What was the Anime: Bofuri about?

Kaede Honjou begins playing the VRMMO game New World Online after receiving an invitation from her friend Risa Shiromine. Kaede, who has no knowledge of the game, is wasting all his points on defense. As a result, he cannot do magic, and his movements are slow. It even gets beaten by rabbits. However, it gains a one-shot killing ability called “Absolute Defense”, as it maximizes defensive points. With this venomous ability that nullifies all attacks, the rookie Kaede embarks on various adventures, disrupting the order.

Bofuri manga series

As we mentioned at the beginning of our article, the anime is adapted from a light novel written by Yuumikan and illustrated by Koin. Originally published in Japan by Fujimi Shobo, the series is also available in English, thanks to Yen Press. The light novel, which started broadcasting on September 8, 2017, reached a total of 12 volumes, with the volume published on August 10, 2021. The series is still ongoing, which is good news as this anime is, in a way, a manga commercial. The only first four volumes were adapted into the anime in the first season, and there is enough source material available for more than two seasons. If everything goes well, it is possible to see the third season after the second season.

Is there a released trailer for season 2?

Funimation has not released the official second-season trailer so far. Although there are some fan-made trailers, these are not real of course. A trailer containing hints from the new season will be released in the coming months. Stay tuned for updates.
