Editorial Reviews

Produced by GAINAX (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and animated by Production I.G. (Ghost in the Shell), FLCL takes animation to yet another level. Get ready for this shocking, funny, and right out freaky show about adolescence, expectations and alien intrigue. Naota wants to be normal. But with a talented brother leaving Japan for the US to play baseball, everyone now looks at him a bit differently. His brothers girlfriend is acting strange and now theres an even stranger girl hitting on him.Literally. With a bass guitar. Oh, did I mention the robots that keep springing from his head?

5.0 out of 5 stars GAINAX Masterpiece September 13, 2003
Format:DVD
Simply the most amazing piece of artwork ever developed. From the stylized use of digitized manga to the amazing group of animators that worked on the projects. Tsurumaki's vision and depth is amazing (especially since he is right handed). Oh, and don't forget the amazing fight scenes with some of the most fantastic robots you can imagine.
Watch as Naota finds his way from elementary school to adulthood with the help of Haruko and fights his way through his own feelings to discover that he should just be himself. On the path he has to fight his way through a myriad of amazing Medical Mechanicca robots.
This disk also has my favorite "fight scene" of all time, as Naota finally swings away! The imagery and concept are amazing, and the animation is breathtaking. Couldn't pick better music either - The Pillows' music fits perfectly.
Even though each disk is only 2 episodes, there is also an hour of commentary from Tsurumaki (director) that is nearly as riveting as the show itself. Also, a LOT of the nuances in the show are directed at Japanese culture and the anime biz. Even if you don't understand it all until afterwards, it is still an amazing show.
Buy all 3 of them right now, because you will be begging for more the moment it ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's All In Naota's Head March 29, 2004
Format:DVD
Naota, the young teenager who is the central character in this imaginative series finds himself in the envious position of having two women dote on him. One of these is Ninamori, the young daughter of the mayor of Mabase, and the other is Haruko, an attractive 'alien' who has moved into his house as maid. Or this would be an envious position if Ninamori didn't want him to play the cat in the school play - Puss and Boots. And the perpetually effusive Haruko loves Naota for the space warp between the hemispheres of his brain.
Ninamori has her own problems, a philandering father, a home that is falling apart, and a desperate need to hide her feelings behind a veneer of adult maturity. Like Naota, life has become too complicated and efforts to reign it in wind up creating new monsters that spring unbidden from one's brain. Haruko is that shaman who brings these things to the surface. Whether they be creatures from outer or inner space, we don't know, but like a mad psychiatrist, Haruko presides over their birth and their final demise.
In the second episode on this DVD a baseball game becomes Haruko's metaphor, as she and Naota play on opposite sides in the game. Despite having his brother's bat, Naota seems unable to play, while Haruko, who hits equally well with both bat and base guitar, is apparently the next best thing to Mickey Mantle. Naota's frustration includes not just his failure at sports, but a dark jealousy over Haruko's relationship with his father. He hides behind his powerlessness, unwilling to take any risks, while Haruko keeps telling him that nothing will happen until he swings the bat.
This is possible the zaniest series in modern anime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Television September 2, 2003
Format:DVD
This series is some of the best television you
will find. It is one of the rare times that
the script expects the viewer to be able to
follow a story without conventional plot points
or clichés. The graphic style is refreshing
and unusual. Like "The Prisoner" or "The Singing
Detective" this series is best understood after
viewing the entire series. While there are
some subtle culture references that we in the U.S.
may miss, the story is universal and very human,
despite Anime and Sci-fi trappings.

Format:DVD
After a brilliant first DVD, Gainax, I.G. and Synch-Point makea second that is just incredible to house the 3rd & 4th episodes of this 6 episode OVA series. While the stories through episode 3 provide fun little scenarios with some of the most brilliant, crazed action and music in any anime, they really just boggle the audience while delighting them. But, like any decent story, the writer will put out the pieces, then tie them together, which they do into episode 4 as Hara-haru's history shows up as a human boyfriend working for a central intelligence organization dealing with aliens on earth. Into episodes 5 & 6, on the 3rd DVD are most all of the answers needed to rope up a great excuse to make fantastic anime fun.
Each episode of FLCL has a very strong motif. In episode 3, it is predominantly about 'Puss In Boots' while episode 4 is a great nod to baseball. There is something fantastic to watch in every scene of FLCL. This is not an anime to ignore.

5.0 out of 5 stars GAINAX scores some major points. August 31, 2003
Format:DVD
This series is, in short, a great masterpiece that showcases skill within confusion.
I don't even have the words to describe what you're thinking of buying.
Its a three DVD series, six episodes. Each episode has an english audio track, a japanese, and finally the director's japanese explanation track. It can often be worth rewatching with the director's track going, he explains a lot of japanese nuances.
That is where 90% of the confusion comes from actually. Most of the show makes sense only to a person from japan, because thier culture is so different. the other 10% is from scenes and dialog that actually are intended to cause confusion.
The story is that of a grade school boy growing up....realizing that the most grown up thing he can do is just be a kid (instead of trying to act like an adult).
Its animation is TOP NOTCH, and will often drop your jaw. the audio and soundtrack are awesome. The english dub is actually quite good...but I often find myself also viewing the japanese subbed version.
Do yourself a favor and buy this while you can. the company that distributed this set only printed a limited number of copies due to its lack of marketability. I had trouble finding all three. Buy them while you can.
