Brief Description:
In the near future in Japan, the Media Enhancement Law has been forced upon the population censoring all books and media. To counter this, the Library Defense Force was created. To protect themselves against the Media Enhancement Law Commission, all major libraries are fully equipped with a military Task Force, who take it upon themselves to protect the books and freedom of media of the people. This anime follows Iku and her fellow soldiers as they protect various special books and artifacts from the oppression of the Media Enhancement Law Commission. A love story, war story, and comedy all rolled into one.

Note: This review includes the special DVD/BD only episode.

Violence / Gore: It's a war, so lots of gun use and people get shot, but injuries tend to be minor/non-lethal because of the combatants' body armour and the strict rules governing the conflict. Some blood is shown though. Someone gets caught in a fire. In the special episode Komaki is arrested by the MBC who try and force a confession out of him. He's tied to a chair in a freezing warehouse, not allowed to sleep and has water thrown in his face. It's pretty mild but is basically torture without the physically violence.

Nudity / Sexual Content: Some female characters are seen in the bath, a guy walks around in a towel but no details are seen. In the special episode a man is sexually harassing ladies in the library and the team set out to catch him.

Negative Themes: A little swearing and alcohol consumption, if I recall correctly.
