Thank God they got Choro Club and Juniichi Satou back for this. The main reason why this anime adaptation even works is the unearthly soundtrack and deeply researched Venice setting.

I was kind of hoping for more un-aired Navigation content, like they did with Arietta but I guess an original story is also fine.
I still don't get the appeal of adult Alice, though. Without the dekkai spam she's just a brat.

their movies have better schedules than their tv series so i think there's no worry although there's a chance the epidemic will affect it though.

also the director worked with JC before so it'll be easy to gather his friends on it since some of them worked on the series before and some of them worked with JC in 2010s.




It is affected already as it was pushed from December.

Nice we finally got a teaser trailer but as expected it got a short delay apparently due to tthe virus but that was to be expected. I'm really looking forward to have another journey in this beautiful world.

Sadly anything we get of her will likely be only a recording because both of her voice actresses (the actual VA and the singer responsible for the songs) have already died.


It weas already announced that despite using pre-records for Avvenire, they re-casted her for the movie. Though, the singing will be still pre-recorded probably as the singer who sang all songs also died.

Oh no, not JCS. HFM was impressively dedicated to this series while JCS is mostly animation equivalent of junk food.


They did a good job with Amanchuu (another work by the same mangaka and director).

I presume, the main reason they changed the studio is because Jun'ichi Sato went freelance after the previous studio was sold to Graphinica and producers wanted him to work on this one.

Seems like Alice will be the center of focus so I'm triple hyped now!

Any Aria is good Aria. I can't even imagine how badly a studio would need to mess up in order to make it bad. Either way, the director and music composer are the same, so it should be the same quality in those respects. For the animation and art, based off the teaser trailer, there shouldn't be much to worry about. Can't wait to see what Aria the Crepusculo does to add to the characters and lore.

Can't wait to get back to Neo Venezia. Girls are looking beautiful as ever.
