Production I.G to Animate Library War Sci-Fi Novel

posted on by Egan Loo
Underground militia rises to protect books from censorship

Advertising from the Japanese publisher MediaWorks has announced that Production I.G will animate Toshokan Sensō (Library War), the debut novel from science-fiction writer Hiro Arikawa, for television in 2008. The satirical comedy is set in 2019 when an organization has cracked down on "harmful" publications and freedom of expression, so an underground militia rises to protect books and libraries. Arikawa is already publishing his third sequel this month, and the LaLa shōjo magazine and the Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh shōnen magazine are both serializing manga adaptations by Kiiro Yumi and Yayoi Furudori, respectively.
