I want a "I heart NV" t-shirt.

Anyways, this was quite the fascinating episode. It was quite interesting to dive into the mind of Akira, Aika, and Alice after Alice's promotion. I loved it when Alice walked into her room to see everyone stuffed with bananas. It was just too funny.

And thank you BSS for picking this up. Only 2 more to go D:

Yes, very good episode! I cried, twice.
I seem to be crying at least once in every Origination episode.

Indeed, I was just about to start watching the raws. So I'm glad that they picked it up.

I'm also glad BSS picked this up. It made my day yesterday to see it on TT =)

I had a feeling Akari and Aika would visit Alice that night =P

Although I really have to say, I think each episode makes me realize how devastated I'll be when this is all over ;_;

Oh my god! Can I hit 5/5 twice? I forgot how amazingly beautiful these are, and was just reminded. The thought of Alice chan lonely was almost too much.

Edit - Did I just do a fanboy gush?

Another AMAZING episode, From Aika's steadfast determination to Alice's realization that her friends haven't forgotten her, this is just another experience not to be missed.

I only have 2 regrets. 2 more episodes left, and that I waited THIS long to see one of the greatest animes of all time!

I have to admit that I cried like a baby during this episode. Alice's "I'm so lonely" line was perfectly delivered. The first two seasons were fantastic but this is on a whole other level imo.

I can't say it any better. You're totally right. I can see these 3 girls being the next generation of the great water fairies!

It was kinda depressing since Alice is a prima now and she doesn't have the time like she usually does before to go and meet up with Aika and Akari. I guess she's not used to it yet but I bet she will be sooner or later.

What made me laugh was when Alice entered her room and found Akari and Aika inside eating pizza together. Akari's right. You don't need a reason to see your friends. You alone is enough to see your friends. Fuck, I said something embarrasing there. :(

I don't know why Akira was feeling depressed in the beginning though. I guess she just thought Aika was feeling down because Alice is a prima now. It's good to see that it's the other way around.

^_^.... I can't reallly put this feeling to word, but I've watched the whole episode with a smile... a smile with a lot of different emotion.

Incredible episode as always, seems Aika is on her way to becoming Prima, but still it's a wonderful thing to still see their friendship so strong =]

I seriously need a t-shirt that reads
I loved it when Akira came up with those lovely names for Aika. And I was so fascinated by the way Aika took the challenge and promising Akira that she would give her all when her turn comes.

The other half of the episode was so good. Alice was feeling all down after not being able to be around with Aika and Akari, and when she was thinking this is how it might end for the three of them not being able to be together like those wonderful days, she opens the door, and Aika and Akari are right there.

But the best part was when Akari said that Alice herself is more than any reason for them to be together and then smiling together holding hands on that balcony, I could feel the bond they formed over the years. Amazing episode. It's kinda lonely to feel that it will end in the next couple of episodes. :'(

It was quite interesting to see Akira thought about Aika and the name she's going to choose for her :o

Another great episode.

Looks like Aika is the next to get promoted! I really like the atmosphere of these last few episodes. Very bittersweet.

This episode had a bittersweet feeling to it, but ultimately the sweetness of it pulled through. A touching episode that focused on both Aika's will to become a Prima and Alice's days as one. When they were all sitting in Alice's room, it took me back to episode 11 of season 1 and how they were told that once they became Primas, those days of always being together would start to get more and more distant. But because of that, they should treasure their time together all the more.

Only two episodes left, I really don't want Aria to end. I feel like these last 2 episodes are going to be very emotional.

I adore this episode, Alice's part especially. Having finally reached her goal of becoming a Prima she now sees how difficult and hectic it can be, but it's the smaller things like being given a piece of candy by a passenger or finally being able to spend time with her friends. It shows that it's the smaller things in life that really matter. At least, that's what I got from it :P

Rozen/Rose Queen is a really good title, I think it will suit Aika well. Loved how she is facing the situation btw, expected her to cry but nah, she's handling it bravely. Proud of her.

I miss Akari a bit, next episode seems to center around her so all's good. the end is dangerously near too...

Being a Prima isn't easy Alice. Sometimes sacrifices have to be made. In this case, becoming a Prima at the cost of not seeing Aika and Akari for quite some time. Personally I thought it was sweet of Aika/Akari to go visit Alice. That's what I call having true friends.3

Aika is doing good herself. I think some expected her to be depressed but instead she's working even harder and in a happy mood.

This show likes surprising me. They could have easily made this a drama-focused episode with Aika being jealous of Alice, which I'm glad they didn't. Alice feeling lonely is understandable.

Aika is stronger than I thought.
It was nice that Aika and Akari went to see Alice.

I'm guessing Aika will be the next Prima soon and Akari is the last one?

Aww Alice, you're not alone.. You never alone since you met Akari and Aika, Athena too

I don't want it to end, it's so close to the end :(
I guess all good things will have to come to the end

The episodes keep getting better and better,that interaction between Aika and Akira was sooo good.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.
