Sorcerous Stabber Orphen and the case of a beautiful library

Today, I’d like to talk about Sorcerous Stabber Orphen, another anime. In the show’s ninth episode (“Ghost from the Past”) there is, once again, a librarian-less library, although this one is clearly well-used. First, we see the wide expanse of this beautiful library:

Then, there is a conversation between two characters, Leticia “Tish” MacCredy and Forte, in the library. He confesses his feelings toward her, which makes her very uncomfortable, which is completely understandable.

She again rebuffs him, annoyed he still has an interest in her. Like any woman, she has every right to reject his advances. In any case, I liked how this scene is laid out, with the books in the background. It is done well, artistically:

Later, we see Tish and Orphen. Interesting that Tish has a huge library in her room or an office of some type. I thought that was the best part of the episode:

And that’s all I have for this post. Until tomorrow’s post!

Wow, that’s pretty neat! Though, it does look kind of like someone shoved a bookstore into King Cross’ station with the shape and architecture of the ceiling.
