Story by Yuumikan
Illustrations by Koin

When it comes to the VRMMO NewWorld Online, Kaede Honjou isn’t your run-of-the-mill greenhorn gamer. Forgoing a typical stat allocation for her Great Shielder, Maple, she pumps all her points into defense from the get-go! Her reasoning? “I don’t want to get hurt.” With no magic, agility, or strength to speak of, this walking fortress will have to get creative to beat the baddies early on. But little does she know that her pure-stat build will propel her to chaotic new heights that even the game admins couldn’t account for!

Bofuri: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, So I’ll Max Out My Defense is the light novel series that inspired the hit anime that stands out as one of the most popular of 2020. Led by an adorable and endearing protagonist, this series excellently combines action, comedy and ever popular RPG elements to tell a story that appeals to a wide audience.

When Kaede Honjou agrees to try out VRMMO gaming with her best friend from high school, her inexperience and “I don’t want to get hurt” outlook cause her to max out her defense points—leaving her with no attack points to speak of!
