【Iguchi Yuuka: Myne】
Yahoo! Season 3 of the anime! Season 3! Yeah! Bless you!
With all the support provided, season 3 has become real! Thank you so much! I am happy that I can play Myne again. In season 3, the important point of the story is the episode of Myne and her family in a long main story. The story begins to move forward greatly with appearance of multiple new characters! Also, please pay attention to the family love. I will cherish each episode, and play the character faithfully every time. Please look forward to the 3rd season!
【Hayami Shou: Ferdinand】
The enemies, intriguers, and villains will threaten Myne in season 3. As a guardian, Ferdinan keeps a closer look on Myne. I want to faithfully play Ferdinand with hidden passion and coolness.
Please wait for the 3rd season with expectations.
【Kazuki Miya: the original author】
TV anime “Ascendance of Bookworm” season 3 has been decided on spring 2022! I made you wait for the information release for 3rd season.
Part 1 “Daughter of a Soldier” was picked up in season 1 and the first half of part 2 “Apprentice Shrine Maiden” was shown in the season 2. The later half of the part 2 will become anime for season 3.
One important flow in season 3 is the letter printing technology starting around Myne. The voice will be given to the apprentice of blacksmith laboratory, who produces metal letters, and the members of ink producers. Please pay attention also to Benno, Lutz and Gil, who get involved in the change.
Another important event would be a prayer. The priest Ferdinand, Karstedt and Damuel, who got connected through Tronbe incident in season 2, and the unknown blue priest will participate. (laughter) I believe many people are waiting for appearance of him. Myne’s outfit for the prayer is cute and includes many important events during prayer, such as the prayer related to the villages, the description of summer mansion of Gibe, and attacks on it.
Lastly, the bond of Myne’s family. Do you remember Myne was drawing the picture book for the baby? She will born finally in season 3. There will be a new family member. Mother Effa will have a kind eye over them and Tuuli is always cute and the dad Gunter will always cool when trying to protect Myne from aristocrats.
Please look forward to the last scene of season 2, and you cannot watch it without falling into tears.
【Director Hongou Mitsuru】
I am in charge of the sequel to “Ascendance of Bookworm”. It is a wonderful thing because I was uncomfortable with the story after season 2, which was incomplete.
I have no regret if this completes. We are in the middle of production and will complete our mission with a great momentum.
Please look forward to the broadcast in next spring.
