The first season of the series consisting of 13 episodes, produced by Shaft and directed by Akiyuki Shibu.
As the first season came to a close, a second season was confirmed. I really cannot say that I’m glade a second season is on its way. The first season of Arakawa had different pace from other anime, by means of the storyline falling into place almost perfectly (note: I said “almost perfectly”, because nothing is perfect).
Pulling off a new season is a hard thing too, when the first season was a huge success (aaaaah, how can someone top the rich guy meets homeless hot girl theme). In my opinion only one out of ten anime can pull a new season off (more like fishing without bait).
Remember people I didn’t say, that the second season of Arakawa under the bridge would be a bust.
