    Play Anime Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri...

    Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu – 05


    「防御特化と戦利品.」 (Bougyo Tokka to Senrihin.)
    “Defense and Spoils of War”

    To complete the second event in Bofuri, Maple and Sally work to gather medals with the help of friends and foes alike. Mainly, it continues the trend where we get to see the two chip away at the bosses and players they face through their combined strengths.

    Admittedly, it’s become increasingly difficult to write about a show like this because the meat and potatoes of the past few episodes are the boss encounters the duo faces. As a result,the plot you get from the series so far begins and ends with Maple using poison/devour skills and Sally using plotkai agility skills to clear through otherwise challenging fights. A new skill is gained here and there and the dev team is impotently wary of how easy it is to break the game.

    That’s not to say the anime isn’t a great experience since it is pleasant and relaxing to see how cheery Maple and Sally get as they progress through the game. It just has the peculiar distinction of being a comfy healing anime disguised as an VRMMORPG isekai. As such, it’s tricky to discuss the game’s mechanics as you would with other more dramatic shows that are within this genre. Especially when the game in this anime is far too broken to account for overpowered players. Instead, because emphasis is placed solely on Maple and Sally’s experiences with getting better and more familiar with the game, there is a stark enough contrast that it has more influence from slice-of-life or healing anime than the nefarious espionage, betrayal, and cybercrime that’s involved with other popular gaming anime.

    But above all else, Episode 05 gives us a better feel for Kasumi as a character. Her position in the beginning of the episode is much like how she was in the final moments of the last one; well-composed and ready to fight. As she goes through the chain ordeal with Maple and Sally, however, she grows more comfortable with the girls and is taken aback by their generosity that she would come to appreciate. Eventually, the next time they crossed paths was far more cordial as the three hid in a cave that was walled off by Maple’s poison. In fact, it’s one of the two moments where Maple’s Hydra ability made for some fun comedy; the first of which being when she poisons the ocean so that the boss monster’s health slowly dwindles while its off-screen,

    We’re also introduced to Kanade, a mage who loves nothing more than solving the game’s puzzles. It’s hard to get a read on her because her secretive nature is far different than what we expect from some of the other supporting members of the cast. And because of her insistence on keeping her secrets hidden and handing things to Maple with no strings attached, it should be interesting to see if she plays a larger role in helping or hindering Maple later on in the anime.
