General ★★★★★

Re-watching this anime in the past few days, pretty old but very good anime

btw im trying to purchase the complete manga series of this anime


Story ★★★★★

This is neither a romantic nor hot-blooded story

but rather slow pace and bit fair tale that calms your heart

I love the final ending scene when Akari stares and smiles at Ai while she took a bit of breakfast when Ai first started working in Aria company

and Arishia did the same exact thing to Akari back then when she first came.

It indicates how things go around and achieve its mature states and around in a circle back to the new generation

Graphic ★★★★★

Might not comparable to today's graphic but back then it's very good

it also improved a lot in later season

btw the landscapes are a plus point

Design ★★★★☆

I like their uniforms

and the design of the city

Music ★★★★☆

Nothing to say about BGM but

the opening song and insert song of the first season have magnificent enchantments to the Anime

Undine & Symphony - both by Makino Yui

Especially the OP song plays while showing landscapes of AQUA or scenes of people getting ready to work

It has other good songs as well (why i gave it 4 stars? because this is for general music rating)

Warm your heart ★★★★★

CV ★★★★☆


Aqua and Aria take place in the early 24th century, starting in 2301 AD, in the city of Neo-Venezia on the planet Aqua—formerly Mars, which was renamed after being terraformed into a habitable planet covered in oceans around 150 years ago.[4] Neo-Venezia, based on Venice in both architecture and atmosphere,[5] is a harbor city of narrow canals instead of streets, traveled by unmotorized gondolas.[6]

At the start of Aqua, a young woman named Akari arrives from Manhome [sic] (formerly Earth) to become a trainee gondolier with Aria Company, one of the three most prestigious water-guide companies in the city. Her dream is to become an undine, a gondolier who acts as tour guide (see Terms below). As she trains, Akari befriends her mentor Alicia, trainees and seniors from rival companies - Aika, Alice, Akira and Athena and others characters in the Neo-Venezia city. Aqua covers Akari's arrival on Aqua and her early training as a Pair, or apprentice, while Aria continues her training as a Single, or journeyman, culminating in the graduation of her, Aika, and Alice as full Prima undines.

Each chapter is a slice of life episode of Akari's exploration of the worlds of gondoliering, Neo-Venezia, and Aqua itself.[5] Amano frequently uses several pages of lush art to depict an environment, showing the wonder of both everyday activities as well as one-of-a-kind events. It has been described by reviewers as very similar in tone and effect to Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō
