Oh this episode was comedy gold. I really hated Aika's hair previously, she had the most ridiculous pigtails I'd seen in my life, so to see her burn it off like that and everyone's stunned reaction, so funny.

I love how this show can go from silly to emotional in a split second. Seeing Aika's burned fro-ball of hair cracked me up. And Akira's "lecture" to Aika was awesome. Either way, I like the new Aika style better.

Great episode~
Aika's previous hair was a tad bizarre so seeing her long hair was really gorgeous on her. However, it was sad that it got burned - nonetheless the 'shoulder afro' was pretty funny xD And so was everyone's expression when they saw it~ But her new hair suits her well - she looks really cute ^_^



Amazing sig set thanks to -DraGonZ-

i don't really find Aika attractive " B E F O R E " but this episode really showcased aika's beauty, love her "semi-long" haircut.

Golden episode as usual.

I see it now. That's how she got her short hair.

I have to agree that her initial hair style is not fitting for her. However, I prefer her long hair style anytime of the day.

Personally, I thought that her semi-long style was the cutest.. I agree that I never really liked her hair before, it didn't seem right. It was pretty down though. the new real short cut is still pretty cute though.
& yeah, I agree that the looks everyone gave her when she burnt her hair was hilarious xD oh and, Akira's 'speech' was great as well.

Ahhh Aria, where the world's greatest problems revolve around a bad hair day.

Pretty hilarious ep, I love all the different chibi faces that go with each character. Aika's hairstyle definitely fits her and is also super cute. She'll have no trouble catching Al now ;)

I kinda liked it, and this episode seems to run to counter the sort of reservations I had about the previous episode in some ways via Akira's statements to Aika.

However, I couldn't help but think this episode was built too much like an episode of Full House -- for once, the moral felt a bit more forced than I'd have liked for the show.

For what seemed like such a long episode with many "sad" moments in it the comedy was amazing. Found myself laughing at Aria again. Loved Akia's new hair style, looked so much better then her old one.

This is definitely one of the best episodes out there. It has both hilarious and touching moments. Everytime they all gather up, it seems to be more fun than usual, lol. Finally, we get an episode about Aika.

Few things that I loved were:
1. Aika's hair before it got burned. OMGWTFBBQ that loose long hair was so pretty. I would prefer that kind of hair. Too bad it got burned into crisp. :(
2. Everyone's expression when Aika's hair got burned. It was like their faces turned into chibi mode because of suprise, lol.
3. Akira's speech. She's right, you can't be someone else because you're you. Damn, that was a good speech. It really touched my heart.
4. Akari and Alice going for Aika to comfort her. It proves that they're really true friends.

Aika's very short hair in the end was okay. Her OLD hair with pigtails was extremely unsuitable for her. Her new hair was okay but I do prefer it in this order: The loose long hair before it got burned>The hair Akari and Alice made for her after it got burned>The very short hair now>Her old hair with ponytails.

Overall, very lovely episode. She became in the same league as Akari and Alice. Well before she wasn't that cute because of her hair but now she's super cute. >:3

I agree with this statement. I would have preferred it if it were a bit more subtle like everything else in this show. Also, it's a shame that semi-long haired Aika had such little screen time, that hairstyle was my favorite of them all. T^T

I like her semi-long hair style... but both short and semi-long > her old hairstyle ^_^

So glad to see Aika recover in such a short time, As soon as Aika talks about she can no longer become like Alicia, I knew someone is going to give her that speech, and that someone is Akira.

Btw, is it just me, or am I the only one who got a feeling that Akira walk off because she almost shed a tear, but her pride prevented her to stay behind...

A lot of ppl here seem to like the semi-long style. She looked so young and cute with it. I'm really sad she went and cut it... would have loved to see her semi-long hair every episode.

Count me in as #3 for sharing this sentiment. Actually, I'd even say this was my least favorite episode so far, though I did enjoy seeing the new haircuts.

Aika really does look better with shorter hair imo. The message that went along with this episode was nice as well. That imitating or trying to be like others won't leave the same impression as going all out as yourself. I really like what Alicia said to Aika, it best represents that thought. "That hair style really suits you."

I didn't like her hair style before either, the longer one this episode was nice though. Also i think i kinda prefer the way she looked when Akari and Alice cut her hair, she looked a bit like Akira. The new style is pretty cute :)

I want more Akira episodes :|

Aika and Akira aren't exactly the subtlest of people, so I thought the "unsubtlety" (why is this not a word?) of the message was fitting, since this was their episode and Akira was the one to deliver the message. Anyway, Aika is my favorite character so far and I'm liking her new haircut.

I kind of wish she kept the hairstyle done by Akari and Alice but short hairs works well for her too :)
