This episode totally won me over. Alice is adorable and everything about this show just makes me happy. Loved it.

Well... I guess Aria is still not my thing. After the disappointment of the first two episodes, I tried the 3rd and 4th, and while I have enjoyed them more, as more or less I know the weak spots of each character and what the series is meant to create, there are still scenes I can't come to love.

I liked, to a point, the inner conflict of Alice, but then again the whole wording about the smiles and happiness somehow manages to take me away from the tone of the episodes... It seems I'm enjoying this show more in its quiet moments than when the characters interact. Specially with Akari, yes she's happy and positive, but hearing why she's happy and positive from her own mouth implies tons of cringeworthy metaphors and cheesy talking that, instead of reinforcing the feelings of the show, in some way damage them. And I guess I'll have this problem for the whole series.

This one gets 6.5 points. The other more or less 7, because of a more interesting and evocative story; so they are both an improvement on the first two. But I'm still waiting to see what makes this series specially good.

Why is this so pointless and good at the same time?

While parts of the exposition was handled well, others...not so much. I liked the episode though, relaxing as ever. The new girl looks alright. What's with everybody's name starting with A though?

The episode pretty much makes us learn sideburns in Japanese, you always learn something new. 4/5.

Aw, there weren't any ara ara ara's this episode.

I like how there's so many big machines flying around in the sky, but to get to Ukijima, they have to take a ski lift.

I thought this episode was an improvement on the first two, more interesting. And the city really is like another character to the show. In terms of personality Alice reminds me of Azusa from K-On.

Exactly. Akari's so sweet, Alice such a good character.

Too many A's, how about a Z character next.

Alice's monologue when they were with Akatsuki sounded lame. :(

And the sunset scenery was not pretty at all...

Hm. I guess I'll watch a while longer. Not sure if it's something I like though.

Very nice music, however.

This was a very heartwarming episode, the new Alice character was very interesting to follow through the process of understanding Akari's way of working :)

This is my first watch of the series and I love it so far :D

That president cat thing annoys the hell of out of me, looks like Mugi from K-On.

Waiting for the sex scene.

Anyways, good episode. Hopefully it doesn't get boring.

I actually laughed at "scouting young people for gondoling companies".

What the hell, Alice is in 8th grade?

Anyways I enjoyed this episode!

Plan on watching 1 episode a night right before I go to bed. I feel like that is the best way to watch it since marathoning this would be a drag.

I don't know what the secret of Akari's smile is that Alice found.
