One of my favorite series of the current season is Ascendance of a Bookworm. Based on the light novel series written by Miya Kazuki and illustrated by Yō Shiina, perhaps you can argue that the main character is a bit too smug for her own good until you’re blue in the face but it won’t change the fact that I am an unapologetic fan of this show. This is why I’m so excited to share the news with all of you that this series will continue in the spring of 2020.
They announced the second season on the official website on December 6th. This was in addition to the earlier announcement (also made on December 6th) that revealed that the climatic thirteenth and fourteenth episodes of the first season would air back to back on December 25th.
The anime adaptation of Ascendance of a Bookworm was first announced back in March 2019. The animation is produced by studio Ajia-do Animation Works and features Mitsuru Hongo as director. The light novel series was formally released in collected volumes in 2015 and will release its 21st volume on December 10th, 2019.
Crunchyroll is simulcasting the series as it airs and describes the story as:
Avid bookworm and college student Motosu Urano ends up dying in an unforeseen accident. This came right after the news that she would finally be able to work as a librarian like she had always dreamed of. When she regained consciousness, she was reborn as Myne, the daughter of a poor soldier. She was in the town of Ehrenfest, which had a harsh class system. But as long as she had books, she didn’t really need anything else. However, books were scarce and belonged only to the nobles. But that doesn’t stop her, so she makes a decision… “If there aren’t any books, I’ll just create some.”
