One of the great things about episodic shows like Aria is that OVAs don't actually seem out of place within the context of the overall story. This special is a great example of this, and a wonderful stand alone tale that actually adds to the overall show, something of an achievement given the glut of OVAs from popular series that are nothing more than filler and fluff. Now one could argue that this OVA is nothing more than fluff, but given the "feelgood" nature of the entire series I found this episode fitted into the world of Aria rather nicely.

Ah, all the nostalgia is coming back. Good times, good times.

This being a one-episode DVD special, one would think story would be complete filler. But then, this is a slice-of-life show, where things are episodic, and very few plotlines actually last.
Anyhow there isn't much to write about here without giving things away. Suffice to say it's about Akari's secret place.

Worthy of a DVD special. Animation is top notch, the background is as usual gorgeous, detailed and extremely accurate when compared to the real-life counterpart, and there are no errors as far as I've seen.

Exemplary, just like the rest of the Aria series. Every BGM piece read more
