The government has passed the Media Betterment Act, establishing a military police force to stop the spread of "negative influences harmful to society;" and in response, libraries have organized their own military units to protect freedom of expression. After being saved by a Library Defense Force agent in a bookstore, Kasahara is inspired to enlist in the Library Defense Force. Although she proves quite athletic and capable, she must endure the harsh but meaningful training of her instructor and superior officer, Doujou. As she learns how to be a good soldier, she participates in LDF operations, helping protect literary freedom for everyone.
Both Ghost Hunt and Library War feature a talented but inexperienced female protagonist in a somewhat comical romantic relationship with an emotionally inaccessible superior. When I saw Ghost Hunt, I immediately thought 'this relationship is just like the one in Library Wars'.
Also, in both series the comedic relationship and goofy co-workers share equal time with a serious and frequently suspenseful situation. Ghost Hunt is horror and has lulls and spikes in intensity, while Library Wars is more military/political and the drama intensity is more consistent.
STN is a secret organization charged with capturing witches of all ages who misuse their inate ability of the Craft. Its newest recruit is a young girl named Robin, who wields the same power that she is helping to control. While skillful at their ability to detain quickly, the number of witches keeps seeming to increase, and the misuse of power grows stronger, casting a shadow of doubt as to what is really going on. For STN, there is much work ahead, and for Robin, her troubles are just beginning...
if you liked one of these you would surely love the other, although in both series the object of it is hunting, although they hunt different things these animes have a lot in common, horror, supernatural and the tiniest little hint of romance (and i mean tiny) although witch hunter robin does have slightly more action, where ghost hunter just pretty much goes for the shock, horror, intense value.
Watanuki, who is able to see the spirit world, continues to work for Yuuko at her special shop, in which anything a person desires can be theirs – for a price. Under her subtle influence, Watanuki is becoming more able to accept the burden of attracting the attention of various spirits and other worldly being; but now, he must truly understand just how NOT simple the world really is. Seeing the truth of his muddled friendships with Doumeki and Himawari will merely be the beginning; finding his own place in the world will be the goal.
Do you like ghost and spirits, or just love a good horror story then you will love these two shows. They will both give you a enjoyable ride into the occult world of ghosts, spirits, drama and horror, but still humor you with loveable characters and lines. While the two showes aren't too similar, they both go about solving a problem that has been caused by spirits, both good and bad...mostly bad though. Anyway, if you like one, there is no reason why you wont love the other.
