The Japanese broadcast schedule (below) has been revealed for Aquatope of White Sand (known in Japan as Shiroi Suna no Aquatope), an upcoming original TV anime about two young women who meet and bond at their jobs working in an aquarium in Okinawa that is teetering on the brink of financial ruin.



A "girl-meets-girl" ensemble youth drama set in Nanjō City, Okinawa, Aquatope of White Sand tells the story of Fuuka Miyazawa, a former idol who gives up on her dreams in Tokyo and moves to Okinawa, and Kukuru Misakino, a high school girl who serves as the acting director of the Gamagama Aquarium. Kukuru invites Fuuka to work at the aquarium, but the aquarium is in a financial crisis and is on the verge of shutting down.
