ARIA The OVA ~Arietta~ Website Online
Well after hearing the announcement WAY back in March, we finally see the ARIA The OVA ~Arietta~ website online. The date for the release is the 21st September, which is quite a long way away. Although seeing the picture on the site, it appears the background animation has improved significantly over the TV series and is more detailed. But of course this is only a promo picture so I do hope they release a preview trailer or something before the actual release. Plus since this is an OVA series, chances of me purchasing the DVDs are pretty good. (Yes I don’t have the TV series DVDs, surprise isn’t it?)
There is also an event held on the 2nd September called La festa di ARIA, which is probably just a promo event before the release of the DVD. Anyway check out the website here.
Also to note, I have been told an interesting rumour that Amano Kozue may be finishing up the ARIA manga soon. This I heard from a fellow ARIA fan, but how much of this is true I am unsure myself. Anyone want to clarify for me?
