Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki’s Gonna be Mamoru Hosoda’s Writing Debut

ookami kodomo ame to yukiMamoru Hosoda, director of Toki Wo Kakeru Shoujo, Summer Wars and the upcoming Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki, will be appearing on the shelves in bookstores this time not as the director and original creator of an anime movie, but as the author of a book.

The novel is the actual story while the anime is based on it. The story covers 13 years of the lives of a young 19-year-old student from the time she discovers love in the face of a werewolf to the moment she loses him to her and her two children’s transit to a calmer town where they can life as both humans and wolves without being disturbed.

While the novel will come out July 22, 2012 in Japanese, we have no information whatsoever if there is a translation planned for it currently.

Sounds like ‘Twilight’… :D


That was a funny assumption. I still am excited to read it, though. Hope there would be a translation.


The fact that we know everything about it because of the movie spoils it for me.


oooh!!!! good luck to his first novel <3


About time at 44…
