Pretty crappy episode if you ask me. I almost want to bump it down to a 7, but that just wouldn't be fair. I'm happy that it gets a second season, but I hope it's not as disappointing as Natsu no Arashi's sequel.

Iron Maiden Cosater was epic win. Apart from that, it was a perfectly random and funny episode as usual. ?ot brilliant by any means but interesting enough for me to watch the second season. 8/10

simply wow

Arakawa is the best slice of life anime I watch this past year.

After failed witl vampire loli, Shinbo trying to go back with some unique humour and it works again. I enjoyed this series a lot. There were the laughing time, much of it, but they doesn't put out the real life drama parts. I really impressed with much if the quotes i see in this show.

Anyway, awesome show, really looking forward to the second season

Now, with this introduction, not having a second season would be stupidity incarnate. Luckily, no such stupidity detected, due to the existence of a coming season xD
And there's a censored Hoshi-face as well xD
Oh Maria, you're so funny~

Haircutting scene was amazing! Really funny.
Rather like that bench scene as well, but for other reasons :3

Yay, new season \o/

When the plot got rolling near the end, there was a stagnation of quality, but this episode got back to the goodness that once was. I can honestly say Arakawa is probably the first show to make me laugh out loud and hard in a long while. I pretty much marathoned this show, which is something I usually don't do very often. Overall, it's a good 9/10 for me, and I can't wait for the 2nd season.

I have to echo the majority's sentiment. It honestly didn't feel like the final episode, and 12 probably would've made a better spot to end the first season. Sort of a weak episode too. That being said, I did like how they decided to randomly focus on these three "unique" characters. Never change, Arakawa. XD

All in all, a consistently funny anime from beginning to end, with such a great cast of characters. This show had me dying at times. Usually, comedy in anime never works for me, but Arakawa delivered in spades. 8/10

Can't wait for the next season!

Cannot wait for the 2nd season!!

A warming finale to a good comedy. I came into this expecting some romance but they seemed to focus more on Riku and his father..and jokes sometimes got dragged out too long or were just lame like Riku's assistant oh man he makes me sick..

Also felt there could be more development..I wanted to see more of the Chief without his suit and Hoshi seems like a chick magnet without his mask..and of course more Riku and Nino.Guess il be checking out season 2, invested too much into these unique charss XD

this didn't feel much like an ending really. The episode was kind of mediocre too. And kind of late introducing new characters aren't we?

Maybe all this is because of a second season.

Was a little annoyed about the apparent "oh hey it's a throwaway episode so here is some leftover crap" way the episode started, but the amusement park segment was nice and left the show off on a good note.

I had been looking forward to enjoying this series, but I was sadly only disappointed by it. The only reason I persevered through all 13 episodes was I found the character of Nino at least to be mildly interesting. I was hoping to find out about her past, or at the very LEAST, some interaction/progress between her and Riku. But, nothing. And I can't seem to care at all about any of the other characters. The whole series left me with a very empty feeling. I'm hoping the sequel will be much more tolerable and will give the fans what they really want (i.e. the topics already stated).

This isn't really a rant and certainly not meant to bash (in other words, no need to lash out. >_>), just my sentiments upon finishing the series.

This show is garbage. Its just random shit that sometimes fails and is sometimes funny. It shows no plot what so ever and is consisted of a majority of fillers. They should have focused more on the romance aspect with nino as well as finishing what they start. Seriously wtf is with the ending to the whole the bridge area is not for sell. Like honestly im assuming that shady character was the kappa without his suit but literally you exspect them to continue the main story but the next episode is bullshit filler that showcases random characters after the situation is over. WTF

Sister was real fun! and gag contests too.

I don't expect any story or nice plots because its SHAFT. This is like a calmed down version of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. Seiyuu's are the same too. And they're awesome:D

Great ending! 3D theatre LOL.

Well, I've got to say, this anime was so much better than I expected it to be... Looking forward to season 2, it's already out, lucky me lol.

Second season here I come.

I don't get people who complain about the lack of plot. There was never an intended one to begin with, the whole show's one big joke. And I'm loving it.

i thought the birds and bees were th other way around, did my mom lie to me?!!?
3D theater was awesome
nice to see nino in that dress again

On paper this anime doesn't sound amazing. However i thoroughly enjoyed it. Anime like these can just go off of series of interesting events, rather than a long drawn out plot.


can't wait for the second season

Wow. Awesome show... I liked how the world, although INSANE, was simple. There weren't too many characters/plot lines & I liked how you got to connect the dots yourself in some respects.

Although I don't think I can give this a 10/10... (It's near-perfect, minus an episode and some anti-climactic moments).. it's a solid 9/10 for me , and it would be a 9.5/10 if that were possible.

Bravo Shaft. With this show and Madoka, you can add me to your fan-base :)

The ending was OK. I still don't know WTH am I watching, actually I wanted to drop this anime since episode 2 but I can't because I've never dropped anime before. Sometime it was boring. The people at the bridge are abnormal. Well... Ko is rich, smart, genius etc... but he stayed at riverbank. I think it was wasted. (maybe not) He could have everything. He should go back.
The reason why he didn't go back because he finally found his happiness (I think)
I enjoyed this show somehow ,it was enjoyable. I'm now gonna watch the second season.

Probably going to go down as one of my all time favorite comedy series, because it stayed consistently hilarious and had a great cast of characters, good music, nice voice work, very good art and animation, and so on. It also had a message, such as Riku's troubles with his father and so on. I'm going to wait on the second season for now, until I get some other series finished up.
