Good idea, clichéd final product
12 May 2016 | by pinkarraySee all my reviews

"No sappy lines allowed"

I have one word to say about this: Predictable

I don't get what's with everyone's hype with this anime. It's boring, unoriginal, and saccharine. If you are looking for a fast- paced, entertaining anime, then Aria the Animation is not the best choice to watch. Sure it may have a good idea but the story is boring and very slow-paced, not for those looking for action.

Story:

Too much flashbacks, expositions, and development makes this enjoyable likely for people who enjoy slow-paced slice of life anime. But I was having a hard time sitting through this as it has really bad plot issues and there's no story anyway.

Characters: The characters' interactions are pretty saccharine. I understand that the writers were trying to go for a more simple, kid-friendly series but there is little for teens to enjoy.

Ai-chan was a character that overstays her welcome to begin with. The character itself is not extremely annoying but still not my cup of tea. It would've been good for Akari to interact with her for a little while but making her a secondary character who sends her e- mails was surprisingly rushed.

The other characters are annoying stereotypes. There are tsunderes and cutesy girls which filled this anime to the point of being unbearable. This could've been done with less development and drama.
