Yeeaaaahh.... No. Maybe I'm just narrow-minded, but shows like this just feel like the author hasn't played a single mmo in their whole life. You can make an anime about fun mmo adventures without making the mc conveniently discover some super hax build and obtain cheat skills that none of the billion other players have ever seen. Props for eating the boss though.

The story definitely seems interesting as an anime, but as an actual MMO, seems like the game's broken

Strangely very enjoyable, art is colorful sweet, Maple is cute and thinking, story as far it goes is lol'ing with shield tanking. Very broken game mechanic though with no max % defense cap that can multiply endlessly, but nevermind that.

As far with other titles going on, this is the most light heart easy to watch anime this season.

Oh right, her armor, love it! Reminds me Konno Yuuki's sleeveless plating armor.

Kaede (Maple) must be the cutest VRMMO player ever.

Her eating the dragon ranks among one of the most amusing scenes that I recall. Not that Maple's adventure in the forest was less hilarious. All the tiny and cute monsters feasting on her cracked me up.

I did not think that I would pick this one up, but I most certainly will.

Well if you are referring to the poison resistance then most likely the other players know about it. They didn't say that this was a skill that only Kaede unlocked.

It's most likely (i'm just speculating here) that poison resistance is a skill used only by shield bearers or maybe only they can reach immunity on it.

There was literally dialogue of people baffled by how she was not taking damage from poison, as if she was special and doing something nobody knew about. With the speed in which she got the resistances, that's HIGHLY unlikely.


I just re-watched that scene and the players were baffled that she was SLEEPING in the middle of a bunch poison bugs. None of them said anything about she not taking poison damage. They were impressed that she was not taking any damage at all as the bugs were all attacking her.

The first poison bug attacked her before using poison attacks. So poison attacks is not the only attacks they use.

The game mechanics we must notice here :

1. There is no base stats not like other mmo RPG that give us fixed number of stats every category str agi dex vit.

The game give us total freedom where to put 100 poins stat at level 1 to build our character.

all base stats from start is zero you need to put that 100 poin as you like base your role play or troll build.

2. The game mechanic is the classic final fantasy 2, 3 and final fantasy 5.

basicly you can make broken characters by grind basic stuff like get poison for resistance, repeatly do normal hit for increasing str and repeatly get hit for increasing defence, repeatly do basic magic to make stronger magic attack and unlock other And then character class based weapon equip.


3. Maple here basicly YouTuber play RPG with troll meme build not follow other people, some guy playing RPG but build character for meme but somehow it works.

It's rare to see mmo rpg start from 0 stats and build the character as you like.

But there is many open world RPG game that allow you to build character from scratch like fallout Skyrim and dark souls.

4. What make the game broken " NO stats Caps and seriously that stats multiplicative need a serious nerf "

but some how I want to play this game put all to STR make glass Canon and one shot everything, or pure dex make lightning speed meme build / other stupid build.

5. Just don't take the anime seriously just moe moe fantasy stuff, just cute girls doing legit cute thing.

They were also talking like they had no idea how she could survive the poison cuz they melt in an instant, and baffled that she has such super defence, as if min-maxed defence ability was completely alien to them.

Good first episode!

I found Maple really amusing and cute, she just dived in a VR game and without knowing anything she just has become that strong/resistent only maxing up defence!

She killed that hydra eating it, so hilarious!

Forum messages were really interesting aswell!

Looking forward to see Maple's friend reaction to her stats and fast development!

It's the same with every other VR/Isekai anime with game concepts... people will discuss like it should be a proper game setting... even tho it isn't really... (cause literally every VR/ Isekai always disregards "caps/ balancing" so the MCs will always be OP)

This seems to be a kid-friendly version of Rising of the Shield Hero, with the main difference being that Maple actually choosing to focus on defense instead being forced into the defense. I'm not expecting much from this show, but it can still be a pleasant, feelgood experience.

This really felt like the discount version of Sword Art Online mixed with So I'm A Spider, So What? Minus all the danger. Pretty funny, but as others said- game balance seems pretty busted.

That said, I do like the way the protagonist faces problems like a total non-gamer, because that is how things actually go in real life. If someone's never played games, and you throw them into one with minimal explaination, they'll start doing things you thought nobody would think of doing, and ask a lot of questions like "How come I can't do things this way?".

Has potential, but not too hopeful.

It reminds me of a discussion of "female super friendship" titles, where people take seriously theories that someone is a lesbian, because moe melodrama is different from the behavior of real girls. But if it makes any sense there, I don’t understand why people expect good realism and a high representation of MMO from such anime.

Seemed dull to me, but opening and ending songs were rather pleasant and seemed to feature a lot of cute girls. I'll give it a try for at least a few more episodes.
I know this title is meant to be cute and stupid first of all, but skills in this game still work kinda... unusual. And New World Online, oh come on. Also the other players are unusually nice to random people, but I guess it would ruin the cutesy atmosphere if they were rude.
That scene where MC bites the dragon to death... I honestly don't know, it was between "very cringy" and "kinda funny" for me. Her cute face when she does the big bite though :3

No logic at all....how did she defeat a hard boss without adding any single point to her attack or without a weapon....normaly...her bite it self will not couse any demage where her attack is realy realy weak
And
Its not normal for a hard boss to just have 1 patern attack
Normaly,it will also have a physical attack

It's not biting it that hurts it it's eating what she bit off that hurts it, eating counts as health drain. It took her six hours to kill it like this

It does have a Physical attack but unlike the posion it was never capable of hurting her

This was pretty fun to watch. Can't wait to see more of her upgrades xD Since she is already like this...haha
I'm happy that they showed a lot of lvling up in this episode.

This game is broken AF. Makes it a bit hard to watch, really wished she got OP defense more believably, as the ease of it makes it way too easy for someone else to do it.

Still, besides how Bethesda level broken this is, it is rather funny

Resistance shouldn't be a skill, and you definitely shouldn't be able to raise it to immunity level.


Actually, it was Poison immunity before she defeated the Hydra, after that, her poison resistance advanced to Hydra, which surpasses that of Immunity.

On another note, I found this show pretty interesting, funny, and easy to watch. It really gives someone something to do. I wonder if anyone notices that Maple has no panties on, which seems to be the case considering you see no panties parts going across her thighs. I didn't even notice that until I saw a picture and had to double-check via the anime, and it actually is true.

Although I don't really care too much about that, the armor was great and cool looking. Maple was funny at times and interesting at others. So far I have been enjoying this anime, and besides, you don't find many VRMMO game anime out there that has an adorable female protagonist. Most of them are males and I'm a bit tired of the male hero genders.

"I dont want to get hurt" also "I will stand here and tank poison damage".

Really doubt you get skills that fast, especially immunity. I have crafted Iron Daggers in Skyrim longer than this episode!

Pretty dumb way to make someone OP. Well, she is cute. There is that. And its not isekai or stuck in a game setting which is nice.

Looks pretty generic to me atm, but the only show I actually care about this season got corona so I might as well watch this.

This anime is so kawaiiiii! i can't get over with Maple cuteness. Soloing as a shield class is difficult tbh. Learning the ropes as a typical newbie in a RPG game is nostalgic though, items and skills/passive skills in the game are kinda op also. Guess i'll sit back and enjoy the rest of this show!.
