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.

Great episode, probably the best of the first season.

OHH MY OHH MY BEST FUCKING EPISODE EVER MAN. THEY'RE SO PEACEFUL AND KIND. IT'S LIKE THEY'RE IN A DREAM WORLD OF MINE. FRIENDSHIP MAN. PRECIOUS THINGS THAT NEVER CHANGE, YEAAAH MY HEART IS MELTING.

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!!
T_____T

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.

Best episode so far, we got some funny and interesting moment, Athena song was beautiful. The ending was sad, with the anticipation of a future where they will slowly split apart.

5/5

Probably not relevant anymore, but it is "Symphony" by Makino Yui.

Anyway, yeah it is a good episode, Showing the resemblance between the mentors and the students. It had alll sorts of happy and slightly sad things going on, with simple yet usable philoshophy too. And that is exactly what I like about Aria the most.

This episode is so touching T_T Although the "time goes by and things will change" theme is often used, I think this anime portrays the message very well. It's nice to see that Akari, Aika, and Alice are like how Alicia, Akira, and Athena were when they were singles. I love Athena's klutziness, she's hilarious! Her voice is really beautiful, and I like how much emotion there is to the song even though it's in a gibberish language. Beautiful episode!

Favourite ep of this series. :D Love it when the background music starts to play as Akari runs forward and bid them goodbye. It's as though she knows the day would come where the three of them would be like their seniors where they wouldnt meet up as often anymore..

Feel like I'm taking a step into the past for a moment, since I watched this years ago but...

If you were to choose an episode that attempts to embody the entire Aria series into one episode, I would choose Episode 11. This episode has always stuck out in my mind from the moment I first watched it. It's that "I'm gonna someday reach back in time just like they do and then reminisce this precious moment." moment. Then 2 months later I finished Origination and it reminded me of this moment again. This series has always held a certain place in my heart and the only other anime series that has stood up toe to toe with my only other absolute favorite.

In the end, it might also explain why I choose to make the Animation my favorite rather than the Origination, besides having what I consider the best OP of the series, Undine.

Wow completely blown away by this one. I've been enjoying Aria so far but never have I had that "wow" feeling. This one has it all, great comedy, great atmosphere, great music and above all heartfelt sentiment. It's going to be hard to top this one. Chapeau!

That said
It was still mostly boring and dragged on too long.
So it gets a 3.5/5

Athena's voice is so soothing and beautiful when she sings.

Akari was cute at the end waving to Alice and Aika on the bridge, she really treasures her time with them.

Ahh so this episode skipped a year from the last episode huh? At the beginning of the episode Akari said how this was her 2nd winter when last episode she was experiencing her first winter.

Anyways, BEST EPISODE YET.

I especially love the part where Aria was so fascinated with Athena dropping liquid onto the bunched of straw wrapper...priceless.

I hope there are more episodes like this throughout the series (and sequels), the atmosphere was perfect throughout.

I believe Aria the Animation actually covers her second year on Aqua, her first year is covered in the manga Aqua and parts of that are adapted in the second season of the show, The Natural.

The Akira/Alicia/Athena training scene is hilarious. And I like how Aika's "embarrassing comments are prohibited" is breaking the 4th wall.
