Library Wars (Toshokan Sensō) has a concept so strange yet fresh that I'm immediately intrigued. Adapted from a series of Japanese light novels (young adult novels) by Hiro Arikawa, Library Wars also spawned a manga and anime adaptation. The plot goes a little something like this:
Yes, think Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, but this time those books aren't going away without a damn fight! Who knows, if they did something like this in the United States, it might become the next Twilight or Hunger Games.
Library Wars is directed by Sato Shinsuke (The Princess Blade) and stars Okada Junichi, Eikura Nana, and Kuriyama Chiaki (Gogo from Kill Bill, Volume 1). The film comes out in Japan on April 27th. No international release plans have been announced. After the cut is one of the teaser trailers for the film.
