Arakawa Bridge^2 ep:2 – invasion
October 14, 2010
The Venusian Queen is, of course, Nino, whose ability to stuff live fish in people’s mouths is unparalleled. Thus the Earth defender is forced to withdraw… but for how long? I honestly don’t know what to make of these characters yet. Are they related? Are they working for Kou’s father? The second half clearly is related to Nino’s identity, but I guess we still have to wait for it all to make sense.
In the meantime, the new ED was shown, but I was a bit disappointed. The song isn’t terrible, but I was hoping for more kick-ass animation. Instead we got a live-action music video featuring Hoshi. Screw Hoshi, and his tasteless guitar playing. I’ll admit that the idea was somewhat clever, but I was hoping for something as brilliant as the OP.
