In the near future, the federal government creates a committee to rid society of books it deems unsuitable. The libraries vow to protect their collections, and with the help of local governments, form a military group to defend themselves--the Library Forces!
Iku finishes her solo mission of getting the author to a safe place. She’s smart, and she’s careful, and she does her best. And when she finally completes it and gets to go back home, she’s too afraid to visit Dojo in the hospital.
She finally builds up the courage after some insisting, and ugh this scene! He has to push her to actually say what she promised she would say, and it’s so sweet. It’s adorable and heartwarming and just everything I wanted it to be. It was perfect.
The ending jumps forward, giving us a glimpse of what happens to them in the future, and it’s sweet. It’s nice to see that everyone is doing okay. Komaki and Marie I like seeing more of, and I’m not surprised by Tezuka and Shibazaki’s status.
There is mention of extra side volumes, and I seriously want those to be licensed extremely badly. I just want more of these characters, and would love to see more released over here. Otherwise, it was a pretty fantastic series and I loved it.
