The "mysterious school comedy" centers on the unusual members of a high-school literary club. Touko Amano, a high-school senior who calls herself the "literary girl" as the club president, is actually a supernatural creature (youkai) that devours stories — she tears pages from books to munch on them. Her club subordinate is Konoha Inoue, a second-year high-school boy who writes stories every day for Amano to eat. He once wrote an award-winning novel, but he wrote it under the penname Miu Inoue so readers thought the author was a mysterious 14-year-old bishoujo novelist. The stress from the novel's fame and its movie and television drama plans turned Inoue into an introverted recluse.

I.... I'm not entirely sure where to start on this one, so I'll just jump head first on into it like the characters in this manga.

Okay so essentially the main storyline here is depressed former writer guy meets girl who literally eats books. OOoooooo interesting start, but it soon changes from a romance story to a mystery manga. Like why is this manga so popular is the mystery. Not a lot of twists and turns, you can expect what the ending will be from the very beginning of the manga. Do be warned, its really dark (and by that I mean really emo dark read more
