Ascendance of a Bookworm
Aliases: Honzuki no Gekokujou: Shisho ni Naru Tame ni wa Shudan wo Erandeiraremasen Studio: Ajia-Do Adaptation: Light Novel Genres: Fantasy, Slice of Life Episodes: 14 Release Date: October 3, 2019 Streaming: Crunchyroll,
Plot: When she woke up, she was in a parallel world... Avid bookworm and college student Motosu Urano ends up dying in an unforeseen accident. This came right after the news that she would finally be able to work as a librarian like she had always dreamed of. When she regained consciousness, she was reborn as Myne, the daughter of a poor soldier. She was in the town of Ehrenfest, a town that existed in a parallel world and had a harsh class system where the magic-wielding nobles ruled supreme. But Myne doesn't really let that get to her. After all, as long as she had books, she didn't really need anything else. However, this world had a very low literacy rate and no real way of printing books, so books were scarce and belonged only to the nobles. They were completely out of reach for the daughter of some poor soldier. But that doesn't stop Myne from wanting to read books, so she makes a decision... "If there aren't any books, I'll just create some." Myne might not have energy or money, but she has an endless amount of knowledge from all the books she read in her previous life. Will Myne actually be able to make some books? Myne's adventure to create books starts now.
Crunchyroll began streaming an English-subtitled trailer for the second part of the television anime of Miya Kazuki's "biblia fantasy" novel Ascendance of a Bookworm (Honzuki no Gekokujō - Shisho ni Naru Tame niwa Shudan o Erandeiramasen) on Thursday. The trailer reveals and previews the anime's opening theme song "Tsumujikaze" (Commotion) by Sumire Morohoshi, and also reveals new cast members. Crunchyroll also revealed that it plans to release an English dub for the second part.
Dreams changed. Lutz was enamored back then that he and Main will open their own bookstore. Main changed things because of her Devouring. Once the Church found out she had it, things got dicey. Her parents and Bennio were against her joining the Church because the Church mostly had orphans working for them for free. Yeah, it was children of nobility or poor who were cast aside by their parents.
Main tapped into her power once the old man refused to negotiate with Main and her parents and decided to use force and threaten to kill her parents.
Things resolved with the blue haired man accepting Main's 3 points in her deal.

Just finished part 2. Whole series is better than anything modern Disney has done. Wonderful in character development, animation an story pace. 2nd part got a bit weird an then got grand by 10th episode.
Well above average an highly recommended. A Dr Stone for bookworms as it were. Really enjoyed it.

Old Man Dream: So.... dragging my heels for another 2.5 weeks before Ralph Breaks the Internet is available on Disney+? Yay!

Taka: Really? Disney is slow to add the stuff that already got released. Same goes for DC Universe. Then DC UNiverse got converted into a comic only app. Well, Disney has more success. I think the other streaming sites are trying to hold on for money too.

Old Man Dream: Ralph Breaks the Internet is on Netflix. One of the remaining Disney movies that have yet to hit Disney+ because of prior streaming agreements Disney had in place before launching their streaming site.
