[End] Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge: Mindless yet funny, Stupid Simple yet Brilliantly Ended

As far as random comedy goes, I think this is probably as random as it gets. There isn't really much to say about this anime other than there are lots of random characters, and lots of random events.

The ending arc, however, in my opinion is quite interesting--it literally provided an alternative view on what could all these nonsense be about in matter of seconds. Hell, for all we know, that could be where the author got all of her inspiration.

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 81 (Maybe...)
Comedy: 87 (All over the place)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 81 (...)
Sound/Music: 81 (...)
Character: 89 (Lots)
Plot: N/A
Ending: 88 (Intriguing)

Re-watch value: N/A

Overall: 83 - mindless and fun

Recommendation: Mindless . If that's what you're looking for, go for it. Otherwise, unless you need a background noise anime, there's no need to spend 4 hours just for this.
