Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge episode 13 [final]: This is the way the bridge ends, not with a bang but a whimper.

Alas, Ric, I fear the applause may be too little too late… ‘Tis the season finale and, to be perfectly honest, I don’t know if I should be sad or relieved. There was a lot left to be desired, but there were also flashes of the comedic brilliance that I most associate with this show […]

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge episode 12: The plot is dead! Long live the plot!

My money’s on Sleeping Beauty, then again… Clearly, the plot in this series is a rather amorphous being. In other words, it’s the penultimate epi and, rather than handing out boarding passes for the Venus-bound rocket we saw at the end of the last epi, the gang play games instead. Literally. A Battle Royale style […]

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge episode 10: Flash of the Titans

Thank God for censors. All together, now: ‘KOU SAMA! GO SUMMER! KOU SAMA! GO!!’ …Er, I’d carry on a bit more, but they didn’t sub the rest of this Takai-centric OP after that point. But no matter, because, even just 58 seconds into this epi, we can tell that the Shaft A-listers must have returned […]

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge episode 9: Arakawa Under the Weather?

Firstly, we waited over a week for the subs to come out this time. Now, this isn’t so bad, given that fansubbers are gorgeous by definition and are allowed to have lives. However, to wait so long for an epi that had practically zero plot and character development and hardly any lols let alone LOLs, […]

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge episode 8: My super almost-ex-girlfriend

She looks how we feel. Let’s see, the bloody Amazoness returns (booo!) and proceeds to try and break up Ric x Nino (BOOO!), yet helps to turn this epi into one of the best yet (WHAAAAAT?!).

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge episode 7: Let’s Get Physical

And you wonder why men are so reluctant to go to the Doctors. This epi sees a significant number of the characters in various states of undress and change of costume, before later testing if they can all live together in deliciously close proximity without going any more mental than they already are. And if […]

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge episode 6: Manning Up

Yummy. Major developments for all you plot-watchers this week. Of course, by ‘plot’, I mean the what’s-the-deal-with-Nino’s-past plot. And we also get to see (well, sort of) our favourite kappa in Badass Mode. And Nino x Ric in Couple Mode. And all three of them in Manly Mode. Wait.

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge episode 5: The Return of the Space Captain.

Try the other way around… sort of. This week, Ric wakes up with another man in his bed, then later goes off to perv on Billy and the bee bimbo celebrating a romantic anniversary. Tut tut, Ric, what possible reasons could there be for such behaviour…?

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge episode 4: The Shoujotastic House of Horror Special!

Is it just me, or can anyone else not take their eyes off him?! *Continues staring.* Ah, Arakawa. As much as I loved last week’s epi, I lost count of how many times I literally LOL-ed during this one. Two words: comedy goldrush. Or, in a few more words, presenting: ‘Arakawa – The Dorama’ and […]

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge episode 3: Hell hath no fury like a Venusian bird woman scorned

No-Face Nino. Sorry for the lateness with this one, m’dears (don’t cha just hate relatives who randomly invite themselves over to stay, and equally inconsiderate and lingering colds?! Nuff said). Well – for those of us who wanted more of Nino’s past, we certainly got it in this epi. Er, sort of…
