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…
The returning staff for Bofuri Season 2 includes Shin Oonuma as director, Fumihiko Shimo as series composer, Kazuya Hirata as character designer and chief animation director, and Tarou Masuda as music composer. SILVER LINK is in charge of the animation production again.
