posted on 2011-12-29 23:50 EST
The official website for the Library War (Toshokan Sensō) film launched this week and announced the staff and release window for the anime. Director Takayuki Hamana (Appleseed XIII, The Beast Player Erin, The Prince of Tennis), scripwriter Kenji Konuta, original character designer Sukumo Adabana, and the animation studio Production I.G are all returning from the 2008 television series. The film will open in Japan early next summer.
Like the television series and two manga series before it, the film adapts Hiro Arikawa's Library War (Toshokan Sensō) light novels about a future version of Japan. A law threatens to clamp down on freedom of expression in 2019, and Iku Kasahara joins the Library Defense Force, a military unit dedicated to protecting books from being confiscated. However, she finds that the job of her childhood dreams is harder than she bargained for.
