Bungaku Shoujo's Mysteries Get Anime

Bungaku Shoujo
, an award-winning mystery light novel which recently began a manga adaptation run, is reportedly going to get an anime adaptation.

The series is centered around a high school lit club with slightly unusual members...its president, Touko, is actually a demon that eats stories. Literally. The second member of the club, a boy named Konoha, writes stories, from daily shorts for Touko's consumption to an award-winning novel written under a pen name. The popularity of the novel stresses Konoha out, though, and he's become a bit of a shut-in as a result.

The anime will be a theatrical film, but no release date or other information has been announced...yet. I'm looking forward to it though, because I remember thinking the series sounded interesting the first time I reported on it!

The series definitely sounds pretty interesting. I've only been able to find a translation of the manga so far though, but I'll definitely check out the anime.
