Like the first season, the production staff includes Shin Oonuma as director, Fumihiko Shimo as series screenwriter, Kazuya Hirata as character designer and chief animation director, and Tarou Masuda as music composer. SILVER LINK is handling the animation production for the series once again. 

Meanwhile, the returning voice 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.

The anime is an adaptation of the light novel series written by Yuumikan and illustrated by Koin, which began on September 8, 2017 and has released 15 volumes as of January 2023. It was originally a web novel published on Shousetsuka ni Narou in 2016. The series is published under the Kadokawa Books label and also inspired Oimoto’s manga adaptation in 2018.

Yen Press releases both the light novels and manga in English and describes the first light novel 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…
