Making the worldbuilding

That doesn't help in the slightest. That being said, I wasn't a huge fan of the plot itself, either. The sea dragon who consumed the island of Takaiyama. And while even that could have also potentially yielded something problematic, at least it would have been sincere. Make me not want to put the book down out of sheer boredom.

This is not how you write this shit, people. She didn't want to listen to those three awful words, feel them open her up to the bone and see what the lies had done to her insides. That came as a genuine shock. This book made me really fucking mad. But blah blah blah, detail-heavy writing, I can skim past that.

Making the world-building harder to parse are the Japanese words and terms strewn throughout the descriptions, most of which assume a familiarity with the culture that many readers just won't have. This pretty effectively proved to me that, either by fuck-up or by intent, the characters in the book are speaking English.

This pretty effectively

At the very least it's unnecessarily confusing. Work this stuff in to the action.
