Bofuri Season 2 was announced in January 2021 with a 2022 release date. The anime is based on the light novel series written by Yuumikan and illustrated by Koin, which began in 2017 and has 14 volumes as of August 2022. The series is published under the Kadokawa Books label. 

Yen Press describes the first volume as:

IS SHE THE GAME’S LAST BOSS?! Though she doesn’t play many MMOs, Maple has either a natural talent or impossibly good luck, because by pouring every last stat point she has into Vitality, she’s created a character who can’t be hurt! Whether it’s physical attacks or magic or status effects, nothing poses a real threat. In no time at all, news spreads across the server about the adorable terror who can’t be defeated. While Maple may just be having fun, her broken build is sure to attract lots of unexpected attention…

Bofuri began as a web novel on Shousetsuka ni Narou in 2016. A manga adaptation by Jirou Aimoto began in 2018.
