Synopsis of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear
Yuna, a fifteen-year-old girl, starts playing her first VRMMO game. She has raised billions of yen in shares, and is confined to home to play without going to school. Today, a major update has hit the game and she gets a super rare, non-transferable bear costume.
But using it is so embarrassing that you don’t dare to equip it, it doesn’t even help the fact that it’s just a game. Also, when you answer the satisfaction survey about the new update and restart the game, she discovers that she is in a strange forest and is wearing the suit.
Where I am? A message from God? A different world? If she is wearing the bear suit (which is a very powerful item) it means that she is invincible, but if she takes it off she is just a normal girl. The adventure that Yuna never asked for has just begun!
