Synopsis

​Sawako Machida—or "Miss Bernard," as she prefers to be called—can frequently be found in the school library with a book in hand. Whether or not she has read it, however, is another matter entirely. In her own words, Sawako finds it too much work to actually read, and would rather just make others believe she spends a lot of time reading. But in the same library where she constantly hangs out, there are other students who love books and are quite upset with her disdainful approach to reading their favorite titles.

As she pretends to read and discuss great literary works amid eccentric book lovers, Sawako finds herself learning something after all, as well as making new friends along the way.

If you browse /lit/, you should watch this anime. If not, you can still watch it and have fun. Most of the comedy and cute moments are pretty accessible. As a bonus, at least the yuri ship is still alive after the last episode. Take that Euphonium.

Bernard-jou Iwaku is a short comedy series featuring essentially a memetastic representation of the average reader on /lit/, the kind of person constantly asking for what books to read, how to read, what lists to consult, and whether completing the holy trinity will ever allow her to amount to anything, all while never summoning the motivation to finish the read more

Fall 2016 opened the floodgates to smorgasbord of anime shorts, from Chinese co-produced anime shorts to just a plethora of anime shorts, one of LA's more interested anime shorts was Bernard-jou Iwaku and by god did LA make a right pick with this one.

You know that ONE person who wants to be in on the conversation but has utterly no material to start, so then that person starts talking about something else but using your conversation material as a jumping board...this is Sawako Machida.

Really LA just summed up Bernard-jou Iwaku and that's not a bad thing AT ALL, simplistic and great in execution and really read more

Bernard-jou Iwaku is a 5 minute anime about a wannabe reader that doesn't like to read, she just likes the look of a person that is talking about a book and she want to have that kind of aura that says, "Yeah, i read books i'm very smart".

Story: 6 out of 10

It is a 5 min anime, the objective isn't to have a great and deep story but have a little, funny and enjoyable story. This kind of story isn't an engaging, but is a very enjoyable story from the first until the last moment,

Art: 7 out of 10

The story isn't a work of art, read more

Bernard-jou Iwaku has no right to be as good as it is. It's just a set of very quick gag shorts that proceed at lightning pace, shoving a ton of book references and witty book-nerd rants into just a few seconds of decent, but ultimately uninspired, animation. So...blah, right?

Well, no. I admit that I was drawn to this short because I love books and I couldn't resist the premise. I kept watching because the antics of Machida Sawako, the laziest reader of all time, were hilarious. And I just couldn't get enough of her hilarious trolling that inevitably led to regular meltdowns on the part read more
