“The life of a traveling salesman is a lonely life, a fact Kraft Lawrence knows well,” reads the official synopsis for the series. “Wandering from town to town with just his horse, cart and all the goods that came his way, the peddler settled pretty well into his routine, that is, until the night Lawrence found a goddess sleeping wolf in her cart. Taking the form of a fetching girl with wolf ears and a tail, Holo has grown tired of tending to the crops in the countryside and makes a deal with the merchant to lend him the ruse of ‘Holo the Wisewolf’ to increase his profits in exchange for taking him on his travels. What kind of businessman could turn down such an offer? Lawrence soon learns, however, that having an ancient goddess as his companion journey can be a bit of a mixed blessing. Will this wolf prove too wild to tame?”
