How did you enjoy the first OVA?
I had to shower and clean the apartment before watching it for maximum peace.
>>
What if I don't want to get comfy?
Is there a way to watch/read Aria and avoid overly comfy feelings?
>>
>>135582308
Embrace it. You must embrace the comfy.
>>
>>135582409
Well, I watched an episode, but now I'll have to shoot angry glances into the mirror to get all this mushiness out of my body. It's interfering with my dark and edgy style.
>>
>>135583139
I think you'll warm up to it as the show progresses. You shouldn't take ARIA in too big doses though, it's dangerous.

Damn, that does sound amazing. I have a tub but I've never used it. I wonder if the next episodes will be over 15 minutes though, it's too painful.
>>
I should just watch it, at this rate it's going to take a year for me to get comfy enough to watch it.
>>
It was new year night - so, Aria the Avvenire is my first ainme 2016. I was drinking whisky and enjoying this story. When I saw Neo Venezia again, I almost cried. My city of dream, perfect place for me.
>>
>>135584059
That's great. Now that you say so I think it's my first in 2016 too. Maybe I should make it a new years tradition.

Thanks for audio. Aria OST is always amazing.
>>
Very frustrating, too short.

I got overly emotional anyway since i've never rewatched Aria after completing it the first time three years ago. I missed Neo-Venezia so much that right when I saw the water at the very beginning of the OVA I started crying a little bit.
>>
Ever since watching the new OVA I've had an uncomfortable feeling I haven't had since finishing Origination. I don't know exactly how to describe it, but seeing everyone grown up like that makes me incredibly uncomfortable.
>>
My goodness, the commentary (with Alicia, Akira and Akari's voice actors) was comfy.
Remember to switch to the commentary audio track for your rewatch.
>>
I'm just gonna say it.

I always hated the voices of the cats especially President Aria, I liked him in the manga but the voice ruined him. I also never liked Aika from the way she treats Akari, even if it is meant to be in a teasing way, I still didn't like it and her catchphrase wears of pretty fast. Same with Alice, she's to autistic and the way she brushes of poor Athena who clearly wants to be her firend in the beginning. Don't get me started on that episode with the left hand or something. Akatsuki too was boring, would have been nice if he'd have gotten a bit more character to him.

I love ARIA but those things I never liked.

There is only one problem. OVA is too short. If only we could see season 4...
>>
>>135586600
That's okay, Anon-kun.
I was sometimes annoyed by Aika's catchphrase too, and by Alice's autism. Akari is the true miracle of the universe for me.

In the end I still love them all, but you know, I understand that, Aria threads always being panegyrical, it sometimes feels like you cannot point out what you didnt like. You can, Anon.
>>
>>135585650
>>135586006
Same, but not in a negative way.

>>135586600
Rather than disliking the President's voice, I disliked how it was mixed. It was the pitch I guess a cat would have, but it really would have been good if they brought his volume down a notch or two.
>>
>>135586612
Buy the box sets, and buy the Amanchu BDs, and who knows? It just might happen.
>>
Don't know if I should watch the OVA now. I've been thinking since the first 2 times I watched ARIA were around that time of the year that maybe I should rewatch it first.

I already know my body won't be ready for episode 4.
>>
I feel bad for you guys who can't enjoy President Aria in the anime. He bring a smile to my face every time he shows up.
>>
>>135587542
I'm not sure I want it to happen. We'll never ever get an ending as satisfying as what we had. But then again maybe a little movie or something around the juniors might be cool if they're any good, provided that Amano Kozue does all the story work. Then again it will water down Origination. As it is, you say goodbye to ARIA there, like Akari says goodbye to the life she had up until then, and that's so intense.
>>

I was most amazed by the simple fact that it's Aria in HD.

The story was nothing new besides a few glimpses of the Ai generation, but it was wonderful nontheless. Absolutely cannot wait for the next episodes.

This, it makes me wish for a 4th season but at the same time i'm not sure if it could work out.

>>135590540
I always loved them. They help make the emotional bits more integrated with the rest of the show so to speak. So it doesn't get too serious and kind of helps them maintain their character.
>>
>>135590648
>makes me wish for a 4th season but at the same time i'm not sure if it could work out

Same here. On the one hand a 4th season would be like a dream come true, but the Origination was such a perfect conclusion to the series that I don't know if there should be any more than these OVAs.

>>135590756
>I don't know if there should be any more than these OVAs.
I would totally watch a new season but the OVAs are kind of enough for now, time will tell.

Okay so after finally watching the OVA, I only have one thing to say:

There is no way the person Alicia married is anyone else then Akira.

Because holy shit, this episode was the gayest thing.
>>
>>135591997
Nicce try Aria. You won't get me to feel feelings again
>>
>>135588359
>tfw you could take this picture with you in it

And the thousands of tourists swarming in the background - unless you want to photoshop them all out...

Please don't go to Venice and think for even a minute that the charm presented in Neo-Venezia is even comparable to that expensive tourist trap of a city - you might suffer 'Paris syndrome' like the Japanese do when visiting the namesake of that condition.
>>
>>135592176
Every edgy retard who spouts shit like this makes me incredibly sad they completely missed the point of Aria.
>>
>>135592071

A fundamental problem is how they would have to keep Athena out of each and every conversation. I can't support that under those conditions.

>edgy retard

I'm sorry - just what do you find so offensive about that post?

Why do you feel the need to respond so aggressively.

Sure it's nice to daydream or go imitate your favourite anime but be a little fair headed and and realistic at the same time.

Paris syndrome is a real thing you know.
>>
>>135592226
I think the point is that Venice (the real current one) is pretty shit. There's a bunch of picturesque towns along the adriatic sea however which are far more comfy.

Sure there are. Like Alice's double promotion for instance.

I feel sorry for you. We're having a great and meaningful time with this show and you can't get into it. It's really a shame.
>>
>>135595223
Even though that's though whole point of Aria.

My favorite quote for Aria as a whole is from ep5 of Animation, when they go to that island for some extra training, and at the end of the day Alicia tells Akari something along the lines of "the world is beautiful in the eyes of beautiful people".

I remember being in St. Mark's Square in the middle of November, at around midnight.

I was pretty much all by myself, except a few people hanging around Florian's. Water began to slowly rise up from the grates on the Piazza, slowly creating a mirror image of the illuminated square.

Winter Venice is comfy as fuck.

Going by the series, the best bet for ARIA Company's location would be somewhere on the Riva degli Schiavoni. You can't miss it, it's the major waterside 'road' leading from the Palazzo Ducale all the way down the southern edge of the city.

There's no house there, but it's a damn nice walk. Takes you all the way to Castello from San Marco, meaning fewer crowds and the sight of the impressive Arsenale.

The Avvenire supports this - although, take a look at this screenshot. It seems like the church on San Giorgio Maggiore appears twice...

For anons planning trips, bear in mind a few things:

Don't get ruined by the soon to come automatization process of society, make sure to survive post-scarcity unemployment.

After that you can think about who to vote for since nobody has really touched on the subject yet.

What a coincidence! I won't lie, I've not really looked at my books on Venice as of late. There is one, but it's quite specialized - about the abandoned islands in the Lagoon.

Do you guys think Kozue Amano will revisit the world of Aria after she's done with Amanchu? I just hope she doesn't retire to be a mother or something, which would be weird because her child should be a couple years old by now.

Regarding timeframes in this series, do they measure the years in mars or earth years? Its a bit confusing. For instance, alicia is like 19 at the start of the series but she looks mid 20s. And by the end it would either be 3 or 6 years respectively. Also, whens the ova meant to take place. Akari looks a good 7-8 years older and ai looks the same as she did in origination.
>>
>>135582224
I only watched animation so far
>>
>>135602692
I think Ai is like a foot taller
>>
>>135602692
I believe they say that every Mars year is 2 Earth years. Akari starts 15 as I remember, so she should end as a 21 y.o. or something like that, since I think 3 Mars years pass.
I'm not sure though.
>>
>>135602796

I think it was that mars's seasons happen twice a martian year, so it would be 3 earth years, or 1.5 martian years.
>>
>>135602692
I think in Avvenire is the first time where they talk about the birthdays (everyone has two in Aqua)

But they do talk about how many months takes to complete one year in mars
>>
>>135602841
Even by that logic it would only make akari 21 by the ova, alicia 25, and the others 19-21. I only ask because they seem a fair bit older, especially in the first ova
>>
>>135602834
That's technically impossible, seasons change due to distance from the sun, and one such cycle constitutes a year. Three winters passing on Mars means 6 earth winters.
>>
>>135602834
I just checked wiki and it says Martian year equals 687 Earth days.
Also unless terraforming changed something majorly, season occur once a year, although they last longer.

The seasons on mars are controlled, not natural, in any case.

>>135603003
Yeah, it's kinda weird. Ai should have +6 years since the first time she went to Aqua, but she barely ages in the series

speaking of which, I felt that in the Avvenire, Akari looked younger, in comparion with the last episode of The Origination where she's a Prima and Ai's a Pair
>>
>>135603216
I do believe Akari to have said the winters are twice as long, even in the Anime.

So, just so you guys don't keep digging this hole. Seasons happen because of the angle of incidence of a given hemisphere to the orbital plane. That's why it's summer in Australia when it's winter up here.

Mars seasons would be 1/4 it's orbital period. So twice as long as earth's, with 4 seasons per year.

I don't remember either, but Grandma found him there and saw that he wouldn't leave the place so she quit Himeya and built Aria Company there.

I don't think the author considered aging that much. Each book encompasses a season and each sason is 6 months long. Also Alice was in school for a very long time.

He didn't respond at first because he was busy doing his thing with the endless blue, but when Grandma said she wanted to join him, to see what he sees, he opened up to her.

What the fuck IS Aria. He's a cat that's lived like what, over 30 years with no signs of going any time soon? And he seems to be buds with Cait Sith as well.

Is this like some martian chronicle thing where the souls of dead martians read the minds of humans and take on a form that is comprehensible to them?

Or it's magic.
Somehow Mars made even timetravel possible, among all other cat-based magic.

If you really think about it the humans in aria are some next level shit technology wise
-artificial gravity mastered
-able to synthesize elements on a planetary scale
-interplanetery travel is commonplace
-can control an entire planets weather from a centralized command center.
-terraforming entire planets
-earth is heavily implied to be a post scarcity society.

As far as scifi goes the aria humans are auite OP. the nest part about it though is they never really dwell on just how crazy that is. One of the better examples of 'show, dont tell' in anime

>>135608739
I dont think melting the icecaps could flood an entire planet waterworld style. Even assuming they did, to melt an entire poles ice is no small feat either
>>
>>135608739
But when Akari went into the past I thought they said the water wasn't fully brought over or whatever.
>>
>>135608808
Nah, it's easy. Just give Elon Musk the world's remaining nuclear arsenal.

>>135608808
Also, there's a lot of dry ice, not water ice on Mars, so I'd assume they crashed comets/synthesized it somehow.

No, because YKK's guiding thematic is sorrow, and Aria's guiding thematic is hope. Honestly I've never been able to into YKK because of how much the premise destroys my suspension of disbelief. "Humanity is dying out, but they're just sort of gently accepting it"...yeah, no. Sorry. Humans going extinct with grace is not something that would ever happen.

On the other hand, I'm an enormous yurifag and the gynoid gets the gynoid, so.

I'm a little late to the party but I thought YKK's scenario was fantastic. There appears to have been a war in the backstory, and there's abandoned science scattered all over the story. By the point of YKK, they've reached the end of their route.

Like people on their death beds always seem to go gentle, humanity's already moved past the death throes and into humility.

If holding hands isn't enough for you in terms of their romance then I don't know what is.

The subtle romance between the two is done so well that I almost want some sort of confirmation that they're together. But the way it's always teased is perfect as well.

Looking at the relief of Mars it would need a lot of water to flood most of it.
Also flooding most of it would mean that only mountains would be left, so no flat land but sloped terrain around the old giant volcanoes.
I think we just shouldn't take that so serious.

I was worried going back to Aria would be hollow since Tamayura was dull, but the magic was still there.

Does Tamayura pick up? Was about 4 episodes in + the prequel ova.

>>135616231
I personally didn't like Tamayura though I did watch the OVA and the first season. It had nothing what made ARIA great, the characters are forgettable and the OST too. Also photography isn't something I find interesting to begin with.

>>135616289
It went on too long IMHO. The OVAs were great, and Hitotose was alright, but in the end it's just another four-girl CGDCT without the magical setting and understated execution of Aria.

On the other hand, I certainly don't begrudge that Tamayura has apparently done very well for itself, since it hopefully means more iyashikei anime.

Listening to this while the snow whirls around outside. The floating kind that shows up only when it's really cold and the wind is gentle.
>>
>>135616522
For me personally, part of the problem was with the characters themselves. For whatever reason they just didn't resonate with me like with Aria, or other CGDCT like Sketchbook or NNB. Fot iyashikei to really work for me I need to have that investment so that the emotional moments have the power to move me, which wasn't the case with Tamayura.

That's not to say I didn't enjoy watching it - it was still a nice show, but middle of the road and ultimately fairly forgettable.

Sorry, I don't know the names of all the regions, I just want to live where Neo Venezia is situated.

On a sidenote, how do we make Mars have more sunlight? Mars desperately needs more energy on its surface. I was pondering that question a bit earlier and thought about some giant lens in space that focuses more sunlight to Mars. It had to be in a synchronized orbit with Mars though yet closer to the sun, so it wouldn't have a stable orbit. Maybe a small black hole that works as a gravitational lens would work.

We'll probably have fusion energy down by the time we are on Mars, so I don't really see a problem with energy. As for getting a nice temperature, we just greenhouse gas that shit up to max. The atmosphere will escape again eventually, but Mars had oceans for a hell of a long time, so by the time the atmosphere goes away Earth may not even be habitable anymore.

"After terraforming , Mars would once again lose its capacity to support life. But 100 million years is a long time. In fact, Earth might not be habitable for much longer than that. As the sun continues to brighten, Earth will succumb to a runaway greenhouse effect. The oceans will evaporate, creating Venus- like conditions unsuitable for life. So our second planetary home might last almost as long as our first."

-Christopher P. McKay , planetary scientist at NASA Ames Research Center, studying planetary atmospheres, astrobiology, and terraforming. He said this to nationalgeographic.

Just read up that Mars gets 44% of Earth's solar irradiation, that's actually quite good, it could be compensated with Greenhouse gases if they manage to hold the gases in the atmosphere. Lets leave that to the Gnomes.

Yeah, Mars is a lot nicer than it seems at first glance. According to a find by Curiosity, using the Radiation Assessment Detector, the radiation levels on Mars are similar to those of sub-orbital Earth. Though for a limited time, astronauts can definitely live in these conditions already. Solar flares may be a problem, but not enough to just delete all progress with terraformation. Eventually it shouldn't be a problem at all, since charged-particle radiation is less when the atmosphere is thicker.
