arakawa under the bridge x bridge 01

Arakawa Under the Bridge makes its season two debut – Bridge x Bridge – with all the same old fun that we were used to in the first season. All the same characters, the same rivalry between Recruit and Hoshi, and the same old combat-ready Sister. We don’t even have to guess whether or not the Amazon Woman is going to play an important role since her first appearance this season was so significant, they’ve postponed elaborating on it till next week.

Since the conclusion of the last season…

If you were dying to see some love between Recruit and Nino, look no further than the cute new opening where Nino unabashedly plants one on her man servant.

If you missed seeing Recruit and Hoshi bicker and battle it out against each other, you’re treated to an early morning argument followed by a man-to-man foot race where, unsurprisingly, both are losers.

If you couldn’t wait to hear more of Maria’s blood-spurt-worthy words of affection, she calls her beloved a pervert at the end of the episode. If you ran out of sweet things to say to your girlfriend between the two seasons, Billy and Honey Bee provide you with a couple of lines to add to your book.

But none of this matters because there is one thing that trumps every other character and every possible story arc the creators can throw at us: Nino’s past.

Clearly someone was listening to all the comments and questions and ponderings about Nino’s past – who she was, how she was raised, and how she ended up Under the Bridge. This should make the entire second season worth watching – even though I would’ve watched it for the same old humour, the same idiosyncratic characters, and those flash shots of scenery and eyeballs.

      Thanks! I did my best to distract people from the fact that I didn’t actually review the first episode.

    Apart from the bit about eyeballs (though glad to see that these seem to being used in moderation this season), I heartily agree with you. And ah, I forgot about Billy and Jaqueline – he’s such a smoothie!
