Aria The Origination
Perhaps one of the best anime out there is having it's own continuation, which is as you can see the title of that anime is in the title.
Amano-sensei is perhaps one of the few mangaka's that truly understand the genre 'Slice of Life', in my own personal experiences when I ask someone what anime they think of when they hear 'Slice of Life', the response is almost always Aria.
Before I go any further, this isn't another review as I can leave the actual reviews portion to MAL, to take care of that for me. However, when the season is over I will give my own review, and in this blog a 'Season End' post.
The first episode of Aria the Origination has just aired this past week, however we won't see a quality sub of it until after the 23rd of January 2008.
The reason being is that CrystalNova will be awaiting for the official lyrics released on CD in Japan, to ensure accuracy of OP and ED song translation. Isn't that the type of sub you want? ;)
This will also be the very last season of ARIA because in April 2008, Amano-sensei will publish the very last volume (Vol. 12) of ARIA. Taking this into account, it's believed that ARIA the ORIGINATION will be around 13 episodes long.
One belief as for why Amano-sensei has decided to end it now, is because the last of her two real life cats (ARIA; the other being HIME) has just recently passed away. No one knows if the two are connected, as such a thing isn't confirmed by Amano-sensei herself, but maybe she thought it was time to put the two to rest.
When ARIA the ORIGINATION is finished, I'll make a (Season End) blog. If you haven't watched the first season ARIA the ANIMATION, please check it out (and ARIA the NATURAL for that matter), it might be 'slow' but it's worth it. Until then, enjoy everyone!
P.S. - If you're a fan of ARIA, send a friend request to me! I'd love to meet other fans.
