Film premieres next April on Netflix ahead of Japanese theatrical release
Netflix has quietly posted the first teaser for a new original anime film produced by WIT Studio called Bubble and describes it:
The story is set in Tokyo, after bubbles that broke the laws of gravity rained down upon the world. 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 play style, makes a reckless move one day and plummets into the gravity-bending sea. His life is saved by Uta, a girl with mysterious powers. 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 series staff will feature Tetsuro Araki of Attack on Titan fame in the director's chair working off of a screenplay written by Gen Urobuchi with character designs from Death Note's Takeshi Obata. Fan favorite composer Hiroyuki Sawano will be handling the film's music composition. WIT Studio will be handling animation production. The film's initial cast will feature Jun Shison, Mamoru Miyano, Yuki Kaji, and Tasuku Hatanaka.
The film will be released on Netflix worldwide on April 28th, 2022 ahead of a Japanese theatrical release slated for May 13th, 2022. The key visual follows below.
