"The Shepherd," an urban legend of Shiomi Academy, is said to appear before hardworking students to grant them a wish.

While engrossed in a book inside the school's renowned Great Library, Kyoutarou Kakei, a second year student and the Library Club's de facto president, receives an email from the Shepherd foretelling an event that will change his fate. Worried by the message, Kyoutarou rushes over to a nearby train station and encounters fellow student Tsugumi Shirasaki, whom he saves from being hit by a derailing train. Grateful for his heroic actions, Tsugumi joins the Library Club and invites Kyoutarou to participate in her mysterious "Shiomi Happy Project." Together with other new members of the club, they strive to make the academy a better place and uncover the identity of the enigmatic Shepherd.

Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai was a good story that showed different types of characters and was more or less a stereotypical harem anime. The difference in this was one was that it gave a little something more on the harem plot and it was an interesting story.

Story: The story about all of the characters wanting to find themselves and become someone they want to be proud of is nice. Adding the romance on top of it helps it all go together quite nicely and gives something that was enjoyable.

Art: The art for this anime was good, I liked the designs of the characters a ...

Mixed Feelings
When the series started, I wanted to like it but little niggly bits constantly started to annoy me. As it went on further and more episodes passed, so did my ratings of this show as i felt it showed plot holes.

The idea seems a good story, guardian angels of a sort are working in the background to give humanity its best chance without people ever knowing, yet somehow can email people and interact with them, even admitting they are these people with no actual oversight.

Story- Had potential but, the characters never get developed. The romance is terrible. All the girls like the MC but, are to pansy to say it. They try to give them compelling stories that i didn't care for. You feel like it's going to turn into a harem but, we don't even get that. The real story is barely explained and can be completely ignored. The ending is very cheap and unsatisfying. 4/10

Art: Meh, slightly below average not amazing, but nothing to cry over. 4/10

Sound: Don't remember a single track (Just finished it 7 minutes ago) Sound effects were average. Great voice acting. 4/10

Characters: The ...
