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.

Akari's training as a gondolier at the prestigious Aria Company continues. Of course for Akari, the difference between training and just having fun is sometimes nonexistent!

This time with double the chibis and triple the punyuus, Akari and friends learn more about how life goes on at its leisurely pace, to the lazy beat of Neo Venezia.
