Arakawa Under The Bridge Returning For Second Season

Posted on: June 28, 2010

In news that surprises no one in particular, Shaft’s screwball comedy Arakawa Under the Bridge is heading for another 13-episode run in the near future. There are two reasons that this isn’t much of a surprise: one, Arakawa was one of the few truly watchable shows of this forgettable anime season. Two, the current 13 episodes of the anime have only covered about half of the manga material that’s been released.

So, in the spirit of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” Shaft has made sure that there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that they’ll be animating more Arakawa soon. Heck, the last episode of the current season ended by introducing new characters, which is as sure a sign as any that they’re ready and raring to go for more <s>free money</s> screwball comedy goodness.

I’m totally okay with this announcement, as I’ve been reading the manga lately and really, REALLY like the anime character designs better than the original work. I’m all for a decent comedy that doesn’t look like a punch in the face.
