Summary of “Kubo won’t let me be invisible”
Junta Shiraishi is a high school student who has a pretty simple goal, to live a fulfilling youth and make friends. However, this task seems to be harder than expected because everyone around him doesn’t notice him due to his lack of presence. His presence is so low that his peers think that his seat is always empty. They and the teacher often presume that he often skips school. There is a rumor spreading around in class that whoever is able to successfully spot Shiraishi will be blessed with good fortune and luck for the day.
The only person who notices him in the class is Nagisa Kubo, the girl who sits next to him. Nagisa often teases him and puts him in nerve-wracking situations. However, Nagisa’s playful behavior continues to involveShiraishi, and he soon discovers that his youth isn’t that useless. He slowly makes friends. Eventually, he also realizes that a person can become special to someone, but it might be a little too early to call this “love.” This story is just a few steps away from being called a romantic comedy. For now, it’s a sweet comedy where a high school’s background character becomes visible in class! The slice of life and the comedy is really cute, along with the chemistry of the characters.
