The Aquatope On White Sand has just ended, and the debate around the second season has already begun. The final episode of the series came out on December 17, 2021. Soon enough, fans began to look for news about its renewal. Even the final episode skipped any hints on the sequel. However, there are many clues that may answer the question of its return. So, what is happening behind the scenes on The Aquatope On White Sand Season 2? Is it returning? What will be the plot? Will there be a delay? Here is everything to know about it.
The Aquatope On White Sand, better known as Shiroi Suna no Akuatōpu, is a P.A. Works original series. The slice of life story deals with the personal and professional lives of two passionate ladies. While working in an environment filled with water animals, Kukuru and Fuuka learn new life lessons every day. With a successful run between July to December 2021, the series made quite a name for itself. Now, the sequel has come under the release radar.
The Aquatope On White Sand Season 2: Renewal Status
As of now, no official announcement has come by from the side of the show’s makers. In most cases, such renewals are announced right after a season comes to an end. In the case of The Aquatope On White Sand Season 2, no such revelation came by. However, the overall reception of the pilot season was decent in terms of viewership and praises. The IMDb rating of the series has been 7.3 out of 10. The MyAnimeList rating of the pilot touched 7.5 stars.
Thus, it can be assumed that the reception points towards an early renewal. One more factor that affects a renewal is the contract with the Studio. Japanese animation companies are usually booked months ahead of time. Thus, if the makers have not relied on the reception and booked the studio in advance, then an early renewal announcement can be expected.
What Will Be The Plot?
Since the season has not been announced as of yet, there is no chance that the plot will surface before the renewal. On top of this, The Aquatope on White Sand is an original series that does not draw the story from text material. This not only opens the possibility of multiple seasons but also gives room for spin-offs and reboots. So, the upcoming storyline of the second season will follow Fuuka and Kukuru after the two-year leap.
Fuuka is back from her training period in Hawaii. Meanwhile, Kukuru has also learned to live with her existing job while also working towards her passion. With both the girls back together, it is most likely that the story will kick off with a new venture. Fuuka has now experienced caretaking and management first-hand. Moreover, Kukuru already has ample experience in company management. Thus, it is safe to say that these two business ladies might start an aquarium of their own.
The Aquatope On White Sand Season 2: Release Date
At the time of writing, there is no announcement of the release of the second season. However, judging by the reception of the first season, it is likely that the story will kick off with a new storyline soon enough. Even if the season resumes production this year, it will likely take around twelve to eighteen months to complete, at the least. Thus, fans can expect to see the new season come out by mid-2023. In case the studio has already started works on Season 2, the anime might arrive sooner. This section will be updated accordingly. Thus, keep an eye on this corner to get more updates.
