The Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible manga
The Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible anime is inspired by the eponymous ongoing manga series by Nene Yukimori that began in October 2019. The manga is serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine and published under the Young Jump Comics label. As of May 2022, the individual chapters have been collected into nine tankōbon volumes.
Viz Media has licensed the series for English publication. The English manga is up to Volume 2, with Volume 3 scheduled to be released on September 6, 2022.
Kubo-san wa Mobu o Yurusanai centers on first-year high school student Junta Shiraishi, who is so quiet that he’s almost invisible. More precisely, neither his teachers nor his classmates notice him at all! Except for his classmate Nagisa Kubo, that is.
As fate would have it, Kubo is rather outgoing and is dead set on making Junta do all kinds of things that will make him stand out.
The manga being a rom-com, the two will slowly start developing a deeper relationship.
Unlike other popular manga following a similar plot, Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible falls under the seinen genre and targets young adult audiences. Stay tuned for future updates!
