Bear witness to the TV anime when it broadcasts from October 2020
After so many sweet visuals and trailers for the upcoming isekai fantasy TV anime Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear, be shocked (kuma shock!) by the new visual released on August 9, showing the main characters in front a beary scary shadowy figure.
The original Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear light novels, written by Kumanano and illustrated by 029, are published in Japan by Shufu to Seikatsu-sha, with an English language version of the series being published by Seven Seas Entertainment, who describes 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!
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear is directed by Yuu Nobuta and features animation production by EMT Squared. The series is scheduled to begin bearcasting in Japan in October of 2020.
