From the anime Spice and Wolf, Kraft Lawrence is a 25 year old man who travels around buying and selling various things in order to make a living. He hopes to make enough money in order to open up a shop of his own. One day he meets Holo, who is a wolf harvest deity, and from then on they become traveling companions.
Why I like him: Smart and clever he can always think of a way to get the best deal. He doesn't let Holo get away with her tantrums either which was key to my enjoyment. He is a very "real" character.
Why I hate him: I don't. He knows what he wants to do and does it.
Overall: This slow paced fantasy with hints of romance didn't bore me thanks to Lawrence. He could always stand up to Holo unlike most male leads in many other romance anime.
