The voices of Kubo and Shiraishi were also heard for the first time
The adolescent teasing adventures of Kubo and Shiraishi in the TV anime adaptation of Nene Yukimori's Kubo Won't Let Me Be Invisible manga will begin in 2023, the first trailer for the series revealed today. The trailer was also the first time we get to hear the lead character's voices with Kana Hanazawa as Nagisa Kubo and Kengo Kawanishi as Junta Shiraishi.
Kubo Won't Let Me Be Invisible is being directed by Kazuomi Koga (Rent-a-Girlfriend) at studio PINE JAM (Kageki Shojo!!), with series composition by Yuya Takahashi (Selection Project) and character designs by Yoshiko Saito (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation animation director). Shueisha publishes the manga's official English and Spanish versions on MANGA Plus, describing the series as such:
First year high schooler Junta Shiraishi is a mob character who goes unnoticed even when he's standing right next to you. But his classmate, "heroine-level beauty" Kubo, always notices him and is there to tease him. Anyone can become special to someone, but it might be a little too early to call these feelings "love." Perhaps this story is still two-steps from being a romantic comedy--let's call it a sweet comedy where a background character becomes visible!
