Ascendance of a Bookworm Receiving Anime from Wit Studio

Part 3: Adopted Daughter of an Archduke, the third part in the Ascendance of a Bookworm light novel series by Miya Kazuki, will be receiving an anime thanks to Wit Studio. The first two parts have already been adapted by the anime studio Ajiado.

Not a whole lot of information has been released yet, like a basic timeline or people involved.

The light novel series, which is known as Honzuki no Gekokujō – Shisho ni Naru Tame niwa Shudan o Erandeiramasen in Japanese, launched in 2013, and its thirty-third volume is scheduled to come out this week.

In addition to the previous anime adaptation, the series has received a manga. J-Novel Club publishes the original light novels as well as the manga in English, and gave this description for the plot:

She is now Myne, the sickly five-year-old daughter of a poor soldier. To make things worse, the world she’s been reborn in has a very low literacy rate and books mostly don’t exist. She’d have to pay an enormous amounts of money to buy one. Myne resolves herself: If there aren’t any books, she’ll just have to make them! Her goal is to become a librarian. This story begins with her quest to make books so she can live surrounded by them! Dive into this biblio-fantasy written for book lovers and bookworms!

Looking at the previous anime, the first season debuted in late 2019, with the second season coming out less than a year later in spring 2020. The third season came out a little later, launching in 2022. There are additionally two OVA installments for the franchise.
