Earlier this year we got to check out the main cast and staff behind the upcoming anime adaptation of Nene Yukimori’s Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible manga. Now a 2023 release window has been revealed along with the very first trailer, so see what’s in store below, including our first sample of the character voices.
As previously reported, heroine Nagisa Kubo will be voiced by Kana Hanazawa (Ichika in The Quintessential Quintuplets), and the teased Junta Shiraishi will be voiced by Kengo Kawanishi (Gen in Dr. STONE).
Rent-a-Girlfriend director Kazuomi Koga is at the helm for this one, with Yuya Takahashi (Selection Project) on series composition and Yoshiko Saito (animation director on Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation) handling character designs at anime studio PINE JAM (Kageki Shojo!!).
The original manga is available on Shueisha’s MANGA Plus app, which sums up the story:
First year high schooler Junta Shiraishi is a mob character who goes unnoticed even when he’s standing right next to you. But his classmate, “heroine-level beauty” Kubo, always notices him and is there to tease him. Anyone can become special to someone, but it might be a little too early to call these feelings “love.” Perhaps this story is still two-steps from being a romantic comedy–let’s call it a sweet comedy where a background character becomes visible!
