Subbed BD/DVD combo of 2nd Arakawa Under the Bridge anime slated for February

NIS America (NISA), the American subsidiary of the Nippon Ichi Software game company, announced on Friday that it will release Arakawa under the Bridge × Bridge, the second television anime series based on Hikaru Nakamura's Arakawa Under the Bridge gag comedy manga. The entire 13-episode second series will ship on two Blu-ray Discs and two DVDs with English subtitles on February 7, 2012.

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge follows the lives of new and returning eccentric characters who dwell by the Arakawa Bridge. Rec now has to cope with an Amazon woman and a sci-fi comic nerd who thinks he's a captain in the Earth Defense Force. Rec also struggles with his romantic relationship as the group's antics bring the insanity to an all-time high.

Arakawa under the Bridge × Bridge Premium Edition will include a hardcover art book with collectible slip case, cast and staff commentaries, and other bonuses. The package's retail price is US$69.99.

As a sequel to the Arakawa Under the Bridge television anime, which aired in Japan from April to June 2010, Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge premiered in Japan in October 2010. NIS America released the series' first season in a DVD/Blu-ray Disc combo pack in July.
