Aria the Animation

Quote:

Aqua and Aria take place in the early twenty-fourth century, in the city of Neo-Venezia on the planet Aqua—formerly Mars, which was renamed after being terraformed into a habitable planet covered in oceans. Neo-Venezia, based on Venice in both architecture and atmosphere,[10] is a harbor city of narrow canals instead of streets, traveled by unmotorized gondolas.

At the start of Aqua, a young woman named Akari arrives from Manhome (formerly Earth) to become a trainee gondolier with Aria Company, one of the three most prestigious water-guide companies in the city. Her dream is to become an undine, a gondolier who acts as tour guide (see Terms below). As she trains, Akari befriends her mentor, Alicia, trainees from rival companies, Aika and Alice, and others in the city. Aqua covers her arrival on Aqua and early training as a Pair, or apprentice, while Aria continues her training as a Single, or journeyman, culminating in the graduation of her, Aika, and Alice as full Prima undines.

Each chapter is a slice of life episode of Akari's exploration of the worlds of gondoliering, Neo-Venezia, and Aqua itself. Amano frequently uses several pages of lush art to depict an environment, showing the wonder of both everyday activities as well as one-of-a-kind events. It is very similar in tone to Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō.[10][11]
In my opinion...
IT'S THE GREATEST SHOW EVAR.
Okay but yeah, it's a really nice and slow pace show. It calms and soothes the soul, it enlightens the lost, it brings a lost world we all long for and gives a slice of heaven.

But basically it's a show about life, and after watching shows that are full of action and out of world phenomenom ( boy I suck at this )

Yeah Il'l get miyuu to post something q_q ./wrist

This is a relaxed, laid-back slice of life series about the little things in life like eating, cooking, and other seemingly mundane everyday activities. The animation, which is produced by HAL animation, is quite smooth and detailed. Having said that, the character design is a bit of a let-down. It's definitely not as good as Amano Kozue's manga design. Thankfully this is pretty much compensated by beautiful-looking background illustration. In general, I like the way the series invokes a calm and easy take on life. If real life is like this, I think it'll be far more enjoyable. Anyway, judging from the first episode, it seems the series will retain its episodic nature just like the manga version of the story.

The episode itself begins with a shot of a cat-look-alike creature poking its head through a window. A few minutes later, the cool breeze ends up awakening Akari, causing her to wonder when she actually opened the window. It doesn't take long, however, before she realises that the cat was the one who opened the window. After breakfast, another girl called Alicia bids goodbye to Akari and begins to ride a Gondola. Once Alicia has left, Akari decides to pick up an incoming call. She, however, becomes disappointed when she realises that the caller is a guy called Akatsuki. Akatsuki is equally unhappy because he made the call to listen to Alicia's voice on the answering machine but he can't do that now since Akari picked up the phone.

JC 06-18-2008 06:30 PM

Friends have told me about this series, but so far it just looks simple and basically doesn't seem like it'll have a plot until the next season.
Also, is this series in standard definition or HD >_>? The screenies look 4:3

Sheep 06-18-2008 06:37 PM

Yes I'm edible, but I like to not be eaten sometimes, because I'm not unlimited ;-;

I only like to use Crunchy as a quick preview, I go to torrent for 720p quality if I can find it. I also usually let series finish first before I watch them, cuz sometimes you run into those awesome animes and get tired of waiting, same for manga D:

Miyuki 06-18-2008 06:39 PM

I have complete set of season 1 @_@...and then I lost 2 season 2 ;;

Tea 06-18-2008 06:57 PM

Senike 06-18-2008 07:10 PM

lol because thats what was in front of me.. was too lazy to scrounge around for the 1st season. in any point in a show, i can usually get a feel of how it was by watching a couple of episodes of it. It just didn't grab me like some of the other ones i'm watching now..

Nanaya 06-19-2008 01:01 AM

Lol. I just recently downloaded all of Aria. (Animation, Natural, Origination, and OVAs Arietta) <3 torrents.

It's just a calming anime when you don't really feel like watching other series.

nope Ai's not a single yet. that's just when she is helping out at ARIA company, season 2 episode 1 i think.. o.o

ARIA is currently the best anime i've ever watched(out of 50+ series). the character development, theme, music, graphic, and plot(season 3 mostly) is top class.

Waffles 06-21-2008 08:11 PM

Ah, thanks Sheep, I was wondering what the series was about after you kept telling me to go watch it XD. *goes and watches*

Senike 06-23-2008 02:14 PM

I like Aika with her new hairstyle.

Anyone noticed that nearly EVERYONE in this series's names start with A?

illhul 06-24-2008 01:53 AM

it's everyone, even woody lol.

Kotarou 06-26-2008 06:41 PM

This anime needs more romance. <_</ B> More AkarixAkatsuki/AlxAika, etc.

On the other hand, it's still a pretty damn good watch 8D *continues watching*

khyle 06-26-2008 07:09 PM

it's a very laid back animé, fun to watch throughout the series ^__^
gotta love their chibi form / weird facial expressions XD
