Aria the Animation: Episode 3

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

Alice of the Orange Planet enters, and finally there’s an episode that doesn’t feel as if it’s filled with flaws.

Something I noticed when watching the first episode was how everyone has an A-name. Akari, Ai, Aika, Alicia, Akamatsu. This continues with Akira and Athena.


On Aria’s Box Art Cover

How well does cover art reflect the contents of a series? What happens when a cover shows a leisurely scene, but can be interpreted differently?

DVD 1 menu.

DVD thinpack covers? Beautiful. DVD faces using same artworks as covers? Absolutely gorgeous. It’s nice to see DVDs that look so beautiful. And that’s before the DVD even reaches the DVD player. Once in the player, the DVD menu uses the same artwork. Wonderfully consistent.

I’ve seen a number of posts by Jeff Lawson at Hop Step Jump about the Aria animated series. It’s always praise, but as I’ve never seen the series, I never paid much attention to it. I did check if there was a region one thinpack a while back, only to find it didn’t have a region one release. That’s changing now that RightStuf! has announced the first series, Aria the Animation, available for pre-order.
