Dantalian no Shoka

Hugh Anthony Disward inherits an old mansion and a personal library from his grandfather. In the basement of the mansion, he meets a mysterious girl, Dalian. She is a Dantalian and a gateway to "Dantalian's bookshelf", which stores the prohibited books of the demons.

"Gensho (Illusory Books)", the prohibited books, endanger the balance of the world, but people are fascinated by the taboo. Hugh and Dalian solve the cases involving Gensho with their ability to access the Dantalian bookshelf.

I thought this show would be a complete swing and a miss, but episode 1 was a pleasant surprise! Will follow. :]

Hm.
Spoiler :
This seems to be monster-of-the-week or well, phantom book of the week. I can't say the show has particularly captured my attention at this point. I'll certainly give it a few more episodes to see if it becomes more interesting. I absolutely love the premise of all these forbidden books, but somehow I'm not liking the magical-girl-transform scene type thing they do. Dalian is cute but she seems like a clone of Victorique. And her attitude is kinda irritating. I see so much potential that just isn't being touched upon...well, yet...

I sorta wish they elaborated on the children in episode 3, but otherwise I really enjoyed that episode. : D

Yeah, though I'm hoping I'll like this one more than GOSICK. I think I already like Dalian more than Victorique (at least whenever she wants candy its somewhat comically amusing).

I have a bad feeling about the children... And yeah, I do like Dalian better than Victorique.

I personally like Victorique more (probably because of her voice actor)

Catching up now.
Episode 5 was Stephen King'as Misery in anime form. In almost every aspect.
Which was cool, but I kept chuckling to myself from all the Misery references I made in my head as I watched. xD
