'Ascendance Of A Bookworm' (also known as Honzuki no Gekokujou: Shisho ni Naru Tame ni wa Shudan who Erandeiraremasen) is an anime adaptation of a light novel series written by Miya Kazuki and illustrated by Yū Shiina.
It follows the story of Motosu Urano, a book-loving post-secondary student, and soon-to-be librarian.
Her adventures began after she gets reincarnated into a five-year-old girl named Myne, following her untimely death beneath a pile of books during an earthquake.
Myne now navigates in a world where books are rare and only available to elites. Equipped with her memories from the past, she begins to write and print her books so she can read them again.
After 2 successful seasons and an OVA release, is season 3 coming? Let's find out.
Renewal Status: Renewed
The makers of the anime series spared fans from the anxiety of waiting as they confirmed 'Ascendance Of A Bookworm' for season 3, right after season 2 finished.
The third season is currently in development, and with the recent global situation, it won't be surprising if they encounter some delays.
We still don't have the official release date for 'Ascendance Of A Bookworm' Season 3.
The anime series premiered on October 3 and ran until December 26, 2019, while the second part aired from April 5 to June 21, 2020.
Based on the time gap from the previous seasons, there's a good chance that we'll see season 3 in the last quarter of 2021 or early 2022. However, some reports are claiming that there might be another factor that could potentially delay season 3, aside from the pandemic.
There are rumors that a different production studio will handle the third season of 'Ascendance Of A Bookworm.' Ajia-do Animation Works produced the first 2 seasons of the anime, and a change in the studio will impact the anime series in some ways. Nevertheless, these are all unconfirmed rumors for now.
The upcoming season will likely focus on Myne's new life as she takes another name to protect the people she loves.
With the elite hunting Myne for her magic, she is forced to abandon the temple and leave her people behind. Myne starts a new life as a Lord’s stepdaughter, changing her name to Rosemyne so that the important people in her memoir will not be in danger.
Myne's current goal is to launch the source of the very first printing business in this world. It would be interesting to see her achieve such bold ambition in a world where books are considered as high-commodities and only accessible to the aristocracies.
We still don't have the official trailer for 'Ascendance Of A Bookworm' Season 3. We are likely to wait for months (we are praying hard it will not take years) before we could lay our eyes on season 3's trailer.
