The seasonal anime Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible will be delayed from the seventh episode onward due to a COVID-19 affecting members of the show’s staff.
The announcement was made on the official Twitter account for the series early on January 24, with the studio apologizing to fans for the delay.
Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible is an ongoing manga series which began in 2019. The series follows Junta Shiraishi, an unassuming young man in high school.
Shiraishi is content to live out his high school life peacefully, but things don’t go according to plan when his classmate Nagisa Kubo begins teasing him.
You can read a summary of the series from MyAnimeList below.
High school student Junta Shiraishi has a simple goal—to live a fulfilling youth. However, achieving this goal appears to be harder than expected, as everyone in his surroundings often fails to notice him due to his lack of presence. In fact, Shiraishi’s lack of presence is so severe that people think his seat in class is always empty, and mistakenly assume that he often skips school. There is even a weird rumor spreading around in class, claiming that those who successfully spot Shiraishi will be blessed with good fortune for the day.
So far, the only person who notices his existence is Nagisa Kubo, the girl seated next to him. Unfortunately for him though, Kubo likes to tease him on a daily basis and often puts him into unprecedented and nerve-wracking situations. However, as Kubo’s playful antics continue to involve the reluctant Shiraishi, he may soon discover that his youth might not be as boring as he initially thought.
The manga for Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible is published in English by VIZ. The Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible anime is available to watch now on HIDIVE.
