It's An Amazing Day

Okay, first it's Opening Day with a full slate of baseball games on TV and radio.  That always makes it a good day.  But even better is the appearance of this:

This PV for the upcoming ARIA the Avvenire answers many questions about the upcoming series. Specifically it lists the cast members and the news on that front is good: the VAs that made their characters who they are will all be coming back.  The PV does list Tomoko Kawakami as Athena, which on the face of it seems impossible since she passed away in 2011 from cancer.  Maybe flashbacks, or dialogue snipped from past episodes?  They can do remarkable things with technology!  The presence of Ai and Akari's hair style suggests that Avvenire will be continuing on from Origination... which means Athena and Alicia would both be retired gondolieri, but they're shown in their respective company uniforms.  Which means who knows? 

Here's what I can tell you for sure: I desperately need this show in my life.  Like, right now.  Instead, we'll have to look forward to September.

1 What does avvenire mean?

2 Google Translate suggests as a noun, "future". 

Wikitonary says "to arrive" as a verb and "future" as both a noun and an adjective.

So, maybe "ARIA the Future"?

ANN says the title is "ARIA the Arrived", which misses the whole future bit, both in word and in feel.  In their version, "Arrival" would be closer.

Now I've a reason to stay alive until the Fall.  Dang.   Ah, well...I'm sure it will be just a little beyond awesome.

4 Oooooh.

Considering that the spring season looks to be more desert than oasis, I guess looking forward to later in the year is the best we can do...
