The first promotional video has been released for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Nene Yukimori's romcom manga series Kubo Won't Let Me Be Invisible. The anime is produced by studio PINE JAM and is slated to air in 2023.
The story features ordinary, easy-to-ignore high school student Junta Shiraishi (CV: Kengo Kawanishi) who is treated like a video game mob character by his teachers and peers. But this changes after the gorgeous Nagisa Kubo (CV: Kana Hanazawa) starts paying attention to him.
