After fanatically playing the VRMMO World Fantasy Online for almost a year, the shut-in yet relatively affluent fifteen-year-old Yuna receives a bear costume from the game's administrators. The outfit, while somewhat embarrassing to wear, turns out to have overpowered stats and effects that make her character significantly more powerful. After accepting the bear equipment, she finds herself transported to another in-game world that prevents her from returning to reality.

Confused and unable to log out, Yuna sets out to explore this new environment. She rescues a girl named Fina from wild wolves, who then guides her to the city of Crimonia. With her eccentric bear attire, however, Yuna stands out wherever she goes, and alongside her boosted fighting prowess, her reputation quickly rises—to the point that people give her the nickname "Bloody Bear."

Undeterred by this change in her life, Yuna decides to take on the role of an adventurer and fully enjoy herself in her new world.

I had my expectations to the ground because I knew that Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear was aimed at an audience of 4 to 13 and I am not surprised that it has a second season because this type of tea is very popular in the Japanese, we know that there are An adult audience that washes and if you see a year that invites you to see this anime even if it is a girl if you do not like it, leave with any excuse because that person is crazy and is selling you stinky skunk smoke because: the story is mediocre, bore 1000 read more

Transported into a game: the genre, has just gone nuclear....nuclear cute!!

The premise alone makes it a hilarious take and the first few episodes really bring home the embarrassment and cuteness that comes with overpowered bear suits. The creativity to continue the bear theme is certainly impressive and the good-naturedness of the show is welcomely wholesome.

Unfortunately, as the show continues it suffers from the wash, rinse, repeat of it all with little to do with character.

The show itself is pretty and chose a unique palette for the art to emphasize the cuteness. It's a fun watch nonetheless.

There really isn't much substance, and when compared to read more

This show is basically 3 different shows combined into one. not in a good way.

It starts off as you expect. video gamer gets isekai'd to fantasy world with OP videogame powers. typical premise. the first few episodes are about her learning the world and her abilities. saving people by beating up monsters for the adventurer's guild. again, expected. The main problem in this part is that Yuna does it all with the soulessness of a puppet. Zero personality. Perhaps she's an autist.

After 4 episodes of that it devolves into a 'food tastes good' anime. I don't know how many times people need to be reminded read more

Sunk cost fallacy is a peculiar thing. When presented with a show I know wasn't going to get better, somehow some psychological effects in my brain kept telling me to soldier on and to see it to the end of this frankly mediocre as hell show. And by the tail end of it I was exhausted by it all and I'm here right now to tell you why you shouldn't be like me and waste your time on this. After reviewing so many shows for close to a decade, I've found it most difficult to articulate why a show is boring or mediocre as opposed read more
