Whatever else can be said for Bofuri, it is Exactly What It Says On The Tin.
Kaede joins the online VRMMO New World Online (gee, I wonder what that could be a reference to) with the character name of Maple. However as she’s never played any game like that before, and doesn’t want to get hurt, she builds a tank character.
Correction: she builds the tank character: 100% of starting points into defence, and 100% of everything after that into defence as well.
Bofuri is pretty lighthearted stuff, mostly harmless, and I had fun watching it. Which, given what I just finished watching, was just what the doctor ordered.
The only caveat is that there’s a lot of points with rapid fire subtitles for things like chat sessions which are awkward to manage on the iPad; I may have to rewatch it on the main rig once I’m back in Canberra to catch all of those.
All in all I don’t expect Bofuri to ever be a great show, but I do expect it to be a fun show. Sometimes that’s all I’m looking for.
