Junta Shiraishi is a high school student with one simple goal—to enjoy his youth. However, achieving this goal is not so straightforward since Shiraishi is effectively invisible to his peers; even his teachers routinely fail to notice his presence. In fact, there is a rumor circulating that whoever manages to spot him will receive good luck.

But there is one person who notices Shiraishi's presence without fail. Seated right next to him, Nagisa Kubo is determined not to let him quietly fade into the background. Unfortunately for him, this means that Shiraishi finds himself in some peculiar situations, all orchestrated by Kubo. Despite this, Kubo's playful antics might just be the catalyst needed to spark the thrilling youth that Shiraishi longs for.

Romance stories are a dime a dozen, inflicted with the ever-so-overdone tropes of rom-coms alike, that hearken one to just say that "if you've seen one, you've seen them all", and that is a fact wherever one goes. So then, what makes mangaka Nene Yukimori's Kubo-san wa Mob wo Yurusanai a.k.a Kubo Won't Let Me Be Invisible, which the manga has recently seen its "much-needed" closure, stand out among the rest of the rom-com pack?

I'm going to tell a harsh truth here: people come in all kinds of conditions, the obvious, the not-so-obvious, you name it, you probably missed out on some things that just ...

Mixed Feelings
Sometimes the word for a show like this can be just one word. "Fine". Sometimes it's nice to have something fine. There are lots of wholesome romantic comedies that all feel the same and this one rose a bit above the chaff of the others. For me, it's the art style, the music, and the two leads' chemistry. But still, by the end, it runs its course like every other and maybe overstays its welcome. Oddly enough the delay in production gave me just enough time to want to return to it. Halfway through you think "can you get much else new from these characters? ...

I have never seen a show so uninterested in itself. Like genuinely this show is so unenergetic. Like with most shitty anime rom coms, the issue is it’s too energetic and it gets annoying. But this shit had me dozing off. Like Kubo is supposed to be this tease who messes with the protagonist, the cheeky one y'know? But even she seems sleepy. I don’t know if it’s just the acting or what but everyone sounds so bored. This is the most white bread anime I’ve ever seen. I’m not even sure if I finished it, not gonna lie. There was a weird hiatus when ...
