Watch Wolf's Rain

Wolf's Rain is an anime series created by Keiko Nobumoto. It is about a group of wolves in a post-apocalyptic world who seek to fulfill a prophecy about the end of the world bringing about paradise. The series was well-received both in Japan and in North America. Critics praised its unique setting and art, its background music and the realism of its main characters.

In a world where wolves are believed to have been hunted to extinction centuries ago, they have adapted to survive among humans. They can cast an illusion that makes humans perceive them as fellow people, when in fact they are existing as wolves. The main character, a white wolf named Kiba, finds his way to a place called Freeze City in order to fulfill a prophecy. The prophecy is that when the end of the world is near, only wolves will be able to find the entrance to paradise. Knowing that the prophecy has some sort of connection to something called the Lunar Flower, Kiba follows its scent.

His search leads him to find an artificial human named Cheza, who was once the Lunar Flower but had been transfigured into a human via alchemy. Along the way he meets a handful of other wolves, and they all take it upon themselves to protect Cheza as the key to opening paradise. Of course, things are made more complicated as the wolves are pursued by a number of antagonists. They are hunted by a man from a line of wolf hunters, and they are attacked frequently by an army led by the main antagonist, Count Darcia.

And when Darcia steals the flower girl from her lab, it is up to Kiba to keep his pack of lone wolves together in order to find her again and then keep her safe. Pursued relentlessly by the hunter and Darcia's army, it quickly becomes clear that the odds are stacked against them. But only the wolves can find paradise.
