Reviving this thread again Agreed with Tabris, the ending was super sweet and lovely. Ai's surprise was received very well (even though I saw it coming a mile off ), though I was surprised that Alice wasn't introduced, since she's never met Ai before either. Can't wait for Natural in April now. And as a parting gift, here's another 40 or so Aria images

Yeah I have to agree short haired Aika isn't as good as long haired Aika. As long as they don't touch my Alice I'm not too worried

i just hope it will give me that warm fuzzy feeling like other 'slice of life' animes have given me!

No worries, I'm always happy to share the Aria love

And yes, Aria does give that warm fuzzy feeling, more so than any other series I've watched in fact. The characters, the locations, the situations, it's all spot on perfect. And Akari's seiyuu needs a medal for portraying the character so well (this is only about her 3rd role ever, so I'm really looking forward to hearing her in other series in the future).

Watching President Aria in his little pullalong gondola in episode 2 during the flood made me squeal like the little girl I am.

'Awwwws! So cuuute!'

And that little old man in episod three made me giggle so hard I thought I was about to wet myself.

Just finshed watching the series,

=[ why is it only 13 eps long,

Great animation quality throughout and some good music, funny and easy going, i loved all the different personalities from the different characters, especially the 'comedy' faces. Even though there wasnt a plot, i feel like there was a great deal of character depth,

Hope there is a second season!

I just watched the final episode, and read through the thread. I'll post my final thoughts. I noticed that one of the techniques that Aria uses to keep itself subdued is that everytime any happentence arises that are potentially strong in emotions or dialogue, the characters involved goes into SD-mode. This serves to lighten the impact, thus always keeping the atmosphere soft.

Aria is one of those rare series that even though it is a wonderful show, I don't watch it immediately as a new episode comes out. My behavior for other shows is to obtain and watch it as soon as possible whenever a new episode appears. Not for Aria. When I feel stressed or frustrated by life, I find ways to reduce it, such as playing the guitar to emote those feelings away through music, or drinking some alcohol to numb myself from reality, or watch Aria. So in addition to hearing gentle stories, it serves to unwind me. In this sense, episodes of Aria are like pills of tranquility, I only take it when I need it. Because Aria is only one choices out of other activities, I did not always chose to watch Aria to reduce stress (my preference is the guitar), hence it took me a while to finish. Nevertheless, Aria is a gem, and a pleasure to watch. I will follow the second season in similar manner.

I really hope ARIA the Natural animate some things from the later volumes of the series, such as

Other than that, let's hope Junichi Sato keeps up the good work and I really would like the animation to improve more (not that it's bad, but it seems a bit static when compared to the beautiful backgrounds in the manga).

Aria is my top favourite next to Honey&Clover. Love everything about it from the character to the setting of Aqua, Aria makes me wanna find a place like Aqua, if it exists. Aria is definitely a alternative anime to watch than the mainstream ones. Its a anime that i don't like to rush through it, i only watch it only if i feel like it, not for the sake of finishing a episode or trying to catch up to the recent episode.

It sucks that i have to go to HK for most of April, i won't be able to catch the 2nd season until the end of April.
