Manga series written and drawn by Cocoa Fujiwara and published by Creator/SquareEnix consisting of two parts:

'''''Watashi no Ookami-san ("My Wolf-san")'''''

Komomo, a [[ClassAndLevelSystem level 0 hero]], has taken up a life of adventure, hoping to earn enough money to eventually fulfill her dream of buying a house. Unfortunately, she's too poor to take the level-up qualification exam, so she's stuck with "quests" which are really basically community service projects. Hoping to change her lot, she enters the castle of the demon-lord. She charges him with her sword raised... and he sweeps her into a hug, asking why she doesn't come to visit him more often. Turns out the BigBad is a {{bishonen}} named Subaru who's more interested in sitting under the {{kotatsu}} watching television and [[TheGlomp glomping]] on Komomo than trying to take over the world, much to the consternation of his {{mook}}s. When they gather together and demand that he ban her from the castle, he agrees... and resigns his post so he can go with her. Thus, Komomo sets out into the world with her "level 2000" [[HeIsNotMyBoyfriend definitely-not-her-boyfriend]], who is effectively her DiscOneNuke since he can instantly vaporize anything that threatens her. (Which annoys her, she doesn't want to [[{{Munchkin}} twink]]).

The series started out as a short-run gag manga consisting of a mash-up of {{Shoujo}} romance and [[RPGMechanicsVerse every single video game RPG cliché]] you've ever seen, but proved popular enough to spawn a second volume, telling the tale of Purino, one of Subaru's chief lieutenants, a very clumsy girl who sets out to find him hoping he can cure her oncoming lycanthropy. Afterwards transitioning into...

'''''Dear'''''

The sequel series begins with a young girl [[TheCutie Chiruha]] who also turns out to be the last surviving member of the lycanthrope race and her childhood friend Kisara, who has been CursedWithAwesome. They are later joined by the returning cast: Komomo, Subaru, Carol, Kurenai and Purino. A somewhat more serious twelve volume series, with longer story arcs and a little more work on the world being consistent and logical, though with plenty of gags thrown in, too.

Not to be confused with ''Manga/{{DearS}}''.

!!Contains Examples Of:

* AuthorAvatar: In the mailbag sections, Fujiwara usually portrays herself as one of the demons in that volume.
* AttractiveBentGender: Kisara, just Kisara.
* BastardBoyfriend: Komomo sometimes imagines Subaru this way when he's messing with her a bit, though in reality he's incredibly caring and considerate toward her.
* {{Bishonen}}: The whole main male cast.
* ButtMonkey: Kurenai, for Carol and Subaru mostly.
* CerebusSyndrome: The story begins to get more serious and less lighthearted starting with volume 8.
* CuteLittleFangs: Chiruha.
* TheCutie: Chiruha, Komomo, and, well, pretty much every female character. Fujiwara even describes them as "prettyish lolitas".
* {{Dojikko}}: Purino.
* FantasticRacism: Komomo gets this for being a "magic holder," even though she never once uses any magic.
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: Chiruha and Kisara. Also proves to be an important point later when [[spoiler: Chiruha turns out to be unable to heal herself because she had passed her immortality to Kisara]].
* JerkassFacade: Subaru sometimes plays this card to keep Komomo and Kurenai off-balance, but very lightly and always PlayedForLaughs.
* {{Kotatsu}}: Subaru spends most of his time under one in the first chapter.
* LovingBully: Subaru toward Komomo, but not physically. He just thinks she's really cute when her buttons are pushed.
-->'''Komomo:''' You!! You're doing this on purpose aren't you?!
-->'''Subaru:''' Because the Komomo that's being tortured by inferiority is just so adorable... it turns me on.
* MakeAWish: Chiruha wishes for someone who will love her.
* NarratorAllAlong: The narration at the end of the first chapter turns out to be Subaru with a microphone. He then continues in the introduction to the second chapter.
* NobleDemon: Subaru takes this and AffablyEvil [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/watashi_no_ookami_san/v01/c001/7.html to its logical (and hilarious) extreme]].
* {{Ojou}}: Purino. Though not many in the Demon Lord's castle knows about her wealth - which is a good thing.
* OurDemonsAreDifferent: They're... {{bishonen}} and [[{{Moe}} cute, clumsy girls]]? Though some genuinely scary demons are encountered later.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Lycanthropes are a friendly race of [[MoeAnthropomorphism moe anthropomorphs]].
* SchizoTech: A high-fantasy world with sword-wielding warriors... and cable television, handguns, and HumongousMecha. This is partly because it was originally supposed to be a quick gag manga, so the author was concentrating more on RuleOfFunny than proper world building.
* SecretlyDying: [[spoiler:Subaru, though he's trying to keep it from Komomo.]]
* SlapSlapKiss: Komomo to Subaru. He's MadeOfIron so it mostly amuses him.
* StepfordSmiler: Chiruha. Having the HealingFactor means she ends up the punching bag of random people who won't leave evidence behind because those bruises are just going to fade away.
** Also Subaru, since [[spoiler: his arm is slowly consuming him but he wants to see Komomo smiling for his time remaining]].
* {{Tsundere}}: Komomo, though she tends to flip between the A and B types a lot.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Purino freaks out over a bug, Kurenai "hates crippling insects", Carol doesn't like rats, and Chiruha is scared of SMPTE color bars.
* [[YaoiFangirl YaoiFanboy]]: Subtly done, but in Watashi no Ookami-san Komomo bursts in to find Subaru watching a BL show.
