Bungaku Shoujo Gets 3 All-New Anime DVD Episodes (Updated)

posted on by Egan Loo
Each DVD to focus on different character from light novels, upcoming film

Mizuki Nomura's "Bungaku Shōjo" ("A Literary Girl") light novel series will spawn three all-new original DVD episodes, in addition to Shunsuke Tada and Production I.G's previously announced anime film adaptation. The "mysterious school comedy" centers on the unusual members of a high school literary club. Each DVD will feature a booklet with a short story written by Nomura, an outer box decorated by the light novels' illustrator (Miho Takeoka), and a reversible DVD jacket with illustrations from both the light novels and the anime.

June 25's Bungaku Shōjo Memoire I -Yume-Miru Shoujo no Prelude- DVD will focus on Tōko Amano, the club president who calls herself "a literary girl" but is actually a supernatural creature (yōkai) that devours stories — she tears pages from books to munch on them. October 29's Bungaku Shōjo Memoire II -Sora-Mau Tenshi no Requiem- will focus on Miu Asakura, the childhood friend of the main male character (Konoha Inoue). December 24's Bungaku Shōjo Memoire III -Koi Suru Otome no Rhapsody- will focus on Nanase Kotobuki, Konoha's classmate and the club's librarian.

The anime film will open in Japan on May 1.
