Synopsis for BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense
After an enthusiastic invitation from her friend, Kaede Honjou reluctantly agrees to try New World Online, a hugely popular VRMMO played by thousands of people in Japan. Naming her character Maple, she embarks on her journey. As a novice in such games, she allocates all of her stat points to vitality, wishing not to feel pain in her experience. Without a single point in any other stat, Maple has impenetrable defense, but is unable to move fast or hit hard.
This doesn’t end badly for her though, as Maple gains powerful abilities like Total Defense, Poison Immunity, and Devour. These abilities, along with the incredibly powerful gear she’s acquired, allow her to take out most enemies with a single hit, so after a few days of playing, Maple claims third place in an event held throughout the game. from around the server, earning a reputation as an unkillable and absurdly broken player.
