Right Stuf / Nozomi picks up Aria the Origination + Arietta OVA, Junjo Romantica, and Antique Bakery

Right Stuf International / Nozomi has announced simultaneously online and at their Anime Expo panel that they have licensed three new anime series and a new OVA:

First up is Aria the OVA ~Arietta~ and Aria the Origination, the 3rd and 4th parts of the Aria series to add on to the first two seasons that Right Stuf already owns.

Arietta is a single half hour long OVA episode released in September 2007 while Aria the Origination is a 13 episode (edit: +1) series which aired between January and March 2008.

Right Stuf also picked up Junjo Romantica, which Kadokawa USA had announced at least year’s Anime Expo.  It appears, like most other Kadokawa properties, Right Stuf is handling the production and distribution while Kado USA holds the actual license.  This is for both the first and second seasons of the show, totaling 24 episodes.  The first season aired between April and June 2008 while the second season aired between October and December 2008.  They are apparently releasing it under the title “Junjo Romantica” instead of “Romantica ~Pure Love~” which is what Kado USA was calling it last year.

Right Stuf also picked up Antique Bakery, another 12 episode series which aired between July and September 2008.  All titles are expected to be released “in 2010.”

  1. Aria the Origination is 14 eps long, got a DVD exclusive ep in Japan which they surely won’t leave out of a R1 release.
