After several CGI-overloaded series, Netflix has finally started valuing the originality of anime. Its upcoming production is a jaw-dropping collaboration with Wit Studio for an anime film, Bubble.
From sci-fi elements to incredible parkour stunts, Bubble has everything a young adult audience desires. Add to it the ingenuity of beautiful animation, and it has the potential of breaking box office records.
A new original anime by Wit Studio titled Bubble will premiere on Netflix on April 28, 2022. It will also be released in Japanese theaters on May 13.
Netflix has revealed an English subbed trailer for the upcoming anime:
The trailer gives us the film’s plot. It has a queer premise where gravity-defying bubbles have rained down on Tokyo. Hibiki, the anime’s protagonist, jumps on these bubbles and pulls off daredevil stunts.
The twist is when he encounters a girl with special powers, and they discover that both of them can hear a specific sound calling to them.
A new visual also shows Uta holding onto one of the bubbles.
The trailer and visual both portray Tokyo and another sunken city. Are the protagonists from two parallel worlds?
Wit Studio is hiring the best staff members for Bubble, who include:
|Director||Tetsuro Araki||Attack on Titan|
|Script Writer||Gen Urobuchi||Psycho-Pass|
|Character Designer||Takeshi Obata||Death Note|
|Music Composer||Hiroyuki Sawano||Attack on Titan|
The following cast members have also been announced, although their respective characters haven’t been revealed:
|Mamoru Miyano||Osamu Dazai (Bungou Stray Dogs)|
|Yuuki Kaji||Eren Jaeger (Attack on Titan)|
|Hiroyuki Sawano||Reki (Sk8 the Infinity)|
Bubble will be receiving a Netflix-exclusive premiere. The streaming giant’s collaboration with Wit, Production I. G., and Bones is finally yielding results.
More exciting anime series and films will be revealed in the upcoming year while we patiently wait for Bubble and hope it’s Netflix’s apology letter to otakus.
Bubble is an original anime film by Wit studio that will premiere on Netflix on April 28, 2022. It will later be premiered in Japanese theaters on May 15.
The plot starts when gravity-defying bubbles start falling on Tokyo. Hibiki is a dauntless guy who loves parkour and was on his usual run when he meets Uta.
Coincidentally, both of them can hear a strange sound that no one else can pick up. This will lead them to an adventure which can change the world.
