I woke up this afternoon with a raging erection for Mizunashi Akari. Does /a/ have it in for her too?
I had it in her already.
Man, I wish Aria wasn't over.
Every waking moment - which is pretty unhealthy. I don't recommend it.
DOES THIS MEAN THE PORN GOES AWAY FOREVER?!
I hope not.
Akari does little to nothing for me; Alice, Alicia, Athena and Akira are all far hotter than her.
(note the deliberate ommision of Aika since she's only marginally hotter)
There is one other candidate that really does it for me, but sadly, she only makes her appearance once (well, briefly in some subsequent chapters).
Whoops, didn't mean to spoiler that. Image is of Atora.
IT CAN'T END IT CAN'T
IT'S SUPPOSED TO GO ON FOREVER GODDAMMIT!
You got pictures of the other undine, the one from Himeya and the short hair?
Though I would have preferred the epilogue for the future of Aria company to have been an entire chapter by itself.
Anzu? Like, two counting the group images.
I'M GOING TO CRY
Oh balls, it seems you meant Ayumi.
Whatever you have would be most appreciated.
THE TRUTH EXISTS BEYOND THE GATES.
Unfortunately, that was all of it.
Thanks. She's already one of my favorites just because of her VA being Ryoko Shiraishi alone.
I'm afraid not.
WHY DID YOU TELL ME IT ENDED!
I'D RATHER HAVE BEEN A SLOWPOKE FOREVER!
So how exactly does it end?
Fuck yes, waking up to an Aria thread.
- Akari is left to manage Aria company on her own
- She takes Mr. Mailman on a Gondola tour (as promised waaaaay back), and reflects on how far she's come as an undine
- Back at Aria company, she thinks back on the days spent with everyone
- Aika is managing a Himeya branch to prepare for when she eventually inherits the company (Ayumi cameo).
- Alice has grown so popular as an undine that she tends to have a hectic schedule (Anzu, Atora cameo)
- Athena has begun a career as an opera singer, which cuts into her work as an undine. Initially, Alice had a problem with this, but seeing her performance, she lets it go.
- Akira has upped her status as an undine to LEGENDARY. Aika says that she's real competition.
- Alicia gets hitched and takes up a job at the Gondola Association full time. I suppose she still visits Akari from time to time.
- Woody has chikenz, Al and Akatsuki have both been promoted, Al grew taller, Aika x Al is pretty much confirmed, Akatsuki still pesters Akari from time to time.
- I think it's implied that Akari wasn't writing to anyone in particular
- TIME SKIP
- Jailbait Ai is the newest addition to Aria Company.
>>Alicia gets hitched
I shouldn't have read this since I'm only 10 or so episodes into the second series but that ending sounds somewhat depressing.
Lol, Kozue Amano even remembered to draw in the ring on her left hand. I thought she would forget and many would put that little detail behind them.
It actually kinda isn't. I just couldn't put this page into words - this is right after she is done thinking about the good ol' days. That smile of hers is very reassuring.
That's actually pretty satisfying end.
Post the other one!
WHO'S THE LUCKY FUCK THAT MARRIES ALICIA? Wait, how did she even MEET this mystery man? She spends all her time with Akari.
Akira has a pretty boring end. She already was legend.
Big brown girls really ARE the best
It's actually quite a good end. It wraps up everything quite nicely. Though who does Alicia get married to?
Never explicitly stated or shown. It's either:
b) One of the shitty shounen leads from Amano's other works.
Heterosexuality? In MY Aria? Fuck!
Who do you think?
>c) picture related.
Her other works are in the same setting?
It's me, anonymous.
Suddenly, awesome end!
Just to pour salt on the wound.
MOAR I BEG YOU MOAR
If it's you, IT'S ALL OF US!
So is she going to write a prequel about the colonial war?
No, her other works vary in terms of setting. Roman Club is fantasy (seinin I think) and takes place at a school, Crescent Noise is fantasy (shounen) and on hiatus (lulz, Aqua proved to be a bigger success).
Most of her one shots and shorts are along the lines of slice of life and fantasy (and scifi, I think).
Epilogue-Akari has such milf-appeal.
She actually REALLY does it for me.
WHO THE FUCK DID SHE MARRIED????!!!!!!!
The little interview at the end:
>Q: Fans have given tremendous support for a sequel. Is that a possibility?
>A: Er, how to say, I'm not sure at the moment.
I'm certain she probably isn't done with the planet Aqua itself, but one can dream.
The fact that they don't even show who Alicia is married too just dents what was a perfectly fine end.
I'd rather have it unshown than shown. What if we see the dude and that particular reader feels unsatisfied with the dude she picks.
It's Alicia. WTF sort of guy does she like? Better to leave it as is.
THOUGH AN ANON CAN DREAM, NO?
LOOK AT THAT SUIT, GODDAMN.
This thread makes me BAAAAAAW and RAAAAAGE at the same time.
It's better than just pulling out an AND SUDDENLY, MARRIAGE.
You're not alone. There are several Voyages on 2ch alone bitching about that detail.
>Q: The finale has left people with deep impression, when did you first think of the finale?
>A: I have thought of the scene ever since Aqua and then to Aria. It is the chapter which I wanted to draw most.
Well, can't deny she's put some thought into it. Maybe the tanks will have an extended epilogue.
So, the guy she married is an Anonymous?
Unless it's a person that's well known established in the series and who has had a relationship with Alicia steadily written throughout the show, I don't see how seeing the guy would give you any sort of closure.
It's better as it is.
It'd be best if she was revealed to be marrying Akira.
>It's Alicia. WTF sort of guy does she like? Better to leave it as is.
Good point. I would have RAGED myself drawing on the similarities of the male characters she's drawn over the years. Most of them fall under my category of NOODLY/BELTAN ZIPPERS/SHITSUX.
If they don't actually show a husband, I will assume a wife.
THAT'S the spirit.
It was Askeladd. You know she was going to pick a bearded, experienced viking man.
>It'd be best if she was revealed to be marrying Akira.
It better be
Maybe that´s it!!!!!!! Anon is on to something. Go boy, fetch it!
So consensus is she's hitched to Akira? Well, if that were the case, I suppose they both couldn't be Undine. It could work.
But she explicitly states it was a man who gave her the ring in the marriage to the sea chapter. Arguably, Akira is more of a man than any of us.
And just once, I would have liked to have seen long haired Aika again. Just one more time ;_;
Whoops, wrong image.
She is though. I thought we already knew that.
>>Arguably, Akira is more of a man than any of us.
no argument here
Perhaps Akira gave it to the Mailman with a letter which, apparently, delivers a persons heart. So technically Alicia received the ring from a male but it's originally from a female. There's still hope... right? ;_;
I'M GOING TO BAW IN THE CORNER NOW. THIS THREAD CONFIRMS MY SAD FEARS.
Milf-Akari is awesome. I HOPE DOUJINS APPEAR OF HER!
Maybe it was one of those "ring in the wine glass" proposals, from a waiter?
Now we're just pushing it. Though I still kind of agree with >>10250955 a little more.
>What if we see the dude and that particular reader feels unsatisfied with the dude she picks.
QFT. Better left to our imaginations - although in all likelihood, it would probably be ourselves (or Akira).
Oh fuck, you just reminded me of the candy guy from that episode of The Origination. What if they wrote his ass in for this reason? I shudder at the thought.
So, does Akatsuki ever get any Momiko sexings?
He's too busy being a fag with Woody.
Now I have diabeetus.
Enjoy your DIABEETUS.
SHE IS HUGE, WHICH MEANS SHE HAS HUGE GUTS!
Where one goes to drink away their sorrows.
RIP AND TEAR RIP AND TEAR RIP AND TEAR
HERE COMES THE NIGHT TRAIN CHOOOCHOOOOCHACHACHOOOO
Also, I watched Sketchbook based on Anonymous recommendation. It was very good.
Every time I see that image I desire for a crossover.
But there's 300 years seperating them.
Though I think the town in Sketchbook is supposed to be a fictional one in moonland.
I like them both.
YKK is better.
