After fanatically playing the VRMMO World Fantasy Online for almost a year, the shut-in yet relatively affluent 15-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.

With the global pandemic going on around the world right now, there’s one form of entertainment that is satisfying for millions and millions of people around the world: video games. Specifically, RPG of the MMORPG genre are real time sinks. We find out the easy way once 15-year old Yuna is introduced to the show. As an adventurer in the online game, World Fantasy Online, she is best described as the typical nerd at home.

Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear is exactly what it sounds like. What it advertises is what you get and that is our main character dressed up in a bear outfit. It may ...

Mixed Feelings
To me it's your typical slice of life, trying to be an isekai by the writers. I would put it as designed for pre-teen and tween girls and maybe the odd furry.

The story is a simple one, the girl does not do much but plays the game, shut in the house, works from home, goes to sleep one night, doesn't wake up, but instead is in the VR world. A consistently overused idea.

Aiming it more at girls also cuts its audience for me, i am not saying a boy can't enjoy it, but would be looking for more ISekai generally and ...

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 ...
