Bofuri Season 2: Mid-Season Review

Back when the first season of Bofuri came out, I don’t think anyone expected it to cause as much of a rumble as it did. I know it was mostly because of the memes but, you know, a loli tank owning the entire game with ease was something we didn’t expect. Bofuri Season 2 follows the exact same principle. Just that now we have more broken characters!

So welcome back to another one of my mid-season reviews! Today let’s talk about Bofuri Season 2! In short, you know, it basically more Bofuri. Nothing more, nothing less. If you liked the first season, you will like this season as well. It is as simple as that. But, there are some things I’d like to talk about in detail. So let’s get started.

What do I think about Bofuri Season 2 so far?

So right off the bat, I like that the stakes of this season are higher. It is far more common in this season to see Maple struggling, only to unlock some weird a$$ ability again. My one complaint from the last season was that she didn’t mix up her different abilities and didn’t use them nearly as often. But, in this season, I love that she often mixes her mecha canons with that angle mode. That angle mode is a rather strong AoE defense ability so it is very common to see Maple in that form this season. I love that, shows that she’s slowly learning more about the game.

Another thing I liked about this season is that we got more time with the rival guild leaders, Payne and Mii. Mii especially had a rather unexpected character moment with Maple; they end up forming an unlikely friendship. I love Kensho Ono so I look forward to Payne’s appearance every time. I feel like Chrome and Iz are more sidelined this time, focusing more on Kasumi and the twins (and of course, Maple and Sally). But, maybe they’ll get some spotlight later on, who knows?

Don’t ask… It is just Maple being Maple.

As for my complaints, I think we are going through areas or floors a little too fast. In season 1, floors were cleared gradually so floor bosses had some real impact, more than that, the floors were more fleshed out. In this season, I think the only floor fleshed out like that is the ghost-themed one. We moved through floors way too quickly this season. That sort of takes away from the feel of the floor and the story. A minor complaint I know but, I wish there was some more time spent on each floor.

Conclusion

Nothing much else to say here. Again, Bofuri Season 2 is just more of Bofuri. If you liked season 1, you will like season 2. As things stand right now, Bofuri Season 2 gets a solid 7/10 from me. Really good anime to turn off your brain and vibe to. But well, those were my thoughts and opinions. Let me know yours in the comments. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!
