I've got the ADV version of Aria and, from what I remember, there wasn't anything objectionable. Unless the series takes a nose-dive after the first volume, the rating doesn't make any sense.

The only possible offensive material is a hotsprings scene in the second volume. It hardly seemed like fanservice, though. Barely any skin is shown in the hotsprings chapter. It wasn't anything worse than something you would see in Totoro or Cardcaptor Sakura.
I would recommend buying Aria for your sis. Just make sure that after you give her the first three volumes to check each manga just in case.

And welcome to the CAA!

So, what is that coveted job she wants, exactly?

And yes, I was the one in the Strawberry Marshmallow thread. I've read the first two books, and think it's kind of cute, but what really turned me off was when Nobue cursed God's name in the second book, when she said they were going to protect Matsuri's "*** **** childhood innocence." Yeah, that's pretty much the only kind of swearing that really bothers me, the kind that includes God's name. But other than that the series was cute.
