From Keiichi Arawi, the creator of hit series nichijou, comes a new slapstick comedy series about a penniless college student who moves to a town filled with bizarre people.
Some changes are coming to the CITY—with Ecchan departing for good and Nagumo finally ready to pay Granny back (if she’ll accept the money), things won’t be the same around the neighborhood. Meanwhile, Captain Obina agrees to a soccer shootout with the fate of Gongenyama hanging in the balance, an unexpected prize-winning photograph creates another unexpected celebrity, and even the mysterious creatures living in the sewers don’t know what to make of a bizarre newcomer. Surprised? Don’t be. Everyone should know by now that all bets are off in the CITY!
