Aquatope of white sand: Plot Overview
Kukuru Misakino is an eighteen-year-old who works at Gama Gama Aquarium in Okinawa. The aquarium has a secret that she has known for a while. She has a dream she wants to fulfill someday and works hard for it.
On the other hand, we have another eighteen-year-old girl, Fūka Miyazawa, who is a runaway from Tokyo. She was an idol, but now she has given up on her dreams. She has fled from her home in Tokyo and escaped to Okinawa.
Kukuru meets Fūka in the aquarium and learns that she has run away. She invites her to live with her. Fūka asks Kukuru to let her work in the aquarium. Together, they find more about the mysterious secret of the aquarium. But, things go unsteady when they find out that the aquarium will soon be closed, and they decide to fight and save it.
The anime will resonate around the development of these characters as they learn from each other. The beautiful chemistry between these two main characters is quite visible in the trailers. This looks like the CGDCT genre of anime, but there is so much in-depth plot to it that a simple genre like CGDCT does not seem to justify it well. The anime seems like it will deliver promising drama, chemistry, and just the appropriate touch of supernatural elements to glitter it up.
