A new commercial and visual is revealed for the TV anime adaptation of Miya Kazuki’s (香月美夜) light novel series “Ascendance of a Bookwork” (本好きの下剋上～司書になるためには手段を選んでいられません～). The second part of the anime is confirmed to premiere in 4th April.
The series revolves around a certain book aficionado college girl who dies of an accident and is reborn as a sickly five-year-old girl named Maine in another world. Despite having a sickly body, her greatest distress is the lack of books due to the world’s low literacy rate. In the face of this distress, she resolves herself to make books and one day become a librarian.
