狼と香辛料 XIII Side Colors III by Isuna HasekuraThe last of the short story collections in this series - so far.
I will be honest and say I had some misgivings about starting it, as the last one was rather dry and I had such troubles getting through it, but I gave it a shot, and Im glad I did!
I think this Side Colors is the strongest one of the three so far. The relationship between Holo and Lawrence is established and it is clear the author both believe in it, and knows it well.
I am honestly glad I read these stories, even the one about Norah.
Here follows the individual reviews for each story.
THE WOLF AND THE HONEYED PEACH PRESERVES
One of the cuter shorts for this series. It helps that at this point the relatiobship between Holo and Lawrence has really kicked of but is still new!
Also, did they or did they not get the preserves? And where can I find some? Even if it sounds too sweet, I want to taste it now
THE WOLF AND THE TWILIGHT—COLORED GIFT
This was both a sad and a cute one. I like the way the relationship between Lawrence and Holo has evolved, and these little scenes from their daily life are so adorable
THE WOLF AND THE SILVER SIGH
Yay! Another story told from Holos POV, and this time set during the main arc so we get to see her thoughts about Lawrence.
If I thought the other shorts in this collection were cute, they were nothing compared to this one. Both fun and serious all at once, and saying so much about their relationship and Holos character
THE SHEEPERDESS AND THE BLACK KNIGHT
I had some doubts regarding this story as it didnt contain Holo and was rather long, but im the end it was ok. I do feel that the story is currently unfinished, though.
Im also a bit annoyed at the fact that the author has given Enek much of Holos personality, when I think there are more original ways he could have taken, but it was fun getting inside his head!
Time to get on to the next book in the series!
EDIT: Ive seen one reviewer mentioning that the author is diminishing Holos knowledge in some of these shorts to make her seem cuter and give Lawrence an upper hand. While I agree that I wish Holo had figured it out on her own, I must also point out that how can you figure something out when you dont have all the pieces? In that sense, I do not doubt that Holo didnt solve the puzzle before the end of the story, and so the author didnt diminish her knowledge.
Im not saying this to call out the other reviewer, but because it got me thinking about the story in a new way, and I wanted to share my thoughts on it.
