Do you ever daydream about what you want to be when you grow up? In Ajia-do Animation Works‘ anime “Ascendence of a Bookworm,” Urano Motosu, a college student, is confronted with this topic when her life of always reading books comes to an end after being crushed by the items she cherishes. Urano only wishes she could keep reading while pondering what she would do next if she had the choice. Unfortunately, she awakens in the body of a sickly little girl named Myne in a world where books are uncommon and those that do exist are only accessible to aristocrats.
Myne decides that the best way to make the most of her new existence is to write the books herself, so she sets off on a mission to learn the world's language and find suitable material for her stories. Meanwhile, Myne discovers she has “Devouring,” which means she has a lot of “mana,” or magic, but no outlet or method to manage it, and it's threatening to consume and kill her.
Myne's desire to write and read books, as well as her mana issues, lead her to take up an apprenticeship as a priestess, which also gives her access to a massive library. If you enjoy fantasy anime like “Little Witch Academia” or stories that combine the commonplace and the exceptional, like “Restaurant to Another World,” “Ascendence of a Bookworm” is a great next watch. The anime's first season was released in late 2019, and the second will be released in spring 2020. Fans are now anxiously anticipating the third installment's conclusion of Myne's story. Season 3 of “Ascendence of a Bookworm” has everything we know so far.
When Will Season 3 of Ascendance of a Bookworm Be Released?
Anime doesn't normally reveal the exact release date until a few weeks before the show airs. We now know that new episodes of “Ascendence of a Bookworm” will air in spring 2022, but we don't have any further information (Anime News Network). Crunchyroll has aired the first two seasons for international audiences, and Season 3 will most likely be the same. The first season debuted on Crunchyroll at the same time as it was released in Japan.
For anime fans who wish to see a series with an English dub, “Ascendance of a Bookworm” does have an English dub, but it usually comes out months after the original version, so expect to wait a while to view this version of Season 3. As a result of the outbreak, “Ascendance of a Bookworm,” like many other products, not only anime, is likely to have had production delays, which is why Season 3 is taking so long to come out in comparison to Seasons 1 and 2.
What Characters Will Appear in the Anime's Third Season?
In the next Season 3 episodes, fans can expect to see all of the same characters. Along with Yuka Iguchi's Myne, there's Ferdinand (Show Hayami), the High Priest of Ehrenfest, who has learned of Myne's previous existence and sees her as vital to the realm. Myne's family is extremely close, consisting of her father Gunther (Tsuyoshi Koyama), mother Effa (Fumiko Orikasa), and sister Tuuli (Megumi Nakajima).
Throughout Myne's priestess training, she keeps close ties with her closest friend Lutz (Mutsumi Tamura), who learns of her true identity at the end of Season 1 but decides to stay friends with her. Benno (Takehito Koyasu), a merchant who aids them in the creation and selling of book paper, works alongside Myne and Lutz. Myne is stuck at the temple with the priests because she has a lot of them, so Benno helps her make her inventions.
In Season 3 of Ascendance of a Bookworm, What Will Happen?
Season 2 of “Ascendence of a Bookworm” concentrates on Myne's mana, the Devouring, and her life at the temple, whereas Season 1 concentrated on her determined mission to create and read her books. While working at the temple, Myne comes across an orphanage and promises to help in any way she can, including writing books and designing accessories.
After the temple dismisses the priestess who manages the orphanage, starving the children, Myne becomes the new orphanage director by merging the establishment into her paper and book-making business.

Myne first uses her mana in public at the end of Season 2, performing a healing ceremony in front of a group of knights to demonstrate her power. With Ferdinand engaging Myne more and more in the temple's political and social aspects in Season 3, Myne's influence in the kingdom and among the nobles is expected to grow. Despite Myne's best efforts, this is likely to consume more of her life, cutting her apart from her family and friends. What else is Myne going to improve in Ehrenfest's realm?
The third season of Ascendance of Bookworm will launch in the spring of 2022. Most probably in season 3, Myne will involve more in the political and social aspects of the temple where her influence grows. As she does so she would be away from her family and friends. Fans will be eager to see how this journey of Myne continues while she is in the kingdom trying to handle many things. Coming to the characters you can expect to see the same characters from season 1 and season 2. The pandemic has slowed down the production process hence the season 3 delays and those who want to watch the English dub need to wait longer as it takes months to release the dub after the original show airs.
