Following a terror attack in which a helicopter crashed into a nuclear power plant, the Japanese government passes a law expanding the powers of the Media Betterment Committee (MBC). Knowing that the MBC will target author Kurato Touma due to the similarities between one of his novels and the terrorists' actions, journalist Maki Orikuchi asks the Library Defense Force (LDF) to act as his bodyguards.

Meanwhile, the higher-ups of the LDF prepare to indict the MBC on the grounds that parts of its new authority are unconstitutional. With the very existence of the Media Betterment Act coming under scrutiny, the members of the Library Task Force must navigate both their blossoming relationships and the precarious political situation they find themselves in.

So how does this compare with the original anime series? The feel is more or less the same, though ...

I like how the character development progresses over the period of the movie. The story starts off a bit shallow but then, as the story progresses, becomes more in-depth and more enjoyable. For those who have not watched the original show, you have nothing to worry about. The movie explains the main part of the plot from the original series.

This movie was incredibly fun to watch and there was a lot of emotional moments especially (Without giving too much away) near the end of the film. It's one of those movies that give your soul a bit of "boost" (Sorry if that sounds corny) and ...

I read a manga adaption of this series (Library Wars: Love & War) and from the very first page I loved it, but I didn't know how much it would come to mean to me. The idea is unique to me and the characters are realistic in a way that can jump out at you if you can relate to them.

While certain things are easy to predict in this series, it's done in a way that still leaves you curious about things and this causes one to continue on with the series despite situational irony. While the main focus is events that occur in ...
