That moment with Akari at the end is still among my favorites in the series. I could feel tears streaming down my face at that part, this episode was complete gold. "Those were good times, as well." I like that bit that Akira, Alice, and Athena said about enjoying both the past and present. It's something that's taken me a long time to realize when I was constantly living in my "glory days."

And why did it take me a rewatch to realize how wonderful Athena's personality truly is? I feel ashamed.

Dub = fake crap. Always.

Mhnn So Athena is the best at singing, Alicia has the best oar control, and Akira is the best at being a guide huh..? I wonder what one super pupil would look like..

I like how instead of doing a more corny thing like running after them and hugging them, they keep Akari in character and she does an awkward wave while yelling their names. Getting older and having less time to spend with friends really is a sad part of life. It's nice that they handled the topic well with this episode.

Ending scene with Akari awkwardly waving Aika and Alice goodbye was really well done.

Pretty sad knowing they'll eventually slowly drift apart.

Aria the Animation is often regarded as the least impressive season of the three, given its role as an introduction to the world and characters of Neo-Venezia. Despite this, episode 11 is easily my favorite episode in the entire series. The revelation regarding the water faeries' past (foreshadowing what is to inevitably come), a full display of Athena's singing, and the poignant bridge scene with a perfectly placed insert song... absolutely sublime. Time and time again this episode leaves me awestruck at its impact, even after numerous rewatches.

Damn those ninjas with onions T_T

This episode just really hit me in the heart, way too heartwarming
That was truly a beautiful episode (& the songs too)

What a lovely quote, kinda embarrassing though xD

Athena is really funny.
A nice episode, it would have been better if the anime was about Alicia, Akira and Athena.

Possibly the best episode yet. I'd guess the reason why it received almost unanimous praise in this thread is that it delivers the three Fairies' origin story and that the theme of growing apart from friends is very easy to relate to. But it was also wonderfully executed, in a cozy winter holiday setting with a new insert song to boot.

Athena finally had more lines. She seems pretty mature, the rare occasions she speaks are always for a good reason as well, and this contrasts with her clumsiness and general awkwardness quite well.

I liked Athena's song enough to overlook the sappy filler shots.

This is definitely the best episode at least in the first season.
