On the beautiful banks of the Arakawa River, it is lively as ever. Now known as "Recruit," Kou Ichinomiya has adjusted to the troubles his unconventional neighbors brew daily. However, the atypical scene is about to get even rowdier when their community adds a couple of oddball enthusiasts: a tall, muscular woman calling herself Amazoness, followed by her loyal Tengu henchmen; and Captain, self-proclaimed Commander of Earth's Defense Force against Venusians. In spite of all the commotion, Recruit gradually learns more about his lover Nino and the story that shaped her.

Well, well, well, what do we have here? It's Arakawa Under The Bridge X Bridge, or as I like to call it, Bridgeception. Because let's face it, who doesn't love a good bridge?

This anime is a sequel to the original Arakawa Under The Bridge, which was already pretty weird. But somehow, X Bridge manages to up the ante even further. We've got a cast of oddball characters, including a guy who thinks he's from Venus, a girl who dresses up like a nun, and a guy who wears a kappa suit. It's like a freak show, but with more laughter ...

Mixed Feelings
I know nothing about the Anime Industry. I'm just a casual watcher. So, when a second season doesn't advance too much from the first one I do not know who to blame, the manga creator or the anime scripters.

Despite this, the first season offered us some development in the story, pointing out there was actually something else aside from the absurd idea of people living happily under a bridge.

What a disappointment...

The season started off with such promise but completely faceplanted. Maybe I expected too much from the start... A deepening of Nino and Riku's relationship, clarity on Nino's current situation and her past, Riku resolving issues with his father, Riku's growth as a person through seeing different ways of living and interacting with life under the bridge, but instead we get... nothing. Just unfunny gags that run ad-infinitum. I guess it wouldn't be a problem if they show didn't tease some sort of serious plot and actual character growth then just compelely ignore it. In season one it felt like a quick pace, ...
