Library War (図書館戦争, Toshokan Sensō in Japanese) is a light novel/12-episode anime/ongoing manga series set in 2019, during an alternate timeline where the Japanese government has issued the Media Betterment Act to prevent the spread of supposedly dangerous information by allowing censorship. In response, local governments have set up the Library Defense Force to fight against the Media Betterment Committee, who frequently raid libraries. The story itself centers around Iku Kasahara, a recruit in the Force, who joined after being inspired by a mysterious Defense Force member who protected her and a book she was trying to buy that was being targeted for censorship. However, she quickly learns how demanding the Defense Force can be, mainly from her demanding instructor, Atsushi Dojo. Despite making several huge mistakes at first, Kasahara is promoted to her base's Library Task Force, which is essentially the most elite branch of the Defense Force. As the series goes on, she begins to improve in her duties, and she even finds out more about the mysterious "princely" figure that inspired her all those years ago...
