A new anime adaptation was announced last December based on the light novel series of the same name with Itai no wa Iya nano de Bōgyoryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu, which translates to All points are divided to VIT because a painful one isn’t liked. We had no details at the time but now the official site has opened and we got our first visual and promotional video. Shin Oonuma is directing with Mirai Minato based on the series composition by Fumihiko Shimo. Kazuya Hirata is handling the character designs with Silver Link working on the animation production.
The cast includes Kaede Hondo as Maple.
The original work from Yuumikan began in 2016 and has six volumes in print out as of this month. A manga spinoff was launched in the spring of 2018 in Comp Ace by Jiro Oimoto.

Plot Concept: The series focuses on Kaede Honjō, who is invited by her friend Risa Shiramine to play a virtual reality MMO game with her. While Kaede doesn’t dislike games, what she really, truly dislikes is being in pain. She creates a character named Maple, and decides to put all her points in VIT to minimize pain. As a result, she moves slowly, can’t use magic, and even a rabbit can get the best of her. But as it turns out, she acquires a skill known as “Absolute Defense” as a result of her pumping points into VIT, as well as a “Counter Skill” that works against special moves. Now, with her ability to nullify all damage, she goes on adventures.
