Plot Concept: Yuna’s not your typical 15-year-old. First, she’s crazy rich from playing the stock market. Second, she’s a recluse obsessed with a VRMMO game, and she’s really good at that too.
Her life is pretty much perfect—until she wakes up one day inside the game she loves and back at level one. She has to start over, but this time, she has a powerful bear suit that’s guaranteed to take her places!
