Bubble: A Netflix’s original Anime movie
In order to describe his script for Netflix’s new original anime film Bubble, Urobuchi uses an unusual way.
A typical mermaid story inspired him to play around with it. Instead of the girl falling in love and ending up as bubbles, the bubble will fall in love and transform into a girl, as reported by Polygon.
When it comes to its vision of a sunny, flooded Toyko that is being overrun by plants and reclaimed by nature, the first trailer for Bubble is a little reminiscent of Weathering With You.
Polygon reported that it shows a city that is overtaken by plants and recovered by nature, making it the perfect setting for a love story.
However, its concept, in which floating bubbles defy gravity rain down on the city, allowing young people to expand buildings and explore the world in three dimensions by trying to jump between floating bubbles, making it appear more like a game.
In Collaboration with Netflix
