    Re: [Featured] Arakawa Under the Bridge by NAKAMURA Hikaru

    For the rest of volume 4 ~chapter 83-90 & 91-99...

    The chapter starts with a little glimpse of Hoshi(Star) without his mask.
    I love when they showed Nino with shoulder-lengthed hair on Star's flashback story.

    The highlight chapter for me is the crazy marathon competition, where Recruit, Star, Sister, Chief (kappa), and Whitey participated. The event and result was something unexpected & hilarious as well.

    Just noticed also that Whitey-san has quite some hidden talents despite his white lines obsession.

    volume 5 and vol. 6 are up already. Some of the recent events/new characters in the anime are also seen here.
    I find more mystery on Nino's identity after reading vol. 6.
    Also love the chapter Entrance To the Path To Be the Strongest part (Battle Royale style).

    Volume 7 chapters already out and complete by Slowmanga scans. My favorites are Chief's secret and the Battle of the weakling chapters.

    Today release made me finally catch up with Arakawa.
    This is really a great comedy manga. Each time we see start double mask, it makes me laugh thinking at it's first appearance which is one of my favorite gag.

    I'm surprised that not more people are reading this manga. It's pretty damn funny. I wrote about it at: http://www.mangatherapy.com/post/131...utiful-arakawa

    I think it's one of those titles that makes you look at life and realize that we're all absurd in our own little way.

    This is indeed super funny. Plus the anime was done by SHAFT. I <3 Chief and his kappa-antics and his stealthy con in attaining a house.

    I am not sure, but since the anime introduced me to this, I think many were drawn to this manga by the anime, since it might even be done better than the manga. Overall it is a great series, still I place the anime above.

    Re: Arakawa Under the Bridge by NAKAMURA Hikaru

    Sorry I only read the manga. Does everybody has tried Jesus and Boudha by the same mangaka ? I immediatly recognize the humor of Nakamura, though I didn't start it making the connection at first.

    Saint Young Men is a really good manga, indeed, I find this to be more complex though. Even though the similarity in writing and stuff is really the same, as you said you can "feel" that it is the same author.

    I love Saint Young Men. In fact, I like its humor better than Arakawa. But I'm reading Arakawa primarily for the romance and mystery, lol.

    So we can all agree that Hoshi is everyone's favorite character, no?

    My favorite character is Nino. She's so badass. And she's one of the greater mysteries under the bridge. Seconded only by the Kappa man.
