ARIA The BENEDIZIONE, the latest anime to be based on Kozue Amano’s sci-fi slice-of-life manga series, has received a new trailer and teaser visual. The film will premiere some time in Winter 2021.
First announced on March 5, ARIA The BENEDIZIONE will be the conclusion to the Ao no Curtain Call trilogy (Blue Curtain Call trilogy). The trilogy includes the 2015 ARIA the AVVENIRE OVA and the ARIA The CREPUSCOLO movie, which premiered on the same day as ARIA The BENEDIZIONE‘s announcement. The teaser visual includes a line that says, “The feelings towards you were my beginning.”
The ARIA manga ran from 2002 to 2008. It received an anime adaptation titled ARIA The ANIMATION in 2005, followed by ARIA The NATURAL in 2006, ARIA the OVA: ~ARRIETTA~ in 2007, ARIA The ORIGINATION in 2008, and ARIA The AVVENIRE in 2015.
Crunchyroll describes the series as:
Akari Mizunashi, at the age of 15, has left everything behind to travel to a sparkling planet covered in water, Aqua. More than anything, Akari wants to be an “undine” – a female gondolier who navigates the canals of the Aquan city of Neo-Venezia. As she begins her training with the prestigious Aria Company, will she be up to the challenges that await her on the path to achieve her dream?
