Of Anime and the Baeci by Alessandra Ebulu

I recently received a copy of "Of Anime and the Baeci" from Less Than Three Press through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. Here is the cover and the Goodreads blurb:

All Ray wants is peace and quiet—something he is never going to get with his idiotic neighbor blasting anime and crazy music at all hours. When he finally breaks down and asks Cata to knock it off, he doesn't expect a friendship to develop. And he definitely does not anticipate a romance.

A romance he fears won't last, given that Ray is much more than he seems and only in the apartment building because he's desperately searching for a serial killer—and trying to keep Cata from becoming the next victim.

This book was interesting. I enjoyed all of the talk of anime and the sweet character of Cata. I did feel like the reader needed more explanation of the characters and the situation. There was definitely some sci-fi shenanigans going on but it wasn't well explained or described. I enjoyed the friendship to romance story line. I also loved the beautiful descriptions of Cata's apartment. The author described everything so vividly that I could almost see it all in gorgeous, colorful detail. I only wish that an explanation of the inhuman character's world and motivations had been as descriptive. I felt as if I was missing something as I read.
