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 very popular VRMMO played by thousands of people in Japan. Naming her character Maple, she sets off on her own journey. As a novice to such games, she assigns all of her stat points to vitality, wishing she felt no pain in the experience of it. Without a single point in any other stat, Maple boasts impenetrable defense, but is unable to move fast or hit hard.
However, this does not end badly for her, as Maple gains powerful abilities such as Total Defense, Poison Immunity, and Devour. These abilities, along with the incredibly powerful gear she’s gotten, 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 of the entire server, earning himself a reputation as an unkillable and absurdly broken player.
