People like them only watch anime to talk about it on /a/, which is why they're stuck at watching seasonal garbage because it's "current".

Yes, you're going to miss literally the entire series. Avvenire is 3x 15 minutes long OVA episodes that take place after the story is pretty much "over".
Why would you even consider doing this?

And don't rush. Watch like one episode a day. You'll just ruin the experience for yourself otherwise, and the second episode of the OVA series isn't going to be released any time soon so it's not like you're in a rush.

Don't listen to this guy. Marathon it.

I've never understood this mindset when it comes to Aria. I've marathoned all three seasons 7 or 8 times including the first time I watched it.

It's like a comfy machine. It's a great way to kill a day.

I agree with you. I never understood this advice either. I think that it's better to marathon it.

When I marathoned Aria the Animation I had the flu and I don't know if it's because of that or just because I did nothing else all day except sleep for a few hours but my brain remembers Aria very clearly, as if I was there, as if it really existed.

previews?
>>
>>135537339
>>135537768
I guess its up to personal preference. I marathoned it for my first watch-through, and I really regretted it. Forcefully rushing through a slow-paced anime gives me headaches, which reduces my enjoyment substantially.

The subsequent watch-throughs were done every alternate night, and I find myself enjoying it that way even more. It allows me to soak in the comfy atmosphere of Aria. Currently at my 4th iteration.
>>
>>135536430
Perfect way to start 2016. Undine made me bawl like a little girl, and when Athena started singing, that simply killed me. Too beautiful.

Why are we only getting three 15-min episodes of this masterpice, and then, back to reality with 22-min (and 2 cours) of trash like IBO, harem shit shows and nonsensical yuri or yaoifags?

Is that difficult to make nice things?
>>

Don't listen to these guys
>>135537339
>>135537768
You'll only experience Aria for the first time only once that's why every episode must be savored and experienced at the time you feel most appropriate and with the mood to match.

It kind of bugs me how they have to try and make Aria seem sexy for some reason. Shows like Aria are supposed to be a refuge from this kind of fan pandering.

Would it look any better when you'd watch it at the original resolution upscaled by your bd player or computer?

>>135540604
Anon pls, there's even a readme in there that explains everything.
>>
>>135540604
It has a readme, quit being a bitch.

Or just download the .ass in the torrent description instead.
>>
>>135540718
It is possible that the episodes could have a better upscaling job done by a bunch of invested and knowledgeable amateurs but it's unlikely.
It really is unfortunate that Aria comes from a time when film had been abandoned for digital but shows were being mastered in such dreadful resolutions.
Watch it on a CRT.
>>
>>135540718
>Would it look any better when you'd watch it at the original resolution
You'll probably get a better result downloading the DVD rips and upscaling with madVR.
>>
>>135540747
Oh, I didn't notice the .ass in the description. Thanks, buddy.

>>135537051
God, I hated watching Tamayura. Felt like a cheap ARIA rip off without anything memorable unlike ARIA.
>>
>>135540930
I hate to admit it, but I was never able to feel even a fraction of what I feel for ARIA for Tamayura. It just felt somehow boring, the characters never entered my heart, and I watch lots of that stuff.

Still need to finish Aria the Natural. Great soundtrack though.

Does that even exist?
Doesn't something like waifu2x exist on a professional level for animation?

>>135541405
but will it work with the first 2 seasons? I only found guides with 720p, but since Aria is 480p and 4:3 in both

>>135538429
>>135541326
Will all 3 seasons look like this?

>>135541505
The Origination is 720p widescreen, I think. It'll not look THAT bad with the third season, but don't expect too much neither
>>
>>135540832
The DVDs look fine fullscreen on a 1080p screen, a CRT won't really do much. Can't remember how good the DVD encodes look, but the playback straight from the DVD looks fine at least. There's not really much more you can get from them, given the way the show was made.

I do wonder if one could filter it to hell and back and get a reasonable 576p version out of it.

Anyone ever go to Venice in Assassin's Creed II, put on the Aria OST, and just wander around? I highly recommend it.
>>
>>135545709
I haven't, but I did go to Venice proper and walk around Castello with the OST.

For some stupid reason, I didn't go on the walkway along the northern wall of the Arsenale like a few other anons who frequent the Aria threads have done...

>>135546616
You're doing a disservice to Aria and to yourself if you stream.

I only care about plot, not quality. I can't even tell the difference in sound or visual quality from one version of media to another, sensory stuff doesn't matter to me.

if you're set on streaming, please don't post screencaps here.

>>135545786
>I haven't, but I did go to Venice proper and walk around Castello with the OST.

Same - just wandered around Venice with earphones in and the OST on shuffle. Was quite pleasant.

So many damn tourists though - ARIA almost always looks so calm in comparison. It's ridiculously pricey everywhere as well.
>>
>>135547127
>So many damn tourists though
I've heard it's calm during the winter season, when did you go?
>>
>>135532932
I teared up when I heard Athena's song, RIP Eri.
I have her complete discography on my phone and I get to hear her and Aria's soundtrack almost every day and I still get emotional when I hear them.
>>
>>135540178
>>135540930
I really enjoyed tamayura, the soundtrack is just amazing and the scenic route stuff is like porn to me. The characters can be annoying at times, which unfortunately also constitutes a lot of the humor so that's definitely a deal breaker for a lot of people. It didn't bother me much since it is at most some 2 minutes in an episode and the rest is pure cotton clouds.
Also Ayana is leagues better as Potte than Kirino, it's almost worth watching the show only for the sake of the voice actors.
>>
>>135532932
But Athena is dead. What is this?

Not him - I'm >>135545786

But I went in November, in the low season. Tourist wise, not really an issue. You had crowds around St. Mark's, Rialto etc. but it wasn't so busy that you had to queue to get in places. You could walk right into the Basilica or the Palazzo Ducale whereas in Summer you'd have to queue for a while.

Price wise, it was slightly inflated but not wallet-kiling summer level. Plus the sooner you got away from St. Mark's/Rialto, the sooner you got to the cheaper, less touristy places.

Summer or Carnevale Venice, I'd recommend avoiding unless you really want to go then or can't go any other time. You still get clear blue skies in the low season, they're just crisp and there may be more water around than usual.

It isn't Neo Venezia, but Venice is definitely a place worth visiting. Find a quiet back alley and vanish from the crowds, and get pleasantly lost.

Making a poor comparison, Tamayura is a "weaker" Aria, but enjoyable.
It's iyashikei moments aren't as strong as Aria, but since it is more realistic than Aria it really brings some cute and inspiring moments.

You can always blur it to hell and back and hope that it makes the QTEC go away.

Don't have the DVDs around to check how this would stack up against them, alas.
