Comment from Kraft Lawrence: Jun Fukuyama
I’m Jun Fukuyama, who plays Lawrence. He never thought he would play Lawrence in another animated series. Moreover, I thought it was a sequel until I received the script, so I was surprised when I read it. Even though it is such a project, as long as I have been given the opportunity again, I will do as much as possible while considering the times.
Holo: Ami Koshimizu Comment
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to play the role of Holo again. I want to create a new Holo while searching for a balance between the challenge of expression that I wanted to do at the time but was not able to because of my lack of ability and the things that I was able to do because of that time.

With a horse that pulls a wagon as his partner, he spends his days selling goods from town to town. One day, he visits a small village with golden wheat fields and meets a beautiful girl with ears and a tail. She said, “My name is Holo.” Holo, who calls herself a “wise wolf,” was the incarnation of the wolf that governs fertility. Hearing her wish to return to her hometown, Yoitsu Forest, which should be far north, Lawrence and Holo become companions on a business trip heading north. However, the journey of the peddler is accompanied by unexpected ups and downs. A lonely peddler and a carriage carrying a lonely wolf incarnation begin to run noisily.
