“The website for the new Aria the Avvenire anime announced on Friday that the character designer is Masayuki Onji (Nanaka 6/17, Urayasu Tekkin Kazoku Aoi Hana, Kimi to Boku.), and that TYO Animations (The Legend of Koizumi, Ginga e Kickoff!!, Wolf Girl & Black Prince) will handle the animation production.
The first anime series in the Aria franchise, Aria the Animation, was animated at studio Hal Film Maker, and later inspired two more television series in 2006 and 2008, as well as an original video anime in 2007. All three series and the OVA starred Erino Hazuki as the protagonist Akari, Junko Minagawa (The Prince of Tennis‘ Ryoma, Shakugan no Shana III‘s Khamsin) as Akira, Ryou Hirohashi (Kaleido Star‘s Sora, Working!!’s Aoi) as Alice, Kaori Mizuhashi (Kaleido Star‘s Rosetta, The Fruit of Grisaia‘s Michiru) as Ai, and Chiwa Saito (Yona of the Dawn‘s Yona, Rosario + Vampire Capu2‘s Kokoa) as Aika, among others. Late voice actress Tomoko Kawakami (Shaman King‘s Pirika and Mina, Revolutionary Girl Utena‘s Utena) also starred in the anime as Athena.
The Right Stuff International owns the license to the three television series as well as the OVA in North America. ADV Manga released part of the original Aria manga series, and Tokyopop reissued the whole series and its Aqua prequel manga.”
