawling" has kind of been covered in S2, but the clever ending would be neat to see in animation, Miazaki style!
It's been covered in both seasons, really. :|. |
However, volume 4 does at least explains to us why Holo changed her mind about God.

And, I kind of disagree that the ending of Volume 4 was all that interesting, how Lawrence managed to save the day with cookies.
In season 1, Holo seems so sure that there wasn't a God and that the church's story about an all-knowing, all-powerful God being the creator of the universe was ludicrous. Yet, in the second half of season 2, she seems to have changed her mind for no apparent reason, as she questions the notion with Lawrence and wonders how He could allow people to suffer. Kind of throwing in some irony, considering how the villagers of Pasloe regarded her and what were her reasons for making some harvests poorer than others.|
If you were only following the anime, you wouldn't know what caused this sudden change in Holo's opinion on monotheism. Volume 4 provides an explanation behind Holo's change in opinion. But, aside from that, the story in volume 4 isn't that well-written. It follows the same format that the earlier volumes followed. |
Lawrence, being good with people, manages to charm his way into the hearts of the local villagers. Yet, because he is young and appears to be an easy target, a greedy fellow merchant tries to screw Lawrence over for personal gain, and sets him up. But, as usual, Lawrence's cunning saves the day again, and Holo doesn't have to resort to laying down a world of hurt on the villagers in her wolf-form after all.|

Yet, if it were that simple, then couldn't Lawrence just set up a shop somewhere else and sell cookies himself? He'd have enough money to buy his own store in no time. :D
PPS. Nice photo, WolfOfMonteCristo. Pretty funny. Did you come up with that?|
