I know I am a little late to the party on this one, but I just recently started to collect the manga (albeit backwards, my Kinokuniya only had 11 and 12 in stock) and watch the anime (The Origination, waiting on The Natural). It’s nice to watch a show just for like 20 minutes of feel-good-calming-heartwarming time :). It’s too bad that the manga already ended though…

I love the setting, it’s just so beautiful and calming. Although the manga is, of course, in black and white, the setting is still presented as beautifully as it is in color. The characters are nice too, I like that there are some calm characters and some silly ones to even it out.

I really wish there were more figures of this series though, it just seems to me that the popularity of Aria and the amount of figures are off. I have seen the chibi ones but I don’t want them. I just want a nice one of Akari.

I’m looking forward to going home and watching more of Aria, what a great way to wind down after a long day.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

This isn’t really my typical post, but I was surfing around Youtube and found a lot of anime openings from my “golden age” of anime (1998~2004 or so). There are some you might notice that are from earlier than that, which is because this was before fansubs were widespread or you had to get them on VHS so I was only able to see them well after they aired (and mostly when they aired on Toonami or Public TV).

Anyways, the videos are under the cut…let me know which ones you enjoyed/remember!:

I really like this figure. It’s simple but her pose is interesting (especially for a sitting pose) and sexy and I love her hair and her eye decals are really good. I hate the base so none of these are with the base. If you want a picture of her on it comment and let me know and I’ll take one for you. Here we goooo~!


A TON more below…did I mention I love having a mini-studio????: (more…)
