Synopsis

Urano Motosu loves books and has an endless desire to read literature, no matter the subject. She almost fulfills her dream job of becoming a librarian before her life is ended in an accident. As she draws her last breath, she wishes to be able to read more books in her next life.

As if fate was listening to her prayer, she wakes up reincarnated as Maine—a frail five-year-old girl living in a medieval era. What immediately comes to her mind is her passion. She tries to find something to read, only to become frustrated by the lack of books at her disposal.

Without the printing press, books have to be written and copied by hand, making them very expensive; as such, only a few nobles can afford them—but this won't stop Maine. She will prove that her will to read is unbreakable, and if there are no books around, she will make them herself!

So far it has been a slow but somewhat interesting show. Main is just an adult trapped in a childs body. She has a goal and that is to start writing books. She was a literature geek back in her old life. Main loves books but since teleporting she lost all her books. Only roalty own books and she lives in a poor family. That does not stop her, she continues to search a way to create paper or anything to write on. She picks up calculating and writing super easily. Mains body is fragile and weaker than avarage. That makes her life a hard. read more

This isn't your average isekai show. Actually I couldn't understand why is this show an isekai? It could be "A random bookworm reincarnated into medieval Europe" and that wouldn't change anything except the hair colors (of course this opinion is valid for only the first 4 episodes, it can be chance in the next episodes).

It has a slow pacing story but still fun to watch. I really liked to watch the stages of Maine's passing. It's not has a special side but it was relaxing to watch.

If you're looking for a show to take away your tiredness at work or school you must definitely watch read more

Not much to see or say.


Instead of going to school to get a degree in Librarian science, just watch this.

Bookworm is not a bad anime. But it's also not a good anime. Reason being? Nothing really happens plot wise. Honestly, I'm 4 episodes in and I am still not really sure what the overall plot is meant to be? A girl gets isekai'd to a world with no books and for the first 4 episodes at least, it seems her goal is to create books and mass produce them for the world to enjoy. Ok, fair enough, pretty original concept(the book thing, not isekai), read more

Honzuki no Gekokujou: Shisho ni Naru Tame ni wa Shudan wo Erandeiraremasen (2019)

Episode 1 I nearly dropped it from not liking Maine because she came across so entitled but I have stuck it out and I am glad.

Although the season thus far is a bit of a slow burner it is developing forwards nicely. I originally thought not a lot had happened in 4/12 episodes but now I see it contains 14 in total instead of the general 12 I can understand the lack of rushing.

I do suspect with this style it won't be for a while until we get any major developments but read more
