The synopsis of the story follows the life of Kaede, who is invited by Risa to play a virtual reality MMO game with her. Kaede doesn’t like games and hates it when she experiences any form of pain. So in the game, she creates Maple, her in-game character, and decided to put all of her points in defense.

Maple’s defenses make her move slowly, and she can not use magic. At this point, even the creatures of the woods, such as a small rabbit, get the best of her. She ended up acquiring a useful skill, “absolute defense.” This was because she kept on pumping her defenses and investing in VIT. She evolved it as far as “Counter Skill,” which works against special moves. With all her abilities customized towards nullifying damage, she goes on an adventure with her friends.
