Kraft Lawrence is a 25 year old merchant traveling around a land reminiscent of medieval Europe. One night, after stopping at the town of Pasroe, he finds in his wagon what appears to be a normal 15 year old girl, except for a wolf's tail and ears. She introduces herself as a 600 year old pagan wolf deity named Holo, the town's goddess of harvest who has kept it blessed with good harvests for many years. Despite her ancient pact to watch over the town, she now wants to go back to her homeland as she believes the people have already forsaken her. She manages to bargain her way out of the village by making a deal with Lawrence to take her with him. As they travel, her wisdom helps increase his profits, but at the same time, her true nature draws unwanted attention from the church.

A story about a traveling merchant named Lawrence who one day meets a harvest deity in the form of a "wolf woman" called Holo which travels along with him to the north in search of her former hometown. While I've always heard that it is supposed to be an economics driven show it isn't really that accurate. The plot might be driven by it but the story itself is about the relationship of Lawrence and Holo. Unfortunately they seem to have forgotten about that in the second season which sees them seemingly part ways or meeting a fur trader which steals too much screentime. Since a third season never got made it would have been better to adapt the ending instead of this more filler stuff.
Given the praise I've always heard I was a bit disappointed. These voices might come from the male fans of Holo like this guy http://www.fabricerequin.com/post/category/project-holo/ who visited tons of places with a cardboard cutout of his waifu...
