Just as I said in my last article, I love rom-coms. As a loner in real life, rom-coms give me a warm tingly feeling on the inside that real life never would. (I wish that statement was a joke but it is not). So Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible was always on my list and to be honest, I did have fun watching it.
Now, the series is finally coming to an end after the delay it suffered in the winter season. Episode 10 came out recently and it is finally time to talk about it.
So welcome back to another one of my reviews. Today we are taking a look at Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible. So let’s get into it!
The plot is your usual ‘introvert meets extrovert’ pattern. And then the extrovert helps the introvert make friends and stuff. The difference here is that Shiraishi isn’t an introvert by choice, others literally cannot see him lol. Yes, he’s basically like John Cena but in anime. Jokes aside, this adds an interesting layer to the anime as most people can’t see Shiraishi. This makes for some pretty funny moments indeed.
While the plot is mostly fine, it suffers from a bit of uneven pacing. At times, things are progressing well and you can’t wait to see the next episode. But at times, things drag to a halt and the show starts feeling like a complete slog to watch. This becomes more apparent on subsequent watches.
Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible has some pretty good character writing. It goes for quality over quantity approach, mainly focusing on the main duo and it works wonders for the show. Their relationship is built pretty well from the ground up. I wish Shiraishi got a little more character development though. Cause Nagisa gets a decent amount of character development throughout the series. The series also has some pretty memorable side characters like Nagisa’s sister.
