BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, So I’ll Max Out My Defense Season 1 Explained
We see in BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, So I’ll Max Out My Defense Sally was studying for examinations when Maple offered to play NewWorld Online without having to wait. Maple opted to boost her defensive game points to avoid getting wounded. As a result of “eating” the poison dragon, Maple met Chrome and Iz, and she got her first armor and weapon in-game. She also took part in the first battle royale of the game and won third place.
Sally and Maple traveled across a maze-like underground lake. They handed Sally her equipment after taking out a different supervisor. The anime’s first episode introduces viewers to Sally and Maple. Sally urged that Maple begin playing NewWorld Online immediately while she was occupied with studying for her examinations. After meeting Chrome and Iz in-game, Maple got her first armor and weapon after “eating” the poison dragon to avoid getting hurt.
To avoid getting hurt, Maple focused on putting her game points toward defense to increase it. The game’s first event, a battle royale, saw Maple finish third. Sally soon joined Maple in the game, and they explored an underground lake labyrinth with one another, defeating another boss and getting Sally her items. The second event saw Maple and Sally take down a new boss while also giving Maple the Snow White shield that she had ordered from Iz.
TA treasure hunt for parties was the third activity. After almost passing out during their battle with Silverwing, the formidable ice bird monster, Maple and Sally received their turtle and fox pets as a result of this incident. After the battle, Kasumi confronted them in the oasis in the desert. They gave each of them the names Syrup and Oboro.
With the third event, Maple was tasked with gathering bells from cow enemies. After meeting a boss in the church, she acquired a new skill. Maple acquired the Machine God skill after she became lost in the Graveyard of Dreams, but that’s not the only skill she acquired in episode 8. Amid the guild event, Sally noticed Frederica of the Order of the Holy Sword guild lurking and observing them, and after a duel between them, the guild event took place.
Guilds were expected to guard their orbs while also stealing other people’s orbs throughout the event. Sally stole orbs from other guilds and turned to the Maple Tree’s defense to protect their orbs, and at first, things were going well for the Maple Tree. Maple Tree Guild suffered in the battle against the Order of the Holy Sword Guild, and when it appeared that Maple and her team were about to lose, Maple used her newly obtained skill Machine God to defeat other players.
While this was going on, the other members of the Maple Tree Guild were gathering orbs from the other guilds. The Order of the Holy Sword, on the other hand, was planning an attack against the Maple Tree to kill it. The gang managed to defeat Maple (nearly), but Maple has a plan in mind.
She used the Unyielding Guardian skill. Using her Atrocity form, Maple defeated Payne and the Holy Sword. Sally, on the other hand, proposed that other guilds be eliminated for Flame Emperors and Holy Sword Guild to remain in the top 10. After finishing third, Maple Tree Guild hosted a party for Flame Emperors and Holy Sword Guild members.
