Earlier today, the Aria anime website updated with a pair of teasers for the upcoming Aria The Avvenire. The two trailers, which run for 80 seconds and 30 seconds respectively, reveal two new actresses attached to the project.
Mai Nakahara will play the role of new character Azusa B. McLaren, while Ai Kayano will be cast as Anya Dostoyevskaya.
Aria The Avvenire is a three-episode special, which will get a theatrical run on September 26. The title will cover three arcs, two of which are based on manga chapters that were never animated. The three segments include:
- Sono Aitakatta Anata ni…
- Sono Atatakana Aayonara wa…
- Sono Harukanaru Mirai e…
Sono Harukanaru Mirai e… is a new story, which is being written specifically for Aria the Avvenire.
Aria the Avvenire was first announced in February, when studio Mag Garden opened a teaser page for the project. The series will be helmed by Junichi Sato (Kaleido Star, Sailor Moon, Aria – The Natural). Scripts will be provided by Reiko Yoshida (The Cat Returns, Bakuman)
The original voice cast from the Aria franchise will reurn to reprise their roles in the new title. Tomoko Kawakami, who passed away in 2011, is included in the cast list. The team considered her a vital part of the series, and decided to add her name to the credits with permission from Sato, Aria creator Kozue Amano, and Kawakami’s agency.
Previously, a key visual, character art for Azusa and Anya, and a 30-second trailer were released. You can check these out below.
