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.

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.

I'd imagine the OVA would be a thing to tack onto the last season.
>>
>>11344824

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

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.

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!

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.
>>
>>11345866
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.

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.

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.
