Possibly one of the finest anime episodes I've ever seen. I went back and watched it again, as I'm feeling a little glum tonight. The first time I watched it, I had no idea what was coming, so it was as much a surprise to me as it was to Alice. This time, however, I knew what was about to happen... and I still got a goofy grin on my face.
That's good storytelling.
I find that I really don't want ARIA to end. After 49 episodes (to date) and one OVA, you'd think that the show would start to feel like it was dragging on, but it has stayed fresh for me. Even Kanon didn't give me that feeling... when it ended, it was time for it to end.
In fact, only one other series has evoked the "don't be over yet!" feeling from me: Azumanga Daioh, my favorite show of all time.
I believe that, with episode 09, ARIA has joined Azumanga and Kanon as My Favorites. Nobody is more surprised than me.

And I have no idea why...

Do permalinks work in any of your other categories?

I browsed down the mainpage to the post in question, clicked the permalink, and it worked just fine.

Of course, I doubled the number of categories a few months ago... *sigh*

It's fixed in 1.2 (due out mid-April), but I'll also need to run a script to fix the existing errors.
