Average Rating

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!

(very cute and wholesome tho)

QuizzerJ

Finally, we got what the world needed: a SoL Isekai

bigbane

She cute.

FallingGrace

Mystery, Multiverse, Literacy, Slice of Life, and pure enjoyment. This is a series all should enjoy, I certainly do!

Zelgadiss

Awakening in a medieval setting, rather than easily capitalizing on her modern knowledge. MC makes opts to do thing the hard way.

TheElectricRaichu

The art’s pretty! It’s a shame the MC is selfish, arrogant & obsessive. It’s unbearable to watch & inconsistent. Could’ve been done better.

Hirato

Cute and enjoyable adaptation, that skips way too much and takes too many liberties doing so; I’d recommend the manga over watching this.
