Story

When the three powerhouse creators of Eden of the East, Gurren Lagann and Neon Genesis Evangelion bumped heads, they spawned the series that broke all the rules—then broke the mold.

Naota is a detached sixth-grader afflicted by the pangs of puberty. He’s fooling around with his brother’s ex-girlfriend when a crazed girl on a motor scooter runs him over, brains him with a bass guitar, and moves into his house. This pink-haired girl, Haruko—who claims she’s an alien—hurls Naota into the middle of a mega-corporation’s secret agenda. Oh, and now giant battling robots shoot from his skull. Mix in mind-bending animation and tunes that echo through your cerebellum to top off the trip that will have you falling hard for FLCL.

"Incoherent"

A chaotic mess that attempts to substitute style for substance. Six episodes devoid of meaningful plot and full of gibberish dialogue. How this is a "classic" escapes me.

A truly unique anime with a heartwarming story and a neat sense of style. Forgoing the typical metanarrative story in favor of a more in-depth focus on character development, FLCL is without a doubt a... more

"The craziest thing I have ever watched, and at the same time, one of the most amazing experiences."

Random and crazy are understatements for FLCL. Its weird, its in your face, its loud, its spectacular, its quirky, odd, brilliant, all in just 6 episodes. An anime every fan should at least watch once... more
