What is the Plot of Bubble?
Bubbles raining down on the world have broken the laws of gravity in an alternate universe. For the Japanese, Tokyo has been completely cut off from the outside world, and all that remains are groups of young people competing in parker team battles across Tokyo’s skyline.
Hibiki, a reckless but talented ace, falls from the rooftops, but before falling into the gravity-bending sea below, he is saved by Uta, a girl with mysterious powers. The pair are united by their ability to hear sounds that only they can hear.
