5 stars isn't enough for the best of the three series set.


Sato certainly wanted to bring the Aria franchise to a close with perfection. The art quality not only returns, but surpasses expectations. It's anime at its greatest, and masterpiece doesn't even come close to describing it.

The series packs one of the best emotional punches I've seen in a very long time, making the journey of watching the three girls very rewarding. One episode in particular was so fantastically done, it brought me to tears of happiness.

Without doubt, this is the best of the trio, and is highly recommended for every anime fan and their family.

I'm not afraid to say this 13 episode series has set a bar I doubt I'll ever see in anime for quite some time. Sato certainly deserves many accolades for bringing fans an exceptional closing to this series.

Aria-Best Of The Best!!


This last part of Aria brings the show to one of the most satisfying conclusions I've seen. It's kind of bittersweet seeing Akari, Aika, Alice, Alica and the rest of the cast concluding our visit to this wonderful world as they move ahead with their lives but at the same time reminiscing over all the wonderful times we've had with these characters. This is a show and world that will be missed-at least we got the 3 Avvenire ovas as a final gift.

A Wonderful Conclusion


Every season of ARIA has managed to have its own unique tempo that harmonizes the overall feel of a progressing journey. And in Origination, as Akari and her friends finally become Undines, the finale is spectacular through-and-through. Many of the early episodes still maintain the everyday, slice-of-life feel, but we also get this feeling of looming change. And the result is both heartwarming and tearjerking. I empathized a lot with Akari's worries at the end, as she struggles with the knowledge that she will no longer be living with Alicia, and that she won't see her friends as often. Yet there is a sense of celebration through it all, the feeling that this is the start of another great adventure. This tone of personal growth means that, out of so many anime series I've watched, this is one I want to sit down and watch with my kids one day. It's a beautiful story that made a positive difference in my life, and this is something I can keep coming back to again and again.
