Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible previously revealed a key visual. 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!
