the story continued as Ric met a lovely homeless girl named Nino, n started living at the riverbank of Arakawa River. Ric was an elite, capable of accomplishing many things all by himself. his father since young, taught him to never be indebted to anyone. after accepting Nino's request, he started living with a bunch of homeless people at Arakawa, which he soon learned that they were a combination of strange people. he had to put up with them, while building his n Nino's love with their constant interference. but once he did, it was an irreplaceable friendship that nothing can replace.
the anime, like its First Season (April 2010), made absolutely no sense yet still made perfect sense at the same time, with clever metaphors n pop-culture references. we loved it! instead of ruining the series with a second season, we were thrilled to enjoy a continuation of where it was left off. it was best to follow the series from its very first season to capture the role played by each character, Nino who claimed that she was a Venusian, Sanchou who was the village chief that claimed to be a 620-year-old Kappa (河童), Sister who was a war veteran cross-dressed in nuns clothing, Star who was a horrible singer wearing a mask in the shape of a star, n many more. the series was awesome for those who wishes to sit back n enjoy some comedy. it was much more in depth than typical comedies. n when it comes to Ric n Nino's romance, it was out of the ordinary yet so sweet!
