Our tale starts with a very inauspicious announcement to the students at the opening ceremony of an agricultural university.
Kei and Tadayasu have just started at rural Tokyo's Agricultural College, and within minutes, they meet one of their first professors in a rather unique and unpleasant way. This saves them time, however, since Tadayasu's grandfather wanted him to meet with the professor anyway.
It seems that Tadayasu has a rather bizarre ability, he can see and communicate with microbial life, as anthropomorphized creatures. And grandfather leaked this secret to professor Itsuki Keizo. So, now that he is in the classroom, is Tadayasu the experimenter or the experiment? [gdh]

Toshokan Sensou - Episode 1 () ##m
Due to the institution of two laws that were designed to protect citizens and the flow of accurate and safe information, a rather implausible situation arose... The organization responsible for safe and accurate information (national level) turned fascist, and the organization to protect information and books (local level) created a self-defense force. These two groups escalated their minor civil conflicts into a near war-like issue.
Enter Kasahara Iku, who, due to personal reasons from her past, has joined the Library Force to become a member of the Defense Force. In this first episode we see her training in boot-camp-like conditions. She excels in her training, but her one complaint is with a superior, Dojo Atsushi, who rides her hard and without mercy. She hates him quite passionately for the way she is treated. Change is inevitable as small but obvious things are pointed out to her. [gdh]
