Akari is a miracle of the universe.
Might as well.
>who has been in love with Akari for over 10 years
How does that unrequited love feel?
The Origination BD is going to look so fucking good.
Why are Akaris always so nice and lovable?
You mean just like the ANIMATION ones? Or is there a difference between the two as to how it was made?
I'm having a problem. I'm using Aegisub to retime subs but they also have a completely different font and are giant as hell.
>Aria isn't lewd
just look at those hips and thighs, you think you can resist?
>I'm having a problem
All I did was find the SRT file, load it in MPC, and then delay it.
I found a collection with different sub groups here - http://subs.com.ru/page.php?id=8734
Akari also loves Ai. And is not afraid to show it.
>Alicia was fucking dudes offscreen through all 3 seasons
I just notice that there are some nice Aria chapters are not animated, for example The Vogare Longa chapter
You could always say they "brigthen" up our day.
She was also teaching Akari correct way how to please a man.
Alicia's faceless husband is
How does that hair evenwork? Did she glue two sprits of hair together?
Looks like AB has 720p subbed.
I wish someone told me earlier that the manga is magnitudes better than the anime. This shit is so good.
It's the Amano art.
But some parts are better in the anime and viceversa
Both are amazing jobs though
>tfw Katori you will never be a Katori's student
Is there a better OP than Undine?
Such faces are an Amano trademark
>Is there a better OP than Undine?
We all know the answer is no, though all the OP's were really good. Kin no Nami Sen no Nami is the best ED but again, all the ED's are really good.
Spirale > Undine
>Kin no Nami Sen no Nami is the best ED
But Aria is extra lewd!
When did she imply that she's white?
I literally just finished watching this episode.
Weekend chapters in an hour.
I just finished episode 4 of Natural. It was pretty sad.
Who was Akari actually emailing in the manga?
A certain king of cats.
It's implied at the end that it's a kind of public blog, as I recall.
Like he said, it appears to have been a public blog. Just a bit of confusion with the translation choice being "Dear Penpal", which was really just a generic "Salutations" or similar.
Have you read the end?
That it did.
Each weekend I get a big head over my ability to pick tracks.
Is that pride well earned?
YKK in a moment.
>implying we would be worthy
I am feeling down anon, just let me experience my dreams just once. I mena this isnt even that high up, ideally it would be marriage and a life with her. But I'm not going to be picky atm.
>She will never cheer you up
I cant find my image of Aria inside the noose. Fuck.
You missed the manga's point, lad.
but I sympathize
Alright. May or may not post tomorrow, seeing as it's a national holiday. Keep an eye out, if you care.
side note: swallowing tea wrong fucking hurts
Was referring to Aria.
Thats the one anon, thanks.
I likethe other gif too.
>You missed the manga's point, lad.
The one you're currently posting. I havent read it.
I guess I should, but points dont matter. It's easy to get the point of a story, but putting things into action (or just your mindset) is much harder.
>putting things into action (or just your mindset) is much harder
Ain't that the truth.
>Was there a point?
It could be said that the series has a central lesson: that there's wonder in everything, if one is willing to look for it. It's up to you to alter your frame of mind so that everyday miracles become more apparent.
I've had difficulty practicing that myself. Maybe one day.
Only if you're as easily amused as Akari. Having not standards is itself a vice.
>Ain't that the truth.
Heh, funny you should post Marcus Aurelius. Stoicism is exactly what I had in mind typing that. I understand it, I shouldnt care about shit beyond my control or let it bother me. But actually being happy in such circumstances, holy shit it's insanely hard.
>It could be said that the series has a central lesson: that there's wonder in everything, if one is willing to look for it. It's up to you to alter your frame of mind so that everyday miracles become more apparent.
That went over my head. But it's a wonderful lesson you learned from the anime and I like that you took it from that.
I wouldnt say desensitization is the issue. More is being asked of people. Is your health good, your social life, do you earn X amount a year, etc. It all boils down to your life being compared to others and looking terrible as a result. It doesnt help there are always ideas being pushed as cures to make you happier, more confident, etc.
I wish I had a job though, jsut to keep the jobcenter and family quiet.
I'm a different anon. Anyways I'm not denying that the moral of Aria is to look for wonders anywhere, but that's only possible if we live in the best of all possible worlds; else there do exist things where no wonders will be found.
Okay, okay, I will post this not for you, but for everyone. It's not mine, and I don't totally agree with it, but I think it's a valid point in this exchange. Another big point, one of the main points even, of Aria is that Neo-Venezia is not a paradise. For instance, almost every single wonder Akari found could have easily killed her. Aqua only appears a utopia because that's how Akari perceives it.
But that's the thing, there is never any violence in Aria, no groups of different people vying for power at each other's expense. A utopia by it's traditional definition is just a peaceful society that runs without issue, which is certainly neo-veneniza at least as it's depicted. The real world is not so kind.
You aren't going to find beauty in the beheading of innocents, or impoverished countries worshiping a supreme leader. You could say one should aim to ignore these things and appreciate all of life's wonders to its fullest but I think that's just becoming forcefully ignorant. And of course at those peoples who suffer expense.
Akari's world view can only be justified in the idyllic setting.
If I wanted to get my life in order, I would follow stoic or Buddhist teachings as closely as possible, and also model my outlook on Akari's.
I'm just too attached to vice at the moment.
Haha what? Do you have any idea how naive and sheltered Akari is? Her being able to live her life as depicted in Aria is no justification for how true the moral is.
Arent their teachings pretty much
>You arent in control of anything other than your thoughts, so stop caring about everything else and be happy.
>Everything is shit. Meditate on how terrible everything is to destroy all your desires and free yourself from suffering as a result
It doesnt make it easier to get a job. I need a routine, I need deadlines and I need a sense of progreess.
Sadly my self control is weak and I dont know how to fix it and reorganize my life. Maybe I should jsut block this site.
It's not literally finding everything beautiful. It's to find the beauty in your life and your surroundings. Unless you are actually in the bottom 1% of poverty in the worst war-torn place in the world, you have something to look forward to or live for. Akari doesn't ignore anything; she accepts it and even then lives positively. I can say that every single person in this thread can do the same simply by virtue of being fortunate enough to have access to a computer and the internet. We aren't talking about the world in the story, we're talking about what each of us real people can take from it and make our lives just a little bit better.
I want to say that another series about finding this same sort of beauty in ugliness is Kino's journey, but that takes a more grounded approach to it by actually putting Kino in near constant danger. Yet the message is the same.
And thus I posit that Aria *is* indeed a spectacle. An object of envy, for we could never attain or physically perceive something as undeniably wonderful as whatever took place in it.
The argument that Aria is a treatise on moral theory relies on the assumption that something as quaint as Aria could become actualized, that someone could actually become who Akari is, which I think is frankly impossible.
I'm saying that being pointlessly optimistic at all the little things in life similar to Akari is just going to make you more depressed when something bad happens. Even in my affluent situation I've had to fend off a violent home invader, be scammed by others exploiting human good will. If I was inwardly enjoying how pretty the snow covered park was, it won't make the threat of violent death any less real.
Kino's Journey is different, in that Kino is extremely pragmatic, she is actually pessimistic about the outcomes of things to protect herself. But on occasion when the time is right she reflects on the beauty of something ugly.
Akari's world view simply doesn't work in a world of self interested violent actors. She would be exploited, stolen from, and harmed as long as she kept her hopeless optimism.
That guy looks pretty cool. I'd get on his gondola.
Also Kuro is another good manga about how one should view life.
Scenery porn + good story.
The most autistic
Alice is too cute.
Mai favorite chapteru is the one where she thinks she asks Athena to become the the Princess of Bubbleland. It was never adapted ;_;
This has been my avatar for a long time, but I lost the source image and now I can't find it. There used to be an Aria booru but it seems to have died. I think it used to be there, or I stole it from deviantart. Memory is fuzzy.
Jesus fucking Christ this was a terrifying chapter. This is some Twilight Zone shit
