That was a really great episode. Athena is so pretty >.<
They were so cute when they were younger. I want more flashbacks.

I got weepy at the end when Akari rushes over the bridge and waves to them. The bittersweet theme of the episode kinda just culminated there and with the music it was such a cute little moment. Really great episode

Athena is hilarious, such a special person XD

Great episode, the end made it feel like one of those action anime episodes where all of a sudden and alien force will attack and destroy everything and the undines have to join the war and protect the world, but that won't happen.

This is my favorite episode!~
Gah! This episode was way too beautiful! It was so bittersweet. Seeing the three of them as Singles and doing combined training together was nice - and Athena's so cute. Her solo is amazing~ And Akari running to the bridge was really sweet too :) Loved this episode! :)

Amazing sig set thanks to -DraGonZ-

That was a great episode ^_^, Athena was an amusing person even as a single but the moment she opened her mouth to sing I was blown away O_O, that scene was the best in the whole episode =D.

I also liked how it explored enjoying yourself and how you shouldn't be caught up in enjoying the past but the present, some pretty insightful words were also contributed by Akari xD.

Now, who feels like enjoying a cup of cocoa with fresh cream right now? *going to her kitchen*

And Athena's song... yay! *stars in her eyes*

Funniest, best ep yet! Athena hitting the bridge was and dropping water on the paper was hilarious.
The insert song was perfect in the ending scene though it was kinda sad though because Akari knows that she won't be with her friends forever.

One of the best episodes so far - it wa great! I love Athena because she's so clumsy and funny, yet beautiful and has a wonderful singing voice.
I really liked the flashbacks and I hope there will be more of them.

Okay so it's very awesome to see the childhood days of the three super water fairies. They finally got a reunion, all three of them and their juniors together, and it was fun seeing that.
At first I was like how did Athena become one of the 3 fairies, I'm guessing it's because of her superb voice. I was wondering though how did all the people hear her voice. It wasn't like she was using an amplifier or something, lol.

Alice crying was really touching. I'm guessing the 3 of them will be like the 3 super water fairies since they're doing the same things that the 3 super fairies did in the past, lol. Akari in the end was also touching. She really values her friends.

Okay seriously, I am learning new and new stuffs after I watch an episode. It's like every episode has a moral, lol. I hope it stays like this, the peace and calmness that is.

This is a great episode.

I'll remember this episode of ARIA for quite some time.

when watching the flash back... I literally tried to talk to Athena as she got closer and closer to the bridge. "Your head, your head, your head," bang* "ooooouuuu..."

I can tell how melancholy Akari was getting when Aika and Alice was leaving, I kept thinking "Go on, go to your friends" ^_^

EDIT: If this episode is an OVA... it'l be my second 10/10 ever given.

omg,this was like a huge slap to the face for me O.o

the message this episode delivered is so powerfull to me it made me shed a tear,and this happens EXTREMELY RARE :'(

it made me realise that you should live in your present,not your past,and you shouldn't regret the past only because it was great,the present and the future are/will be great aswell!

long live aria,my 10 is consolidating :-)

This series started kinda slow for me (and it is a rather slow-paced relaxing show) But it has been growing on me, and now the episodes fly one after another.

The first half of this episode was so funny! Athena is the best character of this show! Really really nice episode.

I loved this episode!

Athena's fails in her childhood were hilarious, but her singing was so beautiful.

The end of the episode was excellent, what Akari said is so bittersweet :|

Amazing episode, definitely the best so far.

The flashbacks were just magical!!

R.I.P. Junichi Sato, you were a visionary and genius and will be missed.

I haven't seen a whole lot of his stuff, but what I've seen is amazing!

I really appreciate the relationships in this show, they are so genuine, yet no traces of yuri whatsoever.

Most other shows like this would be full of yuri vibes, etc. which is why I generally stay away from show like this, but not this it is a fantastic show, and slowly becoming one of my favs.

And, the insert song at the end/Akari's moe-xplosion on the bridge was pure win!!

Urahara Out!!

The best episode of the season, imho, sad and sweet, and presents a good perspective to keep in mind when you start longing for the good old days.

Yeah, easily the best Aria episode of the bunch. It hit close to home too, as I'm sure it did for many people.

I can only hope there will be more episodes like this to follow!

One of the best episodes of the series. The first half was very interesting and funny, I especially liked how Akira used to be like Aika-chan, and how the three of them met (Athena's song was lovely and when she lost her oar I laughed). The second part was kinda sad, but Akari-chan managed to bring a smile to my face with waving on the bridge, she is really cute. 5/5.
