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 Tooko, a beautiful girl who has a taste for eating literary works. Now he has been tasked with writing her snack every day after school.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
A good piece of literature can be food for the soul. Or so they say.

For one particular schoolgirl, this has a whole new meaning to it. Amano Touko, a self-proclaimed “Literature Girl”, loves her stories. Not just reading them, she also eats them. This is not done on a whim as Touko practically depends on literary pieces as her main source of sustenance.

What a novel idea! Or so I thought.

Well, this newly discovered diet has little to do with the real story here. There’s also no explanation given as to why eating books are sufficient nourishment for the body. But that doesn’t matter anyway. ...

First to say, i liked Bungaku Shoujo 1st OVA. i liked the idea of a cute, pure love between a (yokai???) girl who eats the stories and a boy who writes stories for girls.
But, despite of the name of the movie and despite of our expectations, the movie isn't about this love. It is even not about that Literature Girl, but about an insane, egoistic bitch who blames every person in her troubles, and during the whole movie all the characters try to calm her, but they fail. The most bad thing is that the protagonist believes her and thereby doesn't notice other people's feelings. ...
