Arakawa Under the Bridge, Volume 8
Best-selling mangaka Hikaru Nakamura (Saint Young Men) makes her English language debut with this surreal comedy starring a 620-year-old water sprite, a man with a star for a head, a nun, and a samurai who runs a barber shop under Tokyo's Arakawa Bridge.
The heartwarming romantic antics of the river bank denizens–both human and alien–draw to a close in this final volume. Shadowy incidents in the past are brought to light, and each character takes a fateful step towards the future. Nino finally ventures outside, yet is foiled by fowl... Rec goes after her, even though the risk of literal heartbreak is real. Join the gang under the bridge for one last hurrah!
