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.

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

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 read more

Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear - Bears are cute.

What would you do with your life after earning billions of yen in stocks? Our 15 years old girl Yuna confines herself to her house playing the world's first VRMMO. One day, after taking a survey in the game, she receives a bear costume without any clues where, why, what to do as a bear. But she quickly recognizes the power of bears and uses it to help people in need. And so, the story of our heroic kuma begins.

Real life sucks. Well…this is a point that we often cannot deny. Our main character Yuna also has read more

We had SAO. Then we had Spring 2020's Bofuri, which takes the former's inspiration and gives it a light-hearted, cutesy "moe blob" twist. Now welcome to the next level with the mish-mash of both shows, and you'll get the result (that is) Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear. KUMA??? GAO~~~

The Isekai power-fantasy genre has always been confined in a state of amassed "love-hate" relationships over the years since the introduction of Reki Kawahara's hugely popular LN series (that still to this day gets a bad rap), and many novelists have attempted to compose their own "unique twists" to varying degrees of successes and failures. It's not until read more
