Publisher Kadokawa opened an official website for a television anime adaptation of Nene Yukimori's Kubo-san wa Mob wo Yurusanai (Kubo Won't Let Me Be Invisible) manga on Friday and revealed the main staff, cast, and a teaser visual (pictured).

Kana Hanazawa (5-toubun no Hanayome) and Kengo Kawanishi (3-gatsu no Lion) are starring as Nagisa Kubo and Junta Shiraishi, respectively.

Staff
Director: Kazuomi Koga (Kanojo, Okarishimasu, Ganbare Douki-chan)
Series Composition, Script: Yuuya Takahashi (Lupin III (2015), Selection Project)
Character Design: Yoshiko Saitou (Comic Girls, Mushoku Tensei: Isekai Ittara Honki Dasu sub-character design)
Studio: Pine Jam

Yukimori began serializing the romantic comedy manga in Young Jump magazine in October 2019. Shueisha shipped the eighth volume on February 23.

VIZ Media licensed the manga in English on October 9 and released the first volume on May 3, with the second volume scheduled to ship on July 5. The series is also simulpublished in English and Spanish on the Manga Plus and VIZ Media's Shonen Jump website.

Synopsis
High school student Junta Shiraishi has a simple goal—to live a fulfilling youth. However, achieving this goal appears to be harder than expected, as everyone in his surroundings often fails to notice him due to his lack of presence. In fact, Shiraishi's lack of presence is so severe that people think his seat in class is always empty, and mistakenly assume that he often skips school. There is even a weird rumor spreading around in class, claiming that those who successfully spot Shiraishi will be blessed with good fortune for the day.

So far, the only person who notices his existence is Nagisa Kubo, the girl seated next to him. Unfortunately for him though, Kubo likes to tease him on a daily basis and often puts him into unprecedented and nerve-wracking situations. However, as Kubo's playful antics continue to involve the reluctant Shiraishi, he may soon discover that his youth might not be as boring as he initially thought. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Teasing gang 4th member is here.
Good staff, decent studio and perfect cast.
The KV look pretty close to the manga art as well.
I have high hope for this adaptation.

HanaKana voicing Kubo san will be absolutely amazing. She suits her character so well. Can't wait to see the anime.

This is the same soft-dom-fetish garbage as the forehead child show. Repetitive, generic, pass.

The premise is interesting for horror or psychological stories but nah we're gonna stay with comedy about loner boy + waifu formula.

As a romcom lover, to think I missed this one. lol
It's not that I dislike this genre but... to add unnecessary fan services to/in/for heroines
and ultimately destroys her character and personality; their purity tarnished because of it,
is the only thing I hope to not happen to them. For that sole purity is my fan service.

I always hear KanaHana as Kubo when I was reading the manga and the casting was spot on. Here's an audio work of this series as a sample for this. It's in ASMR style so a warning to those not used to binaural sounds. Also a bit of story spoiler as this narrates a manga chapter scenario.

Never read it, but it seemed like one of those manga where it was only a matter of time. I’ll check it out when it drops.

Hanazawa Kana voicing the main isn't something we see very often nowadays, so good thing this adaptation is coming.

The synopsis is kinda misleading tbh there’s not a ton of teasing past the first couple chapters of the manga. Sweet story, great read.

Let's go! This'll be my first adaptation for a manga I'm already reading and it was literally two days ago when I thought that it should definitely get an adaptation.

Now I just need Oshi no Ko

After reading synopsis i think the story is heavily influenced by "teasing master takagi-san ".

Ah someone already deciding that is trash without actually watching the show, i guess you never heard the saying, don't judge a book by its cover.

Well well, finally the day has come with Kubo getting an anime adaptation.

HanaKana is back being a main female MC, and Kubo's character is SOOO gonna fit her character well, I'm just awaiting and anticipating with high expectations.

Oh no.

Luckily there's good VAs and plot seems nice. Studio doesn't make up the plot this time...


There was once a signature here.
Apparently advicing people to not act in a way that would get them insulted is an insult itself. We truly live in a society.
That said, don't @ or quote me. I won't be notified of your heroic try. You can celebrate my greatness by commenting on my profile, though. Love ya all.

The Manga is wholesome, so happy the Manga is getting an Anime plus Kana Hanazawa is perfect for Nagisa Kubo 😍

It is true that sometimes shows are not as they appear on the surface. It is a possibility with all works of media, even this one, to exceed expectations.

But with that said, why should I not judge a book by it's cover? I don't see anything suggesting this "book" won't be exactly what it looks like on the "cover."

Arbitrarily assuming this will be something totally different to what it appears as on the surface is unjustifiable. That would be just blindly hoping it'll be different, with no reason why.
