Crunchyroll describes the plot of In the Land of Leadale as follows:
Due to a terrible accident, Keina Kagami has to live on life support in order to survive. The only way for her to be free is within the VRMMORPG “Leadale.” One day, her life support stops functioning, and Keina loses her life. But when she wakes up, she finds herself in the world of Leadale 200 years in the future. She is now the half-elf Cayna, who possesses lost skills and OP statuses and becomes closer to the other inhabitants of this world. But among those inhabitants happen to be the “children” she made in character creation?! A very chill adventure filled with laughter and tears(?) about a girl who transferred into a game world and her very unique friends is about to begin!
