NIS Announces the Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge Premium Edition

NIS has announced the upcoming Arakawa Season 2 (Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge) premium boxed set, and we now have it up for pre-order on the store:

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge (Season 2) Complete Collection Premium Edition DVD/BD Combo Set (Eps #14-26)

The set will be released February 7th, 2012.

Just a little trivia: The title of season 2 is pronounced "Arakawa Under the Bridge Bridge". Don't mess up and include the 'x' when you are talking to other Otaku about it. :-)

The Premium Edition will come with a hardcover art book (full-color, 30+ pages), featuring character information, episode guides, artwork, and interviews with cast and production staff. Bonus tracks include commentary from various voice actresses/actors and even the original author, Hikaru Nakamura. These tracks will let you take a peek behind the scenes - it’s a very intimate way to learn how the cast thinks and feels about the characters and events! Also, TV spots and an End Card gallery are included.

Synopsis: Just when you thought things couldn't get any weirder by the banks of the mighty Arakawa, they go ahead and get weirder by a whole lot. Rec, Nino, and the rest of the riverside residents return, and with the addition of another batch of nutty citizens the insanity gets turns up to eleven...thousand. Now Rec has to deal with a sci-fi loving comic nerd who's convinced he's a captain in the Earth Defense Force, and the less said about the Amazon woman living upstream with her demonic "female" Amazon followers, the better. On top of that, Rec struggles with the pressing issues of romantic expression, media obsession, weight loss, weight gain, beach parties, haunted houses, interplanetary travel, and the ever-present threat of global thermonuclear war!
