Both are fun light hearted animes about cute girls playing a MMO game, where they meet other players, played in tournament and just have fun playing the game.

I totally agree. At the beginning i didn't expect that the anime will be something that good but boy was i wrong. This just shows how overpowered people can be Maple doesn't take dmg but is slow as a turtle while LLENN is fast as fk and is rly hard for people to even hit her.

Both involve a female lead playing a VR MMO where they max an unorthodox stat and basically break the game. Both involve forming clans, participating in tourneys, and exploiting game mechanics. Bofuri seems to have a much lighter tone (writing this with only a handful of episodes out) but both are pretty colorful and have their cute moments to them.

Both animes about the hidden potential of being a shield and defensive class hero in MMORPG's

As the title of both anime states though, one is a hero who is forced to be a shield and the othr is abut a noob who only doesn't want to get hurt so uses real world logic and maxes oout her defence.

A create cute anime about a girl who is not a gamer slowly falling in love with games through her own way.

Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

The year is 2022, and gamers have lined up on launch day for Sword Art Online, a hotly-anticipated MMORPG that lets players connect to an immersive virtual reality world with special helmets called Nerve Gear. Kirito is one such gamer who's eager to jump back into action, having spent a great deal of time as a beta tester, and quickly becomes friends with newbie warrior Klein. But soon, Sword Art Online's 10,000 players discover that not only are they unable to log out, the only way they can return to their physical bodies is by beating the 100-level tower's final boss - that is, if their HP doesn't drop to zero first, for death in the game means death in the real world. Now, with no one else to turn to, Kirito and the other participants must survive the game as best they can – some forming guilds, others ruthlessly leaving their peers behind, and many tragically falling by the wayside or to the merciless monsters populating the lands...

Both based on a virtual reality world where there are events and monsters to defeat! Fun to watch animes and great stories outside of the action.

It's just an amazing Isekai. It has sorta the same goofy style as this one. Just shows what happens when someone overpowered is released out in the wild.

One year after the SAO incident, Kirito is approached by Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications Department, Seijiro Kikuoka, with a request to enter another VRMMO called Gun Gale Online (GGO). Kikuoka informs Kirito that, “Players who are shot by a mysterious avatar with a jet black gun lose their lives even in the real world...” Unconvinced that the virtual world can affect the real world, Kirito logs on to GGO, wandering in an unfamiliar world in order to investigate the “Death Gun” incident. He is joined by a female sniper named Sinon who owns a gigantic “Hecate II” rifle. The two decide to enter the “Bullet of Bullets,” a large tournament to choose the most powerful gunner within the realm of GGO, in hopes of making direct contact with the mysterious avatar behind the “Death Gun”.
