It's just a short OVA, it lasts only 15 minutes. If you liked Bungaku Shoujo the movie, you'll like this too. Actually, the OVA was released before the movie, but it's essentially more of the same except without all the angst and the emotional turmoil of the movie. It's just Tooko and Konoha in the literature club room, talking about books. Tooko asks Konoha to write a "snack" for her, and he does so. It's cute and leaves you with a smile.

The story in this OVA was a simple yet very satisfying story. It explored the greatness of literature and fiction stories, and made it good. The story is about a boy and a girl in the literature club, and the girl has an "appetite" for stories, and the boy delivers the goods. The conversations that they have leave the audience wondering what their relationship is, which is very entertaining. Sometimes the simplest plots are the best.


The animation in Bungaku Shoujo is very good. It takes advantage of the symbolism which is absolutely neccesary in order to tell the story. In a way the art made the story good.


As I have said before the characters have a relationship that is ambigious, which I like. I do think that the girl is slightly wierd with her "appetite" for literature, but that helped to make her an enjoyable character. The boy was also entertaining and enjoyable with his apathetic attitude.


This OVA is a gem in the world of short, one episode OVAs, which usually try a plot that is too ambitious to pull of, but Bungaku Shoujo does not and is quite enjoyable.
