I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
This popped up on my radar when someone described it as "f/f sea monster and pirate YA." I sent an interlibrary loan request only to realize that I had requested it the same day it came out. I figured my request would eventually be denied. Except it wasn't.
So now, less than two weeks after the book was released, I get to read a copy that comes from a library a thousand miles away.
