I just checked out 9 ARIA DVDs from my local library. These are the Right Stuf/Nozomi Ent. licensed versions of ARIA the Animation and ARIA the Natural, for those who don't know. (The sub font is that horrid yellow. And there is no singalong karaoke style lyrics. [sadness] But we must make do...)
On the extras they have interviews with the six seiyuu who voice the main Undines...and they. Are. HILARIOUS! I just watched the two part interview with Sayaka Ohara, Junko Minagawa and Tomoko Kawakami, Alicia, Akira and Athena respectively.
The following line should give you an idea of what it was...
Sayaka Ohara: I'M NOT DRUNK! I SWEAR... (breaks down laughing hysterically while staring at camera)
Junko Minagawa: Sayaka Ohara, everybody! -applauds-
Just...wow. It was funny.
Like I said, the quality of the Right Stuf sub isn't as good as many fansubs in both appearance and translation, but it is certainly passable and now the rights to ARIA have been acquired there's obviously not much we can do about it.
Can't wait to see the extras Origination has. 8D
