The leak did not provide any information about the number of episodes or whether these arcs will be broadcast sequentially or separately.

Shiroi Suna no Aquatope summary

The story takes place in the Gama Gama Aquarium, a small aquarium in Okinawa, an hour's bus ride from Naha. Kukuru Misakino is an 18-year-old high school student who works there and knows the “secret” of the aquarium: sometimes there are mysterious things to be seen. One day, Kukuru meets Fuuka, who is standing in front of a water tank with her hair down and a tear down her cheek. Fuuka has given up her dream of becoming an idol and fled Tokyo to Okinawa. In search of a place to belong, Fuuka asks Kukuru for a job in the aquarium. So the story follows Kukuru and Fuuka as they grapple with the problems of the aquarium's mystery and the impending crisis of its possible closure.
