Why is she swimming?
It's nice to swim once in a while.
Played with a single layer, restricting myself to using mainly the cloud tool. I'll post the image after the dump.
I shall help, to speed up things.
Despite missing out on 70% of the manga, I can't help but smile.
Well this can get confusing. How 'bout we switch off every other page after this one?
I accidentally skipped an image. I feel bad.
No worries. Thanks for the help!
No problem. This one is quite lengthy.
Despite not having watched Natural/Origination, and not having read 70% of the manga, I can't help but smile.
You don't mind being spoiled?
Not really for Aria. It's iyashikei, after all. It brings a smile to my face, no matter what part I read; much like Yotsuba.
Nice, I feel the same.
Still though, it makes me a bit sad that it's over.
I remember raging a lot when I knew about Aika's haircut. ;_;
Mhm. But you'll be fine, just like Akari.
We will all be. We will all be.
These few pages have the same sort of panelling, interestingly enough.
Oh you're right! I never noticed.
Oh Christ, here comes the double captcha.
It ain't too bad. At least I can still read it ;_;
I'm just glad these pages are small in size.
Having watched the anime first, I found blogging really surprising.
Blogging? It certainly does change your view on things.
At least I think she is? Unless she's just e-mailing multiple people.
Somewhat, I suppose.
Shall we include Amano's foreword extra?
I'm afraid I'll have to leave that to you. Mines just stops at page 48. Are you using ACS?
ACS. I'll do it then, it's rather short. Wait for the art at the end!
Reading this almost every day with the dump really has been life changing for me. Every time I hear the OST, or even see anything related to Amano's work, it relaxes me and makes me smile.
Alright! I really need to dig around for better scans.
Didn't Alicia do that exact same pose? Also, I grabbed the ones from mangatraders. I'm a lazy bastard.
She sure did. I'll go look for the picture after the dump.
Last page of the chapter. I'll be posting the foreword after this, which is just two pages.
Last page of the foreword. Posting art will be annoying due to the filesize.
Played with one layer and what is essentially a modified watercolor brush.
Thank you, Amano Kozue, for sharing a certain magical happiness.
Ah, good stuff as always. I don't remember this spread though, did you stitch it together?
Oops, didn't mean to post that image.
I think whoever scanned it did the stitch; it is wonderfully done.
On another note, can anyone find the source of this image? I can't find it on Pixiv. Pixiv bitches at me for not being a premium member to look at the most popular images, the image being included.
Welp, even quoted the wrong post. And no wonder I didn't remember it.
Also I'd like to share something myself.
I just completed this poem today.
My friend would probably just call it gay.
This guy draws a lot of ARIA doujins.
Thanks for the link. I couldn't find it at all! Also, the artist is a girl.
I knew it. I knew I bookmarked you!
The images help quite a lot, the poem felt somewhat mischievous yet adventurous.
You take such nice pictures, they're all so warm and calming.
Not surprised I guess, her drawings are too cute.
I'm flattered. Glad you liked it!
This is gorgeous. I really like Aria spreads with color schemes like this.
I'm glad you like it! I'm sure you'll like the one with the Aria Company building and stars and whatnot.
Maybe one day I'll go for an adventure, ones like yours; a day trip to some strange location.
I'm afraid I have to go. Good night, everyone.
I usually don't have a set location in mind when I set out. Just look on the map and pick someplace that looks secluded or interesting, which usually ends up being in the mountains for me.
Definitely. I've always sought out for nighttime Aria fanart but they're hard to come across especially and quality ones at that. But yeah, nice work.
On a random note. I really liked the artist that did this.
