The live-streamed Niconico special for the Ascendance of a Bookworm television anime has recently announced on Sunday that production on a third season has been green-lit!
The anime’s first part actually premiered last October, and ended on December 25th with a total of 14 episodes. Crunchyroll then streamed the first part as it aired in Japan, and also began streaming an English dub on December 4th. Crunchyroll is soon planning on streaming the second half with English subtitles.
Shortly thereafter, the second part premiered in Japan on April 4th. It also physically shipped to Japan in four, three-episode DVD volumes from April 15th to June 17th, as well as in a 12-episode Blu-ray box on June 17. The two original video anime (OVA) installments debuted with a limited edition of the first novel of the series’ fifth part on March 10th.
Crunchyroll describes the anime’s story as:
Ascendance of a Bookworm follows the life of college student and aspiring librarian Motosu Urano who is transported to another world after an unfortunate accident. When she is reborn as Main,
the daughter of a poor soldier, she makes it her mission to make books more freely available to everyone in this new world.– Crunchyroll
Here’s the tweet confirming Season 3’s development:
J-Novel Club is planning on releasing both the light novels and Suzuka’s manga adaptation in English, so fans…look forward to it! Even you can become just as obsessed as our Main!
