I have to admit, Miss Bernard is funny at least for a girl who is a literature fanatic.

Not impressed by the visual quality but the comedy is kinda amusing. DIRECT HIT

Is this supposed to be Tekkyuu in a library? Because that's what it looks like.

this one's interesting a little bit on the fast paced side but that's ok. one thing I can say for sure is I'm going to learn a lot about books watching this.

I was excited about this one at first, cause I love classic literature, but the execution is very off putting. The characters talk way too fast and I was bored the whole time.

The characters seem all over the place tho that's normal for a 5 minute anime.
For now things seem ok tho the short hair girl seemed annoying.

This was funny to watch. I haven't read any books in a long time, so I might learn something from this short series. The dialogue for this first episode was pretty fast though, but the comedy is good.

My first impression is a great big "meh." But it's a short, time commitment is negligible, I'll definitely keep watching for now.

The humor is ok. Really digging the art style, though. The characters look adorable and really suit the anime comedy short format.

Well just like the Synopsis said, Sawako isn't reading that much and Shiori's around to "correct" and also lecture her. 15 Minutes and extra punch. Ouch. LOL

They speak too fast sometimes ugh. I dislike this ep but I will not drop this show I can't. I think I can like Shiori. She seems to be a nice girl.

uummmmm wow, like, lets slow that don't a bit maybe? Art-style was pretty entertaining at some points, but looked off at others, not too bad for a short though. Kinds funny.

I'm not that much of a reader, so it looks like if nothing else, I can learn a bit about books from this anime. Hopefully the characters don't talk as fast in future episodes though.

If they're talking about revised titles then they should have brought up And Then There Were None.

Booknerds the anime.

I like it very much. My favorite character is Shiori. She looks a bit like the Literary Gril from Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou.

It is, but with less perverts, tsukkomi, and Kanae

How can you NOT like reading? I know everyone is different but pretending to be a bookworm when you can't even stand reading makes you a poser. Metal poser. Rocker poser. Hip hop poser. Poseur.
There is no such thing as an Anime elitist. You watch Anime, therefore, you are trash by society's standards.

I liked it. It was slightly amusing, short, plus now I have more additions to my book list. I'll probably keep watching for the books mentioned if nothing else :D

It's funny. I know a guy that doesn't read the books, but think it's an especialist too.

I think that's the point. While we occasionally see bookworms in anime, this is the first anime I've seen that pokes fun at poseurs, at least literature ones.

If you're thinking of dropping the series (it's only 36 minutes long), just jump to ep 12. Around ep 8 or 9, they look at the friendship (?) of Sawako and Shiori.
