Movie Reviews

The second half of the "Complete Collection"
David Roth | 09/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While this does say it is the complete collection, it is only the second half of it. There is an actual Wolf's Rain Box set available that does contain the entire series. This is not it.

This collection contains the last half of the show and is, in my opinion, the greatest set of ending episodes in any anime I have ever seen. As Kiba, Toboe, Hige, Tsume and Cheza continue their search for paradise, getting continuously closer, so too are the nobles and Darcia to attaining paradise for their own means. As the humans Cher, her ex-husband Hubb, and the Wolf hunter Quent also become increasingly entangled between the oppressive nobles and the truth of The Book of the Moon, the setting is set for the most gripping set of episodes I have ever witnessed. By the time the series reaches its climax, an emotional attachment will have been achieved between the viewer and the characters that pulls you into the story and makes you truly feel for all the troubles and heartache they experience. The last half of Wolf's Rain is filled with drama, action, suspense and surprise occurances throughout. There is just no way you can see this show and not be in awe. I highly recommend this collection for anyone who is a fan of great entertainment, anime or not. The story, characterization, and voice work (not to mention the wonderful music provided by Yoko Konno) Wolf's Rain will draw you in regardless. So whether you buy the series in a two part collection or get the full box set elsewhere is up to you. Either way, you won't be disappointed."
Stunning series....

"First off, I've just got to say, I loved Wolf's Rain. This series is beautiful. From the animation to the music to the plot. Everything is wonderful... I especially loved the end to this series. Here's why. (and I won't spoil much, so it's safe to read)

The first half of the series really pulled me in. It caught my attention and held it. But when I started to watch this, I really could not stop, I watched this in one sitting. The last few episodes were incredible. True, there was a certain ambiguity to the ending, but all in all, everything was wrapped up nicely. As you learn more about the pasts of the wolves, Cheza, and the other characters and as they search out Paradise, things really start to fall apart. While watching this, you'll be wondering, will they find Paradise, what cost will they have to pay to get there? And you'll find out. You may not like the end, but I actually found it to be very beautiful.

The only thing I'll spoil is this, you'll probably need a kleenex or two...the last 5 or so episodes had me in tears nonstop.

Even so, I HIGHLY recommend this series to anyone willing to watch it. It's great."
A must watch!!

"This is the second collection of this anime. After watching the first one, I could not wait to watch for the finale of what would be happening to the characters in the story. Chapter to chapter, I understood why they are doomed to have their fate and all the surroundings. Some is good, some others are quite sad. More or less, it is considered as unexpected. I realize some reviews are against this anime. I do not know why the reviewer can grade it low scores. I never felt bored bythe story. This is amazing. But I can recommend this anime to anyone who loves mystery, detective stories, even thrillers."
So Amazing!

"Bandai has been releasing its series in Boxed Sets, but half series for the longer ones (50 episode) in two boxes sold separately. This is for the second half of the series.

The first time I saw the finale (NO SPOILERS!) I almost threw the DVD across the room. Upon viewing this series a second time I come to understand the deep and meaningful message of this show: Good cannot exist without Evil and vice versa.

Without giving away the plot or spoilers, this show continues to excel well into the second half. The final three episodes are heart wrenching but the ending will still give you a lift (second time for me though!)

This is surely one of the better series produced in recent history and the animation, story, and acting are all top quality. Yoko Kanno wrote the soundtrack which, like all of her work, fits the story perfectly.

Dai Sato is one of the best anime creators and screenwriters. He has so far been one of the better writers in this style and genre.

If you like this, also check out Ergo Proxy (though the animation suffers in that show, damn Korean outsourcing), Last Exile (freaking amazing series), or Witch Hunter Robin. DO NOT be fooled into watching Gilgamesh, it steals so obviously from this plot, just without the wolves...

Pros: Animation, acting, story, one of the creepiest villains EVER
Cons: Disgustingly sad ending

Viewing Preference: English Dub (though it was a close one)"
