    Sadly Disappointing

    I tend to be one of the people that watch the anime before reading the Manga, and sadly, the manga was lacking. Though the art was fantastic -the reason it got two stars not one- but the story was horrible. As the manga came after the anime, the manga was the non-cannon (doesn't follow the plot line), and it was horribly short. For having such a wonderful anime, I expected much more for the manga, and it should have been longer. i mean, around 30 episdoes crammed into two volumes? I think not. Usually its more manga chapters per anime episdoe not the other way around.

    Wolf's Rain, Volume 1

    Ok, if you've seen the anime first, don't bother with this worthless manga! They tried to cram all 30 episodes into 2 mangas. Yeah, not gonna happen. They changed everything too. I mean c'mon, Blue falls in love with Darcia? Let's get real here. I simply despise this manga, it nearly makes a mockery of the anime...

    Wolf's Rain, Volume 1

    I found it to be horrible, actually. Nothing like the anime, which actually came first. They changed so many things. (Like how Kiba and Hige met Toboe) Leara was almost fully cut out, she was in it once which made her a fully pointless character. And the thing with Tia (or whatever her name was) was horrible to me. I only gave this one an extra star because it's better than the second one.

    Awsome!

    This manga had me from 'hello.' I loved the story and the post-apalyptic drama. Wolves are also my favorate animal, so that helped out a great deal with me reading it.

    I LOVED this book!!!

    This book was the best book that I have ever read!! my freind had told me about the series so I wanted to read the book. This book represents the struggles in which endangered species have. On the 2nd book I cried my heart out! It's so sad what happens to Kiba!!
