Yes, your brain was stoped. :p
You post two times.
Anyways, liked this episode but i prefer the 12.
For the show, like a 8/10 on me.
I not expected so much after Dance in the Vampire Bund, i was false. :)

Awesome, Billy is the same voice as Madao. Great series, this and Tatami Galaxy are my two favorites easily, DRRR, Angel Beats, and Working!! kinda fell of in the end and their finales were somewhat a letdown.

Still Arakawa kept its same formula much intact, random comedy with a great spread of characters with the subtle romance of Nino. At least 1 show from this season confirmed their return. Although I can only hope season 2 wont have a sophomore jinx and is still as interesting as season 1.

Same here. Even for a show like Arakawa, this was random. LOL.

Anyway, even though it sure didn't feel like a season finale, the episode was entertaining throughout and very funny at certain points. I don't think I'll ever tire of the wacky folks living along the river and Ric's often shocked reactions to their antics and sensibilities.

Can't wait for the next season. I really hope they'll delve into Nino's past a bit. She's still very much a mystery woman right now.

It was an enjoyable last episode, even though it doesn't feel like one ^^

I want to ride on a real-life horse merry-go-round, must be fun!
Sister's roller coaster scared the hell out of me though.

I really liked the haircut part with sister, was like lol.
Overall, series stayed the same throughout, may be a good thing. Some episodes had dull moments, I give it a 7/10.

Will see season 2 I guess, since I watched the whole first season anyways.

Intentional cliffhanger for S2 probably.

-Last Samurai was great. Billy being voiced by Madao/Gendo was great. Theme park was hilarious (seriously marbles out the anus?). It did not really feel like a finale at all. But that's probably for the whole second season thing.

-I watched Arakawa because I knew SHAFT can pull decent comedy when it's just comedy and the show did not disappoint. It had a great cast of characters that had probably some of the greatest quirks I've seen in a comedy anime. The faults that I had with the show namely lay in its necessary "turn your brain off" function but that's not really a bad thing. I also kind of wished we had a few more episodes involving the romance.

All in all, it kept me watching so I gave it an 8/10.

Not one of SHAFT's best, but relatively funny and I look forward to the second season. This was one of the better episodes, if not the best - Iron Miaden Coaster was priceless.

7/10

This get an 8/10 from me because of the fact that it stayed mostly the same throughout. Plus the show seemed like it had a few lessons that it subtly displayed.

The scene at barber's was my fave this episode. I laughed at Hoshi's mask (and the sound effect when it plopped back on)
Glad there's going to be a second season. I genuinely enjoyed this series. I'd give it 8/10, but I just have have to bump it up to 9/10 simply to express how much I love Sister and Maria <3

Excellent episode. Perfect mix of comedy and serious moments. The few moments of Ric and Nino are the best parts of this episode. Nino looks awesome in that dress. Rofl at the others using only flashlights.

Overall, this is a great show, one of the best this season. Though there were times it was boring, the show mostly made me laugh and the romanctic parts are very good. It ended openly but if it wasn't for the announcement of second season this would also be as disappointing as the other shows that ended for the past days. I was going to give this 10/10 but I'll go at 9/10 because I didn't like Stella's transformations. Guess I'll try the manga to see if it was faithful and funny.

Solid and enjoyable production but this kind of humour doesn't suit my taste perfectly. 7.5/10 and waiting for new SZS from Shaft.

Very nice and somewhat sweet ending. The animation was pretty great, too. I hope it stays funny when season 2 rolls around and doesn't lose steam like SZS did.

Aha. Loved how Tetsurou stuck his middle finger up during Ric's lesson xDDD

Eh..not too excited for season 2 since I didn't really find the first series that enjoyable, but whatever. It was alright. I'll watch it anyways for the sake of completion.

This is the single best ending this show could ever hope for: An ending that has all the scale of an ending, but isn't an ending. Meaning we get more. And this show fucking deserves more. I mean, how often do you actually find an anime that is genuinely this funny? OK, so Keitaro getting the shit beaten out of him after a comic misunderstanding was kinda funny the first time I saw it, but after seeing it played again and again and again untold times gets incredibly stale. At the same time, I've never like Shaft's usual sense of humour... As strange as this may sound coming from a British person, randomness =/= comedy. However, Arakawa made me laugh my ass off on numerous occasions, and for that it deserves quite a high score. At the same time, characters like Ko who could have easily been unlikeable pricks wind up being thoroughly loveable.

Overall, I'm rating this 9/10.

Only one quip with this particular episode, though: The mayor's comments about ass marbles. Um, what?

Arakawa Under the Bridge was produced by SHAFT & the fact that the ending was a SHAFT ending gave me a 9/10. I wasn't disappointed since I didn't expect a totally great epilogue.

Great gags in this series and Sister's antics kept me watching.

The manga look like following the anime (or the opposite if you prefer. :p).
Anyways, you disliked Hokuto no Stella transformation ?
Sad. :D

It definitely felt like an end to a season and not to a series because at the end, if it felt like the ending of any ordinary episode. Anyway, the season was interesting. The humour didn't always click with me but it was entertaining.

8/10

Eh, it was kinda funny, but it was in the same vein as all those other done-to-death harem anime jokes. Slightly better than the usual fare, but just as generic.

It's not only 'as generic'. IMHO, it sux. HARD, and even more emphasized by the way they pathetically tried to squeeze as much 'milk' as possible outta that TRAP whom I don't even bother to recall his name.... :/

To think that I was so hyped up for that back in the days just because of 'Oonuma Shin' but I guess even his genius cannot make up for the failure of the contents....

This really does not feel like an ending. I hope for a second season because there would be missing something other way. Very good series.
Now for something clompletly different.
