Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop Film Delayed Due to Coronavirus Disease COVID-19 Declaration
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for Flying Dog's original anime film Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop (Cider no Yō ni Kotoba ga Wakiagaru) announced on Tuesday that the film's opening has been delayed due to the Japanese government's state of emergency declaration against the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The website will announce a new release date when it has been decided, and people who already bought the advance MoviTicke cards can still use them after the rescheduled film screenings start.
The film was previously slated for May 15.
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."
The original film commemorates the 10th anniversary of Victor Entertainment's animation and music production subsidiary Flying Dog. Kyōhei Ishiguro (Your Lie in April, Occultic;Nine) is directing the anime at Signal.MD and Sublimation. Dai Sato (Eureka Seven, Wolf's Rain, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bebop) is writing the screenplay, and Yukiko Aikei (Your Lie in April, Accel World) is designing the characters. Composer kensuke ushio (DEVILMAN crybaby, Space Dandy, A Silent Voice) is scoring the music.
