Header.pngSynopsis

Rozemyne awakens from her two-year sleep to a world that isn’t as she remembers it. The strange sensation fills her with unease, but she has no time to rest—she is soon to be enrolled in the Royal Academy as an archduke candidate, where she will be taught how to control her mana, make magic tools, and perform the magic needed to rule as an archduke. She begins dormitory life with colorful teachers and students from other duchies, aiming to be the best big sister possible... but there is little chance things will go according to plan when there is a massive library on the premises. She charges there at once, the other archduke candidates and even the royal family disappearing from her mind entirely. She truly will do anything for books!

Now begins a new chapter of this biblio-fantasy, with a school as its setting! This volume includes two original short stories, a four-panel manga drawn by You Shiina, and the results of the second popularity poll.

Header.pngSummary

After waking up from the jureve, Rozemyne requests an overview of the lost time from Ferdinand. After the overview is given, Rozemyne struggles to readjust among her attendants, who have all grown up while she hadn't changed much at all. She tries to remain optimistic despite the fact that her lengthened stay in the jureve had weakened her to the point where she couldn't move without help. Ferdinand supplies her with magic tools to help her move again.

Rozemyne learns that she will soon be sent to the castle to prepare for the Royal Academy though she protests that she'd rather stay a year behind to recover. Ferdinand convinces her to go anyway. Rozemyne continues to discuss her lost time with her attendants, learning about various cooking competitions, Ferdinand's overworking of himself, and the arrival of new orphans.

Rozemyne meets with an older Benno and Lutz, who also report to her.

Rozemyne leaves to go to the castle to learn grace, etiquette, prepare for her classes, as well as strengthen her body under Bonifatius's tutelage. She meets with her guard knights as well. Rejuvenated by the Royal Academy's library, she begins studying and preparing in earnest.

Rozemyne crams until the last minute, alongside preparing the winter playroom, and the departs to the Royal Academy. There she meets Hirschur, the dorm supervisor, and chooses her retainers. She also starts discussing her plans to increase the duchy's grades with them. In a meeting with all the students later, she begins by removing faction tensions and preparing rewards to have everyone work together.

During the Fellowship gatherings, Rozemyne has to greet the prince Anastasius, and then the archduke candidates from various other duchies.

Rozemyne, who desires the library, is tricked by Wilfried into believing that her library access would only be granted if all the first years pass their classes. In return, Rozemyne forces everyone to cram so all of them can pass their classes at once and she can get to the library sooner.

Rozemyne's highbeast making lessons goes awry when the instructor, Fraularm finds the shape of the pandabus offensive, as it is a grun, and eventually faints at Rozemyne's continue refusal and usage. Her mana compression lesson is also a fiasco with Rozemyne inventing a new method as to not give away her own method, which Hirschur immediately wants to get her hands on.

Rozemyne is invited to a tea party with the music professors. And then, finally, Rozemyne registers at the library, and in her joy, she blesses the library with a genuine prayer, causing the two shumil library assistants, Schwartz and Weiss to activate. She is informed that she would have to regularly donate mana as well as prepare them with new clothes.

Rozemyne and Wilfried (thanks to Rozemyne's advice) are the only ones to pass court etiquette on the first day. Rozemyne collapses on her schtappe acquisition after she walks to the end of the corridor and then back.

Wilfried is invited to a tea party by his cousin, Detlinde. Rozemyne has a run in with Prince Anastasius, who wants to see her highbeast.

Rozemyne passes her highbeast creation class, and looks at the Royal Academy from the sky. Then, Rozemyne moves on to her last class. She passes it in a single lesson, like all her others, making her feat comparable to that of Ferdinand.

Sylvester gets increasingly problematic headaches over brief Hirschur's reports telling of Rozemyne's newest exploits.
