3 Episode Rule – The Aquatope on White Sand

3 Episode Rule is a series in which I watch the first three episodes of a new anime and decide whether to stick with it or drop it based on those three episodes alone.

I decided to take this series on for little other reason outside of it being a slice of life show set within an Aquarium. I don’t know if it comes from growing up in one of the most landlocked parts of the U.K. but I’ve always had this obsession with the Ocean, sea-life and visiting Aquariums.

This past few seasons I’ve started to be a little bit more discerning and doing a little research on what’s coming up. Which kind of feels like it’s missing the point of this whole blog series.

Either way, nobody is really raving about any of the original series airing this Summer Season. So I feel like it’s down to my own questionable taste to actually dig through this mountain of Isekai and find something actually worth keeping up with.
