Ascendance of a Bookworm Season 3 Debuts in April

Ascendance of a Bookworm Season 3 Debuts in AprilLooking forward to some new Bookworm action? It’s comin’, folks. The third season of Ascendance of a Bookworm is set to debut in April 2022.

The main cast and crew is back from previous seasons, with some new crew additions, including third character designer Haruka Matsunae, who previously did key animation on the show.

Season 3 was announced way back in July of 2020, so it’s good to finally get a solid release window.

Here’s how Sentai describes the first season:

When a sickly young girl suddenly becomes obsessed with inventing new things, her family and friends are all puzzled. “What has gotten into Myne?” they wondered, never dreaming that the answer is not a “What” but a “Who”: Urano Motosu, a book-loving apprentice librarian who died in an earthquake in Tokyo who somehow found herself in Myne’s body! And since Myne’s world is still in a medieval stage, where books can only be owned by the elite, the new Myne intends to do everything she can to bring her beloved books to the masses in the time she has left. Unfortunately, that may not be very long, as Myne’s body is still failing, and she may only have a short time left to achieve her lofty goals!
