Synopsis: Kasahara Iku (Eikura Nana) belongs to the Library Task Force in the Kanto Library Base. She joined the task force after a member recovered an important book for her that was nearly confiscated by censors. Assigned to Team Dojo, she puts up with both the abuse and harsh training of the monster of an instructor, Dojo Atsushi (Okada Junichi), as she searches for the “prince” whose face she does not even remember. And yet, she starts to develop feelings for Dojo for some reason and feels confused. About half a year has passed since the kidnapping of the commander of Nishina Base and the especially fierce battle of Odawara. Peace is returning to Musashino’s main library. However, Iku feels unsettled every day as she wonders whether Dojo is the “prince” she adores. One day, Iku meets a hearing-impaired high school student Nakazawa Marie (Tsuchiya Tao) at the library. Marie is a childhood friend of Komaki Mikihisa (Tanaka Kei), Iku’s senior in Dojo’s team, and is reading a recommended book that Komaki introduced to her. Iku senses Marie’s secret crush on Komaki. On the other hand, Shibasaki Asako (Kuriyama Chiaki), who does the library’s over-the-counter services, has been meeting a male curator called Asahina Shuji (Nakamura Aoi) frequently. Tezuka Hikaru (Fukushi Sota) is interested in Asako and has mixed feelings about this. At that moment, Komaki is suddenly detained by the Media Improvement Team, which is the censorship enforcement unit, because the book he recommended to Marie is not considered suitable for a disabled person. Dojo, Iku and the rest of the Library Task Force feel angry that Komaki was taken away with this absurd reason. To make matters worse, Iku’s parents who had opposed her joining the task force show up, and she gets into a big crisis of her own when it is discovered that she had kept quiet about her combat line of work. What decision will Dojo and the members of the task force make as chaos descends on the team one after another?
