The proportion of the poll just reflects on how much of a miracle it truly is.

I just noticed that Akari is sitting with Aria-Shachō in the same way Alicia used to :-)

Honestly my favorite part was definitely the commentary track with Akari Akira and Alicia. It felt so good listening to them and brought me wayyy back to when I used to listen to the cast commentary and drama cds. Especially when Athena appeared and they were all like "Ahhh, athena". I was also laughing my ass off when they couldn't figure out what happened to aria-shachou's proportions and were saying he went on a diet.

This is too short :'< Just when things got good the ending song came on D: Still, lovely to see all the old characters again, and Akira's throw was epic xD I feel sorry for Alicia, she must be tired each day due to work. But I'm sure she enjoys it :)

Right from the start, it established that wonderful atmosphere that truly soothes my soul. I thought "Ah, it really is the Aria I know and love." The shorter episode length caught me off guard, but the message it conveyed was still very heartwarming. It continues to touch on the idea of how the torch has been passed down and what it means for Akari and the others to be prima. Even if their time with each other is limited, those unexpected moments they get to see each other truly are miracles worth savoring.

And can I just say how much I love their new hairstyles? It's hard to describe the sensation, but when I saw Akari, Aika and Alice, it was like I could see who they were as singles/pair, the silly adventures of the everyday happenings they used to spend together, and the moments they became Primas again all at once. Everything just flashed before me. And when Ai was rowing, I thought of when she first popped out of the gondola and blackmailed requested Akari's service. All of it came back, I really do love Aria.

The ED was really sweet too, showcasing locations from the first season. It brought it all back, especially the bridge where Akari waved Alice and Aika goodbye after their get together.

  1. To have Mars of Destruction, Skelter Heaven, and Pupa properly adapted in TV series form by Madhouse
  2. To have Inferno Cop properly adapted in TV series form by Bones, director: Urobuchi Gen
  3. An anime crossover of Mushishi x ARIA x Haibane Renmei.

Should even one of the above conditions cannot be done, anime is still at risk.

That was mostly flashback, though i don't recall any episode about Alicia birthday. But in this episode Athena is still being Gondolier. Cant wait to see the kouhai, it seemed Ai-chan has't got any friend yet. I hope Next episode will be 45 minutes length.

Oh god, I was soooo happy to see them all back again!!! This was wonderful! <3
I missed Alicia and Akari so much. I got really excited when Alicia showed again ;w;
Akira giving Alicia her birthday present was soo cute, it really shows you how much she cares about her! (and viceversa).
The animation was simply gorgeous.

Indeed, miracles happen, as we are able to watch our beloved Aria again <3

So good to have Aria again.

If I could change one thing, I would have preferred a recycled ED song like the OP, as having Undine at the start was just perfect.

Exceeded my expectations. Akari is looking beautiful +_+ I love the uniform.
This is still my favorite series of all time. I bought the ARIA Master manga even though I can't read a word of it xD ..supporting the author/series whenever I can.

Watching this really bad for my heart. All those nostalgic feelings is pure bliss...
But didn't Akari adult hair's style should have a longer front tails, about down to her shoulder at least.

Aside from the bits of awkward CG at the beginning, this was everything I could've wished for.

Simply amazing is all I can say about it, it's everything I've grown to love about this series, especially after bingewatching it again just to refresh my memory for this new three episode release

This made me cry... I'm just too sentimental when it comes to Aria....
I also love how they used all of the original songs... brings back so many memories. Damn, now I feel like rewatching Aria again...

That was a pretty short OVA, although I'm happy to hear Undine again!

Akira was being a big tsundere there.
That meeting with Athena and Alicia was great, even if it lasted a few seconds.

can't believe that a 16 minutes long episode made a 24 year old man cry 3 times T_T

so many memories overflowing, it's just incredible, i missed everyone so much

it's been 7 years and a half since i had contact with new Aria material...and it gave me the same exact vibe as it did back then...that's one godly trigger there...while watching it i realised that the last 7 years made me who i am today and during some parts of the episode, while connecting some memories to akari's words about miracles...i realised how many friends i met and lost, or kept during this time.

Aria truly is one of the masterpieces of the 21st century

needless to say...5/5

Really great. I miss the world of Aqua so much. I felt a little sad when I heard Athena's song again. RIP Kawakami Tomoko.
