An English-subtitled trailer was streamed by Netflix recently for Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop. It revealed that the service will stream the film on July 22, the same day that it opens in Japan. Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop (Cider no Yō ni Kotoba ga Wakiagaru) is an original anime film by Flying Dog.

The plot can be described as a “boy-meets-girl” story. It revolves around 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 story depicts how words and music help bridge the gap between these two.
Kyōhei Ishiguro announced that the film would open on June 25. It was during the film’s screening at the Tokyo International Film Festival last November. It was delayed from its original May 15 opening date due to the spread of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
