Spice and Wolf English version is unveiled!! 2 covers?



Yen Press unveiled the cover art of SaW 1st volume.
But they made 2 kinds of cover art.
One is original version.
Another one is......

Spice and Wolf, Vol. 1

OK! I don't think it is terrible.(though it surprised me.)
They need to attract people who don't read manga nor anime.
I'm curious what normal readers feel.
antichristian?
bestiality?
good to learn economy?
or just CUTE?

I hope many people read this novel.
But I'm worrying about one thing.
If this novel is sold very much, will they make a live action film?
I can't even imagine it.

No title

I hate the "Made up for everyone cover".

If me as someone who doesn't know about anime or manga look at this cover and the title "Spice & Wolf"

I will simply think "this is an erotic novel, about bestiality????"

Why? not Even "The Original" "Wise Horo" appears naked in the Cover.

Remember in English "Spice" can have many meanings and "People who think in the worst way" will select the worst thinking about it with this cover.

I have also read other novels like N.H.K.

Do you know it? and I was impressed to what I saw inside "Later I knew about the manga and anime" but the novel itself can't be replaced by the manga or anime, it has it's own spark.

What do you think about it?

Re: No title

This novel is so unique.
I too want them to introduce it carefully.

I've not read this novel. But I guess they made a joke by otaku society.
