"In a world where people die and become books..."
Such is the tagline of the series, which is based on a series of light novels by Ishio Yamagata. In this fantasy world, dead people turn into books held at a particular library-- Bantorra. Librarians there wield great power, and an amnesiac named Koria Tonisu wakes up one day with a bomb embedded in his chest to try to kill the most powerful of the librarians: Hamyuttsu Meseta. Instead, Koria falls in love with her, and finds himself in the middle of a war over the library.
The show is being animated by the young studio David Production, founded by former Gonzo president Kouji Kajita and producer Taito Okiura in '07; their only full production to date was this spring's Ristorante Paradiso.
