Production I.G's Bungaku Shoujo Film Teaser Streamed

posted on by Egan Loo
Mizuki Nomura's school comedy about high school author, "literary" yōkai

The official website for Shunsuke Tada and Production I.G's anime film adaptation of Mizuki Nomura's "Bungaku Shōjo" ("A Literary Girl") light novel series has begun streaming a one-minute teaser trailer on Wednesday. (In the linked page, skip the Flash opening animation and then select the "Trailer" option from the top left menu.)

The "mysterious school comedy" centers on the unusual members of a high school literary club. Tōko Amano, a high school senior who calls herself the "literary girl" as the club president, is actually a supernatural creature (yōkai) 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 bishōjo novelist. The stress from the novel's fame and its movie and television drama plans turned Inoue in an introverted recluse.

The film will open in Japan during next year's Golden Week, the string of holidays that stretches from late April to early May.
