Hana, a hard-working college student, falls in love with a mysterious man who attends one of her classes though he is not an actual student. As it turns out, he is not truly human either. On a full moon night, he transforms, revealing that he is the last werewolf alive. Despite this, Hana's love remains strong, and the two ultimately decide to start a family. Hana gives birth to two healthy children—Ame, born during rainfall, and Yuki, born during snowfall—both possessing the ability to turn into wolves, a trait inherited from their father. All too soon, however, the sudden death of her lover devastates Hana's life, leaving her to raise a peculiar family completely on her own. The stress of raising her wild-natured children in a densely populated city, all while keeping their identity a secret, culminates in a decision to move to the countryside, where she hopes Ame and Yuki can live a life free from the judgments of society. Wolf Children is the heartwarming story about the challenges of being a single mother in an unforgiving modern world.

Best anime mom.




A tale about the trials of single motherhood. Just when you thought things were hard enough, your kids can turn into wolfs.


Watched it with me mom. She loved it since it hit close to home. Amazing movie and my favorite from director Mamoru Hosoda.

Anime Gen. Fran_Coco

A movie about a mother trying to raise her children by herself. Its beautiful film about a mother’s love and children growing up. Watch this


It pulls at your heart. Makes you wanna escape human society for the free and open wild.


O my god, this movie was the best. I enjoy it very much. I really like their mother.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
