All of them.

Most memorable episode, for me, was when Alice got promoted straight to Prima. Made me a little jealous of how successful she was, actually.

My favourite episode was the one where Aika overheard people badmouthing Akira and made a huge drama out of it. Emotional rollercoaster.
>>
>>135345981

Episode 10 of season 1 when the Primas are all together, and the 3 trainees learn that the Primas used to all be friends and in a similar situation to themselves. Then the girls realize that one day they'll be in a similar situation where they won't be able to see each other all the time, and while walking back Akari starts to get sad and cries to them across the bridge.

Then Alicia's graduation and the last episode.

Anyone else hesitant to watch Aria the Avvenire because TYO ruined Yuru Yuri s3 and you don't want them to ruin your image of Aria?

Sounds like they did a good job, though, based on the people that have already seen it.

I can't really remember individual episodes, so I'll just pick "episodes where Alice shone". Or that first season one where Akari went back in time to when they first flooded the water in the canals.

>>135346419
YY is different. That show was created by Dogokabo, which did a far better job handling its particular brand of humour.
But Aria was made by Hal Film Maker - the direct predecessor of TYO.
And the raws for Avvenire part 1 look beautiful.

The one where they find the box thay gets them started on a sort of treasure hunt always stood out to me. I love stuff like that.

>>135345981
Animation Episode 3
Origination Episode 7

One has the greatest animation in its season, and one has the greatest direction and writing in its season.
>>
Natural episode 5 for me.
A two-parter with a wonderful first part (the scenes in the temple with the fox deity and the procession of gods) - and an even better second part, that's magical in a different way: it's the most perfect illustration of serendipity in anime ever.

Alternatively, all the Cait Sith episodes. I'm so happy they finally will animate the final Caith Sith manga chapter for Avvenire - it's omission in the original anime was one of its biggest faults.

Aria could have been simply the best iyashikei show of all time, and that would have been enough to make it great. But then it goes and ends on a bitter sweet note like that and makes you really feel the fleeting nature of life. It's really too good.

But that's exactly what Iyashikei means. Becoming aware of the transience of life and nature - and getting to terms with that. Mono no aware. Without this element of sweet melancholy, it would just be a regular slice-of-life anime.
People call everything Iyashikei these days, even stuff like K-On! - but the only recent shows that qualify are NNB and Tamayura, imo.

You speak the truth, but I thought iyashikei just meant "healing". Guess I should have looked it up. The concept of mono no aware I have felt to strongly in some japanese works but I never knew it was a thing, that's brilliant. Thanks.

The old man is Akari's gondola soul right?

Please guys, stop comparing NNB with Aria.

NNB is just a generic moeblob and it's a insult seeing people calling it "iyashikei".

Alice getting promoted is by far my favorite, but there are a couple of others too.


The one with Akari's goodbye to her gondola (it reminded me of something that happened to me in my childhood and the emotional impact of the episode was even greater).

The episode with Alice's self-imposed rules.

The one where they are trying to enter the realm of the cats.

And basically all of the last couple of episodes, I cried. A lot.

The reason its so good is because all 3 seasons build up to that point, in terms of getting to know the characters, and the theme of them practicing and growing to achieve their goal. I think it's the emotional climax of the series even if the other episodes are the end.

Alice's graduation was too much for me to handle. I generally dislike maru sues mary suing, but Alice getting past both Aika and Akari like that hurt me a bit.

Aria of course. I never get any input so I had to resort to Mary Sue. She was introduced as one, but she definitely needed some work on everything else that wasn't rowing. She trained hard like the other two and eventually overcame her faults.

>>
The headless ghost lady was one of the spookier episodes of anime I've ever seen. For that reason it's my favorite. I think too often horror as a genre fails because we expect certain things out of it. Truly creepy urban legends involve things happening to people who are living their lives and stumbling into mysterious and ambiguous things, just as we experienced it in the midst of a gentle slice of life.
