Aquatope on White Sand Episode 21 Recap
Following her disappointing experience and her manager's request to go on with the wedding planning proposal regardless of the animals' wellbeing, Kukuru stops attending work. On a whim, she sails to a small nearby island. Her character development is shown in the fact that she at least tells Fuuka she's safe, rather than shutting everyone out as she did earlier on.
Fuuka tries to make up an excuse for Kukuru but the assistant manager doesn't believe her, meaning that Kukuru is going to be in trouble when she gets home.
As for Kukuru, she meets Misaki, Umi-yan's wife, who works on the island and suggests lodgings. Kukuru spends her time helping Misaki clean the shore to have it ready for when sea turtle eggs will hatch. She also visits a little old aquarium that reminds her of Gama Gama and meets a young man who was once supervised by her grandfather.
Back in Okinawa, the penguins of Gama Gama are transferred to Tingaara. Almost immediately, they get into a fight. This really worries Fuuka who is more and more concerned about marine life. On the eve of the sea turtles' hatching, she takes a day off and goes away to find Kukuru.
