Aria the Origination

Aria the Origination

The water-laden city of Neo-Venezia is a haven for tourists and dream chasers. While in the city, gondoliers known as Undines ferry the visitors from place to place, showing them the sights or simply lending a sympathetic ear. Akari Mizunashi is an apprentice at the Aria Company, one of three companies in the city, and wishes to be promoted someday to the title of Prima. With the help of her friends, Akari accomplishes many things including helping to shuttle frequent visitors to the unknown sights of the city, gazing at beautiful paintings, and pondering the existence of the planet before it was called Aqua.

YKK and Aria are two shows about absolutely nothing. While YKK is a bit more insightful, Aria is closer to a valium substitute. Regardless, if you like series where nothing happens, you'll enjoy both of these.

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou and Aria the Origination are two shows about absolutely nothing. Both have pretty graphics and music. Warning both may cause drowsiness. If you liked one you'll probably like the other.

Seraphim Call and Yokohama present a sometimes funny, sometimes thoughtful look at life, from feminine perspective. Of course, as both are set in the near future, there's a little more to it that that, Alpha is a robot, and many of the girls in Seraphim Call are less than straightforward as well. But if you enjoy the more introspective, less action centred feel, both should keep you transfixed.

Although the stories of Yokohama Shopping Log and Emma are fundamentally different, there is a common thread of quiet elegance and dignity in both. They will definitely appeal to the same audience.

Both Niea and Yokohama are slow, and slightly disjointed slice of life anime. They share the same nearly suffocating, yet oddly calming melancholy formed when personal loneliness clashes with a true appreciation for life and community. As slice of life anime should, these shows tackle difficult to articulate emotions rarely touched upon by anything else.

The Diary of Tortov Roddle

The Diary of Tortov Roddle

His name is Tortov Roddle, and he is a traveler from Tortalia. Along with his unusually large companion of a pig, the slender Tortov travels from place to place, always finding a new and beautiful adventure at his destination. From islands carried on the backs of frogs, to delightful cafes, to movie theaters and giant bears, there's a wonderful story to tell in the diary of Tortov Roddle.

Neither are stories in a traditional sense, instead focusing on evoking feelings through a series of small vignettes. Sweet, slightly sad meditations on a beautiful and strange world.
