She is called Dalian and has a big lock hanging before her. She herself is the gateway to the "Bibliotheca Mystica de Dantalian", which contains the prohibited "Phantom Books".
I realize that the novel series is complete with eight volumes but I find this series very good. Not going to lie, the anime first got me into this.

I was somewhat surprised to see that there was no thread for this to begin with.

Does it do harm to discuss it at the least? I would think after the anime had ended that people would be looking to get into the series and ask for spoilers and the like. You or perhaps someone else would probably look into it if people requested.

Well what I'm saying is that there isn't any harm in making the thread.

I agree.

Personally, I want to know that how many girls like Danlian there are throughout the whole story.

Only 3. And it's hard to discuss a series that barely has any overarching plot.

Dantalian no Shoka is all about short stories then?

Pretty much. There are some reappearing characters, though. Like Jessica, the Phantom Book Burglar (if I remember correctly), etc.

Then again, IMO it's not a good story that makes Dantalian no Shoka, but a nice atmosphere and likable characters. And above all, G-Yuusuke's art.
It was always fun to immerse myself in the world of DnS every time a new volume came out.

Also, I have to say I felt that the violence dropped a little in the later volumes in favor of somewhat lighter stories. :/ Perhaps that's just me, though.

I liked the anime of this quite a bit, and the novel is quite good as well, so a thread is a good idea.

Maybe someone should make a Rental Magica thread too...

But wait, Eusth, is there a plot behind Dantalian no Shoka then?

@Endscape There isn't one??? Holy, I always thought there is since the series in 2-cour.
