During the 31st year of Seika, the battle between the Library Force and the Media Improvement Committee reached a new level of violence. Each group has armed itself for either the freedom of expression or the "protection" of society from the bad influences of media.

Kasahara Iku joins the Library Force with the intent of finding her "Prince" who helped her during a censorship exercise by the Media Improvement Committee and with her strong will of protecting books.

i really enjoyed this manga. I read it as it came out in North America so I was able to not binge read and appreciate the plot more.
The story deals with a military force who protect books. For some people this may be ridiculous but to me it was quite realistic (but maybe that's because I enjoy reading a lot). the premise reminded me of Bootleg or Chocolate Underground. I enjoyed how every action in the series had purpose. It wasn't all just that oh we did a thing, it's all good, nothing matters now and it really showed how interconnected the read more

The mood of the story doesn't stay in one spot for a long amount of time and the things that occur stay in motion and are not forgotten (which happens at times in other mangas). There are suspenseful, though-provoking, tough, sweet, sweaty, and many funny times that interchange throughout the book at points when you least suspect it. There is a special and well-exhibited unexpected combination of the gentle and rough, the thinkers and fighters, that makes it seem like they were meant for each other. The further along in the series you go, the more you learn about the unique pasts of the characters read more

This is my most Favorite Manga. I agree with another critic, laughing so hard = exhausted. The action and suspenseful romantic scenes are great too. The reason why I said it's "suspenseful romantic" is because 10 volumes in and well ... let me put it this way:
You want MORE!!!
I am always on the edge of my seat to get the next volume.
I absolutely love all the characters.
(Especially Dojo) ^-^

Ps. Do not forget to read the bonus manga's at the end of each volume. They are usually really funny and sweet.

Kiiro Yumi & Hiro Arikawa are the greatest!

I have a very low tolerance for annoying characters and over-used clichés. This story has both in spades and I can’t put up with it anymore. I was initially drawn to this series because it was about government censorship and I liked the anime a lot so I figured I would love the manga. Well I don’t. Why? Because despite this being about an adult woman in the military, Iku is your typical shoujo heroine: socially awkward, air headed, clumsy/not good at anything (well except for physical fitness), damsel in distress, and a complete crybaby. She is practically crying every other chapter and is being read more
