Are they trying to attract young audiences or are they trying to attract old men?

This really looks like almost the same mistake Ghostlight did when they released the CG cover for Agarest Senki. All the fans went OMG NO, and they finally scrapped it, I think.

Hur hur...

it looks like it wouldn't be out of place in a barnes & noble outside of the manga section. since that's the look they were going for i think that they succeeded.

I believe that far FAR more discretion should have been used, since there are a few objects in Spice and Wolf that could easily be identifiable while simultaneously holding genuine meaning. Now I have to order the book and the magazine (to acquire the original book cover) as a Christmas gift. I don't even want to imagine anymore the questions my mom will fire at me on that horrible horrible morning... ;;

Most of all, it's being released in the Young Adult Fiction section. Also my couple isn't some highschool/teenage romance, it's a 24 year old merchant and a roughly thousand year old "demigod." There's absolutely nothing "Young Adult" about it.

I'm also sorry for any buyer who isn't prepared for a lesson in economics, since that's roughly the entire estimate of the world's current population, novel after novel after novel after apples after coins after novel. Dear new readers without a simple economics class, you're not going to be understanding the mechanics at all.

First glance, I'd say it's a pornographic novel.
As thy Internet would say, It's 3d pig disgusting and 2d wins.

Hur hur...
Or Utawarerumono --> Shadow Chronicle Warrior ( )

And looks like someone had too much fun drawing a furry for the cover.
