The story of Itai no wa Iya nanode Bougyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu. is set in the world of a virtual reality MMO called “NewWorld Online.” The protagonist, Maple (real name: Kaede Honjou), is a newbie when it comes to games, so she allocates all of her ability points into defense power (VIT). As a result, Maple is ponderously slow, she can’t use magic, and she can be kicked around even by rabbits, but she feels no pain and takes zero damage. Because of her intense focus on VIT, Maple acquires the “Absolute Defense” skill and overcomes all obstacles with her “Lethal Poison” skill, and so she goes on fun, stress-free adventures with her friends as a “Mobile Fortress-type Rookie”.
