It's actually Aquatope according to the official website's URL. But the tweet from P.A. Works also misspells it as Auatrope.

Two girls meeting in an aquarium is becoming part of the vernacular for yuri so I'm going to be disappointed if they don't lean towards that (I still plan on watching it)! Laughing

There's no debate—the katakana clearly read "アクアトープ," meaning "aquatrope." The anime studio inability to proofread English strikes again.

Be fair 99% of Americans cant read basic kana, so what is point? Anime studio's primary focus is on JDM, nor America. Razz

Hmm... It has that usual PA Works aesthetic going on which means that there's a high possibility that I won't like it. The concept does sound like it could be interesting though.

This looks like what Amanchu should have been. Amanchu that wasn't created by an A-hole D-bag, anti-yuri homophobic PoS author named Amano Kozue. I hope PA Works isn't going to play yuri fans like fools just like Amano Kozue, Mitsuo Fukuda, Ayako Ikeda,
Naoko Yamada, KyoAni, Trigger, and Cygames love to do.

Amanchu used to be popular among yuri fans until Kozue saw the yuri shipping and brought a male love interest to kill it. She hated it. Very a-holish move of her. Just another indication that Japan doesn't like yuri and yuri fans and doesn't see them as a profitable market. For them, they're like refugees and damn fiddles. I hope this anime will make them respect yuri and fans.

Thanks everyone for pointing out the anime's title misspelling. Yes we got the English title from the official English Twitter account, which misspelled it. I did read the katakana but assumed "Auatrope" was what they wanted to go for, so I kept it like that, but I see that other Tweets on the same English Twitter account did use "Aquatrope," so yes obviously that one Tweet was just misspelled. We corrected the article.

Are you serious? Just because you didn't like the direction the manga headed doesn't mean that you can call the mangaka random words like homophobic or something.
