On Thursday, Kadokawa released the second promotional video for the upcoming anime series, revealing a few more cast members and staff. The high-school romcom series will premiere on January 10, 2023 on AT-X, BS11, Tokyo MX, and MBS.

Romcoms are a great way to unwind, and “Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible” does show some promise. After all, seeing Junta being forced to come out of his “invisible shell” would lead to hilarious situations, wouldn’t it?
About Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible
Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible is a manga by Nene Yukimori. It was first launched in the Weekly Young Jump magazine in October 2019. As of December 2022, eleven volumes have been released.

Kubo loves to tease him and occasionally makes him do weird things in class just to see if anyone would notice.
