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.

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.

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]

Glad to see this got an adaptation. It is a pretty decent story. Can't wait to see Nagisa's sister.
Hanakana?... She's great, but kinda onee-san type now.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Pine Jam means easy watch but honestly, DIY is much more interesting.

May 13, 2022 1:52 PM by SaidoKyarakuta

Let’s go i’ve only read a bit quite a while ago but I remember that it was super wholesome.

May 13, 2022 1:26 PM by Vultouri

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.
