As they begin to fall deeply in love, he reveals that he’s not human and transforms into a wolf. Unwavering, Hana still accepts the “wolf man” into her life. They happily get married and have two healthy children: Yuki born on a snowy day and Ame during heavy rain. All is well until Hana’s husband is tragically taken away from the family (this is not a spoiler-I checked and it was in the book’s cover flap as well as Goodreads’ synopsis), and subsequently she becomes a single mother. Unable to keep her wild and expressive children away from the prying eyes of the people in a densely populated city, she soon makes the decision to move to the countryside. And there she and her family will have to face other plights but also many joys as well. It seems like Hosoda had two goals in mind with this series: readers get a coming of age story with Yuki and Ame, but they also witness the troubles and hardships Hana endures as a single mother of two wolf children. This type of dual storytelling was achieved splendidly. Wolf Children also has such a touching narrative because at its heart are themes like the power of love and the perseverance and strength an individual can gain after experiencing loss. Furthermore, it manages to include other important motifs such as change and self-discovery as well. Also, Hosoda uses a completely unique take on young parenting by using a dash of fantasy without overwhelming the very simplistic storyline. There’s no mythology or background shared about wolf people and absolutely no world building. Instead, Wolf Children remains as a lighthearted, slice of life series throughout. And I found that taking this approach worked in the series’ favor-mainly because Wolf Children takes a very character driven course. I adore Yuki and Ame so much. Like most siblings, they’re totally different from each other. It was also refreshing that they didn’t follow usual gender stereotypes. Yuki grew up more as a rowdy tomboy and Ame a delicate and sensitive child. And as they grew older, both kids go through a lot of unexpected changes that will lead to their eventual divergence in path. And when that separation does happen, it occurs so naturally and realistic. I also really loved how the moment of self discovery for each kid were executed in such a paradoxical manner. Ame was born during the rainfall and he discovered his true calling in the winter, and Yuki born during snowfall decidedly wanted to live among humans when spring rolled around. Small details like this made this series even more incredible. Hana is an admirable maternal figure. She handles young motherhood without ease, which is to be expected, but there’s never any doubt that she loves her children. The sacrifices and commitments she makes are always with Yuki and Ame in mind. I enjoyed her presence throughout the series immensely. However, my only problem was during the end of Ame’s arc, towards the conclusion of the series, Hana makes a rash and silly decision that will lead to several conflicts that could have been easily avoided if she chose the more obvious choice. It was so frustrating to witness that scene because it downright contradicted her earlier character. Other than that inconsistency, I was so fond of Hana and her loving nature. In both the animation and manga, Yuki is the narrator; I found this clever decision to be very effective and efficient. Yuki can subjectively describe the strains her mother encounters while raising her and her brother, but she’s also able to recount the struggles she and Ame face as they choose between identifying with a wolf or a human. And, more importantly, it’s the reason that explains the ambiguity and obscurity of the wolf man’s arc. If her mother was the narrator, it couldn’t be justified why readers weren’t given more elaboration on the wolf man or the mythology on wolf people. And if it was in Ame’s perspective, readers wouldn’t get a true reflection on Yuki’s birth (since she’s the firstborn) or what yearning to be part of human society would be like (seeing as we get that only with Yuki in the later half). And I actually believe the manga is even better than the corresponding film, which came as a huge shock seeing as the animation is the original work. I think this was due to the fact I wasn’t thoroughly enchanted by the movie’s soundtrack, which is a significant component that adds to my enjoyment of any anime. I also thought some scenes moved way too fast to draw an emotional response from me and found other parts to drag. Since the manga is divided into three volumes, I was able to set my own pacing. The art in Wolf Children is also nice and crisp. Yu’s illustrations really captures Mamoru Hosoda’s story, and I loved that the manga remained close to the original film’s plot-it didn’t miss a single scene. And, to my utter delight, the graphic novel included so many colored pages. Overall, Wolf Children is certainly not as depressing as other readers have pointed out. Rather, it’s a lighthearted manga loaded with subtle humor and charm. Its ability in including significant themes and values with simplicity should be something to commend. And, once again, the characters are so sweet and memorable. The art is breathtaking and matches with the original animation perfectly. Wolf Children is a heartwarming story I really can’t recommend enough. --- More reviews at Xingsings Blog @xingsings | Instagram @readxings | Twitter @xingsings

    second read: i simply think i should not be judged for rereading this manga. i needed a quick read that would distract me from the impending doom that is my final exams. first read: i never thought i would cry at a manga where the main character *does the deed* with a wolf in the first chapter, but here i am, sobbing.

    Once upon a time, a young woman fell in love with a wolf. Soon after, the two of them decided to start a family together... This manga is really, really cute.

I really enjoyed reading it, and studying the illustrations as I went along - the art is amazing, with the amount of expression put forth in the character's expressions and actions. Ame & Yuki are adorable when they're little and it's interesting to see how the character designs change as they grow older. This goes for Hana as well - one page has a comparison of her from the start of the series and an illustration from later on, and it's interesting to see the difference small changes make. The plot starts with Hana falling in love with the a young man at her college. Her curiosity & crush on him seem to come on very suddenly, but it's cute to see her reactions to him as they grow closer. And while it can seem quick, it obviously happens over a bit of a time-period, since the their relationship and the births of their children are only covered in two chapters. Eventually (I won't go into why), Hana is left to raise their children alone, with no idea how to raise two young wolves - or how to hide them from society. Eventually the pressure of the city gets to be too much, and they move out to the countryside and begin making a new life for themselves. It's here that the majority of the story happens as the children grow up and have to make their own way in life - and decide which whether they want to live in the human world, or as wolves. Story-wise, while I really enjoyed it, I don't think it'll be to everyone's tastes. You can't go into it thinking it'll be like the usual manga we see - it's nothing like Naruto, or Pokémon, for instance. there aren't any fantastic battles, or tantalizing mysteries. The story here is a lot quieter and more low-key. It focuses a lot more on the relationships between Hana and her children, the friends they make, and the community they live in. I didn't mind though, since it's interesting to watch them grow up and learn, adapting to the world around them and making their own ways in the world. Hosoda did a really good job of making even the 'mundane' day-to-day events interesting, and creating characters that readers become attached to and want to see succeed. If you don't mind something a little slower-paced, Wolf Children is definitely a story I'd recommend.

No one should read the manga without experiencing the beauty of the anime. ➸ A truly wonderful story about family and what it means. ➸ Strong, resilient characters that you instantly feel a connection to. ➸ Keep the tissues near by. This story makes you feel the quintessential "all the feels". 《Plot》 Hana is a normal girl that falls in love with a not-so-normal boy. They fall in love, and have two beautiful children together, Ame and Yuki. When tragedy strikes, Hana is left to raise their children all on her own. The only problem is, their children turn into wolves at the drop of a hat. Leaving the city, Hana takes her children to the country and strives to provide a safe, happy life for them. The family grows over the years, and the children eventually make their own paths in the world. This is a gentle, soft story. It's full of touching, quiet moments, and the emotion is palpable. A beautiful story that should be savored and appreciated. While it does contain supernatural elements, in never feels like it really crosses into "supernatural" territory. At its heart, this story is about a young mother doing her best to raise her children all on her own. 《Dialogue》 To me, this story almost could have been told without words. It's so impactful based solely on the artwork. But, the dialogue is easy and swift, and it keeps the manga going right along at a pleasant pace. 《Cast》 Even though the title specifies Ame and Yuki, for me, this story was about Hana. There is such a quiet resilience to her that just touched my heart. Her willingness to do what needs done with no complaint was a breath of fresh air. Her easy acceptance of the bizarre - humans with wolves inside them - in the face of love was tender and heartbreaking. Hana puts aside everything in her life to raise her children, and in the end, she even has the strength to let them go. I don't think I've read about a "heroine" so strong in a very, very long time. 《Art》 Typical manga style, which is to say, beautiful and delicate. I will always love manga for what it is. Wolf Children really shines when it comes to life in animation, however. A soft color palette, flooded with greenery, just suits this story so perfectly. I will also say, the way they've published this one is just stunning. Half of what made me want to read it is the hardcover packaging is so beautiful. It needs to sit on a shelf and be admired frequently. • • • • Seriously, read this. No words will really do it any kind of justice. <3

I mean, he was so calm an quiet and everything, but he didn't enjoy school and prefered to read alone in the school's library, so that was kind of a hint? The lonely wolf.

This wolf family is such a cute read and trust me, if you love good art and a good story, it's all packed into here. Well, let's get on with the review. Yuki and Ame are children with a secret heritage. They are wolves. Cute wolves nonetheless but still, wolves. When their father passed away with they were small, their mother took it upon herself to raise them up. At first, it was at an apartment and boy, did they have trouble. Yuki was howling once every few nights and that made the neighbors think that they had a dog. Then the owner came by to tell them that they had to move out. Their mom found a quaint house in the mountains with a tight knit community. And let me tell you, these neighbors would've been the nicest people you had ever met. So once the young family moved there, both children were now free to transform into their wolf forms whenever they wanted. It's just such a lovely story I think if you love the feel of Studio Ghibli's work, you'll probably love the manga and movie form as well. I haven't watched the movie but from what I can tell in going through this book is that the movie will be just as good. I know, it's a bit short of a review but I thought I should just mention the large chunks of history and then you can determine whether you would like to read this or not. :D Have a good day!

    I think this is a really cute manga about a mom raising her 2 wolf kids. Some of the panels just didn’t make sense for what was happening or the scene felt too short and should’ve been longer. Overall, still fun and would recommend but it wasn’t my absolute favorite manga ever.

My heart broke when Wolf Man died...I really felt horrible for Hana and her children. Yuki and Ame were so young to lose a parent at that age. Eventually Hana decides to move them out into the country so she could give her children a choice. They both decide to go on their own paths! This story was a quick read for me since I saw the movie. The movie and manga were so close...I'm going to be watching it again really soon! Characters: 5 stars out of 5. Hana: She was a great mother to her children. She had to learn so much and overcome so much. She was really a strong character. Raising two wolf pups alone must have been hard on her. She even had to fix her house on her own. You don't see that very often in real life. I really wish I could become the mother she was. I love the way that Mamoru wrote her character. Yuki: At the beginning she was a little brat, but she really did start to prosper. It was nice when she started making friends. She wanted to be a normal girl. It was hard for her to hide her identity. Also her love interest was adorable with her also! Ame: He was very timid in the beginning. When he started exploring the world he changed a lot. He didn't want to go to school. He wanted to be in the wild. That was a hard choice for him. It was hard seeing him go also. Writing Style: 5 stars out of 5. Mamoru has a really eloquent way of writing that I enjoy. I'm excited to read the light novel to the Boy and the Beast. (I saw that movie also.) I would read Wolf Children over a million times and see the movie. They really do intertwine beautifully!

But still, a few tears were shed. That scene where Hana saw his body? Absolutely heartbreaking. & in my humble opinion, if a book (or TV show or movie or whatever) has the ability to get such an emotional response from its audience members, then obviously it's doing something right. :) "Wolf's Children" was beaut 3.5 but I'm rounding up.

The artwork all is enough to earn a high rating. This is an absolutely gorgeous book. Absolutely stunning artwork. Gentle and sweet it works so perfectly with the characters & story. Especially Hana. The story itself is absolutely brilliant. The struggle of raising children alone is hard enough but toss in the wolf thing & it makes for a very interesting read. The characters are well rounded, likable, & relatable. I loved this book & devoured it in only an hour, despite its massive size. 540 pages! My only complaint is that it wasn't longer. I would have loved to see a more detailed account of Yuki & Ame's struggles with being part wolf, part human. What we see is excellent & shows the sharp contrast between the siblings. But I think seeing more would have only made an already terrific story even better. The end is beautiful. Sad & happy at the same time. :'D I will definitely be reading this again. Recommended to all manga fans. :) this would be a perfect book to start out with, since it's a stand alone story. Let's you see exactly what manga is all about. (Beautiful art & incredible characters mostly) without the intimidation of starting a 30+ volume series.

    3.5 stars, rounded up. Very sweet, funny, and a look at the lighter side of life after someone you love dies, and the power everyone has - to choose. Would recommend to those looking for something simple, not too deep, but relatable.

    I watched this anime back in 2015. Reading it again after 5 years brought back sweet memories. 💕
