The background story makes no sense.
Why start a civil war by law?
It's not a serious show, turn off your brain and enjoy it.
Haven't you ever heard of "inter-service rivalry"?
I have, but even in the Third Reich it was kept in tight boundaries.
The only reason I can think of is, so long as the war remains ritualized the way it is, then librarians won't be firing RPGs at police cars and assassinating public officials. Also, casualties are very small.
Premise is almost as dumb as having a guy's right hand or his soda can turn into a mini-girl.
so it's basically the same as code geass?
Midori no Hibi is strange, but usually military shows would rather stay within a thousand miles of sanity.
The librarians are strictly relegated to the defensive by the Library Act. The only real pro-active stance they can take is placing books under the protection of the libraries if there is a raid in progress.
It's the result of a weak or decentralized government. One faction within the government decides they'll start burning books. People resist by force, and another faction within the government grants them the power to do so legally, knowing they would regardless.
Not very realistic, but similar things have happened before. One, for example, is the federal government using the military to enforce desegregation in the US, while some southern states attempted to use the national guard to prevent it. It was never carried to the extremes in the anime, but it easily could have.
what anime is this?
Super Battle Books
Toshokan Sensou/Library Wars
You could always look at the file name of OP's pic and google it.
Boku no Books Slide
Or look at the OP PIC ITSELF.
Are Ocha! subs good?
I didn't even notice that.
No. They're probably all that's going to be out for a while, though, so your choice.
I know. The law to allow librarians to form their own militia is designed to prevent the actions I mentioned.
IT'S ABOUT BATTLING WITH BOOKS! BEST FREAKING IDEA EVER!!! WHO SAID YOU NEEDED GUNS TO GET RID OF PEOPLE YOU HAVE BOOKS! BOOKS I TELL YOU BWHAHAHAHAHA!.... oh wait...never mind it's not about battling with books.... THANK GOD! I MISS YOU GUN!
Watchable. Far from great, though. Their grammar needs work (I'm hoping they're not native English speakers, I'd cut them a bit of slack if they were), but you can understand what's going on.
Menclave released 1 and 2, encoding 3.
/r/ Rule 34 on the girl in the OPS picture
This man speaks the truth. All should hear his words.
The more I think about the premise behind this show, it starts to make more and more sense.
This means either:
1: It's premise was logical to begin with.
2: The constant pressure of watching anime with nonsensical plots is destroying what's left of my sanity.
She jumped down a wall where a bunch of soldiers with automatic weapons were waiting for her to grab a duffel bag of books.
I love this show.
spring 2008: best show
We need some doujinshi's of Kasahara.
