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

An anime for bookworms. Overall rating [7.6/10]


Story [8/10] - I should say first that this is not an anime a lot of people could relate into. I think that the demographic trend is towards 'book-lovers'. Things that are totally normal for them but completely odd for some. Thoughts like, "When someone asks you what your favorite book is and expects you to pick just one" or "When the movie version of a book gets everything wrong" and something like "When someone you like tells you they don’t like to read", and a lot of other things.


Art [7/10] - Not the typical shounen, action-packed animation. Bit 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
