Netflix's anime lovers can welcome Spring 2022 by streaming Wit Studio's newest film 'Bubble,' available worldwide in April. 'Bubble' is a 'Netflix Original' anime film will release later this month.

Wit Studio, that is producing the film, is the same animation studio that brought us 'Attack on Titan,' and if the trailer is any indication, 'Bubble' will be a similar visual extravaganza. The anime film will be distributed worldwide by Netflix, but in Japan, the distribution rights are held by Warner Bros. Pictures. If you want to watch more anime on the platform, 'DOTA: Dragon's Blood,' 'Eden,' and 'Love, Death, and Robots' are among some of the most popular choices on Netflix.

What is 'Bubble' about?

Bubbles showering down on the globe have changed the rules of gravity in an alternative universe. Tokyo has been sealed off from the rest of the world, and all that is left are groups of young people participating in parkour team fights throughout Tokyo's skyline. Hibiki, a reckless but skillful ace, slips from the rooftops but is rescued by Uta, a magically gifted girl, before plummeting into the gravity-defying lake below. What connects them is their ability to perceive a sound that is only audible to them.

The trailer begins with Hibiki and Uta's fatal rendezvous in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo, with cities and buildings drowning in water. WIT Studio, which is most known for producing the first three seasons of 'Attack on Titan,' has created rich graphics and superb animation for scenes depicting the movie's actors soaring and flying high over floating debris and abandoned buildings.
