Hard to believe it has been a year since everyone’s other favorite shield-wielding hero Maple and her friends from the Maple Tree Guild graced the scene in Yuumikan’s BOFURI: I Don’t Want To Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense! (Itai no wa Iya nano de Bōgyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu).
Adapted from the Light Novel Series, Kaede Honjō, who is invited by her friend Risa Shiramine to play a virtual reality MMO game with her. While Kaede doesn’t dislike games, what she really, truly dislikes is being in pain. She creates a character named Maple, and decides to put all her points in VIT to minimize pain. As a result, she moves slowly, can’t use magic, and even a rabbit can get the best of her. But as it turns out, she acquires a skill known as “Absolute Defense” as a result of her pumping points into VIT, as well as a “Counter Skill” that works against special moves. Now, with her ability to nullify all damage, she goes on adventures.
The Second Season was announced today during Kadokawa Anime’s YouTube Channel’s stream titled “Maple and Sally’s Defense Specialization and Live Special“. The Second Season is set to premiere in Japan in 2022, while you can catch the first season on Funimation.
