ISIS Love the movie is there a second one coming

momo Tozuka first name is Hikaru, not Satoshi! Satoshi is his big brother!! BTW great movie ^_^

Yashel Dojo actor looks nothing like the manga or anime :P >:(

EvelynW It was such a joy getting to watch this movie first-hand in the cinemas for the Japanese Film Festival here in Melbourne, Australia! :) I am hoping to join as a volunteer for next year's film festival. Thus, am hoping I will be staying in Melbourne for that. Don't know if it will actually happen. Unfortunately, my friend and I were close to missing the last train so missed out on meeting the director. :"( Makes me tear up. The movie was so worthwhile! :D And neatly done. I think the actors did such a good job. And man, THAT DROP KICK. WOAH. Haha. Super! I loved the colonel too. I sincerely believe this movie lives up to its manga and anime counterparts. It could not have been better re-interpreted. :)

Meli Does anyone know if this movie is subbed and where I can watch this?

Icchan I read Library Wars, the manga and love it s much!! I watched Kakusho and thought, Nana Eikura would be perfect as Iku if the movie were to be made... and then I stumble upon this here, Oh My Gosh!!!! It came true!!

Kucchi Waaaa!!! Amazingg, I just saw this one.. Can't wait already!! APRIL HURRY UP AND COME!~
