Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: Every week, the new Library War television anime series is outfitting a character with a different pair of prescription glasses from a store chain in Japan, and the chain is inviting fans to buy the real pairs. The science-fiction comedy series premiered on April 10 and centers on a military unit that protects libraries and freedom of expression from government encroachment. Asako Shibasaki (Miyuki Sawashiro), the roommate of the heroine Iku Kasahara (Marina Inoue), is wearing a different, newly designed pair of prescription glasses in every episode. Shibasaki's eyeglasses can actually be bought at Zoff, a chain of Japanese eyeglass stores. Takyuki Hamana (The Prince of Tennis, Sisters of Wellber) is directing this Production I.G production.
