With the release of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear Episode 3 right around the corner, it’s best to recap what all has happened in the anime series so far. So far, two episodes have been released, and despite a good story and animation, there has been some confusion in the story’s timeline, especially for the Anime Viewers only. The problem emerged with the release of episode 2, which in hindsight, should be considered the first episode of the story, while the first released episode feels like a filler of sorts.
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear Episode 2: Bear, Meets A Little Girl | Recap
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear Episode 2: “Bear, Meets A Little Girl” revolves around the beginning of the story as to how Yuna actually obtained the overpowered Bear Outfit. Unlike the first episode, which just jumped into the story without any context as to who or what is happening, Episode 2 had a much nicer feel to it. Although initially, most people thought the anime was a VMMORPG, in reality, it’s an Isekai Anime.
The Episode starts off with Yuna logging into the game “World Fantasy Online” and was greeted with a reward for playing the game for a long time. She opens a chest to discover she has obtained a cute Bear onesie outfit that has abnormally strong stat boosts. She likes the stat boosts but considers the outfit itself extremely embarrassing and decides to put it away for now. After a short survey from the game, she finally gets to play the game but is greeted with yet another surprise. She has been Isekai’d into the VMMORPG while wearing the Bear Onesie.
She saves a little girl named Fina, who, by the way, is an absolute bundle of wholesomeness, by taking down the wolf that was about to attack her. In return for saving her life, Fina offers to dismantle the wolf so she could give the raw materials to Yuna and also guide her back to the town. Despite being thrown into a completely new environment and for unknown reasons, Yuna is calm and laid back about the whole situation, which kinda feels weird. Her attitude towards the surprising turn of events is so easy going that it’s hard for the viewers to actually feel any kind of excitement.
Once they arrive in the town, they go to sell off the newly obtained raw materials, and Yuna also treats Fina to a meal. Fina explains how she lives with her younger sister and sick mother and is extremely poor; hence she works extremely hard to provide for her family. The following day, Yuna tests her powers out and realizes that she is already growing stronger. Yuna then decides to become an adventurer and hunt monsters, and on one such trip comes across a tiger wolf who was about to attack Fina. Yuna then asks Fina to stop going into the forest alone and instead help her dismantle the monsters she’s defeated for money.
