In this anime, wolves are believed to be extinct for 200 years. Humans are sparsley scattered around, living in domed cities scattered throughout a desolate, wasted world.
Yet among them, wolves do roam. Disguised as humans, they seek the scent of the Lunar Flower to lead them to a place called Paradise, where wolves roam freely.
This show features 4 of these wolves: Kiba, Hige, Tsume, & Toboe as they search for Paradise. Accompanying them is Chesa, the Flower Maiden, crafted from a legendary Lunar Flower.
Hunting them is the wolf hunter, Quent, who knows that wolves still roam. Because of this belief, no one takes him seriously & think of him as a drunken old man. He hunts for the wolves with his companion, Blue.
As you watch the series, you see their triumphs, their losses, their struggles, & encounter new allies & enemies. There are several twists here & there, & an ending you won't forget!
Wolf's Rain, a truly awesome anime. Sadly, it's no longer shown on television. (Thank goodness for DVDs!)
A user on a website who lacks the proper literacy skills needed to communicate properly. They spell words with "shorthand" spelling, known as chatspeak. Words are spelled with singly letters, number replace letters in some words.
These people claim that they type that way because it's quicker & easier, which shows tell-tale signs of lazyness. They accuse people who type properly of being elitist
Man, I'm glad that illiterate is gone. Couldn't he read that this is a Literates room?
The form of typing in which illiterates type.
Examples of "shorthand" include: u, ur, r, y, wat, dat, skool...
