Library War Film's Title, Cast Revealed

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Production I.G's upcoming Library War (Toshokan Sensō) film will be titled (Toshokan Sensō: Kakumei no Tsubasa (Library War: The Wings of Revolution). The film's main cast will be the same as the 2008 television series:

Marina Inoue as Iku Kasahara
Tomoaki Maeno as Atsushi Dōjō
Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Hikaru Tezuka
Miyuki Sawashiro as Asako Shibasaki
Akira Ishida as Mikihisa Komaki
Kanji Suzumori as Ryūsuke Genda

The film also launched an official Twitter account.

Director Takayuki Hamana (Appleseed XIII, The Beast Player Erin, The Prince of Tennis), scriptwriter 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.
