A simple way to describe Arakawa Under the Bridge is that it feels like Bakemonogatari under a different setting.
This should come as no surprise to many people since Shinbou has worked on both of these series. Plus, the elite male businessman, Ichinomiya Kou, is voiced by Kamiya Hiroshi (Araragi from Bakemonogatari and Izaya from Durarara!!). He seems to be the main male seiyuu for many anime projects lately, which is a good thing.
Thus, be prepared for witty/entertaining bantering and don’t expect too much from the animations due to the unique style of presentation. I found the first episode highly amusing and realized I was chuckling to myself during a couple of the scenes.
