BOFURI: I Don't Want to Get Hurt, so I'll Max Out My Defense.


Bofuri, also known as "Itai no wa Iya nano de Bōgyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu" is a Japanese light novel, manga, and anime series. The story follows a high school student named Kaede Honjou, who enters a virtual reality game called NewWorld Online (NWO) to bond with her friend. Despite being a beginner, Kaede becomes overpowered due to her unique ability to nullify damage, which she discovered by investing all her skill points into defense.

Kaede's journey in NWO is full of exciting adventures, battles, and friendships. She meets various players, forms a guild, and explores the game's world with her friends. The series also explores the darker side of the virtual world, including cheating and hacking, and how they can affect the game's balance and fairness.

Bofuri's popularity comes from its unique take on the virtual reality genre, where the main character becomes overpowered by investing in defense rather than offense. The series also has a light-hearted and comedic tone, making it a fun watch for those who enjoy action and comedy in equal measure.
