ARIA The Animation

(picture from JumpC)

ARIA The animation was air last year but I have not finish watching them back then. There were 13 episodes for this anime. This anime by far has the best settings and scenic backgrounds. The whole story focus on life on planet Aqua, where human had work hard in producing water to make the planet habitable. Aqua, now a tourist hub with people touring around in gondolas. The professional gondoliers, also tour guides, were known as Undines.

The main character is Akari Mizunashi, a trainee for company ARIA. However, the anime featured two main characters, Aika S. Granzchesta and Alice Carroll , who were also trainee but of different companies. There were also three famous Undines acting as their mentors, Alicia Florence, Akira E. Ferrari and Atena.

One interesting thing about this anime was the constant use of their deformed appearances, which were funny (shown below).

Besides that, any cat with blue eyes were destined to be the "社長 shachou" president of a company. Alicia Florence and Akari Mizunashi were from ARIA Company, Aika S. Granzchesta and Akira E. Ferrari belonged to HIMEYA where as Atena and Alice Carroll were of ORANGE PLANET. If you noticed their name, the mangaka started all their names with letter A.

Umm... I think you mixed up Alice and Alicia. Alicia is supposed to be the mentor, and she;s in the same company as Akari.
