This anime made its debut on 8th January 2020 and had just concluded its first season that was originally scheduled for 12 episodes which had just ended on March 25. The Second Season will continue right where Bofuri Season 1 Episode 12 left off as it seems that Maple had made a considerable improvement in her powers. So let us take a quick recap of episode 12 to see how things could continue on in Season 2
Bofuri Season 1 Episode 12 Recap
Brought down to minimal health, Maple uses a risky counter move to deal with Payne’s damage and send it back at him. Payne manages to withstand the attack, forcing Maple to bring out her Atrocity form to defeat him and the rest of Holy Sword. With all their trump cards out in the open, Maple makes use of her Atrocity form to help her team eliminate other guilds to prevent the bigger guilds from gaining more orbs, assisting the Flame Emperors to achieve that goal, prompting other guilds to do the same. As the event comes to an end with Maple Tree in third place, after the destruction of all the other guilds the event was closed 2 days early. The admins decide to leave Maple alone as she has drawn many new players into the game and many are going to try to be the first to beat her. Maple invites both Holy Sword and the Flame Emperors to join everyone for a celebration and watch the highlights of the event as most of them stars Maple and Maple Tree.

The anime is based on the light novel series of the same name and had made tremendous progress lately saw its sales skyrocketing. Another thing that will speed up the return of Bofuri to the screens is its demand and that it still has a lot of content that Season 2 can be derived from. If one could look at the content already adapted so far, only four out of nine volumes have been adapted. So the anime hasn’t even covered half of the Manga content so there is still much more to come.
What Will Happen In Bofuri Season 2?
Bofuri Season 2 will continue the anime and have Maple, who is known by her truer name as Kaede Honjo and Sally: Risa Shiramine take on monsters of the game on a much larger scale than before. This time they will also have to deal with the game bugs and also make new friendships. At the end of Season 1, they both had defeated the two Major guilds and Maple Tree guild had received a lot of respect because of this. So Maple also got the chance to spend the time with the master of each of those guilds.
Maple will also go on an adventure with these guild maters on the next level of New World Online. Level 6 of the game will contain more terrifying areas where demons roam around. As she works together with these guild masters, Maple is reminded of an anomality she once experienced in the past. Just when she was collecting materials with Sally, she ended up triggering a game bug. The admins of the games though seem to have planned ahead for such situations as it has now become a battle of the minds between her and the admins.
When a new event comes up in the game, Maples wanted to go with two other friends but wanted Sally to stay behind this time. So she wanted her to enjoy the earlier levels. To make things much more interesting, she also chose a higher difficulty for this event.
The first season had built up the story up until the 4th volume of the novel. As this series currently has a total of nine volumes, then there is still much more content to be adapted. Although most of which is yet to be officially translated as for now it has no English publisher within the US. As usual, let us wait for 2020 fall to see how the Second Season will be taking the story forward.
