    This is so cute! It's so weird she kept her memories. Though it seems like not everything was kept. It will be so interesting when they reveal the origin of the transfer - if it's more than just what was intimated at the beggining.

    Its back!!!

    The second season shows main learning her new role in the church. It's really cute. It's also amazing how subtle their growth is (height). Lutz is taller then main now and she is a little taller too.

    Only downsides of the series is how easy it is for main to call on her former life. And her family is absent for big chunks. But it's not a big fault just a minor complaint after thinking about it for a moment.

    It's still adorable though and a great olde tyme slice of life show.

    I liked the dedication that it took in the first season to accomplish her goals, from learning a new alphabet to finally being able to make paper. Almost every episode also has some looming disaster waiting to happen if Main makes a wrong decision or gets out of control. Still, that showdown in the church when she almost lost her father shows that Main is not to be trifled with.

    I love the rainbow eyes of rage! :d

    What is surprising about this series is its mix of light hearted and seriousness. Like you said there is a reward for the trauma that does happen. And even when lutz confronts main at the end of the first season was pretty wrenching too.

    It's too cute when she does the YAHOO cheer in the psuedo chibi mode. And her comments in the end credits with the priest are always enjoyable.

    Director Mitsuru Hongo has reported that all 26 episodes of the anime have been submitted for release.

    Hongo acknowledged that the broadcast of the Ascendance of a Bookworm series was already pushed forward from its originally planned schedule "due to various issues." He concluded that even during these difficult times, he hopes that the anime can provide some fun.

    To quote MAIN:

    YAHOO!!!!!


    That's great news! I'm definitely in love this one.

    I wonder how these get batched together so they can get released while other studios are delayed?
