Bubble is coming to Netflix this April 28 of this year, and this film made my eyes happy because it likes what it sees. The movie is under the direction of Tetsurō Araki, The director of hits like Attack on Titan, Death Note, and Highschool of the Dead. Gen Urobuchihas written the screenplay of Bubble. He is also known for writing the masterpiece Puella Magi Madoka. This Cinematic Anime had a limited run with the Berlin International Film Festival before its upcoming Netflix release. Parkour is hard to draw and animate, but this film’s animators made it happen. The visual of this movie is a new artistic experience. Feast your optics with the whimsical trippy daydream that works well with world-building. Araki, Urobuchi, and the whole team worked in symphony to make this vision transpire.
