Synopsis

The protagonist of the story, Konoha Inoue, is a seemingly normal senior high 2nd year student. His high school life, other than a hinted incident 2 years ago, can be summed up as normal- if one can dismiss the secret fact that he used to be a female bestselling romance author. Due to that incident, however, he has now vowed never to write again.

This continued on until he was forced to join the literary club by the literary club president, the 3rd year female student Amano Touko, a beautiful girl who has a taste for eating literary works. Now he has been tasked with writing her snack every day after school.

We can't change the fact that we have moments when our feelings do get over our heads and we start to get paranoid about our failures, pasts, and regrets. It's part of growing up and there are even times when our life seemed to be at the edge and we seemed to be waiting for the right time to heal. Bungaku Shoujo takes up a light atmosphere to somewhere deep inside ourselves that we never want to -- our jealousy, depression and our horrible memories.

It's a very deceiving move to watch an anime/movie of a person eating a piece of paper from a book. That read more

When the teaser preview special for Bungaku Shoujo was released earlier this year I was a bit tepid in my enthusiasm for this project. It looked quite lovely and it featured several of my favorite seiyuu talents, so I made a point to give this a try when it finally became available. As someone without any knowledge of the original light novels, I found this film to be mostly directionless and confusing and in the end only a very average experience.

Bungaku Shoujo or Literature Girl is about a young girl, Touka Amano who eats books. Yes she literally eats books. She read more

In this review I want to use Bungaku Shōjo’s style of associating stories with various tastes. I don’t know about the rest of the world, but in my country there are vitamin C pills sold at the chemist’s. Those pills consist of sweet coat to prepare you for bad thing, bitter middle layer, where the actual medicine is located, and honeyed core to wash away the after-taste. Bungaku Shōjo has that kind of a story.

The first OVA has Japanese girl talking about some story written by the Russian classic author. I was impressed, not by the story, but by the whole concept. That cute and read more

I tried very hard to envision what I imagined the movie to be like. After watching the three-episode prelude to the movie's release, I was interested to see that there was 3 competing characters after 1 boy. Typical harem-type thing. But I saw through that and saw a deeper meaning to the diverse female love square, thing.

The movie itself is set almost concurrently alongside all of the 3 episodes, and also assumes that you have watched the episodes, in sort of an "Unlimited Blade Works" sort of way. I don't feel that anyone could understand the three main heroines if they have not seen read more

Both story revolve around a schools literary club. The members work on building relationships with each other and the style for the characters is similar.

Both are really beautiful and it'S story is definitely amazing but also confusing you.  
reportRecommended by Rito-kun
Both are about a boy in a very similar love triangle, and both give you a "lesson" feeling.  
reportRecommended by Orulyon
Bungaku Shoujo draws inspiration from the book Night on the Galactic Railroad is derived from. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
Both Anime are about a young man who is trying to figure his life out and dealing with situations most high school students their age don't normally deal with. They also have a small bit of romance. 
reportRecommended by Yemi_Hikari
Both animes are similar in that the main girl protagonist falls in love with a boy through her love of his works. In Bungaku Shoujo Touko enjoys the depths and feelings of Konoha's writings, while in Otome Nadeshiko Koi Techou Chizuru falls in love with Sougetsu's drawings. She can see past his gloomy drawings and understands the true beauty of his paintings. In addition, the atmosphere in both are very similar with how they're both calm and relaxing with moments of excitement and beauty when it comes to describing each guy's works.
