posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Muse Asia announced on Monday that it will stream Aria the Crepuscolo, the new theatrical anime film project celebrating the Aria anime's 15th anniversary, through the SISTIC service from August 18 to 31. It will be available for viewers in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand. Online tickets are available on the SISTIC website.
Muse Asia describes the film:
The season is fall and the city of Neo-Venezia is covered in fallen leaves. Something is bothering Anya, who works at Orange Planet. Her senior colleagues Alice and Athena haven't seen each other due to their busy schedules, which is making Athena feel sad. But for some reason, Alice seems to be avoiding her altogether.
With her friends Ai and Azusa's help, Anya tries to find a definitive way for Alice and Athena to get together. But during this time, Anya learns of a situation that only she can see because of where she stands.
The film opened in Japan on March 5.
Junichi Sato, who directed all previous Aria anime, returned as chief director and scriptwriter, while Takahiro Natori, an episode director and storyboarder from previous Aria anime, was the new director at J.C. Staff. Yoko Ito (Amanchu!, Skate-Leading Stars) was the character designer and chief animation director. Choro Club and Takeshi Senoo returned from previous Aria anime to provide the music. Shochiku produced the film, and Shochiku ODS Jigyō-shitsu is distributing.
The franchise will have a new anime project titled Aria the Benedizione. The anime will be the third and final project in the "Blue Curtain Call" series that includes Aria the Avvenire and Aria the Crepuscolo.
Hal Film Maker animated the 2005 television series Aria the Animation. The manga later inspired two more television series: Aria the Natural in 2006 and Aria the Origination in 2008. Additionally, the manga inspired two original video anime (OVAs) — Aria the OVA ~Arietta~ in 2007 and Aria the Avvenire in 2015. Junichi Sato (Sailor Moon, Princess Tutu) directed all installments in the anime franchise.
