Aquatope of White Sand Episode 9 introduced a new member to the Gama Gama team, and Kukuru is having none of it. As the closing day of the beloved aquarium grows closer, our main character finds it hard to process her feelings and she takes it out on others.
The originalslice-of-life anime is taking a clearer magical realist turn in this episode, leaving little doubt that something supernatural is going on. Shiroi Suna no Aquatope doesn't strike me as the kind of anime that will explain this in detail, but still, everything becomes more interesting with a touch of magic.
The newest episode ended in a slightly unsettling tone, meaning that fans will be looking forward to Aquatope of White Sand Episode 10. Below, you will find its release date, release time, and more.
Aquatope of White SandEpisode 9Recap
Haebara, an employee from another aquarium, comes to Gama Gama for training. Kukuru is extremely hostile, as the imminent closure of her favorite place in the world shadows her judgment. While Kukuru's behavior is irritating, and you can't help wishing that she will just grow up, Haebara isn't that likable either.
Behind a friendly demeanor, lies an understandable goal, but also quite a lot of contempt for the place she's supposed to learn from. It's hard not to feel for both characters at different points.
Haebara is shocked by the fact that the customers in Gama Gama spend most of their time socializing with the staff, rather than looking at the animals. She fails to understand that this is only because these people are regulars who love the place and know it really well. Thinking she's getting nothing out of the internship, she decides to transfer elsewhere.
Fuuka and Kukuru spend an emotional night, as the latter reveals a big secret. In her small town, parents are only given a maternity book by the community center when they have a baby, but there are two in Kukuru's house, suggesting she might have a lost sibling. Could this be associated with the cute little spirit that resides in the nearby temple?
This spirit isn't the only supernatural thing going on. By talking to two young boys who are regulars in Gama Gama, Kukuru finds out that one of them sees his dead dog in the aquarium - just like she sees her long-dead parents. Before, it might have been easy to dismiss such incidents as one-off cases; but not anymore, as it seems. What could it mean for the anime?
At the end of the episode, Kukuru goes to visit Haebara's aquarium, likely to try and learn by seeing something different, or to apologize. Meanwhile, Fuuka receives an unsettling call from a former colleague from her idol days.
