FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAN.
I WANT A MUSIC CD FOR THIS NOW. The music to this is really great. have they lost there minds not to give us a music cd for this. Please rightstuff have them make one. heck make it yourself I WILL BUY IT. i want a cd with music from all three series.
This is in my top 10 all time anime list-Junichi Sato was involved in this and it shows. Mars has been terraformed and a city called Neo Venice has gondoliers-Akari comes from earth (now known as Manhome) to be one and enter an apprenticeship with the Aria Company which is the smallest of of the 3 main gondolier outfits. So begins a whimiscal series which stretches through 52 episodes and one ova as Akari learns how to trade her craft and all the characters we meet along the way-it's truly a wonderful journey and one you should experiance. A truly unique series-not to be missed.
The wait is finally over, ARIA the Origination is here! This is a powerful ending to a fantastic series!
ARIA has been a great series from the very first episode and the high-quality continues to the very last episode. This season is easily the most emotionally powerful of the three seasons. ARIA now occupies a position of honor in my DVD collection!
The music, animation, writing, acting and characters are all truly outstanding. I've actually bought the import ARIA soundtrack CDs!
This is the best anime around by far! In fact, I do not think it is even possible to overstate just how great ARIA is because it is so outstanding.
Wonderful great and sad
I cant stress this enough if u don't have the first 2 series U need to get them now. i have already seen the ending of this series and cant wait to buy it. when i came to the final eps i felt like a friend was going away on a trip far away. i got so connected to the characters i missed them and wanted it to continue with new eps. but that's OK i can always watch it over and over again to remember the good times. but its always sad to see a great series end. and this is just that. i wish i could tell you how it ends . all i will say it ends with a new wind blowing and a very happy ending.
Come on now
The only complaint i have on this whole series is one major thing. And i really don't understand it at all. WHY THE HELL HAVE YOU NOT MADE A MUSIC CD FOR ALL THREE SERIES. I am angry. the music to this is just so great i want it with out the animation talking on over it. I WANT IT MAKE IT NOW DARN You. Rightstuff please I beg you make them make one get it I will Buy it PLZ.
A Wonderful Ending to a Great Series

Saying "goodbye" to a series you love is always difficult, and the third season of "Aria" is no exception to this. If anything finishing this series was even more difficult due to how much the series has meant to me, and to how wonderfully done the series finale was executed.
Once again, the writing, animation, voice acting, and music were all spot on. The easygoing atmosphere of "Aria" that I adore was always present, and the season became more enjoyable by examining and expanding upon different character's backstories and personal motivations.
It is difficult to watch a season that is so focused on endings, but even as it's ending "Aria" continues to look at the positives. The impression of this season is that stories do not necessarily "end", but rather new "beginnings" commonly fill their place. It is a bittersweet message, but an important one to remember.
If you love the "Aria" series as much as I do, you will not be disappointed by this series finale.
Aria the Origination was a beautiful culmination of endearing feelings, excellent storytelling, and memorable characters.
I cried. I cried some more. Then I sniffled a little before bawling my eyes out. Now, you might be thinking that it was out of sadness, but I can assure you that it was not. I cried because my little babies grew up. My little Alice got a big voice. My little Aika became extremely dependable. My little Akari improved her sculling (the right way). These three girls’ lives and the lives of the people around them were inspiring slices of their stories. Their personalities and skills grew. I watched them grow… and then they graduated on me! I felt like a dad watching his daughter go across the stage to receive her diploma as each one reached their goals. To say the least, I couldn’t hold all the feels.

I spent the last few days watching an episode of Aria each night before going to bed and it's worked wonders. I loved falling asleep right after venturing into Neo-Venizia with some of the most pleasant characters in anime history set to an amazing soundtrack. The only knock I have against is it is a big bulky for a 12 episode season and sometimes the dvd need some doing to be taken out, but not too much. It's nice having the art for each box plus the art booklet and OVA dvd.
Would very much recommend to anyone interested in this series.
