Despite being around a decade older than her, Library Task Force (LTF) member Mikihisa Komaki has been friends with Marie Nakazawa, a girl from his neighborhood, ever since she was little. Their relationship perseveres through thick and thin, and when Marie suddenly develops a hearing impairment during her middle school days, Komaki is there to support her—often by selecting books for her enjoyment.

But one fateful morning, Komaki finds himself arrested by the Media Betterment Committee, which charges him with invading the privacy of a minor due to the supposedly insensitive content of one of his recommended novels. Knowing that what awaits their friend at the "inquiry" is more akin to torture, the members of the LTF look for ways to save Komaki before it is too late.

By today's standards the main series and this episode look great.

More specials should have this level of ...

So just to give a little heads up for you Library Wars fans out there, this will be but a short n sweet review to get the (review) ball rolling.

Story: Basically without giving too much away: it revolves around how gossip and misunderstanding of others can sway people to outrageous assumptions that lead to disastrous results. Simply believing someone is wretched or helpless or taken advantage of without knowledge or true insight into such situations always seems to get "The mob" riled up, torches lit and pitchforks sharpened and ready to poke( OWIE). However...anyone whos anyone will know that since most people are dumb and ...
