Mag Garden first revealed Aria the Avvenire in February via a new website, although the company removed the website soon afterward. Junichi Sato (Kaleido Star, Prétear, Sailor Moon) is again directing the anime at the studio TYO Animations. Sato is also in charge of series composition. The anime will also feature the return of Reiko Yoshida (Tokyo Mew Mew, Bakuman.), who will handle scripts. Masayuki Onji is designing the characters. Amano is designing some new characters that will appear in the anime. The staff will announce more information about the new characters at a later date.
Shochiku is producing the anime as part of the larger "Ao no Curtain Call" (Blue Curtain Call) project, which celebrates 10 years since the broadcast of the first Aria anime. The new animation's format has not been specified. The official website for the anime also previously revealed that "all Aria television series" will also receive a Blu-ray Box release in Japan as part of the same project.
Animation studio Hal Film Maker produced the first anime series Aria the Animation, and the series inspired two more television series in 2006 and 2008, as well as an original video anime in 2007. All three television series and the OVA starred Erino Hazuki as the protagonist Akari, Junko Minagawa as Alice, Kaori Mizuhashi as Ai, and Chiwa Saito as Aika, among others.
Right Stuf has licensed the three television series as well as the OVA in North America. ADV Manga released the first three of 12 total volumes of the original Aria manga series in North America, then Tokyopop released the first six volumes. Tokyopop also released the two-volume Aqua prequel manga in North America.
