Arakawa Under the Bridge – 03: Tell All Confessional

Speak for yourself Riku… When you have to live in a squad bay you’d wish you could be alone.

Poverty isn’t a funny thing but SHAFT seems to have side stepped the problem by just making them all weirdos that live by the river. Riku might be the richest guy there but like some slow witted Orc he doesn’t appreciate how Nino subconsciously visits him at his pad. Star-face amply demonstrates how much lose and fail smokers are when he demonstrates what a faithless cur he is when he doubts Nino’s chastity and modesty. Being a coward and a son-of-a-bitch Star-face uses his fake tears to get Sister to help his sorry cause. That sorry series of episodes gave me a deep loathing for Star-face for his cowardly antics aren’t worthy to be blessed by love. He had years to make his move but lacked the courage to ask, let him rot in his loneliness and may the cancer kill him all the faster for his existence is a blight that mars Nino’s light. As for a BIG FIGHT thank goodness Sister fired off a few rounds to get Star-face to shut his pie hole. Blessed is the Church of Violence for there are such bad sheep like Star-face that need extra sermons…

Riku might be impure in his intentions for asking Nino for a date but when she shot his plans down he had to draw upon his love and affection to ask thing s he should have asked in the first place. Riku might have the slows but at least he seems to be going somewhere. Having women chase him all his life did grate on my plebeian sensibilities but he has been knocked down a few and Nino has humbled him. Also i derive a smug sense of superiority in that Riku likes pink shirts and manicures… There wasn’t too much of Nino this episode other than her floating down origami grass boats they certainly saved the best for last as Nino wore that dress magnificently and over-awed that over confident Riku. I too am curious as to who Nino was before she became Nino, and the reasons as to why she has chosen to live under a bridge. It’s not a traditional romcom but I like all the same since Riku’s arrogance gets countered for the most part and he is showing some Patrick-esque behavior whic is always a plus. hopefully his path to falling in love with Nino will be full of humorous grand gestures but like Pat and Katie, and in the words of Master Asia what is the meaning of victory if one hasn’t suffered? I just hope Star-face suffers long for his lowly methods that mark him an enemy of true love. Besides his suffering appeals to my sadistic habits and I wish him no shortage of disappointment and may he never want for a lack of fake tears that make Noe recoil in disgust.

I am surprised she didn’t sleep under the couch…

Son one day Star-face was coming home after getting his daily laddie mag when…

Star-face wishes that someone were waiting for him…

What a puss-cake asking Sister to do your fighting…

Star-face is  also a smoker a sure sign that he is stupid and wasteful of his meager budget. Oh and at least Riku has a room…

Sure beats spending nights by yourself Star-face…

Time to put the fear of Zeus into that heathen and cowardly Star-face.

Oh and Noe disapproves of Star-face’s tears of jealousy.

Yes even Noe finds you disgusting…

Hmmm may be there will be some mecha action after all…

Minus 200 points for using shining face instead of SHINING FINGER!

Seems Riku has an onee-sama fetish too…

Don’t forget to mention how she washed your hair too Riku…not that Star-face could have experienced it.

More times than you’ll ever experience…

The hearts he speaks of are most like black cancerous blobs like the one that beats in his chest…

So disappointing Riku… you don’t even offer her breakfast?!

I suppose not but Riku is a toy that Nino can play with…

Fact is no one wants to be his friend…

Maybe Riku is but he’s with Nino and you’re not…

Think of it this way Riku that fence wasn’t so much there to protect you from him as it was to prevent Star-face from getting an ass kiciking…

Why the fuck not, only Star-face make sure to do your own fighting instead of crying to Sister…

Good the old bastard is old may he die sooner so that the world may be rid of him.

He tells him self that every day and yet he never had the balls to do it…for years on end.

Certainly not some old five pointed prick that wastes what little money he has on cigarettes…

DO IT.

Just look at that wrinkly old hag…

Good luck, and make sure he doesn’t catch the bouquet at the wedding.

That pink shirt says otherwise…

Just once I want Nino to call him a rich bastard…

Hello there cherry-kun…

I guess he hates chocolate…

Good news is that Miss Ohba was one of them valentines spammers…

Add another zero to that man’s paycheck!

Yes why don’t fan artists sign their shit, oh wait…

Needs MOAR Sailor Moon…

Riku may be trying to one up Patrick, but Riku lacks PASSION.

Riku also had is nails done…

Well if you want to use Patricks methods…try, try, and try again.

I approve very Patrick-like there Riku.

Yeah maybe Riku would actually do more than rubber stamp and create gaffes.

WHAT NO KISSU?! I AM DISSAPOINT.

Nino was kind enough to applaud Riku’s crude visuals.

TOTALLY WORTH IT.

Nino also wants it as an Omnibus.

Don’t you mean this and that…?

Don’t forget to say please Nino is a lady after all.

So she must be strong with this called love right…

Get use to it pal, for WHAT IS THE MEANING OF VICTORY IF ONE HASN’T SUFFERED?!

Jesus will be making an appearance soon.

Half the fun is figuring out why…

Damn Right! Now you’re talking Riku.

That should have been the primary plan…

CHEAPSKATE!

Nino date all set. READY…GOOOOOOOO!

That makes two, dman Riku she’s moving faster than you… better catch up.

I wonder how Riku figured out Nino’s sizes…

Quit griping it hasn’t hit the 45 minute mark yet…

Well aren’t we being a little faithless there Riku…

Make up your mind.

Only now do you realize…

Nino is a hime I just know it.

    Nino is some kind of mesmerizing, ain’t she?

      Indeed she is, and the funny thing is Nino doesn’t fall into the usual mold of typical heroine given her simple dress and style.

    Very funny. Hoshi might deserve your wrath, but it is energy wasted on him. I see a very sad future for Mr. Five Points. He has obviously settled into his role as loser. You can tell because he pretends to be a big shot by being boss of a gang composed of little kids (the twins).

      Let it never be said that it is not fun to kick someone when they are down, there are times when must kick those who have decided to kneel.

      Even if Hoshi is down his presence still lingers…it must be PURGED. Preferably with FIRE.

    Hah, I see you’re warming up to Riku. The guy has progressed a long way since he first met Nino and I think he deserves a bro-fist of respect for that

      He’s making progress, but he still has much to learn…

    Progressed a long way, Scamp? You mean he’s only flailing his arms 80% of the time now? :) Seriously though, for making Nino do a double-take with his “if it’s not perfect” he deserves some props.. he’s finally acting a bit like a real human. Too bad he’s a total tosser for pretty much the rest of the episode. I can’t wait to see what his reality’s really like without his delusions of grandeur.

    I’m glad Arakawa’s starting to have some decent moments now, At this rate in a few more eps it might just redeem itself and not be a total spastic waste of eyeball porn.

      I thought Riku did alright though his competition in the Nino Sweepstakes is decidedly weak and utterly contemptible.

    Whenever I watch an episode of this show I just think about how awesome it would be if Araragi was trying to get Shiki in his harem. Also, love the hair comb over he does to make him look spiffy. By the way, nice job taking Riku’s line about sister being a brother completely out of context. XD

      Context is what you make of it…

    looking for new anime to watch have any to share?that anime looks interesting.

    I’m pretty sure Recruit offered Nino breakfast; she just declined. AND I wouldn’t be surprised if Star Head’s tears were real, haha. I’m sure cries to Sister about his lack of progress with Nino all the time.
