Arakawa Under the Bridge 2 has helped me make my decision on whether I like this anime. If you have read my review for the first series, you could blatantly tell I was undecided.
“There was only one episode out of the whole 12 that made some sort of sense compared to the others.”
This is an anime to watch one episode at a time perhaps once a day, maybe every two days. Your brain will struggle to take in much more after that. It continues to be as weird as the first one. The story for Arakawa isn’t linear whatsoever. In fact I don’t even think there is a line for the story to be linear on, it is that off track. There was only one episode out of the whole 12 that made some sort of sense compared to the others. I honestly think that the humor is out of our reach, as it is just plain crazy! May I add, you get introduced to three new characters in this anime. A woman supposedly from the Amazon with a high pitched and a deep voice. A man with a bird for a head, and a pretty girl character who is totally in love with the guy with the bird head…enough said.
The series is meant to continue with the Nino and ‘Rec’ love story. As mentioned previously I don’t feel it really continues, it just zigzags all over the place.
I had to get my reading glasses that go on top of my normal glasses, to read the subtitles again, and when they go quite fast with not so normal content, you can get a little overwhelmed.
I don’t know what much there is to say about this anime apart from I have decided I do not like it, it is weird.
