New Book: Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf Vol. 2



Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf Vol. 2 was officially released this week. It follows Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf Vol. 1 by Hachijou Shin that was released this past June.

Book description:

But one day the Wolf encountered a girl in a red hood. She delighted in making the Wolf cry, and immediately fell in love with his sorrowful face. Now she brings her colourful friends to torment him every day! What is the story behind all the strange characters populating the deep dark wood, and what is a big, sad wolf to do.

More helpful I think, I found the following description about the series on Crunchy Roll when they announced the publication plans for this series:

Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf is a cheeky take on the Red Riding Hood story for fans of Alice in the Country of... and Dictatorial Grimoire, and includes plenty of familiar faces from Grimm fairy tales. This clever reinvention of the classic tale reverses the roles of the original, giving readers a lovable, cry-baby Wolf and an outgoing Red Riding Hood who just can’t help but want to tease him.

Once upon a time there lived a kind, sensitive Wolf. He loved the warm sun, the beautiful flowers, and the song of the birds. But one day the Wolf encountered a girl in a red hood. She delighted in making the Wolf cry, and immediately fell in love with his sorrowful face. Now she brings her colorful friends to torment him every day! What is the story behind all the strange characters populating the deep dark wood, and what is a big, sad wolf to do?

  1. Red Riding Hood and the Big Sad Wolf reminds me of another favorite series, I Don't Like You At All Big Brother. Both have outrageous stories but to judge from the Amazon sales ranks, not a wide readership. Perhaps they could be put on a "Best Manga Series You're Not Reading" list.
