[D] BOFURI: I Don't Want to Get Hurt, so I'll Max Out my Defence

Post by Ojisama » 10 May 2022, 23:40

I read quite a bit of the LN, and started on the manga. Never expected it to become an anime.

Watched the first 2 episodes, and it is quite faithful from what I can remember.

I like it because the premise is so me. If I did game, it would be a character that had maximum defence.

The text for the chat convos is a bit to quick to read at times (I watch subs), but then again real chats are like that for me anyway.
To those just starting on the journey of life I say...

It's been a while, but I did find it enjoyable, and of course it fills a out a lot story that you don't see in the anime.

Episode 3, and the devs fight back. Maple tastes defeat for the first time? Well, sort of.

Now up to episode 5. Maple's friendly character means that the number of friends is increasing, and she keeps making up new ways to use her skills, all totally oddball.

Much the same as we go through 6 & 7.

This is on my list to read next. So I’ll let you know.

I know a few have read it and there are mixed reviews. Some like it and others don’t.

Episode 8

If I had this girls luck, I'd never stop gaming 'cos it would be a blast. Now she has the power of something from Infinite Stratos or Sonic Divers.

The last 4 eps are just one big melee, and even I forgot just how may different skills she has. Go Mmmmmmmmaple!

The anime is face paced comparatively and it skips quite a bit and twists the story a bit.

Anyways the LN is entertaining not the best but it’s still enjoyable to read.

Just finished episode 4, the admins are upset. They've forgotten the number one rule of games - it's to make sure the player has a great time.
