THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This was a miracle~

Just watched this at the theater and it was glorious. They actually showed all 3 episodes. It was everything I remembered Aria to be and more. Never thought that a theater full of grown men would be trying to hold back their tears at the end.

Will post pics of the swag I got there when I get home.

I... I hate you now. We have to wait ages for the first episode alone, yet you've watched all three eps in one sitting.

Btw how long was it? 20 mins per ep?

No no no, you won't find it in the market, or even a store, no.

Try it first before others gotta get it publicly sooner or later!

Thank you.

I liked it, but it was a bit pity that they "mixed" old and new so much. It is not bad per se, but when you're limited to ~3x20 min it can become difficult to introduce/develop the new material/characters properly if you spend time on the old material.

I just watched it. Goddamn that took me back. When Undine started playing I started choking up I missed this show so much.

The scene where Alice/Akira/Athena meet was so beautiful. God ARIA is just as good as I remember it.

Can't wait for the next episode many months from now ;_____;

Beautiful series.... animation quality is so much better. And the soundtrack really gave me nostalgic feelings.

Not really many things happened. But the story itself was really aria. T_T

You can find it on Nyaa with only japanese and chinese subs, it's kind of easy to understand though

Amazing stuff, 10/10.

As a location hunter, they included the 4th bridge over the Grand Canal. The rail station is also a new background scenery that they used.

Insta-10/10.

Maybe none of you realized...
ALL the background in the ED is actually reused from all previous shows ( Animation, Natural, Origination ) got rendered in 1080p, not upscaled from the DVD.

If I'm ever reborn, I hope it would be in Japan, because I would kill for some of that sweet Aria swag.

BD for the first box set, season one dropped 4 days ago on Christmas Eve, which includes episode 1 out of 3 of the new Avvenire. Still going to be a long as wait for the west to get anything in English though :( But going by Rightstuf's track record, they'll likely release them eventually at an appropriate expensive ass price-point (given the Japanese releases go over $200 per box...FML).

Edit:
Just watched the first episode. And I was full of nostalgia tears. As short as it was (only a half episode; 16 minutes), I still loved it. I only wish there was a little less flashbacks, and more of the present (no pun intended), as well as making it longer, a full episode per episode instead of half.

1st episode already out with chinese sub.

Just took a glimpse of it, still waiting for eng sub. Aria in Bluray is just truly beautiful..
I hope the BD get released soon, so I can rewatch all aria series in BD.

Yes, awesome pass. And then she fell over in the boat :D

Not sure what I was expecting when I heard Ai first speaking, but then I realized she is older now. It's still Mizuhashi-san, just doing her job.

Oh wow, just hearing the OST alone was enough to plaster a smile on my face from beginning to end.

This was so beautiful, I love the use of reflecting on the past to adapt the rest of the chapters not to mention the fact how much the art has improved! Makes me want to watch the series all over again, but I think I'll wait until each OVA has been released before I do so.

I just watched this episode twice. The 2nd time with the voice actress commentary from Minagawa Junko, Ohara Sayaka, and Hazuki Erino.

Their conversation about missing the world of Aria was beautiful. One of them said she was on the train listening to music when Undine came on through shuffle, and suddenly she was crying on the train.

I'm in tears, myself.

That's all.

See you guys in 3 months for the next one.

Even the subs brought back memories. I noticed that the subbers really tried to put out quality to match this ep. 10/10 even if it was just a flashback

AMAZING EPISODE!!!

I'm totally surprised Alice let her hair grow, like Alicia's.

Flashback was nice. Akira was right, you have to appreciate the time you have together because moments like the one where she threw the present rarely occur. As Primas their time is very time consuming. Alicia's smile at the end pretty much summed up just how happy she was to see the Akira and Athena.

If only this show could run 100+ episodes, it's the perfect relaxing show.

I feel like crying. My favourite anime of all time. It made such an impact in my life and my view on life itself. To be able to experience it all over again... I dunno how can I explain.

ARIA is the best thing happened to me as an anime fan.

That's some superb animation this time around. I'm a bit disappointed that these first two episodes are just adaptations of manga chapters not previously adapted, but I simply can't wait for the original third episode. It's just too bad that we'll have to wait a months to see it.

The world of Aria is so beautiful, every time I watch an episode of Aria it always takes me away to this whole new world. I really wish more anime like Aria gets made. This series is seriously a masterpiece in its own right.

LOVED the first episode.

So it's Alicia-san birthday, Akira being a tsundere but truly a great friend, that gift throw though, Aqua really is the planet of miracles. Akari really rockin on that long hair, Ai became a single, Aria still a clever cat making friends with a bird lmao.

The animation really leveled up a bit, the OST & the Animation OP is still there, such nostalgia to the ears, really loved the ED especially the backgrounds display just gave me nostalgia of the past events happened during the whole series.
