Right Stuf International has picked up the first season of ARIA! The box set with 13 episodes ships on September 30th, and ARIA the Natural as well as the OVA will follow thereafter.
This series was arguably one of the best I\’ve seen in the fast few years…I\’m picking up the DVDs for sure.
I\’ve also been buying the manga, and it\’s good stuff. It was pretty interesting to find out that some episodes of the anime actually took material from the \’prequel\’ manga Aqua. The background artwork isn\’t quite as nice as that in the anime, but the character artwork is top-notch.
I should probably review those too, at some point.
