Release after release, Netflix hasn’t failed to deliver captivating shows and movies to their audience. Just recently, the streaming platform added a live-action adaption of Cowboy Bebop to their wide array of content. Following this initiative to push anime forward, Bubble, a thrilling new Netflix anime feature experience of gravity-based action, has also been set to release.
Bubble takes place in an alternate Tokyo, where the laws of gravity have been broken due to bubbles that manipulate this force of nature. 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.
While this is our first time learning about the show, the people that made the anime possible are a promising cast. The creation of Bubble has brought together some of the most popular and talented anime creators, including director Tetsuro Araki and WIT Studio, the forces behind the hugely popular Attack on Titan anime.
“I’ve been working on this project quietly for many years, but I’m happy to finally unveil it. I did what I’m best at to the best of my ability alongside many familiar faces. A lot of exciting pictures have surfaced. I hope you enjoy what we’ve created! While it will definitely feature exhilarating action and beautiful background art, I hope that I can also take everyone to even more unexpected places this time. I can’t wait to share it with everyone! ”
– Director Tetsuro Araki
