Anime adaptation of Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible announced on Wednesday a new visual and two additional cast members. Ito Miku and Sora Amamiya are joining the cast as Akina Kubo and Saki Kubo respectively. The previously announced cast includes Kana Hanazawa as Nagisa Kubo and Kengo Kawanishi as Junta Shiraishi. The anime is slated to air in January 2023.
Studio PINE JAM is producing the series with Kazuomi Koga as the director. Yuya Takahashi supervises the series composition, while Yoshiko Sato is illustrating the character designs.
The anime is adapted from the manga series Kubo-san wa Mobu o Yurusanai (Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible) written and illustrated by Nene Yukimori. Shueisha is serializing the title since October 2019. Viz Media is publishing it in English, and they describe the story as:
When Kubo sits next to Shiraishi in their first year of high school, Shiraishi’s nonexistent social skills get a boost. Speaking up in class is only the beginning for Shiraishi—soon Kubo forces him to be noticed at school, at the bookstore, and all around town. Shiraishi’s once-lackluster life isn’t so dull anymore!
