Hey there, anime fans! Are you excited about the return of Kubo-san wa Mob wo Yurusanai? Well, I’ve got some great news for you. The anime, based on the manga by Nene Yukimori, is set to air its seventh episode on May 16th in Japan and on streaming platforms worldwide.

However, some of you might be wondering why the series had been on hiatus since the winter 2023 season after the sixth episode aired. Well, the production was suspended due to COVID-19-related issues. Although the seventh episode marks the “true resumption of the anime adaptation,” it is not yet clear if these problems have been resolved.

Kubo-san wa Mob wo Yurusanai is distributed in the West by the HIDIVE platform and has been confirmed for a total of twelve episodes.

The author also wrote the manga Ningen ni Koi shita Oni wa Warau in Comic Ruelle from August 2016 to December 2018.

Synopsis of Kubo-san wa Mob wo Yurusanai

High school student Junta Shiraishi has a simple goal: to live a fulfilling youth. However, achieving this goal seems to be more difficult than expected, as everyone around him often takes no notice of him due to his lack of presence. In fact, Shiraishi’s lack of presence is so severe that people believe that his seat in his class is always empty, and mistakenly assume that he often misses class. There is even a strange rumor spreading through the class, that those who manage to see Shiraishi will be blessed with good fortune for that day.

So far, the only person who notices his existence is Nagisa Kubo, the girl sitting next to him. Unfortunately for him though, Kubo likes to make fun of him on a daily basis and often puts him in unusual and harrowing situations. However, as Kubo’s antics continue to involve the reluctant Shiraishi, he may soon discover that his youth might not be as dull as he initially thought.

So, mark your calendars for May 16th and get ready to catch the latest episode of Kubo-san wa Mob wo Yurusanai!
