Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear Season 2 has been renewed with a title change!
Isekai animes are all about reincarnations, whether slime, sword, assassins, or overpowered mages who get transported into a fantasy world brimming with adventures.
While one might wonder what other reincarnations are possible, writer Kumanano comes with a Bear reincarnation outfit for his protagonist in the light novel series titled Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear.
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear follows the story of Yuna, a carefree 15-year-old NEET who spends most of her day playing her favorite FPV World Fantasy Online game. Although young and lazy, Yuna is too bright for her age as she makes money through the stock market, contributing to her hikikomori life.
Her independent lifestyle reaffirms her belief in not requiring any friends and her dislike for outgoing people.
Yuna receives a bear costume from the game s’ admin as a gift corresponding to her total hours of gameplay, which she immediately finds embarrassing.
She accepts the gift from the admin and gets transported into a fantasy gaming world that has no point in returning to the real world.
She shockingly finds out her level has reset to the beginning and starts to think it is an in-game bug.
The game s’ admin not only turns out to be God but also informs Yuna that the bear costume will increase her in-game stats and make her character powerful.
Trapped and unable to log out, Yuna decides to explore this new world wherein she gets attacked by a wolf. In trying to save herself, Yuna also saves a 10-year-old girl called Fina.
Yuna is called into action once again as she saves Fina after being attacked by a tiger wolf. Fina takes Yuna to Crimonia City, where the latter stands out due to her overpowered bear outfit as people start calling her “Bloody Bear.”
How Yuna, who was once a loner with no friends, is now an adventurer taking up this new role is the show’s central plot.
