I'm on the second episode of Aria: The Natural and it's been wonderful so far. I can only hope the rest of the series is just as good.
You're in for a ride kid
It's a treasure and makes life better. Enjoy it!
it's a cait sith episode
Enjoy the comfiness.
This. I hated that fucker and the caith sith episodes (save the galactic railroad one) were easily the worst part of the whole show.
You DID start with Aria the animation right?
How do people not like Cait Sith? The ep where they follow the cat on the little boat? The one with the headless woman?
The third season is really a cut above the rest. Make sure you don't read any spoilers.
The one with the headless woman?
I still don't understand that episode. A scary shit in my comfy show? What did they smoke?
It just makes the world of new venice a bit more mysterious. A lot of the episodes that verged on the more supernatural side of things were like that. I for one was into it. It put a little spice in the broth.
I feel bad for Athena whenever she tries to get closer to the creepy autistic girl (Alice).
Best brown girl in anime
shit upscaled BD re-release
No thanks, my DVD rips look better upscaled with madVR.
WHAT THE FUCK ARE THESE DEADFISH ORIGINATION SUBS
QUICK WHAT GROUP IS GOOD?
the last 5 or so episodes of origination are some of the best the entire medium has to offer
you will never watch aria for the first time again
Origination is even better.
Animation is like a 7/10 until the last few episodes that make it an 8/10.
Natural is a solid 9/10 and nice exploration of Neo Venezia.
Origination is a 10/10.
for origination, EtB, HnB, ExiledDestiny, or CrystalNova?
Origination is a masterpiece. I would also really recommend checking out the Manga as well. It's even better than the Anime in my opinion.
You know, every single otherworld episode put Akari on the verge of death, not just that one. The mirage cafe was way scarier to me.
I just wish I could watch Origination again for the first time.
did you ever visit the real Venezia user ?
I went there just because of the anime desu
Its as beautiful as it looks in the anime but the undines need work
As an Italian who goes to Venice every year I can tell you that people there kinda hate tourists. Also, the gondoliers are rude, arrogant, scammers and not cute in the least, the few female gondoliers look like trannies. I wish there could be a school with cute 15 year olds practicing around the city.
But do they have cats aboard their gondolas?
What is your favorite episode? My favorite episode is the Traghetto one, it was very nice to be introduced to some other characters and see how much Akari had grown in comparison to the average undine.
I liked the farewell to the summer wind chimes episode. It had that note of optimistic and beautiful sadness that Aria hits at its best.
people are actually defending Athena
Athena is also fucked in the head. The one where she pretends to have amnesia is borderline psychopathic
Years ago I watched this with 1440i raws and it was beautiful.
I don't get what you're saying.
Anyways, I just finished downloading the BD rip of Animation by ReinForce and gotta say, this version is the only one that actually looks a lot better than the DVD rips. I hope they'll rip all three seasons.
What's up with Avvenire? Are we going to get a fourth season?
Isn't there a chance that Origination could actually look good on BD? Wasn't there something different about it than the other 2 seasons?
Are there subs? I tried ripping subs from the DVD rips and there was too much stuff with the subs so it was pretty hard to correct.
It gets even better, Origination is a masterpiece.
Try to not kill yourself after watching it all though, do it for Akari.
Not liking Cat Sith
Are there subs?
Yeah, a kind nyaa user timed the subs for it:
Also, the gondoliers are rude, arrogant, scammers and not cute in the least
curious about gondolier wages one day
find out your waifu is a rich bitch
they make too much money
Cait sith was a chill dude. At least he kept his fucking mouth shut, his ass out of the camera, and stayed in specific episodes, unlike President Aria.
people there kinda hate tourists.
I never got living at a tourist destination and getting pissed about tourists. I love talking to the tourists who come to my area, even if they ask stupid questions, because at least I left them more informed and less likely to have money wasted picking their corpse out from a rip tide.
What I don't get is how you can be pissed about tourists in a town where 99% of the income is tourism.
Watching an episode a day like someone told me in another thread yesterday. Very comforting show. Excellent music. Glad I watched despite my dislike for SoL.
sorry you don't understand hyperbole
I watched the first episode of this and wasn't really feeling it, given all the hype it gets here I sort of want someone here to persuade me to keep going with it and that I was watching it incorrectly somehow or that it gets signifcantly better in later episodes or something along those lines.
I watched Barakamon a while back and enjoyed it a lot, then I tried Non Non Biyori S1&2 and fucking loved that. For both of those series I was pretty much sold from the first episode. I went for Aria next and it just doesn't seem as "comfy" to me as those two. As opposed to getting that sort of atmosphere across mainly through the setting and the actions of the cast like in NNB & Barakamon, here I'm getting it mainly through the characters telling me that it's comfy through expository dialogue. Also the President Aria mascot animal thing is annoying as hell. I do think that the setting, character designs, and the OP/ED were quite nice but that's it.
Let's say you go to a tourist location and cross the street at the wrong time and get yelled at by a driving local. You learn your faux-pas and never do it again. From your perspective it only happened once and it's no big deal, from their perspective this happens all the time and it's infuriating.
I don't think my example happens all that often but it's the same principle.
I couldnt enjpy the show. The cat was annoying.
Speaking of that, why are Japs some sort of autistic culture that feels the need to have humans make "animal sounds" instead of just recording an animal?
Instead of that retarded "buu" or whatever, thecat could have made actual cat noises. Fuck you can record those for free, no need to pay anyone.
Most cats/Cait Sith episodes are creepy as hell. Mirage cafe or carnival to name a few. And it does in fact make Aria even better.
