This obscure series is a real gem, a slow-paced, relaxing anime, with a light soundtrack and simple plots, light comedy and mild drama, very cute and very addicting.

The 2.6/5 rating does this series no justice. It is vastly underrated. It's about three sisters who take on the responsibility of running a library that was built by their parents. Each episode is a standalone work, focuses on the simple things, and encourages believing in the goodness of people. It's quiet, lighthearted, and warming. I think it's a lot like Girls' Last Tour, Laid-Back Camp, A Place Further than the Universe, and Hakumei and Mikochi. It's not filled with action and adventure, nor does it have complex story development and mind bending plot twists. What it does provide is a break from fast-paced anime that keeps you on edge by providing tender stories that will have you slow down appreciate what's important in life.
