Synopsis

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 dismissed 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 to write her snack every day after school.

If you have heard or have read (which i bet most of you have not) Osamu Dazai's "Ningen Shikkaku", Japan's #2 best selling novel, its based on this. It read more

In terms of plot, I couldn't enjoy its fullest because I don't read hardcore literature as much, but if you're someone who does, I highly recommend this novel to you.
