In the near future, the government decided it wanted to try the whole dystopian trend and banned a lot of books. However, lacking a single plucky young person to break the new laws, the libraries themselves decided to play the part and formed an army to guard all books everywhere. And then the issue is treated a fluff fodder for shoujo relationship issues.

Technically this is a review of volume 1-3, but they all get lumped together because it doesn't change that much, book-to-book.

This is so generically shoujo it's barely worth reviewing. The whole "library wars" thing is actually an excuse to have the heroine in a traditionally masculine environment where she gets to show how tough she is but without real-world set rules, and the library aspect ensures that there is plenty of slow time and office settings to romantic intent to bloom.

Iku is your normal heroine, strong and determined, but a ditz and a klutz, with two possible romantic interests while she herself remains pretty oblivious.
