Ascendance of a Bookworm season 2 is set to premiere in Japan on April 4, starting on ABC TV, with Tokyo MX and WOWOW to follow on April 8 and BS Fuji right behind them on April 9.

The season 2 Blu-ray box has already been scheduled for June 17, as well. It will pack in episodes 15-26 along with select audio commentaries and a soundtrack CD and drama CD.

Here’s the new season 2 visual and a commercial that shows the first footage:

Crunchyroll streamed the first season as it aired. Here’s the synopsis:

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.”
