First I have to say that I have never read the manga or watched the anime, so I don't know how it compares, or how it would effect my opinion. Secondly, I am very fond of strange things so this almost has to be liked by me by default. That said, I really didn't find it all that great. Perhaps because it's weird and I feel like it's something I would make if I were to make dramas, I find myself overly critical; I like this weird thing but not that weird thing; this part is not weird enough, that part is too weird; etc. But really it's mostly just an issue of the characters not being very believable or developed. There's too many characters, and after the initial lol at their eccentricities they become boring gimmicks, and the series ends without any ending, or really without much of anything having happened at all. I suppose we will just have to wait for the movie to see if it makes things any better. Still basically worth watching for a change of pace from the norm, which is always a good thing.
*Update* The movie sucks. It recycles half of the same scenes from the series, and leaves me feeling like I'm watching just to try to find the little Easter egg scenes they randomly toss in. Takes an already underwhelming series and turns it into an absolute bore-fest.

Very bizarre and funny show but I loved it so much that I'll be running to the theatre next year (2012) when the Arakawa movie is released! You'll need to have an open mind and heart to give it a chance. As I see it, all the weird fancy-dressed people are just humans who failed something or didn't fit into society and found there home under the bridge next to the Arakawa river. The show gives you little glimpses of their weird but sweet community life. I personally didn't like the Billy/Jaqueline episode but other than that no complaints!

Haven't watched the movie yet, which works as a final episode, but as far as the drama goes it gives off a fresh and fun feeling. Lots of bizarre humour, lots of deadpan and puns. The format isn't your usual cuppa and needs time to get used to, but it really fits the abstract characters and setting.

I absolutely love the manga and anime, but I couldn't finish this.
