Recently added titles (May 2022)

Students warn Kaguya about Ishigami in the eighth episode of Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War. She later brushes them off and they leave after she asks if they question her judgment, which they apparently do not. Library labeling of the shelves can be seen in this shot.

Building upon the titles listed for July/August, September, OctoberNovember, and and December 2021, and January, February, March, and April of this year, this post notes recent titles with libraries or librarians in popular culture which I’ve come across in the past month. Each of these has been watched or read during the past month. Not as many animated series or anime with libraries this past month, but I did come across a good deal in comics, whether in graphic novels or webcomics, and hopefully there will be more that I find in the days, weeks, and months to come. That’s my hope at least.
