Right Stuf, Inc. and Nozomi Entertainment to Release Aria The Origination
On March 2, 2010 Aria The Origination DVD collection, which includes the final third season and OVA, will drop into stores and cyber outlets everywhere.
Generally well received, this series is based upon the best-selling manga of Kozue Amano and directed by Junichi Sato (Sgt. Frog, Sailor Moon).
Okay, I have to quote the press release on this one.
“As winter melts into spring, Akari, Aika and Alice continue to work hard to become Neo-Venezia’s top gondoliers. Aika starts to take on more responsibility around Himeya; Alice travels up the challenging canal near Hope Hill; even Akari spends a day working on a huge gondola called a traghetto! But there's still so much to learn... and the final test to become a Prima, which once seemed so far off in the future, might not be so far off anymore.”
I think I can hear the violins and heartstrings reverberating already!
Now don’t get me wrong. As you well know, I love anime sans robots, beasts, and bloodshed. Hell, I’ll take a dramatic anime feature, a chick-flick I dare say, over the vast amount of repetitive sewage being pumped out by the Hollywood giants these days – oh the irony of the drunk bum pissing on the Hollywood walk of fame!
After I get it, I’ll let you know more.
