The trailer really gives off the movie budget vibe.

No, I meant Akira

But yeah, I get that it was the "make up" but still. Really not used to it (and I'm not sure those two are close to the manga art imho. They just looked a bit off in that scene).

Meanwhile, we got a confirmation of yet another anime project for Aria: the Benedizione. No further details so far.

I'm all for more Aria, as long as Amano and Sato are involved.

Same here and I am sure they'll still handle the new anime.

I mean, I'm really happy with all the projects surrounding my #1 series, but is it such a big property in Japan that they just keep throwing money at it? :heh: Maybe it's just one rich person that decided the world needed more ARIA. In which case I saw more power to them.

It's not some super hiot but the sales were consistently good, so nothing strange here.

I just wish someone in the west would rescue the manga license and republish it :(

So basically this is Aria the Yashahime version..??

I wonder if it would be focused to Essex, Akagi, & Graf Zeppelin Ai, Azuza, & Anya..??

Nachtwandler 2021-03-06 09:55

Most probably, as they covered everything worthwhile from the manga.

But they just did right?
https://www.amazon.com/Aria-Masterpi...5056515&sr=8-1

The whole manga series was recently republished as Aria the Masterpiece by Tokyopop

Here's my collection. Also a good reminder I need to dust it.

I did not know about this! Thank you for bringing this to my attention! *bows*

Has Tokyopop's new edition got past the point where they stopped last time? Their original printing got up to volume 6, which if the 'Masterpiece' editions are two volumes, would take it up to volume 3.
I bought the ADV edition. I bought the old Tokyopop editions. I don't want to just buy the same stuff for a third time unless I know they're going to finish!

To get on topic, I'm looking forward to when I can see this. Wondering if Benedizone is going to be another movie or a whole series? Suspect the former, would be thrilled by the latter.

Amazon lists Aria the Masterpiece Volume 7 as having been released December 2020. The description says it's the final volume of the Masterpiece edition.

Dextro 2021-03-06 16:18

So according to ANN the new release consists of 7 two-in-one omnibus books with the first volume consisting of the two first volumes of Aqua. That looks about right given that the manga has 14 volumes in total (aqua + aria). [link]

With that said I suddenly feel my wallet very light :heh:

Proto 2021-03-06 17:44

Yup. Vol 7's final pages from ARIA the masterpiece has

Spoiler for ARIAs ending. Do I need to spoiler tag this?:


And yeah, this, together with the kickstarter a couple years back to release the whole Anime series fully English dubbed, together with all the new projects in Japan makes me very hopeful, yet confused about ARIA's future. I thought it was a very niche series but apparently enough people like it that we keep getting anime projects years after the fact? Yay!?

Dextro 2021-03-06 18:04

The thing about niches is that while your fanbase can be very small it's also very dedicated. That should explain why it keeps being profitable to make more Aria stuff.

Is it? The budget is definitely clear though

Last Sinner 2021-03-08 06:31

Well, if it means Aria the Benedizione gets made, I'm for it. Aria is one of the titles that has stood the test of time. Diminishing returns hasn't hit it either. In a world where almost anything drawn out that long gets tainted, it gives me something to believe in to see Aria endure.

Cosmic Eagle 2021-04-01 06:49

Watched it. Plot revolves primarily around Anya/Alice/Athena's relationship. It is a very nice show. Nothing complicated but it does leave you all warm and fuzzy inside

You're so lucky. Just watching the latest trailer makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
