A new anime for the healing Aria series, titled Aria the Avvenire, was announced to screen during an event on September 26th. The type of the new anime is still unknown. Original staff members Junichi Sato (director, series composer) and Reiko Yoshida (script writer) will also be working on the new anime.

This announcement is the first part of the 10th anniversary project Ao no Curtain Call, celebrating 10 years since the first TV broadcast. It was up briefly on the official site on February 3rd, but was quickly taken down.

The Aria series received 3 seasons, Aria the Animation, Aria the Natural, and Aria the Origination between 2005 to 2008, with several specials and OVA episodes also released. A BD box of the TV series was also announced.

btw, does origination already cover all of the manga chapters?


Nope, there were a few chapters left out, like the Marriage of the Sea and conclusion to Cait Sith

Has anyone else seen the new preview?

Well, this at least confirms that it'll be taking AFTER Origination since you can spot out Ai along with Akari's new look at the end of Origination


Everyone else is the same, and the website shows Akari both ways.
My guess is that Akari is training Ai and has flashbacks of the old times.
Hopefully there's some new music made for this new project. I guess the teaser confirms Choro Club, but the song shown is just the same old one.

Every time I start to lose some interest in anime..sequels keep dragging me back :P

This anime always reminds me of Summer... hot and windy.....wants to go lazy and sleep the whole noon time.

Just hope it isn't an full meter.
I mean, that would be great, but we would have to wait forever. The final screen of the pv says something about the format, doesn't it?

I heard they're just going to borrow her voice from previous series, like her laughs and maybe very brief lines. They're probably going to give her as few lines as possible in this new series.

Yep, that's what I heard as well.
There's no new VA listed (for both singing and acting roles) anywhere, so either they gonna make her appearances VERY brief where there's no need for dialogue, or do some remixing with older records.

Looks like Alicia is back in her gondolier outfit. I guess she changed her mind




I'm still thinking it'll just be an OVA to commemorate the anniversary of Aria and its blu-ray.

Well, even if it is an OVA, I'm hoping it'll get at least 2-3 episodes. More Aria is always nice.

If you go to the website, it has Athena's seiyuu as Kawasumi Tomoko listed:

Problem is, she passed away a couple of years ago, so I'm wondering how they're going to feature her. Wonder if they're gonna pull a Tupac and grab prerecorded clips from awhile back or something. Anyone have any idea?

Wowow..
So God is for real after all.

Like Usagi Drop, I used to watch 1 ep every night before going to bed. Seems like this might be a movie, though? Either way, cannot wait

How did I not see this announcement sooner? This is such good news..*sigh* this made my week, really. <3 Now to wait until it's out.

Sigh I'll probably have to endure a certain someone's endless rambling about pink haired blobs rowing boats on some highly glorified sewer system again.

I've been rewatching 1 episode per week throughout 2015 so far and I'm just so overjoyed beyond words that there is a new adventure to await me when I finish again.
