Salt and Dog #01 — Rather Nipply Out Tonight

April 1st, 2024


Of course it is.


It's hard to even muster up any opinion that feels like it's worth sharing, to be honest, which is largely why I stopped even glancing at sequels/continuations those many years ago. This is a known value. If they were truly rebooting it into Spice and Wolf 3000, following the space faring trek of a werewolf alien selling latinum to klingons or something, sure. There'd be lots to talk about there, even if the core remained generic boring dude meets girl who likes to be frequently naked with her hair conveniently glued to her nipples. But it's not that. That is not what Japanese adaptation does, and especially not what it does with reboots, which virtually always claim that they're going to hew ever closer to the source in an attempt to be the sourciest, and therefore the best. Because different media forms are irrelevant. Creative interpretation doesn't matter. Personal touch is unwanted. Only fidelity matters.

So here's Spice and Wolf for a second time. Maybe it has somewhat more nudity than before? I don't want to go back to check. I'll leave that to the fans of the franchise to discuss and debate. Perhaps they can do an aerola analysis based on the width of the her hair glued to her chest and come to a definitive answer as to which is the best based on how much nipple is hinted at. That truly does seem like the best way to experience this.

    Somewhere, someone is in fact doing this unironically.

    Only the manga features nudity and is drawn by a hentai artist. Can´t out nipple it.

    Version 2024 has a more believable-looking faux-European world but the 2008 version (it adapted Vol 1, 2, 4 and 5) is more aesthetically robust. S1 had some differences from the source material due to the creation of an original female character but she went missing in action in S2 when the anime decided to be line up even more directly with the source. Version 2024 is of course double plus more correct because it refuses to deviate from the start. The old director and the VAs also return. Lol. Not a bad anime pilot but a comically pointless one if the show won´t get at least 85 eps as there are 17 novels. And a new ongoing sequel series of currently 7 sequel novels. And a failed sequel manga about their daughter. And a VR game, and DS games and…

    The manga needed 16 volumes as it only adapted the books that push the story forward.

    He spent 10 years saving up for those clothes hiro is wearing skirt and all. All I’m saying is this came out on a poignant and ironic day to point this out and I’m not talking about April Fool’s……..

    (Hint:the day sounds like an AD&D spell or cloak.)
