The kids, the adults along with divine beings in the narrative were good. They displayed their cordial side of existence. Nonetheless the lead, Kanna was depicted as an accurate 6th grader who is a selfish, cheerful,non-considerate yet a good girl. Yasha and Shiro were also nice.

Both Yasha and Shiro are responsible individuals who take their duties wholeheartedly. They were nice actually.

Bubble (2022) Review: Is This Post Apocalyptic Film Worth Your Day? ***SPOILERS***
If you critically watch the content, there are numerous loose ends that might pop up here and there. For instance, Shiro once says that he took Shiro’s body, for the time being, however, after some time the idea was dismissed. Additionally, the story of Child of Kamiari Month is not something new, you have already watched many similar contents where a girl, a boy and an animal being, sets off for a journey(For example Cardcaptor Sakura & Inuyasha)to accomplish a particular goal.
Further, there is nothing to learn from the characters in the movie. Kanna is a very non-considerate brat who undoubtedly loves her mother but was very inconsiderate towards her father, which might bother you as well. But honestly, the responsible act that the kid, Kanna showed at the end of the movie was noteworthy too.
