Fifteen-year-old Yuna prefers staying home and obsessively playing her favorite VRMMO game to doing anything else, including going to school. When a strange new update gives her a one-of-a-kind bear outfit that comes with overpowered abilities, Yuna is torn: the outfit is unbearably cute, but too embarrassing to wear in-game. But then she suddenly finds herself transported into the world of the game, facing down monsters and magic for real, and the bear suit becomes the best weapon she has!

Awww! How cute! The over-powered isekai protagonist is in a bear onesie with bear mittens and uses bear-shaped magic. And though fe's embearrassed by feir outfit, fe continues to bear with it because it grants fem cheat-level abilities--persevering through it all with a deadpan stare. Even though fe's leagues above most of feir foes, I do appreciate how some of feir enemies--like the goblin king and black viper--still require fem to strategize and put in actual effort in order to defeat them. I really feel drawn to Yuna as a character; fe soothes me. (The other characters are meh though) After arriving in this new world based on a game, Yuna joins the adventurer guild and settles into the community. Fe gains the recognition of the other adventurers and town leaders because of feir feats. Fe becomes a pillar in the community, helping strengthen the economy and providing aide for the vulnerable. All of this is pretty stock material for isekai stories. Even the idea of helping the orphans is something that I've seen several times. I assume orphans are specifically chosen because seeing kids in need pulls on peoples' heartstrings and because, unlike with a suffering adult, when a child suffers it's seen as not feir own fault, but the fault of the neglectful adults around fem. It's ironic then that the solution is to teach the orphans how to help themselves, to provide jobs for them (rather than just providing non-neglectful care for them). It's supposed to be empowering, but it just looks like child labor to me. [Reviewed at chapter 35]
An isekai about a girl gamer, who is transported to another world with special "bear" equipment and skills. The bear ... it's cute and it's funny ... and literally everywhere. She gets bonus from the bear costume. Even if the thing just looks like a bear it gets extra HP and damage. This includes skills such as fireball in a shape of a cute bear head. It’s all about adventures, the main heroine raising in the fame as adventurer “the bloody bear”. It reminds me the slime series (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) in its somewhat light-hearted approached toward game-like fantasy isekai. Even the structure is similar with episodic adventures that built as side-effect into overarching story. The main protagonist is OP thanks to all "bear" equipment. The art is average. It’s nothing extraordinary, but it isn’t lazy either. It’s very shounen like. I like it. The style is fluid depending on the situation – dramatic action vs comical scenes. Japanese difficulty: 5/10 (see my profile description for difficulty scoring) No furigana by the default. However vocabulary and grammar is not that difficult … it’s manga therefore mostly consisting of dialogue. Overall it’s a fun manga, I would recommend it. note: This review is written after reading 2 volumes.
