Hanazawa’s single drops on February 1. Check out the delightful creditless OP movie:



Kana Hanazawa has previously performed theme songs for shows she’s voiced in, such as Ichika in The Quintessential Quintuplets, but always as an ensemble rather than a solo artist.  


Kubo Won’t Let Me Be Invisible is being directed by Kazuomi Koga (Rent-a-Girlfriend) at studio PINE JAM (Kageki Shojo!!), with series composition by Yuya Takahashi (Selection Project) and character designs by Yochiko Saito (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation animation director). The series premieres on January 10 with HIDIVE streaming it in English, describing the story of the anime as such:


Junta Shiraishi has just one goal: to experience youth to the fullest! But this is easier said than done. Junta is so socially invisible that people at school would swear he skipped class even when he’s sitting right behind them. Everything changes when Junta meets Nagisa Kubo. She’s the only person who pays Junta any attention, and her constant teasing is sure to turn Junta’s quiet life upside down because Kubo won’t let him be invisible!
