On the eighth day of Christmas, Madman announced the license to A Good Librarian Like A Good Shepherd (Dai Toshokan no Hitsujikai). AnimeLab will stream the series in 2015, and a home video release will follow at a later date.
Animated by Hoods Entertainment (Mysterious Girlfriend X, Fantatista Doll, If Her Flag Breaks and more), this is an adaptation of the eroge visual novel of the same name by August. FUNimation has been simulcasting the series with English subtitles for audiences in the USA, and the final episode is due to air on Christmas Eve. The series is described as follows:
Kyotaro Kakei is a shy student at a prestigious academy known for its massive library. The sole member of the school’s library club, Kyotaro’s always been better with books than girls – until a text message from the mysterious “Shepherd” hints that his fate will soon be changing. Life gets wild in a hurry after a vision allows Kyotaro to rescue Tsugumi, a beautiful girl who also received a text message from the “Shepherd.” Soon, Tsugumi announces her intentions to join the Library Club and, with Kyotaro’s help, make school life much more interesting! It doesn’t take long for a host of other pretty girls to follow Tsugumi’s lead and join the club in the hopes of spicing up their boring academy lives. But just who is this “Shepherd,” what does he or she have to do with the Library Club’s sudden popularity, and how in the world will Kyotaro survive being surrounded by all these girls!?
