Japanese adult game maker August announced on Thursday that an anime adaptation of its Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai: A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd visual novel has been green-lit. More information will be posted on the official website.
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, Kyōtarō 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."
August just released the game for Windows this past January. Akane Sasaki has been drawing the main manga adaptation in ASCII Media Works' Dengeki G's Magazine since last year. Below are the game's promotional and opening videos:
