In another reversal of policy, I decided to give Arakawa Under the Bridge another chance. The characters bothered me, especially the Chief (guy in the kappa suit), but I realized recently that it isn’t too far removed from Nichijou in substance. Nichijou has nice, fluid animation and simple, clean designs that I particularly enjoy, but Arakawa seems to have more interesting characters. After watching the second episode, it started to get a lot more interesting.
I made an animated gif to atone for my sins.
