Warner Bros. Japan opened an official website for an original anime movie titled Bubble on Tuesday, revealing the main staff, cast, a teaser visual (pictured), and trailer. The movie is scheduled to premiere worldwide on Netflix on April 28, and in Japanese theaters on May 13.

Synopsis
In a Tokyo where gravity has broken, a boy and a girl are drawn to each other...

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. (Source: Netflix)

Actor Jun Shison (Gokushufudou live-action) is starring as Hibiki. Other voice actors joining the cast includes Mamoru Miyano (Bungou Stray Dogs), Yuuki Kaji (Boku no Hero Academia), and Tasuku Hatanaka (SK∞).

Director: Tetsurou Araki (Shingeki no Kyojin, Koutetsujou no Kabaneri)
Script: Gen Urobuchi (Psycho-Pass, Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica)
Original Character Design: Takeshi Obata (Death Note, Bakuman.)

A mix of Patema Inverted and Flip Flappers with Aquatope type artstyle. Netflix has the chance to do something great

The PV looks amazing.

Wit studio + Gen Urobuchi, character design done by Takeshi Obata and Sawano doing music. Now that's some epic staff team.

Also yeah this does remind me of patema.

This genuinely sounds like an All-Star team of Anime Staff members working on this. Hope it's a good project and not a clusterfuck to say the least. I'm gonna be keeping my eye out most for the story written by Urobuchi since that's normally a make or break element for me more than how good the visuals and designs are.

The madman Urobuchi is involved. Say no more, I’m already very interested. Looks like an all-star team here, too. Hopefully it doesn’t flop.

I was wondering what Araki was up to. Well, here's my answer. I'm genuinely surprised how good the core staff is looking, I feel like we rarely see so many big names gather together like this. Hopefully the project ends up being good.

look like patema inverted concept put into Expelled from Paradise setting.
Never liked most of Gen Urobuchi stuff which I tried. So probably will not watch it. Plus trailer look kind of empty of characters, I don't think I like that kind of atmosphere
HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON!!!

"Plus trailer look kind of empty of characters"

•What do you mean by empty of characters?

"I don't think I like that kind of atmosphere"

• Have you seen any anime with this kind of atmosphere before?

Jeez, if that isn't stacked, I don't know what is. It certainly looks ambitious, I hope the movie does well. Wit looks set to be the most prominent anime studio of the new decade.

My favorite Japanese writer, my favorite Japanese composer, the director of the first 4 seasons of AoT and Wit Studio all coming together for a film

Saying that I am hyped outta my mind and that anime is saved is a fucking understatement for me rn especially considering how great that PV was even....Obata killing it with the character designs once again too

And then the GOAT Mamoru Miyano and Yuki Kaji are attached to this too even...Holy fuck lol

Looks like Tenki no Ko; story feels like it'd be similar, too. Could be an interesting visual experience in theaters, but idk

Already mentioned in my comment Expelled from Paradise. More like post apocalypse with less no supporting cast or extremely minimal focus. Anyways its more of intuition rather than actual bulletin category.

That teaser only show case it's fluid animation and beautiful music. There was hardly any character interaction don't come up with a fair conclusion just by seeing 1 min teaser.

No I think you are the one who is first time watching anime teaser.

Anyway Look like you are getting offended. It's often happens mostly when people can't give any fair reply.

So let's end our conversation here. Have a nice day.
