Initial Views: ARIA the Animation

Aria-1 Aria-2

ARIA is the story of Akari Mizunashi and her day to day life on Aqua as a Undine (gondolier). This is slice-of-life anime at its best. The series started out as a manga and has been translated into animated form beautifully. The stories tend to be fairly simple glimpses into Akari's life. Wether it is giving a free ride to a young girl and showing her what is special about Aqua or practicing her rowing with her friend Aika. You always find a relaxing bit of story. So far, one I'll be watching.

Hmm, seems like an interesting premise at first. But I was kind of bored after the first ep. really. I wonder if there is more to the plot than just her slow life rowing boats...

Nope, there really isn't much more to it. Just some nice stories. There's no overall plot going on. It isn't about action. I'd compare it to something like Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (which is also deserving of being animated more).

Though I can easily see how it wouldn't be for everyone.
