When Work Gives You Lemons…

…become a societal outcast!

At least, that’s what the protagonists of our shows, Arakawa Under the Bridge and House of Five Leaves, chose to do. Both shows follow the adventures and mishaps of men who were forced to abandon pedestrian life for a variety of reasons beyond their own control. While I found Arakawas light atmosphere and absurdist comedy fulfilling, kadian1364 was not impressed by House of Five Leaves‘ botched directing and haphazard narrative, though he did enjoy the scenery quite a bit.
