  • didnt get the ending it desrved.
    the show first appeared to me on crunchy roll around my freshman year of high school. i needed to take a break from the grueling 130+ episodes of Hunter X hunter, so i peaked into my queue and started watching Arakawa. The anime hooked onto me with its bright appealing visuals, humor, and amazing character designs. i was especially invested in the main pairs backstory's. however as good as the ...

  • Far Exceeded Expectations, Truly a Pleasure to have Seen
    Arakawa Under the Bridge is not an ordinary show. It’s one that attempts to subvert the myths and biases of modern society, and has an overarching theme of accepting differences. I would definitely recommend watching this.

    Our main character, Rec, is someone who has it all- wealth, fame, intelligence, wit. However, he both figuratively and literally falls from his place of glory. When we ...

  • Hilarious slapstick comedy
    This is one of the few shows on here that when you search by genre and check the box for comedy, it's actually laugh out loud funny. I'm so glad they did a second season!

    That's all I had to say but it wants me to write more characters..............

  • I say it's a 3 star anime
    The art reminds of the monogatari series. It's funny with rarely any romance in it. The relationship between Kou (Recruit) and Nino is more of one comforts the other or one watches the other. The characters are odd, but they're odd in a good way. Sister and Maria seems like the comedic type of couple due to Maria's insults to Sister which causes his war scar to open and leak out blood. The opening ...

  • Underrated must-watch show!
    I'm very glad that I came across this hidden gem.

    Fell in love from first episode and it keeps getting better.

    Great characters, character development, story line, and an abundance of comedy to keep you hooked and entertained.

    Some parts are hilarious, and some parts catch you right on the feels.

    Its a psychological romance comedy worth watching.
    Funny and unpredictable and also cute. Every character with maybe the exception of nino has some strange psychological issue. Its almost like a semi homeless commune of crazy people. Even the lead character Rec who is arguably the most normal has some issues that I am sure a psychologist would love to take a look at and his are nothing compared to the rest. Its basically a crazy cake of funny. The ...

  • Best comedy you'll watch
    This show is quite amazing through and through. There's not a single episode I saw that I didn't like or laugh out loud, It's 95% comedy, 3% romance, 1% fighting, 1% mystery. I challenge anyone to watch one episode and not enjoy it, otherwise you don't know what's funny.

  • A Romance Anime I can support
    I'm they type that doesn't watch shojo anime and romance too often. I originally looked for this because I was looking for more comedy anime. But it's a romantic, sci-fi, comedy, slice of life anime....if I had to give it categories, but really, it's just awesome.

    You've got a silver spoon heir to a fortune 500 company stranded on a bridge whose pants were stole by a group of mean looking ...

  • Had me laughing every single episode xD
    This comedy romance is really well done! Most of the jokes rely on facial expressions due to reactions and also a bit of satire very happy to have found and makes me real proud to be a premium member of the CrunchyRoll Community!

    ~~~Stay Toasty my Friends!!

    Rather enjoyable, with good music
    Coming from other Shaft/Akiyuki Shinbo shows such as Bakemonogatari, Madoka Magica, and Mekakucity Actors, I came into this show with rather high expectations. While this certainly won't go upon the top of my list of favorite animes, it was still rather enjoyable and will have a special place in my heart.

    The first few episodes are spent introducing you, and the main character Rec, to the other ...
