The official website for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of August's adult PC game Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai: A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd announced today on May 14 that it will start this October. The official Twitter account for the TV anime also launches today. The game was released in Japan in January 2013 for Windows PCs and has become one of the recent most successful adult games (I have seen so many street ads for the game in Akihabara).
The story revolves around the main protagonist Kyotaro Kakei, who is the sole member of the Library Club at Shiomi Academy. One day he receives an email from the "shepherd" (hitsujikai) who is said to be able to fulfill any wishes. It says, "You will experience a life changing event today." After an encounter with a second-year girl Tsugumi Shirasaki on the day, more and more girls join the club to be with him.
