Storyline

Kou Ichinomiya is a perfect man with a perfect life: he is handsome, smart, self-sufficient, and the young heir to a grand corporation. One day, he falls into the Arakawa River and nearly drowns, but is saved by a young girl named Nino, who lives in a community under a nearby bridge on the Arakawa. It's the Ichinomiya tradition to never be indebted to anyone and settle all accounts, and now Kou owes Nino a life debt. Her request is that he becomes her lover and lives with her. And so Kou begins a new life as a member of the village under the bridge - a village, he discovers, full of self-deluded and eccentric people. There's the musician who wears a star mask, a male war veteran dressed as a nun and his femme-fatale rival who runs a farm, a hairdresser samurai and many others, all led by a man in a green costume. Still, as time passes Kou begins to truly feel at home at the Arakawa under the bridge. Written by Q. Leo Rahman

Poetic Direction but my experience is mixed
13 September 2018 | by puneetsharma9See all my reviews

It's not a bad anime first episode of this element is awesome and totally hilarious are you can't expect to see words coming.

but other episode are also not that good also not all are bad. Animes little bit on poetic side. But have no story. You can find it first episode but after that there is a little bit story development.

Anime intro is awesome maybe it's not because of music but because of art work that put up on intro.

This anime is not for everyone its if you like something like poetic things that have a little story but they have a sense it's not a common sense sense that you can feel then it's very good anime but I just feel it sometime but most of time I just lose it so not perfect for me. But if you have nothing to watch and Jesus want to get a new taste in your mouth you can try this this is a different kind of dish.
