Synopsis of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear

Yuna, a fifteen year old girl, starts playing her first VRMMO game. She has raised billions of yen in stocks and is only at home to gamble without going to school. Today a major update hit the game and she is getting a super rare, non-transferable bear costume.

But using it is so embarrassing that you don't dare equip it, it doesn't even help the fact that it's just a game. If you answer the satisfaction survey about the new update and restart the game, it will find out that she is in an unfamiliar forest and wearing the suit.

Where am I? A message from God? Another world? When she wears the bear suit (which is a very powerful item) it means that she is invincible, but when she takes it off she is just a normal girl. The adventure that Yuna never asked for has only just begun!
