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!

Disappointment.  That’s the best I can say for what had first been a curiosity in the anime world.  I was taken with the premise of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear.  In the end, I was taken. There is this weakness in the plot due to an annoying tendency in all the episodes, including the botched effort at the pilot program.  This is expressed in one word. U-N-S-C-A-T-H-E-D. Yuna is no Rocky Balboa who can take a beating, get up, and give the opponent a bit more than that right back at him.  The usual fight sequence has the obnoxious foe berate Yuna for that ridiculous costume with the black and white bear-head mittens then .... BOOOOOM ... one KO'd formerly obnoxious foe.  Even the battle with the black viper, Yuna has the commonsense to realize the huge snake's skin is impenetrable, call upon her ever increasing arsenal of built-in bear-themed weaponry, offer herself up as a meal, and blow-up the monster from the inside out.  And she comes out with nary a hint of digestive juice mucus on her.  Must be nice. It was one thing I always noticed in the Pretty Cure scripts.  The cures always had the time they had their girly stuffings beaten out of them, have them stagger back to their feet, refuse to lose, and happy endings ensued.  This stuff doesn't happen in Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear (and, on an unrelated note, why was I forced to type 'Kuma' three times?) and it gets powerfully boring after a while. The characters are rather shallow, seeing that their only reason for existence in their RPG realm is to make Yuna the super-amazing heroine in that totally idiotic bear suit.  Yuna is depicted as the one person on this planet that is ultimately qualified to go it alone ... and needs to learn the lesson to interact with people to achieve results that authentically matter.  This theme is the only redeeming quality to the whole series.  That, and it's family friendly with only the random scary monster popping in (and out, with a little [microscopic, really] bear power). As I write, I am still eagerly awaiting the next episode, where Yuna takes on a kraken.  If there is a knock-down drag-out battle between super bear-girl and super octopus, fine.  That's entertainment.  But if this is 'how to make Takoyaki in two easy steps,'  ...  there seems to be little time left in the season to prepare something else that would make for something that would awe and amaze. I can't help but pan this anime.  But I'd love to write an update in a few weeks giving K3 Bear the highest praises, if they get Yuna beat up a little en route to a smashing victory for the ursine species.  It would be a feat for EMT Squared to pull this off, but five stars is five stars. How's that for motivation?
