About this show

Ko Ichinomiya's family motto is "Never be indebted to anyone," but after losing his pants and falling into the Arakawa River, he quickly finds himself in debt to his savior, the cutely insane Nino who happens to live under the bridge. To repay her, he vows to help her with her desire to "experience love." Along the way he'll meet the river's other residents, including a hot-blooded kappa, a Sister in drag, and a literal rock star. The love story between Ko (aka Rec) and Nino is often humorous, sometimes bittersweet. This surreal comedy depicts the exciting lives of these two and all the other maniacal residents of Arakawa under the bridge.

Note worthy so far in this interpretive series. Nino don't have to feel she and a total stranger are living together as lovers. Diversity is valuable, hygiene is valuable cavity diary lol, leisure is valuable esp. when sharing amongst quality friends, learning to swim, girls self defense is valuable, I could be delusional yet it keeps me engage. Kudo to one of a kind grandpa, esp. rocking his receding hairline. So far
