comedy fantasy sci-fi slice of life


On the planet Aqua, a world once known as Mars, Akari Mizunashi has just made her home in the town of Neo-VENEZIA, a futuristic imitation of the ancient city of Venice. The technology of "Man Home" (formerly Earth) has not entirely reached this planet, and Akari is alone, having no contact with family or friends. Nonetheless, the town, with its charming labyrinths of rivers and canals, becomes Akari's new infatuation, along with the dream of becoming a full-fledged gondolier. Reverting to a more "primitive" lifestyle and pursuing a new trade, the character of Akari becomes both adventurous and heartwarming all at once.

Well, there are thousands of manga ever made, each of them has its proposal to introduce us. Some try to show us a story of overcoming, others a history of surrender. Some are complex, some are simple. They are all different, but they all are made so that you can have fun - trying to unravel the mystery, get excited - seeing that good fight, and maybe even relax - watching the daily life of someone living in a rural place . All sleeves try to fulfill its proposal, but not everyone can. Believe me, there are few manga that can meet your proposal. So, read more

For the purpose of this review, I’m going to write a review for both people who have watched the Aria anime already, and who have not and are only reading the manga.


Review for those HAVE NOT watched the anime:

Aria is a very nice and relaxing slice of life manga that definitely deserves reading.

One interesting thing about Aria is that it can be a bit hard to recommend to other people. Basically you follow the 3 main characters: Akari Mizunashi, Aika Granzchesta, and Alice Caroll as they work hard to become great undines… which are basically tour gondola rowers.

While that might seem a bit odd, read more

Both are the most superb slice-of-life that i have ever read. each manga has its own unique atmosphere and tells you wonderful storys that when they end you fell all fuzzy and warm inside.
Amanchu! is Amano Kozue's newest manga after the Aria series, so any Aria fan would be thrilled/enraptured to read the next series this fantastic mangaka has created. The main characters both have a sunny disposition that effects those around them, and the storytelling gives the same relaxed feeling as Aria. Plus, the settings take place mainly around water or water related activities!
