Humor Break: The Fighting Librarian: The Book of Bantorra


[via Crunchyroll]

Anime about a world where librarians not only need organization skills, but need to be trained with fighting ability to handle the monsters that roam the stacks. The plot is actually more complicated than that, but I thought I might point out a reference to the librarian profession. Here is a quick description:

In a world where the dead are transformed into books…

When a person dies, the body is divested of the soul, and when the soul departs from its body, it is crystallized into a book. Written in that book are all the memories of that soul’s life. For anyone who touches that book, the dead person’s past can be relived….

It is in the Library of Bantorra, created by Bantorra, the God of the Past, that all excavated books are stored. It is run by an elite organization known as the Armed Librarians. Under the direction of Acting Chief Librarian Hamutz Meseta, all Armed Librarians possess an extraordinary combination of encyclopedic knowledge and fighting skill. For this reason, it is said, the Armed Librarians are the most difficult profession to enter in the world.

Humor Break: MicroSD @xkcd


I know this is about a very small microchip that can store a lot of data, but the I love how library shelves are used to describe the vast amount of data that fits on something smaller than a dime.
