Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai
Boy o boy… The author certainly has to put up with a lot of criticism. This episode aired about a week ago and the internet is filled with dissatisfied anime geeks. Why? This is by no means a bad watch if you compare it to some of the others shows this season.
I make it my mission to ensure that I am honest about all of my reviews. That being said; the artwork is nothing special. It could definitely use a touch up because it is lacking in quite a few departments.
The story isn’t that bad though. I find it rather amusing. There’s a healthy amount of perverseness, comedy and even a little bit of mystery. Who knows what that Kyoutarou character is capable of at this point?
Sick and tired of those childish shows? Are you up for a laugh? Give this a chance. I will continue watching this for now, but I, of course, cannot guarantee that it remains interesting after a couple of episodes.
Plot Summary: The story is set at Shiomi Academy, a vast, prestigious academy with a Daitoshokan (literally, “great library”) that rivals Japan’s national library. As a member of the Library Club, Kyoutarou Kakei goes to Daitoshokan to enjoy reading by himself. He then meets a second-year girl named Tsugumi Shirasaki through the efforts of a so-called “shepherd” who fulfills people’s wishes. Eventually, more girls join the club thanks to the “shepherd.”
