Shuukan Young Jump’s rom-com series Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible is finally getting an English manga release. The series was available as a simulpub on Viz’s Manga Plus app. But now fans can add the first volume to their collection!

The first volume is available now from Viz Media’s website and can be purchased digitally or in paperback from retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Fans can also pre-order the second volume, which will be released on July 5, 2022.

Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible — or Kubo-san wa Mob wo Yurusanai in Japanese — was created by mangaka Nene Yukimori back in 2019 and published in Shuukan Young Jump, a weekly manga publication aimed at older teen and adult audiences directs.

Young Jump is currently publishing other works such as Kaguya-sama: Love Is War – with a popular anime currently airing its second season – Terra Formars and Kingdom which has been running since 2006.

What is “Kubo Won’t Make Me Invisible” about?

He is invisible to most of Junta Shiraishi’s classmates. His teacher leaves assignments on his desk assuming he is absent. His conspecifics often accidentally sit on him without noticing him beforehand. And when he’s awarded for perfect attendance, everyone scratches their heads.

The only person who notices him is Nagisa Kubo, a girl in his class, who seems to notice everything he does, including things he looks at on his phone. Aware of her classmate’s inability to notice Shiraishi, Kubo is perplexed. She spurs him on to make himself known, to which Shiraishi nervously agrees. Being invisible for so long, he doesn’t know how to handle the attention.

In a slice-of-life format, the series follows the two: shy, confident Shiraishi and bubbly, extrovert Kubo. Determined to help Shiraishi be noticed by his class, Kubo resorts to humorous antics to change his role from a background mob character to the main protagonist.

Will there be an anime adaptation of Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible?

Recently it has been speculated that Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible will get an anime adaptation. So far, no studio has confirmed the rumor. And the website supposedly bought by the production team remains unused.

On the one hand, a successful anime would be Kubo-san wa Mob wo Yurusanai considering how popular its Young Jump colleague Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is, or even Aharen-san wa Hakarenai, which has similar story beats. There’s no shortage of rom-com anime, and Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible would be a great addition.

With that in mind, the source cited by many on Twitter is a “reliable Weibo user” who has as much credibility as “my friend told me”. For now, it’s best to take any speculation with a grain of salt. Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible would certainly make a fun anime, but will the studios agree? That remains to be seen.
