Comments: Iku Kasahara is joining the Library Defense Force, a group designed to save books from censorship under a special law so they can remain accessible by all. The federal government is on a continual mission to destroy all books not considered "appropriate" and the Library Act (and Library Defense Force upholding it) is the only legal recourse. It a fascinating scenario - definite parallels with Fahrenheit 451. It has the usual angsty is he like my hero that I can't remember the face of (crush-material) or is he the opposite?
