16 more minutes until they re announce Aria.
>>16 more minutes until they re announce Higurashi
Nah, the counter glitched last night leading to a blank page with "aria" in the url.
Fail of the year nobody will buy it anyway
Yeah, it's not like it's a must-buy like Emma.
Fuck you I'd gladly buy Aria.
Like hell. I'll buy it. I'll buy your copy too.
You speak filthy lies.
I'd buy Aria faster than Akari rowing backwards.
Well is there enough of "you" outhere?
T-1 minute and counting
What's the page?
I'm standing by as well.
HAHAHA OH WOW
whoo, good thing i already downloaded this shit
Fall 2008 here I come.
so what's the page, and what was revealed?
Wasnt Aria that anime from the 90s?
Aria will be a shining gem in my collection.
I'd buy Aria. That's how awesome it is.
I wanted to try this series but it doesn't look manly enough.
IT RELEASES ON MY BIRTHDAY
You best be jokin nigga.
It's actually lemons.
no one is going to buy this boring shit.
its aimed at 40+ year old japanese salesmen who work 18 H's a day.
For some reason the page won't load using Firefox. But comes up slowly with IE.
Sub only Dvds
You're either trolling, or a retard.
I'm going to go with the latter.
Why would I be joking? Is my statement about how it doesn't look manly somehow funny?
Id work them 18 Hs a day, if you know what I mean
Thank you, I was wondering why the site wasn't loading in Firefox.
Season 1 box set - September 30th
Future releases - coming soon
Probably since the buyfags and ariafags among us just gangraped the page.
Sub only, the complete season in one box set, Aria...
A winning combination.
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.
preorders are available on rightstuf's website.
Stand up bitch
I will spend up to 60 dollars on this. Hopefully it doesn't cost that much.
Looks like it will cost between 40 and 50.
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.
Ah shit, one of the fav comics of my youth!
Anyone knows where I could find these in English?
$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?
Their website is crawling, but their billing server is just slow.
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.
How does that even follow? You are weird, /a/.
Best news ever. Summer should just begin already so I could go work my ass off and get money to buy Aria and marimite.
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.
Aria is my favorite series of all time and I hated mai-hime/otome
Way to fail faggot
If that was a troll attempt, you would have been better off to use MariMite instead.
This should be even cheaper at DVDPacific
the fuck you guys work where you can watch animu
I'mma preording mah Aria
So what's Aria about anyway? Like compare it to another anime so I can get a better picture of it.
Then it wouldn't be a troll, it'd just be mostly true. Except the douchebags bit
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.
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.
Oh, I like that comparison.
$38 for 5 hours of Aria seems pretty reasonable.
it says season one I don't they have the rights to the other two seasons.
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. The box set for the first season, ARIA the Animation, is scheduled for September 30, 2008, and already up for pre-order via the official series site. 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!"
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.
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.
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.
Sounds like someone from the AOD forums.
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.
Guess it's this one
FUNimation got Higurashi and Kai.
where'd you see that?
This calls for some RAAAAAAAAAAAAGE.
your word against AoD, and.. I'll take AoD's word.
oh fuck i'm in /a/,back to /b/ with me.
Anyway, all that aside, hooray.
OK I lol'd
no subs for season three now >>11335140 fuck
