While we anxiously await the high-end Blu-ray work being done for the Kickstarter for Aria, the folks at Nozomi are now getting the series some additional eyeballs as Tubi TV is streaming it on their service. They haven’t added everything to it but they’ve got a whole lot of it with:
- Aria the Animation,
- Aria the Natural [up to eps 23]
- Arietta OVA
- Aria the Origination
The series has seen a solid release in anime form in North America over the years with Nozomi Entertainment bringing it out in limited edition form on DVD as well as priced-down litebox releases. The manga has seen a less than solid run between ADV Manga and TOKYOPOP over the years.
Property Concept: Akari Mizunashi, at the age of 15, has left everything behind to travel to a sparkling planet covered in water, Aqua. More than anything, Akari wants to be an “undine” – a female gondolier who navigates the canals of the Aquan city of Neo-Venezia. As she begins her training with the prestigious Aria Company, will she be up to the challenges that await her on the path to achieve her dream?
