I finally got around to watching this. And it was another wonderful episode. I just loved seeing all the hidden gems Akari tried to pull out, and it was funny seeing Aika and Alice tail them.

Again a excellent episode (yes i watch Aria the Origination only now T__T XD) ... and an episode with Akari-chan is always fantastic ! Alice and Aika were very funny (like in the episode of Natural when they follow Akari to understand her XD)
And the new realisation is still more beautifull !!

More cool places that I would love to visit. Someone should built an Aria theme park or something.

At first I was like why did grandma customer choose Akari and not Alicia but then sooner or later I found out that she prefer riding singles than prima, LOL. Damn I'm such a pervert person. :(

Few things that I loved in this episode were:
1. Aika and Alice. They sure were funny when they tired to follow Akari around. It was so hilarious when Aria saw them. Also damn funny when they got caught in the end and Alice snitched on Aika, lmaoo.
2. The grandma. She sure knew a lot of stuffs. Infact she knew more stuffs than Akari. What's ironic is that she even rode Alicia, Akira, and Athena when they were still singles. Damn that's gotta be a long time ago.
3. The places that they went to. Neo-venezia sure has a lot of wonderful places.

So I learned one thing again, that if you put your heart in it, everything is going to wonderful. That grandma sure taught me a lesson!

Wow, Akari actually went through a Prima test. But as always, she took it with such calm manner, but it was sad to see whichever place she took the examiner to, were already known to the old lady as she seemed to well versed with the entire of Neo-Venezia. I loved how Alicia smiled throughout the entire series.

Aika and Alice following Akari was also wonderful. But they missed out so many things, like eating those yummy buttered potatoes, or looking at those statues from between the poles.

But it was nice to see Amaranta-san admitting she could understand Akari's love for Neo-Venezia. It was a great episode yet again!

Another lovely episode. Part of me wants Akari and Aika to become Prima undines (and later Alice~)...but then another part of me never wants this to end!

Aika and Alice won this episode for me. So funny.

Ok this is something that has been happening since Aria the Animation and I just feel compelled to say it now. Every time the opening starts, I go into a complete trance and my mind starts to wander. I just love how they use the scenery with the opening and it's always so soothing and beautiful.

Another great episode, glad to see the undines in action. It really shows how normal scenery we see every day can be transformed into something wonderful and fresh with the right perspective. It seems like Amaranta was showing Akari a new side of Neo-Venezia.

I thought this episode was a masterpiece, quite honestly. Every now and then, an Aria episode truly blows me away. Otherwise, it continues to be a very relaxing, idyllic, and lovely show. I'm glad nozomi finally added Origination to their youtube channel!

That was beautiful.

The spirit, the style, the mood, the characters.

Watching Aria is like watching two puppies lick each other's faces, or kittens riding a Roomba.

My favorite part was definitely how Alice and Aika were following Akari. The series is as lovely as ever, I'm afraid I'll die of cuteness overdose. 5/5.

I've never seen a kitten ride a roomba but two puppies grooming each other...yeah. Yeah you're right :p

Haha it was so obvious Aika would follow Akari on her first job in a while. Such perfect friendship, it warms me up.

Aria makes me so happy, I was a bit tense but now, I am feeling so light. That old woman had some great memory btw, and she was soooo nice and gentle too. I want to see her again, maybe in the last few episodes? I want Akari to show her the places only she knows.

And is it just me or Ai's voice got a tad mature? They really are going for perfection this season. But is it even possible to perfect this already perfect anime? Guess time will tell. I am just so happy that it is gaining another season haha.

I was expecting the lady to tell Akari she passes the test, but that would seem like too early in this season. She has experience in the city as she was able to show Akari new places she's never seen before. Same with Akari, she showed her a place that Akari thought she's never seen. The lady did see that purple tree already, but because Akari put her heart into, it made the trip there even more special.

Oh President Aria, if only you could speak lol. He would have given away Aika's and Alicie's location early in the episode. Leave it to Aika to be the one who wanted to spy on Akari.

- "Roger"

Those lines very funny. lol

Oh that was most definitely it. It seemed like the VA for Ai was able to restrict from going full-child and now we get to hear her voice maturing which means show's growing up! :D

As for the episode, I really love this season so far and this episode too. Teared up again. It was so positive and happy, my gosh. I really liked the Grandma customer in this episode. In a sense, she was evaluating if Akari was worthy of being a successor to Alicia for the Aria Company which is a lot of pressure if you think about it. Her giving praise to Akari of being worthy felt so touching when she was feeling discouraged.

The lesson is that putting your heart into something can create some wonderful memories which can make it stand out from the crowd. Honestly, I've been feeling discouraged from some negative things happening during the past few months which made me question if I could even stand out and get my degree. I just gotta work hard and just put the heart into it!

Overall, great start.

Once again, I wish Neo-Venezia is a real place
Everyone seems nice and really love Neo-Venezia dearly like it's their own family
A city that loved by every people in it seems really cool place to live :3

What a wonderful episode as always
Never failed to bring me smile for every episode :D

Not the greatest Aria fan but i must admit there is something charming about this new season that i just wasn't seeing before, or maybe i'm now just used to it.
