Aired in the winter of 2020, the anime “I don’t want to be in pain, so I’d like to take my defensive skills to the extreme. was quickly followed by a sequel production.
At the end of the last episode, the title logo shield was set to increase from one to two, so it is believed that a second season had already been decided during the broadcast.
Therefore, it may possibly be split into two cool installments, but in any case, it has definitely become a popular enough work to do a second season, and the anime adaptation can be considered a huge success.
Now, let’s look back briefly at the road to its anime adaptation.
The original story of Bakufuri is a web novel that Yumikan-sensei had posted on Becoming a Novelist.
The submissions began in May 2016, and after receiving positive feedback, it was decided to turn it into a book.
In September 2017, “Kanokon” and “Haiyore! The first volume is published from Kadokawa Books, and is illustrated by Mr. Foxxin, who is known for “Nyaruko-san”. It has been released.
The book version was also very popular, and it was reprinted just three days after its release.
The designs of Maple, Sally, and other characters created by Foxin-sensei were also well-received, and Bofuri, who became a fish out of water, became an instant hit.
The following year in 2018, Monthly Comp Ace started a series of comic book adaptations drawn by Oimoto Jiro-sensei.
This comic version was also very popular, and immediately after the serialization started, all volumes of the original work were reprinted, and the number of views on Narrow was over 50 million page views, and through the synergistic effect, we succeeded in increasing the number of fans.
And in December of the same year, it was announced by KADOKAWA that they were planning to make it into an anime.
It is rare in recent years that an anime adaptation was announced at the stage of 250,000 copies in total for the series, so the momentum must have been tremendous.

The Anti-Preflection anime that started airing in January 2020 was supported by many people, with many anime fans muttering their impressions on social media and getting very excited about it.
Due to the effect of this anime broadcast, sales of both the original and the comic version have increased significantly, and as of April 2020, the series’ total sales have reached 700,000 copies.
The number of views on Narrow has exceeded 140 million PV and is still growing.
The first volume of the disc sold about 3,000 copies, which was a decent result, but what should be noted is the number of views on the Chinese video sharing site Bilibiri Video.
It became the fastest ever to break 100 million views, and broke 140 million views in just 4 months.
It is clear that the film has been received quite well overseas.
The background to this work’s success is thought to be due to the fact that it pioneered the new genre of “kirara-kei narrows” in the midst of a wave of narou anime.
The main character was a loose female maple like the main character of the Kirara series, which made it popular among both the “Let’s go” and “Kirara” series fans.
In addition, the weaknesses of the “Let’s face it, a warrior protagonist is annoying” and “the story doesn’t go anywhere” of the Kirara series have been alleviated, so the work was watched with a fresh perspective.
