posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The wraparound cover band on the 12th Library Wars: Love & War manga volume announced last week that there are over 2 million copies of the manga in print.
The story is set in a future version of Japan. A law threatens to clamp down on freedom of expression in 2019, and Ikujoins 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, especially with her hard-nosed instructor Atsushi.
Kiiro Yumi began serializing the shōjo manga adaptation of Hiro Arikawa's Toshokan Sensō science-fiction novels in Hakusensha's LaLa magazine in 2007. Viz Media licensed the series for release in North America in 2009 and shipped the 10th volume in North America last month.
