Airing for 12 episodes and adapted from a series of light novels (that also has a manga adaptation), BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense. follows Kaede (Kaede Hondo, Megan Shipman), who joins the VRMMO NewWorld Online at her friend Risa’s insistence. But with Risa (Ruriko Noguchi, Jad Saxton) grounded, Kaede, afraid of getting hurt, decides to become a Shielder and pour all her skill points into Defense. This renders her as slow as a turtle, but it also makes her character, Maple, something of a reverse tank⁠—able to withstand punishing blows from all kinds of enemies which lets her gain amazing skills or complete dungeons solo.
