Sub only, the complete season in one box set, Aria...

A winning combination.

>>11334122
Yes, President Aria is so manly that he makes Simon weep and wet himself.

Also, you have now convinced me that you are around 16 years old, or a shounen lead character.

Wonderful. Rightstuf takes my hard-earned money again. I'm glad to see things I actually want getting licensed so I can stop being a drain for once, and with Aria I'm set for my top 3 now -- all nice and dubless and reasonably priced.

>>11334150
Ah shit, one of the fav comics of my youth!
Anyone knows where I could find these in English?

>>11334166

$40.49 with economy shipping.

FOURTY ONE DOLLARS FOR THE ENTIRE FIRST SEASON OF ARIA? CONGRATULATIONS RIGHT STUF. MY FIRST BOX SET PURCHASE.

How is Aria anyway?

>>11334234

Their website is crawling, but their billing server is just slow.
>>
>>11334144
I guess I will try it then. If there is a man whose manliness surpasses Simon's then it is a must see.

And I am probably more in the shonen lead character category.

A wonderful, profound mystery.

Peaceful and lovely. If you like to pretend you fight bears on the internet, you probably won't like it. Then again, maybe you might.

I usually love calm, cute series like Aria, but I never could get into it for some reason. I was really hyped up when a friend gave me a volume of the manga, bated really didn't like it.

People who like Aria are the same douchebags who think My-HiME is good.

Aria is a wonderful series. I have occasionally had to debug problems with video playback, and it's one of the few anime series I can feel comfortable playing and watching at work while waiting for problems to show up.
>>
>>11334335
Aria is my favorite series of all time and I hated mai-hime/otome

Way to fail faggot
>>
>>11334335

If that was a troll attempt, you would have been better off to use MariMite instead.

This should be even cheaper at DVDPacific

It's not really about anything. But if I had to pick an overall theme, it would be about appreciating the little things in life.

It would have been more subtle.

The one it gets compared to most often is Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou. What the two titles share in common is a strong sense of "mono no aware," which roughly means living in the moment, because the moment will pass soon.

ARIA is sunnier because it is about mankind's dawn on a planet, YKK is about mankind's twilight.
>>
>>11334714
And both are made of more win than all the other series/manga combined.

They also have that "feel goodness", and positive view of mankind.
>>
FUCK, now the last 3 eps of Origination subs won't be released since HnK are moralfags. ;_;

I'll buy the entire Animation/Natural/Origination box sets, but I still want to see the last 3 eps. ;_;

Tough to compare to anything else. It's a "healing" series about some girls learning to be gondola tour guides on a replica Venice recreated on Mars after it's been terraformed. Setting is an idyllic utopia and the girls are pretty. That's it.

One part school slice-of-life, maybe, without the high school, and one part landscape/replica architecture/cloud porn.

Best compared to the manga Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (minus the apocalyptic theme), with stuff like Sketchbook or Marimite coming up at a distance.

>>11334714
Oh, I like that comparison.
>>
$38 for 5 hours of Aria seems pretty reasonable.
>>
>>11334782
it says season one I don't they have the rights to the other two seasons.
>>
>>11334939

Only Season One is available for pre-order. The other seasons, they state somewhere, will be forthcoming.

So does this shit ship to Europe? I'm interested.

"It's official! Right Stuf, Inc. and Nozomi Entertainment are pleased to announce the licensing of ARIA.

It will feature the entire 13-episode first season with Japanese audio and English-language subtitles, and there will be announcements about additional ARIA releases in the future!"
>>
>>11335036
usually individual sales ship anywhere, unless the seller has made some agreement with another licenser in the other region not to compete against them for sales.
Try, and if they allow the order then they must be ok with it.
>>
>>11335036
Yep.

Outside Canada and the US
Shipped by Mail Services - $10 for first + $2 each additional item. Shipped by Mail Services. Typical delivery time is 1-2 weeks due to customs.

"Aria.

Eh, I'm underwhelmed. Another Shoujo Ai series. How about some variety? Or how about actually COMPLETING To Heart. Or how about picking up one of the series that Geneon dropped, like Karin.

I'm sorely disappointed."

Which one of you Anonymous trolls is over there? I almost raged.

Awesome. Come September, I'll be grabbing it, though by then who knows where I'll be living.

How about using that old license on Violence Jack and actually releasing some good DVD releases unlike Manga Entertainment's old shitty version?

Haven't seen Aria yet, but being disappointed they licensed that and then suggesting they should have done tripe like Karin instead? I raged.
