i'm so glad they decided to develop Akira's character a bit more, i've always felt that she doesn't get enough screen time.

I found the mood a bit too heavy, I like my Aria with a more relaxed atmosphere. Can't say I didn't love it though.

Ah, this episode was so sweet!~
I really like how Aika cares so much for Akira and how she's worried about her~ Moreover, I find it funny how Aika was the one that helped Akira cheer up ^_^



Amazing sig set thanks to -DraGonZ-

ok, though last episode was the best, but I take that back and say that this is the best episode yet.

I think that akira&aika have the strongest bond, followed by akari&alicia, and lastly alice&athena (huh, just realized all their names started with an "A" :o)
so we need more background on athena...

loved it, like aika said, "beautiful story ;.;"

Incredible episode focusing on two of my favorite characters. I can totally understand the Origination's incredibly high rating.

OHHH MY FREAKING BALLS. I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS EPISODE. I JUST CAN'T DESCRIBE MY LOVE FOR THIS SHOW AFTER THIS EPISODE. I TOTALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WHEN I FINISH ARIA, I'LL BE THE SADDEST PANDA EVER.

Okay so there are many things that I fell in love with in this episode. Those are:
1. In the beginning when Akari, Alice, and Aika went to the market and all of a sudden Athena and Alicia came and showed their talents in public. I was like "OH SON OF A GUN THEY'RE FUCKING PRO." The lady selling tomatoes was funny too, lol.
2. Aika. Come on girl you're awesome. Don't let this natural talents or whatsoever make you down. As long as you work hard, you can get anything you want! Now I see why she was depressed in the beginning. Poor Aika. T_T The ending was also funny as she said something embarassing and she regretted it, lol.
3. Akira. YES GURL YOU'RE AWESOME. YOU'RE EVEN MORE AWESOME AS BEFORE YAA GURL. Her past sure was very lovely. I loved how they made it so dramatic, like the hair was being blown by the wind and such. YEA TEACH THOSE NATURAL TALENT KIDS HOW TO ROW PROPERLY SON.

Okay so that story Akira made was extremely lovely. I loved how she got her determination from little Aika(OH MY, YOU SO LOVELY GIRL.). So all you need to do is work hard for something than you don't have. LOVELY EPISODE MAAAAN.

Breathtaking and flawless episode. The best episode yet.
I was emotionally floored (on the verge of tears) by how amazing the story was.

I FREAKING LOVE THIS EPISODE! I'M TYPING WITH CAPITAL LETTERS!

Alice's control is pretty outstanding... and pretty fast even in narrow waterway. While Akari is just the adorable girl next door everyone love. Aika, ever since she lost her long hair, her character is not quite the same anymore. She turns into a crybaby and everything, at the same time, showed us her true sensitive, caring character.

I can relate to Akira, like her, I use to be haunted by the fact that others got more god given talent when compared to me.

And ORIGINATION enters my TOP 5. It can only go up at this rate. A wonderful episode of the two crybabies of Aria, Aika and her senpai Akira. While we see Aika cry a lot (I so want to hug her when she cries) often Athena mentioned that Akira used to cry a lot too. They are both so alike, both have no special gifts like Alicia's grace, Athena's voice, Alice's rowing skills or Akari's friendliness, but both of them are doing their best.

The four-leaf clover thingy made the episode one of the best things I have seen yet. If you don't have it, you make it!

Oh, looks like Akira and Aika have far bigger bond then it looked at first.
Aika always thinks that it is her sempai that support her but looks like in reality she is the one who supports Akira and is almost her guardian angel.

It's quite ironic - without Aika, Akira may have never reached the status that she has in the present.

Wooo.. I was taken by surprise by Aika in the flashback. She's the one who cheered Akira up.

Another great episode.

I've always liked the bond between Akira and Aika, it was quite the surprise that Aika actually inspired Akira to become a prima through hard work.

Aika episodes are always so good. She's been my favorite character since season 2.

It was nice to get some Akira backstory too.

Aika relates herself with Akira on being the most normal and hardworking. it's sad to see her depressed like that.

Akira's bond with Aika is really nice. More like all of these girls bond are heartwarming.

Ah man, it's Aika who cheered up Akira in the old days! I love things like that. I love love love how she made the four-clover leaf, it was such a precious scene.

Humans can do anything if they put their mind in it. There you did it Aria, you managed to motivate me.

"It's prohibited for me." How can you even get that cute and still be underrated on MAL

Unfortunately I reckon this is my least favourite episode so far, even across all three seasons.

Best episode of the whole Aria series. This reminded me of Ping Pong; Talent > Hard Work but different. Akira was quite a relatable character when she tried to hide her real emotion in front of her friends. Deep down she felt upset that no matter how much she tried, she will never be able to reach the level that her friends were at. This was done perfectly with her inner monologues as well.

Natural talent is only this much. Only when you are willing to work hard, should you be able to obtain the very said result that you desired for. This is just what I thought about the message behind this episode which will be important later on in this series.

Heard Origination is really good and is the best out of all the seasons. I'm not disappointed.
