Previously released trailer and visual:
Bubble features Tetsuro Araki of Attack on Titan fame in the director’s chair working off of a screenplay written by Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) with character designs from Death Note‘s original manga illustrator Takeshi Obata at WIT Studio. Composer Hiroyuki Sawano (Attack on Titan) will be handling the composition of the film’s music. Bubble streams on Netflix worldwide on April 28 ahead of a Japanese theatrical release scheduled for May 13. Netflix describes the film as such:
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.
