Bofuri: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense. Season 2 begin airing on January 11. It was originally announced with a 2022 release date. The first season aired in 2020 with 12 episodes.
The anime is an adaptation of the light novel series written by Yuumikan and illustrated by Koin, which began in 2017 and has 15 volumes as of January 2023. 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…
Like the first season, the staff 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 again the animation production company.
Meanwhile, the returning cast includes Kaede Hondo as protagonist Maple, Ruriko Noguchi as Sally, Saori Hayami as Kasumi, Satomi Arai as Kanade, Noriaki Sugiyama as Kuromu, Satomi Satou as Iz, Ai Kakuma as Mai, and Nanaka Suwa as Yui.
Bofuri was originally a web novel on Shousetsuka ni Narou in 2016. A manga adaptation by Jirou Oimoto began in 2018.
