[New April 2010] Arakawa Under the Bridge

Japanese title: 荒川アンダー ザ ブリッジ
Comedy / Drama / Supernatural
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: A guy whose motto for life is not to be in debt to anybody was saved from drowning by a girl who's homeless and lives under a bridge. She claim she's from Venus. He has to repay his debt to her according to his belief, but the only thing she wants is to be his girlfriend and have him move in with her under the bridge.

Voice actress: Maaya Sakamoto (坂本真綾) as Nino. It's not difficult to recognize that she's the voice of Ceil Phantomhive of Kuroshitsuji as well as Shiki from Kara no Kyoukai.

First impression score: 85 ~ Wacky

Personal comments: This is one messed up wacky anime. At the moment, I really don't know whether they're really what they say they are. I assume we'll eventually find out?

For some reason I found the first episode to be very good. The second episode has followed suit so I would give this anime so far an 85.

I get a Gintama vibe from this anime. Just the randomness like the Kappa dude and other people reminds me a lot of it...

I never really got into Gintama because it seems that they were trying to tell a story, but really not doing it. Arakawa Under the Bridge however, gave you the impression that they aren't here for anything that has a plot to begin with. That's why I'm enjoying this but didn't like Gintama at all.
