Crunchyroll announced that they added Aria the Animation to their digital lineup. The series is available in its entirety for members in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
On Saturday, Right Stuf launched a Kickstarter to produce an English dub for the show. The campaign aims to raise $110,000 by September 11 for the release, which has an estimated ship date of February 2018.
As of press time, Right Stuf has raised $83,817 across 769 backers, with an average contribution of $108.99 per backer.
Pied Piper, Inc. confirmed that they are assisting with the adaptation. Michelle Knotz was confirmed as a member of the show’s voice cast.
Aria the Animation adapts Kozue Amano’s Aria manga. The 2005 series was helmed by Junichi Sato (Kaleido Star, Slayers Premium), who also handled series composition for the project at Hal Film Maker. Makoto Koga (Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan, Macross 7 the Movie: The Galaxy’s Calling Me!) provided character designs for the series.
Right Stuf describes Aria the Animation as:
In the early 24th century, Mars has been terraformed by mankind into a sparkling planet covered in water. Akari Mizunashi, at the age of 15, has left everything behind to travel to that reborn world, now known as 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?
