Synopsis

Five years ago, gravity-defying bubbles with mysterious powers rained down upon the earth. After a huge explosion of uncertain origin, Tokyo became ground zero, with the city being enclosed in a gigantic bubble. As a result of this "Bubble Fall" phenomenon, the metropolis that was once the capital of Japan drowned in a gravity-bending sea; the government declared it a prohibited zone, and the residents abandoned it.

Children orphaned by the Bubble Fall now squat illegally in Tokyo, partaking in dangerous parkour team battles across the city's dilapidated buildings. Hibiki—a talented ace in these games with the ability to jump between bubbles—claims he can hear sounds from the Tokyo Tower. Determined to uncover its mysteries, he sets off toward the source, but he falls into the waters below.

A strange girl, whom he later nicknames Uta, saves him. But little does Hibiki know that Uta's appearance in his life will reveal the secrets behind the disastrous event that changed their world forever.

I'm well aware of the fact that this anime is not unique. Most aren't. But it's refreshing to watch something devoid of the usual tropes, with some of them being shouting attack names, never-ending monologues or conversations in the middle of a fight scene, plot armor that's so ridiculous to the point it makes no sense, power of friendship, exaggerated facial expressions, and so forth. All of these are prevalent in most action anime. I get it. That's just how it works.
Bubble, however, is devoid of these tropes. That alone shouod be an obvious indicator of why I appreciate it so much, though it is ...

Mixed Feelings
While the animation is super duper pretty and make for a really lovely visual experience, the plot left much to be desired. The initial premise, the location, the minor past we're shown are rather unique and my expectations were a lot higher than the movie I ended up watching. There was a lot of lost potential in my opinion and there certainly is better alternative movies that I would recommend instead of this one. The characters felt mostly generic or boring, I didn't connect with any of them. The music was another decent aspect though, I did enjoy the accompanying audio, it felt fitting and ...

'Bubble' is really two movies for the price of one. The first movie is a sci-fi apocalyptic retelling of 'The Little Mermaid'. The second movie is... parkour.
What I can say about the first movie is that it has an intriguing premise. Unfortunately, that's where my praise ends. The characters are largely undeveloped and their motivations ignored. As a result, the climax and resolution feel hollow. The character design went above and beyond in differentiating the cast through accessories and quirks, but all of this means nothing when we learn nothing about them as people during the film.
What I can say about the ...
