ascendance of a bookworm

The anticipated third season of the Ascendance of a Bookworm anime kicks off this April, and we now know who will be performing the ending theme. Regular anime theme song singer and voice actor Maaya Sakamoto is stepping up for the ED, which will close episodes out to the tune of “Kotoba ni Dekinai” (“It’s Hard to Explain”).

Here’s what Sakamoto had to say about the opportunity:

“This song is full of feelings of gratitude for irreplaceable people and places, and feelings that inspire you when you’re discouraged. In that sense, it’s a sad song but also one that allows you to positively move forward.”

The Ascendance of a Bookworm TV anime has been streaming on Crunchyroll as it airs, and Sentai Filmworks is getting ready to release the first two seasons on Blu-ray in just a few days. Here’s the official synopsis:

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!
