Hajime Kamoshida and illustrator Kēji Mizoguchi’s Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai light novel first hit Japanese retailers in April 2014. Seven volumes were released through December 2016.
Yen Press describes the title as:
Bunny girls do not live in libraries. This is simply common sense. And yet, that’s exactly where Sakuta runs into one in the wild. More bewildering is who the bunny girl is: Mai Sakurajima, an older student who attends the same school and is a well-known actress currently on break from industry work. Wanting to find out more about the mystery surrounding Mai and maybe get a little closer to her in the process, Sakuta launches an investigation to figure out what’s causing this bunny girl to be invisible and unnoticed by everyone around them.
