He's been a longtime friend of Kukuru's and has worked at the Gama Gama Aquarium over the summer.
Kuya Yakamashi, a Gama Gama Aquarium employee, is played by Yhei Azakami. He talks plainly and seems to be sluggish, but he is very serious about his work. He has a hard time relating to girls his age and always avoids making eye contact with them. Since the aquarium is so short-staffed, he works long shifts that exhaust him. Kukuru's grandmother's umeshu is one of his favorites.

Kukuru Misakino, an 18-year-old high school student who works there, is aware of the aquarium's "secret": strange objects can be seen on occasion. Kukuru runs into Fuuka one day, who is standing in front of a water tank, her hair streaming and a tear rolling down her face. Fuuka has abandoned her dream of being an idol and fled to Okinawa from Tokyo. Fuuka earnestly requests to work at the aquarium in order to find a place to call home. The anime follows Kukuru and Fuuka as they struggle with the aquarium's secret and a looming crisis that could lead to its closure.
