図書館戦争 (Japanese)



Genre(s): Military, Action, Comedy, Romance
Number of episodes: 12
Japanese Air Date: April 10th, 2008


Based on a light novel series. In the year 2019, the explosion of information and misinformation became a direct threat to society. In a daring decision, it was decided to create a new government agency dedicated solely to information management. Now some thirty years later, the government still monitors and controls information, suppressing anything they find undesirable, but standing against their abuses of power are the libraries, with their special agents called ‘the book soldiers.’

I'm not so sure about this anime. The title is what caught my attention.

i think its really interesting about protecting information that may not put the government in good light. Its more orientated towards the older audience who have an understanding about the value of information. Not for people who like anime's like shugo chara, or kanokon. You need to be a little more mature to really enjoy this. i think its going a little bit fast.

It has war in the name so I guess I'll be watching it! XD

It would be like R.O.D. but in a more realistic setting. Maybe someday what happens in the anime could also happen in real life O_o

Already has more than a few times. History repeats itself, and no matter how many times humans as a whole try, we fail and mistakes repeat them selfs. Wars are a perfect example. We say this'll be the last one, then ten years later we've got another war going on.

Information is always important in crucial times, war not being an exception, therefore control of information isnt exactly something new in war times, diferent secret services were developt, in ww2. And one caracteristic of Totalitarianism is the control of information to secure support in the regime, with that said i dont have a clue if the anime is good or not, (until i see it).
A good concept about information control was developt in a part of Ghost in the Shell GITS very nicely, im refering to information can be controled but it is a matter of time until it is known. That thing about the books reminds me of that movie Equilibrium, maybe some things are from there.
