have you watch it yet, i think it's worth watching, i can see it happens in real life...a government agency is trying to suppress any unfavorable information from getting to the public and book is one of its form, so any new books that're release will have to go through a sorting process before it would be release to the public or they may be confiscated and never return, that's a misuse of power that's all i can say.



That sorta reminds me of an episode of Kino no Tabi, where she goes to a country that only lets people read "how to" manuals and childrens books. And all the other books are confiscated when they enter the country and the people inside the castle screen through everything and either say its ok for the public or not.



this one is a bit more extreme, since they're fighting each other with weapons and people on both sides could get injure or kill...i haven't seen kino no tabi but it sounds interesting ^^



Also, similar to Library War, in that particular episode of Kino no Tabi, there was a resistance. But the resistors, resisted by publishing the books that the government disapproved. They don't show any real confrontations between the resistance and the government, but it was only one episode long. It does resolve though. (and the truth about why the government does take the books is surprising)

But generally I think people who are interested in animes like these, (animes that portrays a deeper message) should check out Kino no Tabi. That series deals with various political and philisophical issues, and have a kick ass heroine and talking motorcycle.

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.’

This is a duplicate thread. I changed the name of the other topic for easier search. I don't blame you for not catching it.
