If you are a fan of anime, there’s a piece of good news for you. On December 6, 2022, Netflix shared a trailer on its official YouTube channel for an upcoming original anime movie titled Bubble.
Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming movie.
According to Netflix’s synopsis, Tetsurō Araki’s anime film explores the aftermath of a world forever changed by a rain of bubbles that defy gravity. “Cut off from the outside world, Tokyo has become a playground for a group of young people who have lost their families, acting as a battlefield for parkour team battles as they leap from building to building. Hibiki, a young ace known for his dangerous playstyle, makes a reckless move one day and plummets into the gravity-bending sea. His life is saved by Uta, a girl with mysterious powers who appears suddenly. The pair then hear a unique sound audible only to them. Why did Uta appear before Hibiki? Their encounter leads to a revelation that will change the world.”
The upcoming Netflix anime movie is joining a very accomplished company, alongside beauties like Weathering With You, Lilo and Stitch, Ponyo, and even 2021’s Luca. Another water-related tale will be explored in this film, which will employ a brilliantly animated backdrop to show the love between two young people.
