If you’ve missed Holo and Lawrence, don’t worry, because they’re returning for a new anime! However, this new anime will not be a TV anime, but a new kind of Japanese animation. This is because independent development circle Spicy Tails is developing the new Spice and Wolf anime for Virtual Reality (VR) platforms. Yep, this would be no TV anime, folks!
The light novels’ own creator, Isuna Hasekura, is writing the anime’s new original scenario. They also revealed that Holo and Lawrence’s respective seiyuu, Ami Koshimizu and Jun Fukuyama, are both returning to reprise their roles. Spicy Tails also confirmed that when they release this new VR anime, it will come with English subtitles.
As for its release, the circle revealed that it will be available for various VR platforms such as HTC VIVE and Oculus Rift. However, they did confirm that there will also be a non-VR PC version of the anime as well. The anime’s release window is in early 2019.
