Synopsis:

Holding strictly to his family's creed, Kou Ichinomiya has never once, in his life of privilege, owed anything to anyone – that is, until a self-proclaimed Venusian named Nino saves him from drowning in the wake of a dire accident involving Kou's pants. Eternally indebted to the supposed extraterrestrial, Kou moves into her little community under the bridge along the Arakawa river. Ripped from his life of luxury and success, the young Tokyo U graduate now must adjust to his well-appointed hovel, strange new neighbors, and peculiar lover, Nino.

Tales of the Abyss and Arakawa Under the Bridge may not play out plot-wise, but they do have incredible similar main characters. Both Luke and Kou start off as whiney, spoiled rich kids who come into a mature adult hood, and even better, acceptance of themselves as individuals at the end of the series.

Ko and Kyon are in very similar situations: they are both surrounded by a ragtag gang of everything from aliens to egocentric leaderrs. These two protagonsits usualy find themselves in the middle of abnormal to downright crazy situations, and are charged with fixing them, even when they are not the instigators. Both shows are animated well, have a witty and intelegent script and provide both laughter and the ocational touching moment.

If you liked Arakawa's weird yet enjoyable characters then you would like to watch Welcome to the NHK! because both series have some cracked and unique characters who are living isolated from the society. Everything they do is extreme yet you get used to it while wathing these series.
