 Summary


In the near future, the federal government creates a committee to rid society of books it deems unsuitable. The libraries vow to protect their collections, and with the help of local governments, form a military group to defend themselves--the Library Forces!

Iku Kasahara has dreamed of joining the Library Defense Force ever since one of its soldiers stepped in to protect her favorite book from being confiscated in a bookstore when she was younger. But now that she's finally a recruit, she's finding her dream job to be a bit of a nightmare. Especially since her hard-hearted drill instructor seems to have it in for her!


My Thoughts


Review covers 38 chapters 

Hello everyone and welcome back to Katie's Corner! I am sorry for the mess, but somehow I lost the review, and I couldn't find either hard copy nor the e-copy of it. Therefore, I am cutting the review short, as I wrote it around a month ago, so I do not really remember everything that I put into it, but only the main points.

First of all, let me remind you, that this title is licenced in English therefore, I guess, the uploaders stopped uploading it after Chapter 37. So, sometime soon, I will get the volumes 8-14, and the last 15th volume is going to be published somewhere in April, therefore I will be putting a second review at that time. This story is very interesting in its essence, I mean, who doesn't love some dystopian novels? And here it just goes on the biggest scale, imagine that everything in the future is censored. Yup, yup, absolutely everything: books, movies, magazines, etc, and only the library takes it upon itself to preserve our culture. Yes, it's a full blown battle between Library and the Government. And if you are a fellow book lover you just can't not take it up to read!

Get to know the greatest characters ever, explore the life behind the Library Defense Forces. Yes, you are thrown into a world of action, and a bit of romance, and I am so hoping that there is going to be more romance very soon. We finally get two of our favourite characters together, though it's only upon you to unravel who our sweethearts are going to be!

Are you ready for this? there's also a 12 episode anime, but trust me the manga is better! There's more into it then in the anime. Enjoy it to its fullest and don't forget to share your thoughts below! stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don't miss your next favoruite book or manga! happy reading!

XOXO

Katie
