Anime Summary Review: Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge Episodes 10, 11, and 12

Rather than the longer reviews with all sorts of pictures and such, this is just a quick summary review. For a series that I’ve already been watching for several episodes, there’s not much of a reason to go into much detail. At this point in the series, you’re either still watching it (so you already know what’s going on and a long detailed run-down of everything is not really needed), or don’t care. So, without further ado:

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge Episode 10 – For some unexplained reason there is a half-kiloton weight limit for the rocket to Japan, so everyone goes on a strict diet. P-ko leads the girls on a strawberries-only diet, while Sister leads a strict military program. The Metal Brothers get all Hans and Franz pumped up, and one of them goes on an egotrip over his new body.
My thoughts: Meh.
A better review: Caraniel’s Ramblings

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge Episode 11 – At a festival, the Amazoness ends up falling for Hoshi instead of Recruit. Since she is unable to express her true feelings, she sets up an elaborate trap, drawing the guys away to a secluded beach so that Hoshi could rescue the Amazoness from drowning.
My thoughts: Meh.

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge Episode 12 – Everyone engages in a massive battle to see who is strongest, the winner being granted one wish that everyone must agree to help make come true. In the first round, several of the weaker fighters face off all at once, with P-ko unexpectedly coming out on top. In the “death match” round (where everyone has a balloon on the top of their head that must be popped), they fall one-by-one until only Maria and Sister are left.
My thoughts: Meh.

My verdict: – As if you couldn’t tell, I have become fairly unimpressed with this show. It’s not bad, mind you, just not very interesting…all more of the same. Perhaps they should have left well enough alone after the end of the first season. Meh. One more episode left, and I’m not expecting much.

Up next: Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt (finale), Psychic Detective Yakumo (finale), Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge (finale)
