Upcoming adaptation of VRMMORPG isekai fantasy light novel series is animated by EMT Squared
Some quick news to give fans of the ursine persuasion some paws for consideration: a new key visual (below) has been published for Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear, an upcoming TV anime based on the series of VRMMORPG / isekai fantasy light novels written by Kumanano and illustrated by 029 about a young lady who ends up transported to a world resembling her favorite video game while wearing a set of super-powered bear pajamas.
The original Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear light novels are published in Japan by Shufu to Seikatsu-sha, and an English language version of the series is also being published by Seven Seas Entertainment, who describe the story as follows:
Fifteen-year-old Yuna prefers staying home and obsessively playing her favorite VRMMO to doing anything else, including going to school. When a strange new update gives her a one-of-a-kind bear outfit that comes with overpowered abilities, Yuna is torn: the outfit is unbearably cute, but too embarrassing to wear in-game. But then she suddenly finds herself transported to a world like the game, facing down monsters and magic for real, and the bear suit becomes the best weapon she has!
The Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear TV anime is directed by Yuu Nobuta and features animation production by EMT Squared. The release date for the series has not yet been revealed.
