Well, a nice ending to a nice anime =)

Despite the lack of any deep plot, I very much enjoyed watching this. I'll have to watch the second season in a little while.

BTW, is it just me, or was that "Al the Gnome" guy never introduced before the final episode? =/

What a masterpiece, it's an anime you could really unwind to.
And it's one of those series where you could pick out any episode to rewatch and enjoy it again.

He made an appearance before, but it was very brief. I think it was just Akari talking to him for a few seconds. Don't remember which episode, though.

Pretty nice series. So relaxing. I'll definitely watch the next seasons.

This was a great anime :)
I loved how in the last episode they re-introduced everyone and celebrated New Year's Eve together -- which in my opinion was the best way to end ARIA The ANIMATION~ Totally loved this anime :)



Amazing sig set thanks to -DraGonZ-

Indeed it was a befitting ending to a very calm anime, tranquil to the last moment, the countdown in Italian initially surprised me but I guess it was to be expected. I guess it's on to Aria the Natural for me :3!

I think it was it the "President Aria Hero" episode ^^

Gosh... so many thoughts... but as for now... though it's the middle of February:

Auguri! Buon anno!

THIS IS THE MOST PEACEFUL SERIES EVA!!

Very nice anime, kinda lagged in bits, but overall an enjoyable watch. Looking forward to the sequels, the third season in particular I hear is very good.

7/10

I really enjoyed this anime. It was very relaxing and had a nice feel to it. The characters were great and it had plenty of funny moments.

I'm looking forward to watching the other two seasons.

I'm commenting the whole series alongside with the single episode, so here goes.

Definitely one of the better series i've seen. I had this warm, peaceful feeling all way through. And it lasted some time after finishing, too. Characters are so overly innocent and cute that it only enhances the feeling. So called "story" goes on very lowly and new characters are introduced in good pace.

This last episode all in all succeeded in concluding the series, or rather this season, in proper manner and now i'm certain i want to watch both sequels.

WTF IT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE AN HAPPY ENDING FOR THEM BUT WHY AM I FEELING SAD? WHAT THE FUK MAN? AM I SAD BECAUSE IT'S OVER AND THIS IS JUST TEARS OF JOY? Maybe, just maybe...

Okay si it was very freaking awesome to see Ai again. After 11 episodes without Ai, we finally get to see her again and hear her very wonderful voice. AI-CHAN YOU'RE SO AWESOME. It's also good to see that cat that Akari helped in the previous episode. From the looks of it, the cat was happy. YESSS SUCCESS!

What made me smile was when everyone gathered up for the new year festival. It's good to see them all together. It's like a one big happy family. I wish Earth is like Aqua. =\ So peaceful and calm. Oh, and I just noticed that they've been using italian theme for a while, and I just noticed that now, lol.

AUGURI BUON ANNO! Now onto the next season. :3

For being a complete slice of life series, I really enjoyed the animation. It's very relaxing and a refreshing departure from the usual fast paced anime I'm used to. Based on the ratings, it will only get much better from here on. Can't wait 'til I reach origination.

Really nice.
My favourite part of the show was probably the music, while my least favourite were the characters' catchphrases. Akira's "Ehh?" is one of the most annoying sounds ever. Still, great show.

New Year's Eve at Neo Veniczia looks like a lot more fun than at Times Square!
This was a definite change of pace anime and I enjoyed it very much. And it is nice to know that there is an audience for this kind of anime.
I give it 8 out of 10-worth re-watching.

A nice, soothing, and relaxing anime. I liked watching this.

Anyway, I found it funny how the gnome guy was randomly introduced.

This is how slice-of-lifes should be done.
Beautiful atmosphere, characters, and soundtracks, with a perfect pacing.
Though I do want to get to season 3 quickly

This. Also, for me the beginning of this episode was booring, but, as always, the rest was nice. I give the show 9 out of 10.

Makes me feel good about being a human being. I'm not really sure what to feel after watching Aria. There's very shows that I've sat through that have been as relaxing and peaceful as this one. I think it was the music that pulled me through. Been loving and following Round Table/Nino for a while now and the OP is just... so godly.

Onward to season 2! O gorilla banana(?)!

I came into this expecting a masterpiece, and it sadly didn't live up to my expectations. Not a bad anime at all, though.

Lately, I've been fighting a bout of depression, so all the talk about the world being such a beautiful place to live in, and Akari's sappy lines had the adverse effect of pissing me off unfortunately. Maybe I picked a bad time to watch a relaxing anime like this? Speaking of which, everyone keeps on mentioning how Aria is relaxing, soothing, calming, etc. Uhh, that's great? It does have that feel, for sure, but it can be slow and - for lack of a better word - boring at times.

That being said, the world-building has been great so far, and since it makes me want to learn more about the world these characters inhabit, I know it's doing something right. The setting is nice as well, being a pseudo-Venice and all.
Episode 11, in particular, was the best(some personal resonance). I also liked the one with President Aria, even though I know most people hated it...

The Natural and Origination seasons seem to have much higher scores than the first season, so maybe I'll finally get why Aria is critically acclaimed and loved by most.
