What is Aria about?
Akari Mizunashi, at the age of 15, has left everything behind to travel to a sparkling planet covered in water, Aqua, formerly known as Mars. By the 24th century, humans have found a way to colonize the formerly uninhabitable planet.
More than anything, Akari wants to be an "undine" - a female gondolier who navigates the canals of the Aquan city of Neo-Venezia. The city itself is a faithful replication of Manhome's (Earth) city of Venice. To make sure that residents and tourists alike get the most from Neo-Venezia's many wonders, companies offering guided tours via gondola were formed, one of which is named Aria Company.
As she begins her training with the prestigious Aria Company, will she be up to the challenges that await her on the path to achieve her dream?
Aria: The Animation’s gentle poetry will take you to the truth: It’s all about savoring each moment of the journey along the way. Trailer:
Episode 1 for you to sample (this is the Japanese with English Subtitles version):
Directed by Junichi Sato, who also directed Sailor Moon, Princess Tutu, Magic User's Club, Kaleido Star, Tamayura, amongst others, and has also been involved with almost 100 programs in various capacities, including series composition, storyboard, theme music, supervision, and scriptwriter.
The show is based on a series of manga by Kozue Amano. Aria's genre is often referred to as slice-of-life, in that the storylines are not rushed and more time is spent on exposition and visuals. Sato-san often refers these titles as "Healing Anime."Click To Go To Kickstarter Page
