Aria brings happy tears TTvTT [possible Aria the Origination Spoilers]
O_O O_O O_O O_O
Having just completed Aria the Origination, episode 9.. I am both shocked and joyful! (Still have a few more eps and then the next series >.<) I've always had Aria in mind as one of my top anime and manga. The uniqueness of a slice-of-life show with a very different side of storytelling, beautiful music and lovable characters. [After getting the Aria episodes at the LAN, I can finally watch Aria completely ;_;]
The Aria series started as a manga in 2001 by Kozue Amano. Kozue-sensei has always possessed the great ability to communicate directly to the reader, using both pictures and words to open the door to a new world. This level of creativity, detail and sincerity has earned sensei a great name in the anime and manga world.
The manga has been published in two sections:
There are three anime series at current:
Aria the Animation
Aria the Origination
Aria the Natural
Other forms of media have been produced:
Aria drama cd collection
Another part of Aria's popularity is the music used within. The soundtrack is composed by Senoo Takeshi, who is also known for the music in Himawari! and it's second season Himawari!!
Artbooks, figurines, plushies, wristbands and other merchandise has also been made, although some would be hard to locate due to its high demand. It must be noted that due to it's storytelling technique and pace, Aria may stir very different feelings in its viewers.
For those of you who are fans of the anime, manga and drama cd's, please share your thoughts and if you'd like, pictures of your merchandise m(_ _)m
That ends this post
'Til we next meet,
