Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop

The original anime film Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop will premiere on July 22nd on the Netflix streaming platform. The film enters Japanese theaters on the same time.

Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop features a young man known only as Cherry, and a young girl known only as Smile; each of the pair have their own insecurities and the film will follow the pair as they’re brought together by their passions.

A summary of the film from MyAnimeList can be found below.

The “boy-meets-girl” story depicts how words and music bridge the gap between Cherry, a boy who is terrible at communicating with other people, and Smile, a girl who hides behind a mask. They meet in a mundane suburban shopping mall in a provincial city.

Cherry always wears headphones and puts the feelings he cannot utter into his hobby, Japanese haiku poems. Smile always wears a mask to conceal her large front teeth, for which she has dental braces. As a popular video star, she streams a video about seeking “cuteness.”

A trailer for the film can be found below.
