  1. Something for the batch:
    5:49 “…got finally got…”

    Also, major props to the typesetter for those logos and shaded title.

    • Yeah, I saw this one reported elsewhere, it’s fixed now.

      I’m mad though coz I read that line like five different times and still glossed over it.

  2. Solved audio problem. One more (regarding your subs). The main character’s name is spelled Maine, not Myne.

    • We’re using the names J-Novel Club is using in their Light Novel translation, which were cleared with the author directly.

      Every one of them is right. Especially Myne. Crunchyroll also used Myne.

  3. Ah ok. The name “Myne” still reminds me of that one chick from Shield Hero.

  4. This anime awake my interest with ongoing Anime again after cold sleep last season. And you guys gonna do it fast! What a pure bliss. Thanks as always!

  5. Thanks for picking this up.

    The line at 16:06 could perhaps include the definite article… “Could it be that this world doesn’t use {the} written word”.

  6. The entire time I watched this I was triggered by the complete lack of regard for the life of the original Myne. The story just flicks her aside like a booger…

    • The light novels talk about it a fair bit more. You should check those out through J-Novel Club if you’re interested in getting a more in-depth look at the Bookworm series.
