In regard to Ascendance of a Bookworm II
I think the clue is in the title, she's just going to ascend into higher society as the story goes on. She'll probably leave behind her family and marry a noble or something when she's older and then she'll go about fixing what's really wrong with the world: not being free to read anything and everything all the time with no obligations or distractions. Meanwhile, she might also help suppress the rebellion with her op mana since slavery is so cool to her. That seems realistic to me much more so than what should happen which might go something like this:
She's going to be forcibly adopted into a noble family so her real family put up a fight and are captured/killed. That sends her off the rails and she kills some noble bigshot with the crushing, escaping afterwards with a survivor from her family or that boy she's always with. She's wanted everywhere so they seek out someone from the rebellion which the Head Priest helps with somehow because he's not fond of the way things are secretly and also feels guilty for the noble adoption thing since it was his idea. From then we learn about the Priest and the rebellion while Myne starts to act like an adult for once and puts her knowledge and op mana to use helping liberate the oppressed people from these shite nobles.
That sounds much more appealing to me honestly... alas, it will forever be just a story in my head. And I have to agree again, the Priest fellow is the only one left that is remotely interesting but I have confidence in the show to ruin him too.
your pfp is cool
