Arakawa under the Bridge

For ages 13 above

At a young age, Kou Ichinomiya was always told and trained to never rely on others. Even when he was born, as he grew up his father has always made him repay him after doing something for Kou, no matter what it is.

One day, hes pants were stolen and hung above the bridge by a bunch of kids. He is offered help by a girl with beautiful blond hair, but due to his asthma (he gets it when he rely on people) he does not accept the offer. While he climes up on the top of the bridge, part of the bridge collapses and he falls into the river with a steel pole preventing him from reaching the surface. The strange girl saves him, and since she saved his life, he must repay her in any means possible. She doesn’t want anything, not even millions of yen (Kou is extremely rich). She then decides for him to be her boyfriend and live with everyone else who lives under the bridge.

A hilarious anime filled with completely random yet absolutely funny conversations.

    Every child has an unseen egg within their hearts. These eggs show their dreams and who they really are, and when it has hatched the child whom owns the egg would have a “Guardian Character”.

    To Amu Hinamori, the main character, has a different story. She was a new student at Seiyo Elementary where everyone sees and thinks of her as “cool and spicy”. Due to her timid nature, she ends up acting cool and snobby when in fact she is just a normal and cute girl.  One day, she wishes for courage to show who she really is.

    The next day, she wakes up with three mysterious eggs. She then wonders what they are. While she was on her way to school, an egg started to move, which caused “the guardians” (Amu happened to have a crush on the leader) to notice. Amu snobs the leader due to her timidness. During a school assembly, she wishes to apologize to the guardian leader, she hears a strange voice and suddenly shouts that she likes the leader but is then rejected. Amu doesn’t know what caused her to do that and due to embarrassment, she runs out the school and later finds that the strange voice was one of her eggs which has hatched.

    She then meets more characters onward through the story along with her other guardian characters.

    A great anime and manga about friendship, dreams, and romance.
