Ascendance of a Bookworm Season 3 has released its main trailer ahead of its April 11 Japanese premiere. The trailer spotlights the season’s cast of characters and includes a preview of the opening song “Ano Hi no Kotoba” by Nao Touyama

Ascendance of a Bookworm is based on the TO Books-published light novel series written by Miya Kazuki and illustrated by You Shiina. The first two seasons aired in 2019 and 2020 respectively.

Crunchyroll describes the first season of the anime as:

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 Main, the daughter of a poor soldier. She was in the town of Ehrenfest, which had a harsh class system. But as long as she had books, she didn’t really need anything else. However, books were scarce and belonged only to the nobles. But that doesn’t stop her, so she makes a decision… “If there aren’t any books, I’ll just create some.”

The returning staff includes Mitsuru Hongou as director, Mariko Kunisawa as series composer and scriptwriter, Emiko Endou as chief animation director, Ryouka Kinoshita as art director, Miyoko Ichinose as color designer, Naoki Kitamura as photography director, MICHIRU as music composer, and Yoshiaki Yanagida and Toshihisa Kaiya as character designers. Ajia-do is once again the animation production company.

New staff members include Haruka Matsunae (Banana Fish) as a third character designer and Noriko Otake (HaikaraSanHere Comes Miss Modern: Part 2) as a new chief animation director. Meanwhile, all main cast members from the previous seasons including Yuka Iguchi as Main and Sei Oohama as Ferdinando are returning, with Kazuhiko Inoue joining the cast as Sylvester.

The light novels began in 2015 and have 28 main volumes as of December 2021. The story began as a web novel published on Shousetsuka ni Narou and has inspired a multi-part manga adaptation. J-Novel Club publishes the light novels in English.
