The publisher Enterbrain has begun streaming the full 110-second trailer for Shunsuke Tada and Production I.G's anime film adaptation of Mizuki Nomura's "Bungaku Shoujo" ("A literary girl") light novel on Saturday. The same trailer is also streaming on the anime's official website. The film will open in Japan on May 1.
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 but beautiful 14-year-old girl. The stress from the novel's fame and its movie and television drama plans turned Inoue in an introverted recluse.
The Amazon online retailer is streaming 95 seconds of new footage from the Haiyoru! Nyaru-Ani Flash anime adaptation of Manta Aisora and Koin's Haiyore! Nyaruko-san "high-tension, chaotic comedy" light novels. DLE, the studio behind the Eagle Talon Flash anime series, is producing Haiyoru! Nyaru-Ani. Azuma Tani is not only directing the anime project, but also DLE's Licca-chan to Mahō no Kuni Flash anime. The anime will ship in a special box with the fourth light novel volume on March 17.
The story centers around Nyarlathotep, a formless Cthulhu deity who can take on the shape of anyone it wishes, but particularly the shape of a seemingly ordinary silver-haired girl. Mahiro Yasaka is a normal high school student who is chased by aliens one night, until "Nyaruko" saves him.
