Right Stuf and Tokyopop Achieve Pre-Order Goal to Reprint the Aria Manga in a Masterpiece Edition

Right Stuf, Inc. has announced in partnership with Tokyopop that they reached the minimum number of pre-orders necessary in order to reprint all seven volumes of Aria The Masterpiece, the special collector’s edition of Kozue Amano’s Aria manga, individually and in a complete series bundle for one final run. The companies’ condition for reprints was that each volume needed to receive 900 pre-orders. Pre-orders will be open until October 13, 2021.

Right Stuf’s website lists a release date of May 31, 2022 for all reprinted volumes and the bundle. The company noted that this will be the “final run” and “future printings of the series are unlikely.”

The manga volumes are two-in-one omnibus volumes with color pages and gold-foil cover embellishment. Tokyopop released the first volume, which is actually the two-volume prequel manga Aqua, in 2019.
