According to Seven Seas Synopsis:
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!
Kumanano began to serialize the ongoing story on the website of Shōsetsuka ni Narō (Let’s Become Novelists) in 2014. Shufu to Seikatsu Sha started publishing the story in print with art by 029 in May 2015, and on 22 May 2020, the company released the 15th edition.
