The anime takes place at Gama Gama Aquarium, a small aquarium in Okinawa, an hour bus ride from Naha. Kukuru Misakino is an 18-year-old high school student who works there, and she knows about the aquarium’s “secret”: sometimes you can see mysterious things. One day, Kukuru met Fuuka, standing in front of a pool of water with long flowing hair and tears rolling down her cheeks. Fuuka gave up her dream of becoming an idol and she ran away from Tokyo to Okinawa. Wanting to find a place to belong, Fuuka earnestly applied to work at the aquarium. The anime follows Kukuru and Fuuka as they deal with problems with the aquarium’s secrecy and a potential crisis over its possible closure.
