Bofuri: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense anime is an adaptation of a Japanese light novel which goes by the same name and is written by Yuumikan and illustrated by Koin. The novel began serialization online in 2016 on the website know as Shōsetsuka ni Narō. Later, it was acquired by Fujimi Shobo who then published its first light novel volume in September 2017 under their Kadokawa Books imprint. After its popularity surged, a manga adaptation was handled by Jirō Oimoto in Kadokawa Shoten’s seinen manga magazine Comp Ace. Furthermore, an anime adaptation was made by Silver Link that was released on 8 January 2020 to 25 March 2020.
The anime was received greatly by everyone and it was so popular that the showrunners renewed the season for a second season. The details on the second season are still unknown and fans are still waiting for the release of the second season. The Bofuri season 2’s release date hasn’t been unveiled right now but in the future will be getting news on that. I think the second season might be releasing in January of 2021 as the first season of the show aired in the same month. But there is also a part of me who thinks that the second season might be releasing much later because of the Covid-19. Many anime studios have been affected by it which included the One Piece anime that is a weekly show.
But the situation has changed since then and it is possible that it will release in January but on the other, we might see the anime return in mid-2021. As of writing this, nothing has been revealed about the second season and if the season will release at the beginning of 2021 then we will get news about that very soon. As for the plot, the show follows the story of Kaede Honjō who begins playing VRMMORPG NewWorld Online. She takes up the name Maple when her friends are urging her. She doesn’t want to get hurt and she decided to be a shield user that had maxed out defense stats, and she continues to put every single point she earns in the game in order to increases her defense level.
This results in her been very slow and has no magic but she has insanely high defensive states which grants are the power of tanking hits without taking any damage. With her basic-level creative thinking, it allows her to make unexpected accomplishments in the game, its quests, and events. This also grants her many unexpected skills which help her in becoming one of the strongest players in the game. As for the cast, it will consist of Kaede Hondo will be voicing Maple, Sally voiced by Ruriko Noguchi, Kasumi voiced by Saori Hayami, Kanade voiced by Satomi Arai, Kuromu will be voiced by Noriaki Sugiyama, Iz will be voiced by Satomi Satō, and many more. If there is any news on this show we will keep you up to date on it.
