Oh, well, I was thinking I've just been seeing a lot of clips of Silent Library and other Silent type shows and I didn't know where they came from. The Silent Library games are from the show "Gaki no tsukaiya arahende!!" or usually shortened as "Gaki no Tsukai". They have a few of the special DVD's...
