Ultimately, this week’s episode of The aquatope on white sand feels like a follow up to a follow-up episode, as well as a character study into Fuuka’s tendency to evade her problems. It’s the best way she knows to avoid conflict and more pain, and I can’t fault her for that. Plus, this episode is well-written enough that Fuuka’s actions and general train of thought feel authentic. I’ve got my gripes with it, but… what can I say? I still really like Fuuka and every character in aquatope, even if the show is taking its time meandering in the story it wants to tell.
