"I am a huge fan of Wolf's Rain and have watched it on Adult Swim and own all the recent DVDs. This is truly a wonderful series that reaches somewhere inside you and pulls you into the very souls of the characters and you feel like you know these people. I can not wait for this DVD to come out because it has my favorite episodes on it. On this DVD, the group is still split up, but all of them, including Quint, make it to Jagara's keep and you learn more of Hige's past and his mysterious collar. If you have not seen any of the series and you buy this DVD, you will be intrigued and sucked into it until you are buying all the DVDs. That is what happened to me. I actually saw the first episode of this DVD on Adult Swim one night and was very interested and started my collection. It is worth your time to look into it. If you wish too learn more about this DVD and the Wolf's Rain series you can look at http://wolfsrain.animechain.net. Do not put www in front of wolfsrain or you will not find it."

"As soon as I heard Wolf's Rain was being made I got excited about the series. The people that work on it also worked on Cowboy Bebop, one of my most favorite anime series. I've been watching the series as each volume is released, and was waiting with anticipation for this one. I've heard that the last episode on Volume six was intended to be the end of the series. You can tell, because it has new, much more involved opening and closing sequences. However, I'm glad its not the end, because it leaves so many questions unanswered!
This volume just contains four episodes, but they are packed with revealing plot. You find your mouth dropping with shock a few times, because some real suprises are revealed. You also get some nice conclusions to some questions you had been dying to answer. It is a very beautiful anime, and these episodes are no different. Some of the ending sequences are confusing, but the artwork is amazing. The sound is also good, as the music really fits the scenes. Overall it's an amazing volume.
I love the series so much because it has such strong themes. It may feature wolves, but it really has something to say about love, obession, family, friendship, power, and society. If you don't believe me, start watching the series from volume one. The only bad thing about this anime, if you can even call it bad, is that the episodes do not stand alone. Don't start with this disc, or you will get nothing out of it. You need to see the series in order. Happy viewing!"

"Okay by the way this is not a "kids review" i am a (...) girl its just that i can't figue out how to make a normal review. lol Anyway...Wolf's Rain is the best anime i have ever watched. My cousin got me into it. One of my friends said it was a terrible series and i'm glad to say that's the biggest lie i ever heard. :) I got Wolf's Rain - Leader of the Pack (Vol. 1) - With Series Box, CD & Toy for christmas. After the first episode i was hooked. I immedietly went to get the rest of the DVDS and when i have to wait for one to come out i just watch the dvds over and over again. The idea of wolf's hiding in the forms of humans is wonderful. The plot is deep and dramatic. The drawing is amazing and the details are just fantastic. There isn't one bad thing about this anime. I start to care about the character (especially Kiba and Hige *squeal*) lol I wish this series would just never come to an end, it just draws you to it. Everything ties together perfectly and everything is perfectly connected. And the music.. OMG The music is amazing!! I adore all the music in the series. I love anime but I am sorta picky when i watch them. I didn't feel that way about wolf's rain. Wolf's Rain is by far the BEST anime ever created and i will always feel that way no matter what other anime i watch Wolf's Rain will be number one, on my list.
I just finished watching this DVD yesturday and i can't wait till the seventh dvd. I'm gonna see if i can go preorder it.But i wish i didn't have to wait till May 24!!!! I will be rewatching the DVDs till it comes out though. Sadly the seventh dvd is the last one..There better be a movie......grr.
I highly recommend this to anybody. If you don't care about anime than Wolf's Rain will definetly change your mind. And if you love anime than you adore Wolf's Rain."
At War For The Future

"One can't help by admire the conceptual sweep of this series. Based on a legend that men are descended from wolves, and that our older brothers will lead the way into the next world as they did bring us here in the first place. The story uses this without beating the viewer over the head with excessive Indian lore, and the result is something entirely original. The four wolves set out from one city on a quest for Paradise, they find Cheza, the flower maiden, and now it is time for Toboe, Tsume. Hige, and Kiba to enter Jaguera's forgotten city for what amounts to a preliminary dramatic conclusion.
Everyone descends on the forgotten city, not just our wolves. Cheza and Hubb have been captured and brought here, Blue and Cher follow their trail, and Quent Yaiden brings up the hindmost. Each will confront the truth in their own way as step by step we move towards the final confrontation with Jaguera and the conflict between the true paradise and Jaguera's hope for for a fulfilled love and a final place for this world's nobles.
These four episodes reveal much, resolving many of the mysteries, and revealing a few mysteries that we never realized were there. All taking place against the backdrop of the city and the complex rituals that Jaquera uses to gain her final objective. Good or evil, each character displays some facet of value that arouses some sense of respect. Even Jaguera, who is by far the villain of this piece, manages to command respect. In fact, character development is as important to this story as any other part of the narrative or artwork.
This has turned out to be a very special series, remarkable for its creativity, design, and music. Both the English and American casts are excellent. This DVD continues to push the envelope of anime's ability to become more than a Japanese phenomenon but something that has universal appeal to anyone seeking something special in the way of entertainment."
