The Literature Club consists of only two people: Konoha Inoue and Amano Tooko. Tooko makes Konoha join the Literature Club, when he finds out her secret; she eats stories, literally. He has to write a story everyday for her to eat. One day, a young girl,Chia-chan, arrives, asking the Literature Club if they could write a love letter to a guy she likes, Shuuji-senpai. But there is no evidence that this Shuuji-senpai even exists. Just who is Shuuji-senpai...
The "mysterious school comedy" centers on the unusual members of a high-school literary club. Touko Amano, a high-school senior who calls herself the "literary girl" as the club president, is actually a supernatural creature (youkai) that devours stories — she tears pages from books to munch on them. Her club subordinate is Konoha Inoue, a second-year high-school boy who writes stories every day for Amano to eat. He once wrote an award-winning novel, but he wrote it under the penname Miu Inoue so readers thought the author was a mysterious 14-year-old bishoujo novelist. The stress from the novel's fame and its movie and television drama plans turned Inoue into an introverted recluse.
