Bofuri Season 2 Announced! What We Know So Far [2022 Update]

BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense is a popular action-adventure anime that was first released in January 2020. Luckily, Silver Link Studios have announced the confirmation of Bofuri Season 2.

Bofuri or “Itai no wa Iya nano de Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu” is an adaptation of a light novel series written by Yuumikan. The show had a total of 12 episodes and it ended on a cliffhanger.

The ending of the show indicated a follow-up and fans were not sure if the show will be returning for another season. Since season 1 ended, fans’ expectations for Bofuri Season 2 have been high.

Here’s everything we know about season 2 of Bofuri so far.

Bofuri Season 2 Confirmed!


The good news for fans as Bofuri Season 2 is confirmed and is in the process. The official announcement of the show does not include a release date for the next season, but it was expected to broadcast at the end of 2022 or early 2023.

The fact that the studio has not yet shared a release date for season 2 might concern some viewers as it might be postponed. But there is no official announcement of the delay on its Twitter page or other official sources.

We are certain that the anime will not be airing anytime before October – November 2022. Most anime seasons premiere during October, so we can expect season 2 to premiere at the same time.

However, considering the timeline, it is safe to say that the release might be extended to 2023. Till then, stay tuned for updates.

Some other anime that got renewed include Mushoku Tensei, Tokyo Revengers, and Made in Abyss.

Bofuri Season 2 Trailer – Official Announcement

Funimation made the official announcement of Bofuri Season 2 on Twitter in 2020. Even though there is no official release date announced, the show is expected to make a comeback this year.

JP Anime and AnimeUniverse recently released the official teaser trailer of Bofuri Season 2 hyping fans across the world.

What Is The Story of Bofuri Season 2?


Bofuri Season 2 will see Maples’s adventures in the game in detail. The first season ended with the assumption that there will be another season. At the end of season 1, Maple uses a risky counter move to deal with Payne’s damage, even though she is almost out of power.

She uses Payne’s Atrocity form to defeat the members of Holy Sword. The admins then decide to leave Maple alone as she has drawn a lot of new members into the game.

Although the plot and story for season 2 have not been revealed yet, we can expect it to continue in the wake of Maple’s triumph in the gaming industry.

Maple Tree Guild is too overpowered at the time with all the bases covered. But its size still remains small, so we can expect new members to join in season 2.

Bofuri Light Novel series is still ongoing, with Volume 13 released in March 2022. As the series is continuing, it means there is a lot of story that can be covered in season 2 and plenty of source material for another season.

What is Bofuri About


Kaede Honjou receives an invitation from her friends to play the VRMMO game New World Online under the name Maple. In order to not get hurt, Maple uses all per points to max out her defenses. As a result, she is only left with slow foot speed and no magic.

However, her max-out defenses allow her to endure even lethal hits without taking any damage. She gains a one-shot killing ability called “Absolute Defense”. With this new ability, she can nullify all attacks.

With her creative thinking and maximum defense, Kaede accomplishes a lot of things in the game and becomes one of the strongest players in the game.
