Oh yeah, after playing hacky sack with Aria-sanchou, I decided to give it to my younger brother. I let him watch the Animation so he's become a bit of an Aria fan himself - his favorites seem to be Alice and Alicia. He also agrees with me that the cat is disgusting.
I hope that the bonus for the second box will be Arietta. Trying to sell Arietta alone will be difficult.
In France, Arietta will come with Vol 8 of Aria for one more euro than the usual manga price .

I'd buy Arietta as a stand alone dvd. Then again I'd be buying Aria no matter how they sold it as long as I was able to come up with the money at some point. I'm expecting it to be included as an extra with either the Natural set 2 or the Origination though.

Still one extra euro for the OVA is a great deal. I mean it goes for what, 5000 yen as a stand alone in Japan?

Though that does make me wonder, just how much does manga cost there in France?

Just 6.95 Euros. Yes, cheaper than Tokyopop version for more content. Exactly the same quality than the Japanese release

You get your revenge with US anime release cheaper and way better than the french version which cover only Arietta + Origination

Origination will have 14 Eps with the bonus ep 5.5 so it is likely included to Natural Box 2 (13 ep + 1 ep OVA).

Got my precious
Watched the bonus. Saito is a master mind, plotting that music fit perfectly with every scene.

Saito's family meetings must been Dekkai special.

Just finished watching the specials. While I don't think anything can top the Venice trip from the Animation, I enjoyed them all this time. There were a couple in Animation that I didn't finish, but these were all interesting. Euphoria is my favourite OP of all time so it was cool seeing and hearing the singer discuss it. And the sound design one was especially interesting, I never realized that Choro Club made cameo's, and I always wondered if Coccoro's lyrics were real or not. Though it was sad seeing Kawai Eri. I hope the specials for part 2 are as good.

Just started re-watching The Natural for the nth time (wow, it's been a year since ARIA ended) and I noticed that Akari "ogles" Ai for the first time in episode 1. Perhaps Junichi Satou really was a perfect mind for Aria.

Of course, he was the perfect mind, you can see the reflection of it in his Venezia Gomen.

Umm... What? "Ogles"?

Ogle
v. To look at with amorous intentions.
Akari: I don't know why, but I just I felt kind of happy.
Ai: Huh? You're weird, Akari-san.
Walter Sobchak: Eight-year-olds, dude.


Dunno. Had to choose "ogle"- that's the best way I could put it.

Damn. I keep missing the extras every DVD release. Now I'm back on ALL THREE DVD RELEASES.

Oh well. If Origination has amazing extras, I'll be sure to keep up this time. Though a $100+ pricetag will probably hit me then. Too many videogame purchases.


Speaking of packaging, does anyone know how good the printing work is on the actual DVDs and the packaging? I'm really curious since I'm so used to the really high edge Geneon prints (AMAZING DVD artwork and extra-high-class box material. heh) and ADV thinpaks sometimes having faded colors and lackluster DVD-art quality (Azumanga and a few others).

Got my second Natural box set yesterday. Like my other Aria sets it occupies a very prominent place on my dvd shelf. Once again a nice guidebook, though I have to say I like the one in the first box set better. Now I just need the Orgination and Arietta to complete my collection.
