Fair enough. I do kind of wonder what the Japanese cover of the Neverending Story looks like now though. I know the US version is deliberately minimalist and (presumably like the European cover) designed to evoke the cover of the book within the book, and I wonder if the Japanese version is the same way.Yeah, it just came out a year or two ago, though I doubt it really has anything to do with "the isekai boom." It's not like it wasn't popular before that.
I don't know any other C. S. Ruisu writing about magical lions in winter, so I guess so!I take it that's a new edition of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe? (I'm guessing to capitalize on the Isekai boom?)
