The protagonist, Iku Kasahara, is the first female combatant in the Library Defence Force, and I love her. She’s earnest and enthusiastic about her work but struggles to see how to be good at it, and seeing her friends and love interest help her build up her skills and confidence over the course of the series gets me where I live. … I’m not saying that this series got my through my librarianship degree, but I am saying that I reread it a lot while…
