After receiving an invitation from her friend Risa Shiromine, Kaede Honjou begins playing the VRMMO game New World Online as the character Maple. Lacking knowledge of the game, she allocates all her status points to defense. As a result, her movements are slow, she cannot use magic, and even gets attacked by the rabbits. However, she obtains a skill called "Absolute Defense" due to maxing out her vitality points, and a counter skill that kills in a single hit. A "mobile fortress style" novice with a poisonous skill that makes all attacks invalid and overrides all obstacles, she goes off to adventures, disregarding her irregularities. (Source: MAL News)

Encoder's Notes

LostYears is waiting for MapleClub and since MapleClub itself is stalled at episode 7, both wont probably be having update anytime soon.
And I am waiting for a better fansub to come out for BD encode. Will just do it with HS if no fansub does it after waiting for some time.

OP1: “Kyuukyoku Unbalance! (究極アンバランス!)” by Junjou no Afilia
ED1: “Play the world” by Rico Sasaki


This anime is pushing very controversial ideas. An online game without micotransactions? Legendary drops on first try? Can you believe that?


You know it’s a Facebook headset since it scans your IRL appearance and automatically applies to the avatar without your consent.


Rising of the Shield Moe


Really fun if you just ignore the very obvious lack of logic in the game.


Shield girl has max social skills

Ashe ✿

Its like sword art.. but you can log out and people lead healthy lives… and its not edgy… so not really like sword art


Surprisingly pretty and well put together. The script is weaker, but fans of the genre should still find something enjoyable.
