That "Counter" skill was such an asspull. Only way to justify the fact of dealing damage to a player who is like 40 levels above you.

Well, this series was what it was. Entertaining when it was only about Maple gaining crazy skills while dealing with bosses but utterly underwhelming when it focused on PvP confrontations since we already knew how things will end with such broken MC.

Regarding cast, Maple as protagonist was nice and pretty likeable but the rest of characters were absolutely forgettable. Especially Sally, who was such a bland co-protagonist I couldn't help but feel disappointed with the amount of screen-time she ended up receiving.

6/10 - Also damn, they really overkilled that insert song by using it in almost every episode...

a fun finish to an SOLish anime. still hoping us humans can evolve enough to have real VR games. not sure i can play it in my lifetime, also guessing my kids still wont see it in theirs too. if only i were born like 100 years into the future lol...

surprised how they didnt win the event since there were 7 godzillas, 1 of them even killed off the top players. was also surprised pain was a chill guy, thought hed be more of a 'sore loser' (prolly not a sore loser per se, but winning against an opponent +30 lvls above seems too broken) after getting OHKd. also feels kind of weird how chrome was the only guy in the gang (yep, also thought kanade was a guy too).

hopefully the next season might show other chars more often.
anime/manga version of steam would be awesome - https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1625396

And the demon lord Maple saves the day by eating the hero of justice and his friends...wait, something's off.

And then the great devil Maple unleashed her army of demons onto the lands and slaughtered adventurers without mercy, happily ever after...hold on, that doesn't sound right either.

In any case, that was outright insane.


Well all in all, Bofuri turned out to be a real treat. The lighthearted approach made Maple's progress to final boss level absolutely hilarious and I couldn't get enough of her constant game breaking antics. The contrast between Maple's ditzy, cutesy personality and her menacing, overwhelming might made it all the better. I love that recurring insert song and it was an absolute riot when they played it during the PK fest this episode.

The prospect of a second season has me more than ready to embrace more of Maple's divinity as a angelic, demonic, monstrous, nuclear gundam that turns into a poisonous ball of wool and flies on a giant turtle with twin loli Thor ready to rain thunder down on her foes.

8/10

Kanade is male. Evidently, this is better explained in the novels, or something.

Such a great finale.

I loved this anime. It was much better than I expected.

Maple, Sally, May and Yui were my favorite characters. <3

Maple and her new skills and the wacky transformations were hilarious. :D

9/10

I wonder what color hair Mai and Yui have outside the game. Perhaps Mai being the oldest, went with their natural hair color while Yui went the opposite direction? What do you think?

Whether female or male, the overpower thang can get very boring quickly. The "Mary Sue" aspect was just too much and almost ruined my oft fantasy of using shields in awesome ways. The show began well enough, but just got too repetitive. If it had been a true Isekai, or at the least a "Stuck in game" scenario", it would have added some good flavor to the show. Still it was okay and I might watch season 2. I still like shields lol :P

Mary Sue is perfect in awry thing and she is not she is just OP, ppl are starting to forget the definition of Mary Sue and the difference between OP and Mary Sue

Wholesome SAO with wholesome OP Kirito lol



Kidding, it is the total opposite of that edgy series, and it is amazing.

I was not expecting to be this nice even being nothing pretentious all the time.


Lets see S2 with more wholesome asspulled MMORPG cheats of our Canadian shield lol

Is it just me, or did Sally’s daggers just go AWOL on her after Maple got reduced to 1 hp by Payne? No wonder why Sally couldn’t defend against Frederica’s multi-barrier attack.

I think you miss the whole message of the show, Bofuri is not about Maple being the most OP and best player in this anime, BUT the true message is just having FUN playing games with your friend and Not to be toxic.

And I think that message make this anime one of my MOST Favorite anime of all time.

Definitely a freakin EPIC finale with Maple going berserk.. And with that SEVEN Godzillas? I've never seen this savage end before

But really.. I'm actually quite impressed on this anime. I'm always avoiding this on my list because it's an another typical OP MC, and that I'll get bored before picking ul the interest of watching it any further.. So after almost 2 years I finally try to watch it. At first, I get really bored on the first 3 episodes. But taking an hour break and coming back to this helps, I think (I dunno if I'm just sleepy or what), and I really enjoyed it from then on. So if some of you are planning on dropping it after the first couple of eps, don't cuz it gets better overtime

8/10 for this. And more Maple's OPness coming in the second season! Can't wait :)

And also props to SILVER LINK. for decent animations.. Never thought they can do this sick fight scenes

That was interesting. It was funny and entertaining when Maple stumbles across random skills through obscure means.

I do wish it took itself a little less seriously though, there's a lot of action scenes that try to give the illusion that something bad will happen. But really we all know how it will end up.

Overall 6/10. Decent I'd say, it would have been nice if some of the other characters had a little more life breathed into them over the 12 episodes.
I swear I'm not a lolicon.

If your favourite character is Tsutsukakushi Tsukiko, you are my soul mate.

Been a long time since I've been here, I'll continue expressing myself freely and believe everyone should too.

I liked this series a lot! Maple is adorably ditzy and plays the game her own way.

Misery without her hat is really cute!

I think the green dev is voiced by Kuno Misaki but I can't read japanese so I can't confirm it.

Looking forward to season 2!

Your real reason for causing hysterics. Get off the forums. Your bias doesn't not need to match everyone else. We're not your clones and you're not our Queen Ant/Bee.
When I say the anime production company shit on the series and exploited it base just to sell fanservice and references to other series, it labels what is wrong with the series. Your comment suggests you are god and everyone should do and believe what you say.

thank YOU. I'd always wanted to say this to all the high brow elitists who think Anime exists only for them. No one's forcing them to Watch this and they can drop this at any time but Noooooo. They come to forums complaining about the flaws which every viewer already knows and ignores because the show is good overall. It's not like this is the only anime like this is made and heck these kind of anime are in the minority, 2-3 per season.

Well at least Atrocity was her actual trump card, made me forget about the mecha thing a bit. Did not expect that "conclusion" of the tournament though, very open ending.

First half was good, I enjoyed her just levelling up and finding ways how to break the game quite interesting. The guild stuff was also cool, even though most of the characters felt quite bland. The biggest problem for me was that mecha transformation which did not fit in there at all, also the last arc was way too long, the fighting was kinda boring. Even though the animation and art were really good as you would expect from Silver Link. 7/10
