Ascendance of a Bookworm Season 2 Spoilers

In the past, as fans of Isekai, we’ve seen several different types of characters getting summoned into fantastical worlds. But among all of these, ‘Ascendance of a Bookworm’ is very different. Its main protagonist is a young girl who dreams of being a librarian someday. She works hard all her life just to be able to reach her dreams and when she does finally manage to become a librarian, a huge bookshelf falls on her and she dies. Even when she breathes her last few breaths, she only wishes for a second life to be able to read a few more books. And that’s when everything completely changes.

When she opens up her eyes, she finds herself in a completely different world where she embodies a young girl named Myne. After a little more exploration of the world around her, she learns that she’s now in some ancient parallel world where books barely exist. The ones that do exist are handwritten and are only written for the nobles. At first, realizing that she has a weak, frail body, Myne first thinks of giving up. Then she realizes that she didn’t come so far for no reason and decides to try her best to achieve her dreams in this new world. In the second season, Myne gets to live as a noble but it turns out to be far more disastrous than she had initially imagined.
