Bofuri: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense Season 2 Expected Storyline
The Sci-Fi adventure series follows the story of Kaede Honjou, who starts playing the VRMMO game New World Online under Maple’s name after she receives an invitation from Risa Shiromine, one of her friends. Since her knowledge about the game is undeniably low, in every game, she only tries to defend herself rather than attacking, and therefore, her movement skills are slow, along with not being able to use magic, and getting attacked by the rabbits as well. However, due to exceeding the limit of her vitality points, she gets rewarded with a skill named ‘Absolute Defense’ as well as a counter ability that kills in a single attack. She also gets a ‘mobile fortress style’ that enables her to make all the attacks invalid and even override all the obstacles. She uses her basic-level creativity and makes unpredictable achievements in the game, the events, and its quest. Ultimately, she learns all varieties of unique skills and turns into one of the game’s best players.
The anime’s upcoming season will show Maple and Sally fighting off large-scale monsters, taking on game bugs, and making new friends. Unfortunately, the trailer of the second season of the show hasn’t been out yet. We will provide you further updates about the show soon.
