The hilariously-awkward adolescent romantic comedy series Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible has also fallen prey to the ongoing pandemic situation. For those who loved the manga and were eagerly awaiting the series, this is certainly heartbreaking.
On Tuesday, the official website and Twitter account for the anime series revealed that the staff will postpone Episode 7 and later episodes. The staff explained that COVID-19 had affected their production schedule, which has led to this decision.
The broadcast will resume from Episode 1 in April 2023.
Due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection, we have decided to postpone the broadcast and distribution from episode 7 onwards.
We are very sorry to all of you who are looking forward to the broadcast.
Please see below for details.
