Episode Summary

EDIT
Kino and Hermes make their way to the Land of Books, a country whose library gathers together all the books in the world, but locks away those considered ‘harmful', leaving only the most wholesome and inoffensive out on display. Almost by chance, however, Kino finds herself thrust into the underground of this world, where a secret resistance publishes its own, darker material. But as the plot thickens, the lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur, until it becomes almost impossible to distinguish what is really happening, and what only exists on the pages of a book, or in the depths of an author's mind…moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Man: Some books out there entice with radical descriptions, or plant dangerous thoughts in people's minds. They become affected by these ideas and can turn into raging criminals.
        Kino: Yes, but that doesn't necessarily mean the books are bad- it's ultimately the reader who is responsible for his own actions.

      • Author: What if reality is that this is the world of the book- and you and your motorrad friend are merely characters in the story?

      • "All they do is expound their store of knowledge. They excite themselves with their ranting; their disapproval swells them with a feeling of importance and sick victory, they thrive on spoiling the pleasure and trashing the creativity of others."
        The Minister shares her opinion of critics.

      • Librarian: I don't really know how to explain it, but The Author's stories have something magical about them. They draw you in and you become part of the story, blurring the differences between illusion and reality.

      • Chief Librarian: Critics don't ever make wrong decisions- that's why we trust them to judge the books.

      • Author: The difference between reality and illusion is that illusion is what humans created, motorrad. Your life begins when you make a distinction between yourself and others. From that moment, the world becomes the stage for the story in which you are the main character, yet all people exist in the illusion that they are the main character.

      • Hermes: You do know he's crazy, right?
        Kino: All I know is normal people would never become authors.
