I have a hard time getting into new anime what with the college and games and the sleeping. Usually I end up just re watching an anime I’ve already seen. This leads to me noticing reoccurring phrases and events. Naturally I make a drinking game out of this. So what anime drinking game do I have for you today?
A rather old anime that came out in 2003, Wolf’s Rain is about a world where wolves are practically extinct and have gained the ability to disguise themselves as humans, everything is ruled by some crazy ass nobles, and the only thing that save the world is a really annoying flower maiden.
No, she is literally a flower girl. A flower that is a girl, a Lunar flower to be specific.
So to get through this I will simultaneously introduce the characters and every time you should be taking a drink.
Kiba serves as the leader of the pack and believes in an old wolf myth (?) of Paradise. Will stop at nothing to protect Cheza and get to Paradise
Drink: Every time someone tries to undermine his authority and whenever he talks about paradise.
The guy just waiting for someone to write homoerotic fan fiction about him is Tsume, the rebellious and wild one of the pack.
Drink: Every time he does something homoerotic or places his hands on his hips (like in the picture)
The rest of the pack includes Hige, Toboe, and Cheza. Hige is the easy going and joking type while Toboe is the runt of the little. The pack spends most of their time traveling to Paradise and protecting Cheza the flower maiden who… does nothing… I don’t recommend you do this but you can take a drink every time they are annoying.
As for this awesome dude over here, he is Quent, a man who had his whole village burned down by wolves(?) and now hunts them for revenge.
Drink: every time he takes a drink or tries to shoot something.
This little lady is Cher, a scientist who works for the nobles and help make the flower maiden.
Drink: Every time she says, “I don’t know”, or something to that affect.
And last, but certainly not least, take a drink every time they show a wolf in human form do something that a wolf couldn’t possibly do… Like set a village on fire. Ya’see the anime never bothers to explain if they can actually turn human or whether it’s just an illusion, but in several scenes imply that it is just an illusion like when Quent is drunk and thinks he might see a wolf where a wolf in disguise is standing or when Tsume tries to save a child by reaching out to him (with a hand that is actually a wolf’s mouth) and causes the child to freak out and fall to his death.
The anime does not always remember this…..
Let the Drinking Games Begin!!
-Karinacus advises you to drink with caution because if you actually use liquor you’ll probably die of alcohol poisoning.
P.S. Use Gatorade, I do!
Update: Forgot one, take three drinks every time a main character dies!
