I just mentioned that I’m shipping Okada and Eikura and now they have given me more reasons to keep on hoping.
It was announced that V6‘s Okada Junichi will star in the sequel of “Toshokan Sensou” (Library Wars) which was last shown in theaters last year.
Titled as “Toshokan Sensou LAST MISSION“, the movie will also star the previous casts that includes Eikura Nana, Kuriyama Chiaki, Tanaka Kei, and Fukushi Sota. Okada is pleased to work again with the previous cast and staff, he says that he’s looking forward to enter the world of “Toshokan Sensou” and aims for a greater scale than the first one.
“Toshokan Sensou” is based from Hiro Arikawa‘s bestselling novel that sold 2.8 million copies. It tells the story of a self-defense organization (Library Defense Force) that protects books from overdone censorship of the special forces. The story is set in fictitious near future of Japan. It also draws the romantic comedy story between a demon instructor (Okada) and a newcomer female member (Eikura).
The sequel will be set after a year and a half after the “Odawara information history library battle” where “Media Improvement Law” regulates all forms of media. Further conflict ensues between strict censorship of Media Improvement Committee and Library Defense Force who opposes any form of censorship and a record-high battle will begin.
Filming scheduled on mid-December and “Toshokan Sensou LAST MISSION” will hit the theaters on Oct 2015.
