posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Muse Malaysia also announced last week that it will distribute the anime.
The anime stars:
Miku Itō as Kukuru Misakino
Rikako Aida as Fuuka Miyazawa
Azumi Waki as Tsukimi Teruya
Lynn as Karin Kudaka
Yōhei Azakami as Kūya Yakamashi
Hiroshi Yanaka as Kukuru's grandfather
The anime takes place at Gama Gama Aquarium, a small aquarium in Okinawa, an hour's bus ride from Naha. Kukuru Misakino is an 18-year-old high school student who works there, and she knows about the "secret" of the aquarium: sometimes you can see mysterious things. One day Kukuru meets Fuuka, standing in front of a water tank with flowing hair and a tear rolling down her cheek. Fuuka has given up on her dream of becoming an idol and she has run away from Tokyo to Okinawa. Wanting to find a place to belong, Fuuka earnestly asks to work at the aquarium. The anime follows Kukuru and Fuuka as they deal with the issues of the secret of the aquarium and a looming crisis of its possible closure.
