Synopsis for 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 in his surroundings often doesn’t notice 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 skips class. There is even a strange rumor going around the class that those who manage to see Shiraishi will be blessed with good fortune for that day.
Until now, the only person who is aware of his existence is Nagisa Kubo, the girl sitting next to him. However, unfortunately for him, Kubo likes to tease him on a daily basis and often puts him in unprecedented and distressing situations. However, as Kubo’s antics continue to involve the reluctant Shiraishi, he may soon discover that his youth might not be as boring as he initially thought.
