Bungaku Shoujo (2010)

Bungaku Shoujo

after finishing his classes for the day, Inoue was just about to leave the school campus while he saw a girl tearing down a small piece of paper from the book that she was reading n putting it into her mouth, savoring it. the girl saw him n forced him to join the Literature Club so he wouldn't expose her secret. her name was Touko, the Bungaku Shoujo (literature girl). they were the only members of the club, where Inoue had to write a short story for Touko everyday. one day, a strange message arrived, with a peculiar drawing on it. the drawing led them to Inoue's past n the reason he gave up writing in the first place.

it was strange yet fascinating being introduced a girl who was very into reading n treated novels as snacks by really eating them! however, the anime didn't relate in any way to the supernatural, she was solely a cute character with very rich imagination. Inoue was her so-called food-supplier, an average teenage with great talent in writing. every exchange between Touka n Inoue was humorous, making it the focus of this anime. overall, nothing much happened, yet i found it highly enjoyable n beautifully light.
