The team behind BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense has announced an upcoming anniversary stream scheduled for January 9th.

The upcoming stream will be hosted on the official Kadokawa Anime YouTube channel. The anniversary stream will begin at 6:30pm JST (4:30am EST/1:30am PST) on January 9th.

Fans will be able to catch the stream below, or the VOD if reading this article after the stream’s premiere.

A second season for the series was already teased earlier this year in an easter egg at the end of the final episode of the first season. It’s speculated that this upcoming anniversary stream will include details about the upcoming second season of BOFURI.

You can read a summary of BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense from MyAnimeList below.

“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 across Japan. Naming her in-game character Maple, she sets out on her journey. As a complete novice to such games, she allocates all of her stat points into vitality, desiring to not get hurt. With not a single point in any other stat, Maple has extraordinarily high defense, but she can’t move quickly or hit hard.

This doesn’t end badly for her, however. Due to her high defense, Maple acquires overpowered skills such as Total Defense, Poison Immunity, and Devour. These skills, along with the incredibly powerful items she obtains, allow her to obliterate most enemies in a single hit. After only a few days of playing the game, Maple claims third place in a server-wide event, gaining a reputation as a player who is both unkillable and absurdly powerful.

Despite her overpowered character, Kaede has much to learn. As she progresses through the game, she meets new friends and acquaintances, helping her complete new levels and events. Through all of her adventures, she may even pick up some other crazy skills that exceed all expectations.”

The BOFURI anniversary stream will begin on January 9th, a premiere date for the second season has yet to be announced.
