Wolf Children

de Mamoru Hosada


When she was barely more than a teenager, Hana fell in love with a werewolf. It might seem strange, but for thirteen years they were extremely happy, and they had two children: Yuki and Ame, who were also born with the ability to transform into wolves. Following her husband’s sudden death, Hana decides to move to the country to be able to raise her children in a peaceful environment, where their extraordinary faculties won’t be discovered. However, as they grow up, Yuki and Ame must decide if they want to live as humans or as wolves. A beautiful tale straight from the imagination of Mamoru Hosoda, who already astonished us with The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars.
