It is already this hour?
The night sure goes fast.
Been a long day for me. How was yours?
Last two days have been pretty hectic for me, but today it was my break.
Nice. Same here, school is done for the week.
Been meaning to ask you this, what were your thoughts on watching Aria starting with Origination first? You did go with Origination>Animation>Natural order right?
I'm currently rewatching Animation and surprisingly the show seems better overall since I've already grown attached to the characters.
I accidentally watched it in this order: Animation>Origination>Natural
It felt like I was given more ARIA after it finished. Animation alone was enough for me to get attached to the characters.
That's certainly interesting. Did Origination meet your standards season despite not watching Natural before? I mean it is the most highly acclaimed out of the three seasons for obvious reasons.
I still wouldn't know how'd I react if I watched in your order though but I'm sure that I would've enjoyed the show regardless since Aria was the gateway series that led me to branch out to other SoLs.
My standards were pretty low at the time plus I didn't really expect much. Despite missing an entire 2 cour season of buildup, Origination blew me away.
ARIA really raised the bar for me. It's also the only series that I rewatched immediately after finishing it.
I went in blindly when I first watching Aria and I wasn't into SoL much since I thought it was just average at first but I would've never expected for Aria to reach GOAT standards when I finished the last season.
I even held my expectations at an all time high and Origination managed to surpass them. The only series that I've done this with are LOGH and Natsume Yuuchinjou.
But yeah it's quite nostalgic watching Animation once you finished Origination.
long night sorry. I meant to say it's the only series that I'd consider perfect.
It's okay, I learned something new today. And yes, ARIA is indeed perfect.
Still haven't watched Natural and Origination. Just going to take it slow, take it slow, take it slow.
That's cool, different strokes for different folks.
