    What you get with a female MC
    I find the lack of yelling, screaming, announcing attacks, forced confrontations with antagonist to be refreshing. The MC faces more pedestrian foes in day to day challenges which, through her own will and perseverance , she overcomes. Her challenges are relatable to the average viewer. I find myself rooting for the MC and her small triumphs as she progresses through this tale.
    I think many ...

  • so wholesome and cute!
    Such a wonderful anime so far, wholesome and entertaining, especially if you enjoy learning about stuff like in Dr. stone! I love all the characters so far, from the Dad to Lutz, no horrible loud and obnoxious "comedy relief" characters so far either, and the story so far is so charming and interesting

  • These Books Are Myne!
    A modern young Japanese woman dies in an earthquake and regains consciousness in the body of a child living in something like a Medieval European world. She absorbs the memories of that child, named Myne, and assumes her life. (We learn that Myne was a frail girl, so perhaps she passed on from illness? Because as creepy as that sounds, it sure beats the alternative, which would see Urano ...

  • Adorable slice of life isekai
    So far the first episode is pretty boring, but I wonder if this is an anime that starts slow and builds up, who knows, so far I really love the art style and animation, its not generic isekai trash animation that we see in other isekai, the animation is smooth and clean, this anime has a lot of promise for possible world building scenarios in future episodes, and its kinda odd, giving the ...

  • Very Promising Anime!!
    Crunchy Roll, what are you doing to me?!?! You cannot just give a teaser for one of the best animes I have ever watched like Ascendance of a Bookworm! I just hope it isn't a short season show. Please make more like this one and longer stories, thank you!!

    Ascendance Is a Slice of Life Isekai That Follows...
    ...Motosu Urano, a bookworm who transported into another world and took over the body of a fragile blue haired girl named Myne. Her desire to be able to read books again pave the way for encounters that form new and exciting relationships.

    This adaption has its genuine aesthetics and the animation quality is what you would expect from a temp seasonal show. It lacks action but makes ...

    you want a wholesome anime you can just watch? here it is!
    to put it short its nice. not much plot but enough so its not boring. although it is *cough* another isekia, its really not that bad. give it a 3 to 4 episode watch and find out as it applies to a general yet some what specific audience.

    Intolerable and Nope
    It starts out with an adult mind raping a child. Not really a great story if that's how you want to begin it. The manga was tolerable but with this part, I cannot suggest anyone taking in this story. The MC is constantly "sick" and rather than letting her family in on her story to help her, she goes to outside help and gets taken advantage of constantly. A very, very poorly designed and executed ...

    Disappointed by the animation
    I have thoroughly enjoyed the manga adaptation of this story & was super excited when i heard they would be releasing a anime version. fast forward to today when i tried to watch the first episode & i couldn't look past everyone's HORRIFYING DEAD CGI EYES. to quote Robert Shaw from Jaws: "lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eyes". i kept thinking to myself "i'll just get over it sooner or ...
