Bubble portrayed the story of a boy and a girl who are attracted towards each other in Japan where gravity no longer exists. Tokyo, isolated from the rest of the planet, has turned into a playground for a bunch of young people who’ve lost their families, serving as a battleground for parkour teams as players jump from building to building. Hibiki, a teenage ace renowned for his daring style of play, pulls a risky strategy one day and falls into the gravity-defying sea. Uta, a girl possessing unusual abilities, saves his life. The two then hear a strange sound that only they can notice. What is the relevance of Uta’s appearance to Hibiki? Their meeting leads to a discovery that will alter the course of history.
