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

Asahi Broadcasting Corporation 2020

Honjou Kaede is invited by her friend Shiramine Risa to play a virtual reality MMO game with her. While Kaede doesn't dislike games, what she really, truly dislikes is being in pain. She creates a character named Maple, and decides to put all her points in VIT to minimize pain. As a result, she moves slowly, can't use magic, and even a rabbit can get the best of her. But as it turns out, she acquires a skill known as "Absolute Defense" as a result of her pumping points into VIT, as well as a "Counter Skill" that works against special moves. Now, with her ability to nullify all damage, she goes on adventures.

This was one of those 'Cute Girls doing Cute Things' type of anime. Story was not that great but the Laid-back style of Sword Art Online like anime was very enjoyable to watch. The best part of the show was the character Maple, even though only her defense was extraordinary but does she even need any other stats when she has got all that skills. Overall this show was very heart-warming to watch. **PS:** Season 2 Confirmed!

it's a more laid back version of Sword Art Online. Very enjoyable. Just a girl having fun in a VR game and somehow becomes OP. Nicely animated. Not gonna win awards, but definently worth the watch.

I don't get the point of this show, is it parody? It has a dumb humor that is not funny. It's an anime to disconnect your brain and watch. The world, I mean the game is like an indie in super duper early access without tests. [spoiler]The protagonist gets the loot with a probability of 0.00000000000000000000001% that no one else has in years of play. She has skills that no one else has obtained and those skills are the same that another slime anime... no sense, If it was an isekai it would make more sense. There is an anime where a mother enters to a video game with her son, the mother is too OP... that anime makes more sense to me.[/spoiler]

Feel good + lots of action, honestly my favorite combo for an anime. Very enjoyable and laid back!

I'm not sure why I even watched four episodes but this is it for me... It's a super generic MMORPG fantasy show which only selling point is the girls playing it (being as moe-blobbey as possible). It offers no plot to care about and the protagonists are not only clueless about the game but also just happen to be overpowered^2.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
