A summer animated movie that will warm your heart

Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop is an unusual movie title, but it will make sense when you watch it, and you will feel warm inside with its beautiful meaning.

The animation is colorful and vibrant, it will for sure put you in a summer mood and take you back to those summers that never seemed to end, and that you didn't want to end.

You'll be smiling through the entirety of the movie, as it takes a touching unexpected turn in the second act that will grab your feelings and not let go.

The character's insecurities are pretty much part of their personality and are properly handled throughout the course of the movie, through subtle and not-so-subtle changes that show growth, acceptance, and confidence, more evident in the male protagonist, Cherry.

I would've liked to see a bit more development with the female counterpart Smile, but she was endearing and relatable nonetheless.

Overall, I really enjoyed watching this, a definite high note in this 2021 summer season.

Cute movies, new drawings!

Cute movies, never seen before, new drawings! Nice and quiet story. The story of the old man who goes to intertwine with that of the boy and the girl is very sweet. Must see for lovers of anime movies!

This is great ( Words fail me)

Words Bubble Up Like Soda Pop have a terrible trailer I can say. It showed the whole movie. If only they had cut several parts and the movie would have been harder to predict.

There are no plot twists if you pay attention to every details.

However, I rate this 10 as it brightens my day. The movie describes the happening world (without COVID w) with communication breakdown, which I found sympathetic as an teenager. This movie is really colorful (and it's a bit weird), making it really appropriate for summer.

In total, I highly recommend this movie~!

8 / 10

it was a fun movie, but I would forget about it after a month or so.

You have to give were the credit should be given, this movie was gorgeous looking, absolutely phenomenal artstyle, every single frame of this movie could be a wallpaper for you're computer. Next positive is our main characters yeah both are pretty generic at start but I don't know how to describe it but it was just cute for a two polar opposites to fall in love. But as usual with these kind of seasonal anime film its lacking impact in terms of both story and characters, I watched the movie about 6hrs ago and I only remember the name of cherry and smile, and the story forgettable but very wholesome. Best positive of this anime is that you can recommend this to anybody and they will all love.

Good story, less elaborative

Words bubble like a soda pop was a decent watch with okay storyline (although it could have been better). The colours were vibrant, although I didn't liked the animation much. Nonetheless, the story was a slow build romance but the emotional content and connection felt a bit lacking among the leads.

There was a story but it didn't dug deep and refused to elaborate to a 100% satisfying ending. The best part was the OST which felt quite unique and stayed well with the movie scenes. Atleast it wasn't like Uchia Hanabi, which was a total dud/disappoinment for me.

PROS:Simple yet attractive storylineThe lead characters were goodThe OST of the anime was captivating

CONS:Didn't hate, but not liked the animation very muchStory coulld have been more elaborative

My Rating : 6/10.
