I seem to have overlooked this anime when it first came out; though it has been on 'to-be-watched' list for quite some time (along with about 80 others!)
It follows a rather original concept of a myth surrounding wolves. In an undetermined future, where the Earth is going through what appears to be an ice age, humans live in domes. These domes are run by different Nobles - who are for all intents and purposes mysterious royalty like characters, rarely seens or observed. It is commonly believed that wolves have been extinct for the past 200yrs years - some know this to be untrue. Wolves have merely adapted to being able to walk amongst humans unseen, by appearing as humans themselves.
The story starts with the appearance of Kiba, as he arrives at one of these domed cities and through a variety of different means, gets a number of wolves to join his pack on his way to find Paradise. Then follow various adventures and plots.
The overall storyline is intriguing as is the character developement. I felt that the time we had with the story was too brief and at times, the plot was extremely cryptic. I wish the ending was less mysterious, but I suppose, we are supposed to answer some questions for ourselves.
Still, at the end of an anime I like having all my questions answered!
