Synopsis

After an enthusiastic invitation from her friend, Kaede Honjou reluctantly agrees to try New World Online: a very popular VRMMO played by thousands of people across Japan. Naming her in-game character Maple, she sets out on her journey. As a complete novice to such games, she allocates all of her stat points into vitality, desiring to not get hurt. With not a single point in any other stat, Maple has extraordinarily high defense, but she can't move quickly or hit hard.

This does not end badly for her, however. Due to her high defense, Maple acquires overpowered skills such as Total Defense, Poison Immunity, and Devour. These skills, along with the incredibly powerful items she obtains, allow her to obliterate most enemies in a single hit. After only a few days of playing the game, Maple claims third place in a server-wide event, gaining a reputation as a player who is both unkillable and absurdly powerful.

Despite her overpowered character, Kaede has much to learn. As she progresses through the game, she meets new friends and acquaintances, helping her complete new levels and events. Through all of her adventures, she may even pick up some other crazy skills that exceed all expectations.

Funny and recommended anime.
I've watched it twice already.

I remember from a young age in every game I always thought too much about what to put in my stats.
The anime is very funny and pleasant.
The pace of the series is excellent.
The music is good.
The art is great.
I would add a little more backstory to the characters.
The creators of the series really thought deeply about her crazy abilities and every time I was surprised.

Season 2 Bofuri: I don't want to get hurt, so I'll max out my defense.

This anime follows the adventures of a new player, Maple, as she dives into the virtual reality MMORPG game called "NewWorld Online." It starts off exploring the level 4 map in the game. A quick montage of everybody being boring and Maple being OP. Fluffy fur secrets awaits you from one of the guild master. I personally like her better with the glasses. (I love a Nerd.) I also just want to add that Maple syrup is still the best master pet combo I have heard. (I vow to get a ...

Okay, so this was another anime for my anime club which means I had to finish it. Otherwise I would have dropped it after three episodes.

So, the idea is fun, a character who puts everything in one stat, but the execution is boring. Also it doesn't make sense to me why she is this overpowered. I get the part where she has good defense because that's what she put all of her points in, but she should have no attack power or barely any. They do make her slower which is something.
What I don't get is why this game starts with all your ...
