Right Stuf's Nozomi Entertainment Licenses ARIA Anime
Posted on: Thursday, May 1, 2008
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!
I like this show so much...but I don't exactly know why.
Aria the Animation 13 Eps
Aria the Natural 26 Eps
Aria the Origination 13 Eps
Aria? I liked it better when it was called Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
And this is why RightStuf is the best licensor going.
OP here I pre-ordered with standard US postal Shipping for a 40 dollar total for the whole first season.

Rumor has it that they're finishing up the licenses for the other two seasons.
Aria the Animation 13 Eps
Aria the Natural 26 Eps
>Aria the OVA: Arietta 1 Ep
Aria the Origination 13 Eps
I dont know why but is this really a popular?
Very, very popular. Both the Manga and Anime.
I hope HnK gets finished subbing the last 3 eps before they announce I want to see my subs before I pre order the DVD and wait for many months.
Aria was never overly popular.
Amen, ARIA and Marimite have been licensed. This has been a very, very good year.
HnK announced shortly after the licensing announcement this afternoon that they weren't going to finish Origination. We'll have to see what Hitode and CrystalNova are doing.
It's popular it's just people are not faggots over it like they are for many series
I'd imagine the OVA would be a thing to tack onto the last season.
Over at the AOD forums, the speculation is that the OVA will be included in the ORIGINATION box set.
What's Aria the Animation about?
aw fuck, I was going to watch it too on streaming sites, now it's going to be deleted
Pretty weak, since that season has yet to be announced but HnK are overly anal. Perhaps anon will finish it up, it's only 3 episodes Crystal Nova will never get it done before we have DVDs LOL.
IDK, but I'll try to watch it
As story descriptions can be found else where, I'll focus on what that doesn't tell you. It's a 'healing type' show, and as someone stated earlier here, it's one part high school growth (minus the high school) and one part landscape/architecture/cloud porn.
Pretty girls rowing boats.
Rowing slowly is preferred here.
It's about girls who dress well and live on a beach and paddles.
I am happy about this.
Anonymous can you sub the last three episodes of Aria the Origination?
The terraformation of Mars has gone totally wrong! Martians trapped for eons in the Martian ice have been released and are raising unholy terror on the settlers of the red planet. Now, NASA, along with the UN, have decided to fight back! They have formed the UNDINE corps (Underwater Nautical Divers Intercepting Nasty Evil), beautiful women with psychic abilities who by day masquerade as tour guides in an elaborately recreated Venice, but by night are taking back the planet for humanity!
Meet, Akari Mizunashi, the latest recruit from earth to join the corps. Accepted at an astonishing age of 15, this highly gifted girl has been assigned with ARIA Company to further her advanced abilities under the direct watch of Alicia Florence (one of the three Water Fairies, women who are said to have mental abilities only second to God.)
Aika S. Granzchesta, a member of Himeya Company, is saved from underwater peril by Akari during a joint operation. Strong bonds of friendship soon follow between Aika and Akari. However, can this strong bond of fellowship withstand the jealousy of Aika's beloved stepsister, Alice.
Can anyone tell me if Hitode is better than AEN? I like CrystalNova's subs best but they are SLOW as always and seem to be stalled in fact.
Hitode can't encode or translate.
Alice Carrol (a member of Orange Planet, a corp surrounded in secrecy) is Aika's beloved stepsister from her father's third marriage. She enlisted when she came of age to follow in the footsteps of her 'sis-sis'. However, what is the dark secret hidden within her bosom? And to what depths will she sink in her jealousy of Aika and Akari's friendship?
I'm reminded of another copypasta that results in a BAD END for each of them and Earth successfully returning Mars to its barren state. I think out of the three, Aika was the only one who managed to escape to Earth.
I will have to dl the latest ep they have released to see how bad this train wreck is.. I noticed it not Hitode-AEN it's just Hitode on this one.
I notice Akari's new Gongola shrunk back to normal size in Aria the Origination. When she first got it it was a full sized one as this screenshot from Aria the Natural shows.
There seem to be two kind of black gondolas from what I can gather.
Blade thingy on the prow = Full sized
Latern/Knob looking thing on the prow = smaller
I think. Or it might be the QUALITY from the Natural.
To aid in the fight, advanced robotics were employed by DARPA to assist in the struggle. President Aria Pokoteng, a first generation unit belongs to ARIA Company. He is a true soldier, both on land and underwater.
It's possible they just stole HnK's sub for 7 and used the good ol' thesaurus.
Well Hitodes subs for 7 didn't seem that bad to me. The encode was kind of jerky here ant there but the translation seemed OK. Perhaps they willcontinue subbing it. AEN STUNK to high heaven I really didn't know about them until I had seen their subs.Fuck!they are BAD!
This Gondola does indeed appear smaller.
Somebody fund this right now. It should be an animated mini series created for Right Stuf's DVD extras.
This will be the first anime I actually pay money for in the 4 years since I bought azumanga and will be thoroughly more worth it.
Right Stuf is awesome. The Season release with sub only is the way to go. This and Marimite will be the first anime I have purchsed in over a year.
my animu dvd shelf will have four things:
I didn't even know about RightStuf until I heard they were licensing Marmite and I pre-ordered instantly, I would not have known about Aria either unless I had seen the thread on the leaked web page last night. Pre-ordered to be sure.
What is /a/ going to do once the DVDs arrive? I've only purchased anime that I haven't downloaded so this is a first for me
You will have to learn to use your DVD player and get use to those fugly DVD subs
Even though i've already watched this series?
I suppose you could set it on a shelf in a cool, dry place out of sunlight and admire the spines every once in a while.
Store it in a cool dark place.
RightStuff. They really deserve to use that name.
I wonder how much money Aria has earned over all?
To me, the story is really boring and not interesting at all. Guess Slice-of-life is not my genre...
Too bad for you. Aria is good for you.
Aria doesn't have a story
I love rightstuff for not dubbing anything
Holy shit they don't bother with dubs.
MUST GET JOB AND EARN MONEY TO BUY AND SUPPORT!
37.99 for the season + 3.00 media mail. 40 + change. You can do that picking up cans no need for a job.
Cool. I won't be picking up cans but once a birthday or christmas or freelance work or something is in proximity I'll acquire yummy DVDs.
Delicious fourteen year old.
She is 15 when she becomes a Prima.
Are you a neko?
You might want to join my neko forum
Add thread:exclude to any thread to stop script
it kind of bugged me that she became a prima so young I mean not only did she not goto high school but she got a full time job at 15? seriously what the fuck.
Compulsory education ends at High School so you can go right into a training for a trade. She did Middle School and training together so Alice was able to become a Prima at 15. Akari and Akia became Pairs at 15 seemingly and they all trained for about the same time period.
Remember a school year on Aqua is 2X as long as on Earth. 3 years of Middle school = 6 years.
maybe I am just mad because it means the end is near for aira. oh god I don't want it to end the tears they won't stop flowing.
It's already over. Watch the raws because I don't see any subs coming soon now it's licensed
its not over for me because I haven't seen the last three eps yet. And some one will sub it eventually right? right? please tell me I don't have to wait for the season three box set.
You can fit Season 3 on one DVD and I bet that is what they do.
Embarassing comments are not allowed is like a dagger in my heart.
Deleting thread due to to much /b/ shit in /a/
