I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I remembered my library book after I'd already started reading this. Oh well, it's going pretty quickly.
I've never played the games and know very little about the franchise, but I think I'm following along reasonably well. The only issue: when I google them, things rarely look like what I thought they'd look like. Case in point, the Grunts. Nylund said they look kind of like biped dogs. Seriously?
