What is The Plot For Season 3?

Please note: This portion of the article may contain spoilers!

Now that Myne is being hunted by the elite, as a result of her magic, she has had to abandon the temple and her people. She has now taken on another name, Rosemyne.

Season 3 will show her continue trying to set up the first printing machine and create the books she loves dearly. This is as she navigates the harsh winter, all while trying to survive and stay hidden from the elites.

Both Seasons 1 and 2 provided similar content to the manga series. However, it was noted that it didn’t follow the chapters directly. Season 3 is expected to follow the books more directly due to fans being slightly disheartened that the emotions shown in the book were not conveyed in the anime. This could mean Season 3, much like previous seasons, will be Split-cour.
