In the future, mankind has colonized the other planets of our solar system. Today's Mars is know as Aqua. After
terraforming, the planet became covered in water. Our story takes place in one city on Aqua, known as Neo Venezia.
Mizunashi Akari is a carefree girl journeyed to Neo Venezia from Manhome to become an undine (gondola rower and tour
guide). Base on the manga by Kozue Amano, Aria seeks to uncover the simple life in an age where technology has made
Of the many series I was anxious for, Aria stood out as one of my favorite. I was already a big fan of the manga, which made me wonder how an animated version would turn out. Unlike Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou, Aria made an extremely good transition between print and screen. The anime does well in capturing the simplicity and charm of the manga, while preserving the message of the simple life. In today's wide range of magical girls, giant robots, sorcery, and in-your-face comedy, Aria stands out as a break from the norm. Less is more, or so they say.
As a testiment to the quality of the show, it is the only anime where I watch each episode from beginning to end without skipping. Each opening sequence is different and the ending theme brings the story to a close.
I recently watched all three seasons of this and I loved it. Each of the characters are very endearing and the scenery is beautiful. It's a very peaceful and pleasant anime, it made me admire the lifestyle of the characters and want to live on the beautiful planet Aqua myself. <3evelluchia rated 10.00:

This was one of the best plot driven series I have seen... because that it does not rely on fanservice or any blood and gore to get along... it is the story that instantly grabbed me and the the characters kept me watching it intently. It is sweet and all of that, but it never causes cavities - it is one of those good feeling sort of series that almost everyone could get into.
It is a bit of a departure for what I watch normally, but that should speak volumes for the series itself.Troyen rated 8.25:
I really like the characters and the soothing setting. Unfortunately, the cats and the unrealistic "cutesy" emotional expressions detract from the show. However, season 3 (The Origination) was very charming and emotionally powerful.ghost945 rated 10.00:
appreciation of everyday living and experiencing. would have thought the topic dull but they executed it quite nicely. love the fact that all female characters' name starting with "A". the many scenes in both manga and anime are very scenic. these scenes taught me how to take a well balanced photo and developed my passion with photography. an unexpected outcome from watching anime.
