Ascendance of a Bookworm

Ascendance of a Bookworm

Avid bookworm and college student Motosu Urano ends up dying in an unforeseen accident. This came right after the news that she would finally be able to work as a librarian like she had always dreamed of. When she regained consciousness, she was reborn as Myne, the daughter of a poor soldier. She was in the town of Ehrenfest, which had a harsh class system. But as long as she had books, she didn't really need anything else. However, books were scarce and belonged only to the nobles. But that doesn't stop her, so she makes a decision... "If there aren't any books, I'll just create some."

AnnaSartin AnnaSartin says...

Senku wants to rebuild humanity's lost technology. Myne just wants to make books. But the way both these young people are forced to go about it in the low-tech worlds they live in is quite similar. Fulfilling their dreams is a slow, exhausting, time-consuming process that doesn't guarantee success in spite of their hard work and the unique knowledge they possess from the lives they lived before being thrust into their new environment. Nothing comes easy to either of them, but their determination and willingness to keep going regardless of the obstacles trying to hold them back make both these anime intriguing and fun to watch.

WinTheWarOnPants WinTheWarOnPants says...

"Ascendance of a Bookworm" and "Dr. stone" are both about someone with knowledge that is far more advanced than their enviroment. Though in my opionion "... Bookworm" does it FAR better. If you liked Dr. Stone for it's "Future man" plot then you might like "AoB". If you didn't like Dr. Stone becuase of it's extreemly lose science and just plain stupidity(like nearly 4000 years of counting seconds...) then you might like "Ascendance of a Bookworm".

Len453 Len453 says...

Both share the same idea of a person having more or less cientific knowledge from the past. One being past life alternate universe the other being the technological past of a world that went back to the stone age 

Maddiemouse Maddiemouse says...

Both series feature characters that are wildly obsessed with something, either science of books. They use this obsessive knowledge in an attempt to better the world around them.

ThatGuyAgain665 ThatGuyAgain665 says...

Both anime have same type of "modern knowledge" with both MCs brought to a world where technology doesn't exists and they are tasked with bringing prosperity to their new worlds through the ways of modern tech.

Basically, they bring modern inventions to a place where they don't exist and seem alien.

DarwinsGame DarwinsGame says...

Both anime feature an intelligent, ambitous protagonist who has been transported into a world (or era) that extremely unadvanced as far as technology goes. Both are fun, well paced, and have lovable chatacters. 

AkazaKun AkazaKun says...

To sum it up both main characters have similar situations on their hands, they both have alot known about modern day and how to make things. They bring all sorts of modern day items to more under developed places.

Max4444 Max4444 says...

In both anime the main character finds themselves in a new kind of world, and they use the knowledge they have of this world to do things in that new world.

wowimsatan wowimsatan says...

They have a lot of similarities, but the main one is how they b0th explain modern contraptions in chibi forms. These anime are very similar in some regards, but Ascendance of a Bookworm is more fantasy 

JordanJas JordanJas says...

While visually these shows may seem like they are for different audiances, they both focus on characters trying to make a life in an unknown world. They are constantly trying to create what they miss from their original world, making friends and traveling along the way. Both feature bright colours and are fun to watch.

Skyhighflying15 Skyhighflying15 says...

The main characters are both nerds and super good at thier craft. One might be more shounen than the other, however the both have very much the same vibes in different settings.

AnnaSartin AnnaSartin says...

Both of these amusing shounen series feature someone with modern-day knowledge thrust into a new world where they have to start over. One ends up in a magical world with technology reminiscent of the middle ages, while the other winds up in the distant future where humanity has reverted back to the stone age.

Qplayer Qplayer says...

Both protagonists are trying to rebuild civilization from scratch, one with ridiculous powers that the world has never seen before, and the other as a slime.

kawaiibunbun kawaiibunbun says...

They both involve having to get used to a new way of living. Starting a new society. Working together and building a society. 

Sabu204 Sabu204 says...

It has the same thrill in it where you get to watch society grow around these people and see how they can change things for the better and how they adapt to different problems and learn to fix them while meeting new people and forming connections along the way.

FalconX578 FalconX578 says...

Similar to Dr. Stone, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime is a show that focuses on a person who once lived in the 21st century being tossed into a completely new world, and unlike Dr. Stone, it is actually a completely new world. In this new world, overflowing with magic and monsters, the protagonist, Satoru Mikami, attempts to take a small village of lowly goblins and transform it into a well-respected nation with modern-day knowledge added on to the many skills Mikami has acquired in this new fantasy world.

Like in Dr. Stone, the excitement of watching a civilization grow and grow through all the complications that occur along the way is fantastic. Unlike Dr. Stone however, further complications arise when Mikami is forced to forge alliances and pacts with other tribes and sovereign nations alike. Seeing how the people and their home change as the series goes on brings along with it this unique feeling of progression that you wouldn't see in many other shows. Whatever happens in the present will forever affect the future, and in this show, that idea is conveyed well through the characters who change and their world that changes with them.

pinkdots41 pinkdots41 says...

Both anime's involve the building of civilizations. Also, there's some cool fighting scenes in both. Both have really great leaders as well.

They are two very different stories, but both are equally engaging. Not much I can really add to it. The characters are all interesting, and it can be a good glimpse into a political world building. 

7 Seeds

7 Seeds

Natsu, Arashi and a few dozen others had gone to bed like any other night when they woke up... somewhere else. In this new post-apocalyptic future, mutated plants and animals lie in every direction and mankind is long extinct. Scientists of the past predicted that a meteorite would strike Earth and render the planet uninhabitable, so they devised a plan: they would cryogenically freeze five teams of young adults and have them revived by a computer when life is again sustainable. Seven people formed each team along with a guide specially trained to survive in the wild, and seven caches of supplies were left to be found. Together, the teams must try to survive in a new and hostile world, inadvertently finding the other survivors and clues to their circumstances along the way.

ShiroHatake ShiroHatake says...

Both shows follow a group of young people trying to start from scratch to rebuild society after a worldwide calamity level event. Both also focus on the scientific and realistic struggles people would face in rebuilding society from scratch. 

Jaimefm Jaimefm says...

Both of these anime involve people waking up in the distant future. They are forced to think creatively and solve problems. Though Dr. Stone focuses more on the scientific side of things, there is plenty of critical thinking and a big focus on survival and the future of humanity. 

MyNeighm MyNeighm says...

they both are set in a post-disaster/apocalyptic scenario where there are a few people from before it that are trying to fix things, but they're just different enough that the other is still interesting.

GeminiRabbit GeminiRabbit says...

The main characters in these animes wake up to an unfamilar world after an apocalyptic event after being in a comatose state for many years.

Food Wars! Shokugeki no Souma

Food Wars! Shokugeki no Souma

Ever since he was little, Souma Yukihira's main goals have been to beat his father in a cooking contest and take over the family diner. That's why, when his dad suddenly announces that he's shutting the restaurant down and sending Souma to cooking school, Souma is shocked. However, Tohtsuki Academy is no ordinary cooking school. This elite institution is filled with culinary giants like Erina "God Tongue" Nakiri, who does her best to keep a lowly short-order like Souma from even making it inside the door. However, if the snobs can dish it out, Souma can serve it up, and when he learns that only a handful of the students manage to graduate every year, he swears that the only way he'll leave is as number one!

TooOldForAnime TooOldForAnime says...

The way food is central in food wars, in the same way science is central in Dr. Stone. Both series feature main characters obsessed with reaching a higher level of understanding of these central elements. Much of the episodes are also spent in explaining the details behind how these central elements work, how the raw materials that construct a meal or a piece of technology function and their importance.

Rascal Rascal says...

Both shows are about a main character who is extremely invested in the subject of the anime and are a prodigy in their field, with Food Wars it's food production, with Dr. Stone it's science. Both have a troupe of friends who help them, they're both shounen-structured, and both have a lot of educational elements, and are created with passion for their subject matter. If you like unique shounen focused on an interesting subject of real life, you'll like both.

afirric afirric says...

dr. stone explains things in detail. if you liked the anime because of that aspect, you'll for sure like the first two seasons of shokugeki no soma.

RickyBundo RickyBundo says...

Both are really good! Dr Stone explores science and technology while Food Wars explores food but really dives into the details of why things cook and taste the way that they do down to scientific detail

closetneet closetneet says...

Both of these shows have extremely similar prodigy MCs and an identical way to show off their subject, whether it be science or food.

boredForeveer boredForeveer says...

I feel like this is mostly similar because of it's teaching in science. They both have action scenes that can tell you about the science behind it. Cells at Work! is part of the body system that keeps you alive/takes care of your body while Dr. Stone is essentially rebuilding life at a rapid pace, so it shows you a lot of "basic" science skills.

Dakarma Dakarma says...

Well they both deal with science and its pretty funny. Good show to learn with.And they both have some action in the show. Plus a pretty good OP 

odetoguns odetoguns says...

the two of them are about science. They teach you things that you might not know about how the world works, while being funny and light-hearted.

Littlesilverwolf Littlesilverwolf says...

They are anime that give education purpose. Cells on biology and stone on chemistry and physics. They introduces science facts through animation.

CallMeIcebrick CallMeIcebrick says...

Well, cute boys and girls talking about science in one, cute boys and girls cells and cellettes talking about health in the other one. Although Cells at Work is less story and more akin to Magic School Bus.

Death Note

Death Note

Such grim daydreams might occur when watching the dismal daily news, but on one fateful day, Light Yagami finds that these daydreams can become reality. By pure happenstance, he comes across a black notebook entitled "Death Note", whose text within states that whoever's name is written on its pages will die.

Fierceflower Fierceflower says...

Both are thoughtful anime. One is rooted in a grand story and the other in a world of science. Light and Senku are both manipulative people however Senku is a more upstanding guy that you can root for. Both are beautifully animated and crafted anime. I would really appreciate it if you gave this show a watch.

NekoNejs NekoNejs says...

You kind of just sees it from the other side this time, like a person gets to rebuild the orld, and thinks hes god, but hes the villan without noticing?

i agree very much, very good series rewcommend very much. i love both series. although death note is much darker  and more sinister than dr stone :)

Seven high school students are involved in an airplane crash. When they woke up, they found themselves in a parallel world where magic and beastmen exist. Of course, they panicked at their sudden unexpected predicament... or not? Instead, they create a power plant in a world that doesn't have electricity, they did a little extra work and managed to take economic control over a metropolis, they managed to repay their gratitude to some oppressed citizens by upending a corrupt government, and basically do whatever they feel like?!

This reccomendation goes both ways, if you enjoyed either of these shows you may take a liking to both of them.

High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even in Another World which we will further state as HSP and Dr. Stone both share advancement of a civilization from a less technological era. Dr. Stone focuses on building from the stone age while HSP is more focused on overthrowing a corrupt society and building it back up from scratch.

Littlesilverwolf Littlesilverwolf says...

Both anime similar with setting of building civilization. Both anime contains a few knowledge which may or may not be useful.

Dr. Stone starts out from scratch while prodigies starts with basic old century western culture.

Both animes capture the idea of a scientist excelling in an unscientific world. Pharma and Senkuu are very different characters but they both are determined to help people and advance scientific progress.

Littlesilverwolf Littlesilverwolf says...

Both about using their science information to help rebuilding a better life. Both includes a lot of knowledge.

However, pharmacy focus on medicine while dr stone has various scientific information.

Chitaka Chitaka says...

Both of these anime have remarkable scientific detail to spice up otherwise tired tropes (Isekai for Parallel World Pharmacy and Shonen for Dr Stone.) The main character in both is a charismatic genius who means well (though Pharma is more of a true altruist) who has to explain scientific principles to a society of people with no understanding of such ideas. There are some human antagonists in these anime but largely the "enemy" is situations to be overcome with science

They seek to revive the Tree of Exodus, an incomprehensibly powerful entity of alien origin, to save the world from the tyranny of its antithesis: the Tree of Genesis that powers their magic. Hakaze, however, believes their efforts put humanity in jeopardy; and with her power limited, she can only reach out to the world to beg for aid. Her call reaches Mahiro Fuwa, a young man grieving the mysterious death of his sister, Aika. He and his friend Yoshino agree to help - on the condition that Hakaze track down Aika's killer with her magic.
