What is Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible About?
This high school rom-com takes you into the life of Junta Shiraishi, a very average student with a simple dream – to make the most of his youth. As it happens to be, most of the people around him in school are eluded to his presence as he is not a very noticeable person. His apparent invisibility goes to the extent where most people believe his seat in the classroom remains empty and that he does not reach school on most days.
Some people also tend to believe that spotting Junta will lead to a good day as the phenomenon seems very rare. The only person who seems to notice his existence is Nagisa Kubo, a girl who is usually seated next to him in class. As it happens, she consistently puts him in unexpected situations as she enjoys teasing him. Junta realizes quickly enough that his high school life is going to be much more eventful than he anticipated.
