Is it just me, or was the animation in this episode a bit poor at times?

Loved Stella's squeak when the stars fell. XD

Overall a very good episode, I hope they patch up the ending nicely.

Nice episode, once again Maria upholds the tittle of baddest bit*h. Loved the ending sequence with Nino and Ric, very endearing, not too weird or overly dramatic, spot on. Plus Kappa is apparently a boss'.

Still the one thing that caught my eye is when Ichinomiya looked at Nino and was reminded by somebody in his past, and he was walking away looked at a picture into his pocket watch. Assuming it to be Ric's mother is most obvious, but then again I cant think of anything else.

I LOL'd at Nino's windmill-hair when she was with Ric's dad.

And I love Toboso Yana's pic at the end. She managed to make Sister look even hotter x3

I love this show. So funny and heartwarming at the same time. Shame that it has one more episode left. Gonna miss this show. I love this season, lots of great shows. Next season seems a bit weak though.

Wasn't the animation, was the crappy subs you went with (Their raws they choose, wait for Nutbladder!).

Was a bit disappointed him and his Dad didn't talk.

I'm kinda torn. On the one hand, I really would love to see a second season. On the other, if they do make one, but totally butcher the series due to a loss of ideas or something, it would really suck.

Kou's dad cracked me up. Seriously, imagine Ikari Gendo from Evangelion acting cool in boxers, it's the same here with the police station scene. I have never seen a guy before being all high and mighty without his pants.

LOL, cookie bitch.

Besides that, this was a very sub-par episode. Shaft QUALITY animation, and formulaic "we need to end this, so here is the corniest thing we can muster, even if the core of the show was so wildly not by-the-numbers as this conclusion" I'm guessing that the mysterious man was Nino's father, and I wonder why I haven't thought more about her family situation in the first place. I assumed she was some kind of spoiled princess that left home for one weird reason or another at the beginning, but now I guess she was as sheltered and brainwashed as Riku, but rebelled instead of becoming like him.

^Lol, didn't expect to see you here this early. KSN hasn't released ep12 yet. Anyways, I thought that the mysterious man was the mayor. The voice was the same. But that is an interesting idea about Nino.

Yeah, I really wanted to talk about it so I picked up Nutbladder. I may watch KSN just to see the difference for myself (it might just be names).

Oh...you know what...I wasn't even listening to the voice. I guess it was the Mayor. Damn...I fail. I guess that gives a quicker conclusion, but it was nice while I was thinking of it.

Haha I'm 100% sure it was the mayor. xDD

The intro was brilliant, imo, and the ending confession was just as good.

5/5 overall.

LMAO shooting stars part was really funny. It's too obvious that it was the kappa who saves the bridge because the sound of the voice actor. Nino holding the phone was really funny, and at the end where Ric's papa got arrest by the police cuz of wearing boxers was really funnyxD

anyways, nice episode, hope the last episode will be awesome:D

The phone thing was funny.

So just one episode left. Hmm, overall this show is not as entertaining as many other shows I'm currently watching. Maybe I'm just starting to get a little tired of this.

Ah~ I really liked this SHAFT comedy anime (though SZS is still a bit better). I can't believe there's only one episode left.

Anyway, yeah Maria rocked as usual and I loved Ric's phone call. So heartwarming.

It's exactly Vietnamese. In English it's called 'chevrotain'.

Hilarious episode. Especially the shooting star part, i nearly laughed to death.

the shooting star idea was awesome specially the endless shooting stars lol. i initially thought it was nino's dad or something that cancelled the project but after looking here and rewatching the episode it is indeed the voice of mayor in there. lol at nino's expression on singing pants and answering the cell

"Its unfair, If he's Full
I feel like I am Full also"

"If you can do,then give it your best shot,
If you think you can do
The think that I can't do"

"I stay with Nino forever"

And what his father can't do and Kou can do?? simple ^^
here my own quote
"I am idiot but I am not Fool"
Kou maybe an idiot living under the bridge despite of being rich
but he is not a fool of not enjoying his life with Nino and the other villagers.Even family regulation cannot change the unbeatable fate of Love.Too bad,His father realize it after his wife left him.I almost cried when he loot at the picture of his wife.

Other people may think a different perspective than I, but this is my feeling toward the this series Arakawa Under the Bridge

Interesting resolution of the plot I must say and good character developments. It was a satisfying episode overall.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

A bit corny, especially the romance part, but still better than most of the other stuff on. I like that Arakawa has a clear theme and a clear way of presenting it.

GO KAPPA POWERS
I always knew Mayor was majorly badass. In a...different way, but still.
Also, go Yana Toboso and her Sister pic *__*

Everything was great, Maria's still abusing and Sister's bleeding as always.
Really loved the ending, Riku said that he wanted to stay forever with Nino.
Riku's dad pants got stolen too, and lol at the last bit....the police said to riku's dad "It's just a pair of pants! Why are you being so arrogant?!" hahaha xDD

So the mystery guy is the mayor. Is he some big rich guy in the real world?
Father gong around with his underwear and being arrested was funny. Especially his attitude to the police. And it seems he had his own Nino at some point in his life.
The similarities with his son are obvious.

Phone call to Nino was nice. Funny and then romantic.
