According to the official website, director Sato Junichi's new OVA "One off" was announced to be released this year. Car manufacturer HONDA has been cooperating with the production. HONDA will display a wrapped motorcycle featuring the anime at Osaka and Tokyo Motor Cycle Show.
A slice of life of high school girls in the early summer. Shiozaki Haruno is a 17-year-old girl who loves her motor cycle, HONDA's Giorno. She lives in remote highlands and longs for a vivid life in a city. Encounters with people staying at Haruno's parents' boardinghouse encourage her to step forward to her dream.

Since the director is known for Aria, I have my hopes up :P
What, and you don't think Aria is a very moe-inducing show for many people? It sure is for me (in the real meaning of the word). SatoJun is a master of this stuff. But I'm not expecting too much from this. It's hard for me to get excited about short OVAs like this, even from a great director like SatoJun.
What I like in Aria is not moe, it's the peacefulness.

I'm not sure if you're agreeing or disagreeing with me. But I never said they were the same thing.
Ok, let's put it this way:
Sato Jun'ichi can do moe right.
What is attractive in Aria for me is not moe. Otherwise I would have had the characters as my favourites. It's the "healing" aspect of it. They are two concepts that are not contradictory, but I said one is the selling point for me. Not the other.
Eew. She loves her motorcycle? Does that mean she's butch?
I don't find it attractive (my sexist mind does not find it attractive, I should say) when females ride motorcycles.
Still, hopefully it's more entertaining than the Tamayura TV series...
Well, I'm not even sure I'm going to watch this one, so I really don't care.
