“The First Mission” is a 9-minute side story (and, it fact, a trailer) of a newly released Japanese movie Library Wars: The Last Mission.
The clip follows a library assistant who falls in love with a co-worker, but she doesn’t notice him, as she’s fascinated by a novelist who often visits their library working on his next book.
The story is set in 2020 Japan, when a new law allows for the government to create an armed force to find and destroy the objectionable printed material. Many books are being confiscated – the one from the novelist is among them.
The main hero joins The Library Defense movement, which advocates freedom of expression, and quietly puts the saved copy of a book on the library shelf.
The movie was directed by Shinsuke Sato, and co-written with Hiro Arikawa, the novelist who created The Library War light novel trilogy.
