Library Wars Live Action Trailer

In Japan, the year is 2019 and in order to crack down on free expression, a new law is passed, which allows for the government to create an armed force to find and destroy objectionable printed material. Meanwhile, to oppose this oppressive crackdown, the Library Defence Force is created. The Library Defence Force, including instructor Atsushi Dojo and Iku Kasahara, work to protect the libraries. A fierce battle then ensues between these two groups.

“But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve”

‘But I will wear my heart upon my sleeve’

“Othello” – William Shakespeare

Misery and hate are a girl’s best friend when nuancing

Thoughts with dearest Iago. Emotions easily overtake

The senses and created a trying motif to look

Past. However, times can call for a change that may

Upset the world floating evangelically around

Your one sided longings. It is treacherous to leak out

The secrets you thought were secured to your sleeve,

But wanton pride must always be kept intact when

It is done. Weep your tears of uncertainty

And prepare to undo the feelings that were once

A birthplace for joy. The time for a sorrowfully sweet goodbye

Must be now and you cannot deny it any further. Brush

A shaky hand down your arm and sweep away

The remnants of that dream turned upside down.

– Carol Fisher
