Ascendance Of A Bookworm Season 3: Plot Details & New Visual
According to the official synopsis from the Crunchyroll website, the anime follows the story of a nerd high school student Motosu Urano who aspires to live the life of a librarian one day. But much like a classic Isekai trope, a series of unfortunate incidents lead to Urano getting transported into a magical world. In this world, she is reincarnated in a poor family. Thus, the story follows her daily struggles to make a living.
Moreover, Motosu makes it her lives aim to provide books to the poorest in any way she can. Ascendance Of A Bookworm Season 3 is likely to follow the same arc of Urano trying to open a library that is easily available to the children of the poor town.
