I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
The author's habit of using similes and descriptions that reference technology and general steampunky things has taken an unfortunate turn. Thomas Edison has been mentioned in a sex scene. Once I got past the brief moment of horror, I was helpless with laughter. Pretty sure that's not what the author was going for.
(Also just realized that the total number of minutes has been wrong for all my status updates. Oops.)
