SDB Likes ARIA.

To be honest, I wasn't sure he would.  I knew he'd appreciate the show, sure, but as he said, he doesn't "do well with 'lots of personality but nothing happens' kinds of shows".

Well, he just finished watching S1e13, and one could say he likes it:

"I will say this: this is one of the best things I've ever watched."

In the past, I've either suggested or he's gotten interested in a few shows based (at least in part) upon my recommendation: World of Narue and Jubei-Chan, and I waged a campaign to get him to watch Azumanga Daioh, and while he's liked them all (2.5 stars, 3.0 stars, and unrated due to fanboi interference), he's never been as... enthused about a series as this.

I'm pleased.  And relieved: I really wasn't sure he'd like the series, and said as much in one of his comment threads.

*phew*
I'd feel awful if he hated the show and it was my fault he bought it.  Shoulda had more faith in the Girls from Aqua.

1 I think you'll like my review. I just finished writing it, but I need to collect some frame grabs before I can post it.

2 I've seen people say that a show like ARIA, from what they've watched, is not for them. But I've never ever heard of someone saying that they hated the show. I think that's also a nice testament to the series.
