Synopsis for BOFURI: I don't want to get hurt, so I'll maximize my defense

After an enthusiastic invitation from her friend, Kaede Honjou reluctantly agrees to try New World Online, a very popular VRMMO played by thousands of people in Japan. She names her character after Maple and embarks on her journey. A newcomer to such games, she allocates all of her stat points to vitality and wishes that she felt no pain in her experience. Without a single point on any other stat, Maple boasts an impenetrable defense but is unable to move fast or hit hard.

This doesn't end badly for her, however, as Maple gains powerful abilities like Total Defense, Poison Immunity, and Devour. These abilities, along with the incredibly powerful gear she's been given, allow her to take down most enemies with a single hit, allowing Maple to claim third place in an event held across the server after a few days of play takes place, and earns a reputation as an immortal and absurdly broken player.
