本好きの下剋上 home thread

Well, the major difference is the point of view. The novel is told from マイン’s perspective, but the anime, by nature, has to be external. I guess it makes it harder to transmit what マイン is feeling about the world, what she is misunderstanding, etc.
Things were also reordered around for the purpose of story flow.

Hm, that’s also the comments I have seen online. It seems to go novel > manga > anime.
