In an age consisting of stupid shounens, overdramatized shoujos or generic mechas the creators of Spice and Wolf had the courage to create something that doesn't befall none of those categories. So the anime that more than anything focuses on a relationship between a human and a wolf goddess, as they travel across their world, exposing the rules of the economy there. If you can't grasp it, it's okay, it's not like it's a masterpiece.
I have no other explanation. I liked the anime, and I thought it's rather clever to at least touch the topic of economy.
I agree. Spice and Wolf, or generally just any of Isuna Hasekura's works, deviate from the usual genre of content and is refreshing in a way. It's not something I would hail as 11/10 or genre-breaking, but I still liked the Spice and Wolf series anyway, mainly because it was fun watching and reading (from the light novels) the interaction between the two main characters. He also has another work that I prefer more, a visual novel titled World End Economica, that is quite similar in the sense that it tackles economics.
