If you are someone who missed out on picking up the individual volumes of Aria the Masterpiece's manga, which are now out of print, or are someone who's a huge fan of the series, you are in luck, because Right Stuf are teaming up with TOKYOPOP to release new Collector's Editions of Aria the Masterpiece by Kozue Amano.
There is one caveat to this, however. Right Stuf and TOKYOPOP will not be re-printing the series in this new Collector's Edition format unless they receive 900 orders for each volume. Also according to the listing, this will be the final run of the series, so it is unlikely that Aria the Masterpiece will be printed again after this release.
There are a total of seven Aria the Masterpiece Collector's Editions and they are 2-in-1 omnibuses that collect all 14 volumes of the series. Another bonus to these is that they come with new full-color illustrations and spreads.
If you are new to Aria the Masterpiece, it is a slice of life and fantasy manga that is set on the planet Aqua, which was once known as the planet Mars. Akari Mizunashi has just made her home in the town of Neo-Venezia, a futuristic imitation of the ancient city of Venice. In pursuit of her dream to become an Undine — a gondolier who leads high-end tours around the city — Akari joins as a trainee with the Aria Company, one of the three most prestigious water-guide companies in Neo-Venezia. There, she explores the beauty of the city and the world along with other trainees from Aria and rival companies, working hard for her dreams and making new friends along the way.
You can preorder the Aria the Masterpiece Collector's Edition omnibuses now on Right Stuf's site. You can either purchase the volumes individually for $19.99 USD a piece or you can purchase a bundle of the entire set (Volumes 1-7) for $135.99 USD. All orders are expected to ship out on May 31, 2022, but keep in mind that expected arrival dates are subject to change or delay.
