What is the plot of Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible?
The story centers on a first-year high school student, Junta Shiraishi, who has an unusual characteristic that no one can imitate. Even if Junta is standing right next to someone they can fail to notice him due to him being so quiet and ordinary. His teachers also have the tendency to mark him as “absent” even if he’s sitting at a desk right in front of them!
Shiraishi begins to feel like he’s some kind of “mob” character from in a video game but in real life. In other words, he feels invisible. Shiraishi tries not to let this get to him and prepares to live a very boring high school life. However, as fate would have it, the girl who sits next to him in class is not only very beautiful but also the one person who appears to be able to notice his presence.
Kubo decides to tease Junta by daring him to do wild things that will make him stand out, and that would get any ordinary classmate in a lot of trouble. Later, she boldly declares that she is his “heroine” due to the fact she’s the only one that can notice him. If Nagisa Kubo is the heroine of this story, Junta is still just a mob though. But will opposites attract in this romantic comedy?
