It's six episodes. The entire series is literally shorter than some moves.
A remake OVA has potential the more and more I think about it, but I also don't want it to shit on the original somehow. Maybe in a decade or so down the line when it begins to show age.

I really think it's neat how Nonon is a throwback to Haruko in regards to her voice-actress and design. And Maybe to Nono in her name and appearance, too. And hell, her Monkey is TTGL.

I wonder if she'll be the obect of any further Gainax-related nostalgia.

It's time for some director commentary.

NOTE: Unless context indicates otherwise "he" refers to the director.


Mamimi's beginning lines in episode 1 are a quote from "Ashita no Joe" (Tomorrow's Joe) a famous boxing manga from the 1960s. Applying it to baseball and getting it wrong establishes her as a bit ditsy.

Tasku and Haruko are left handed, Naota is right handed. The characters have different images depnding on their handedness. And they tried to show that through the series.

Anno directed an adaptation of a girls manga before GAINAX started on FLCL.

The idea of the horns coming out of his head didn't come up until almost through post production, it wasn't even thought of in the first draft. the writer, Enokido, likes to incorporate sexual innuendo so he loved the idea of the horn.

Since the manga scenes are essentially just a conversation between 4 people around a dinner table they wanted a way to make it more entertaining. It was really difficult to do, you can't do that sort of arrangement with cels, and even doing it digitally takes a lot of data, so the people in digital filming told them it would be impossible, but they begged them and finally got it done. After the first episode they asked them never to do it again.

The year FLCL came out was the same year Ichiro went to America, so it was well accepted that good baseball players go to America. In Japan when middle school students are really good at baseball certain famous high schools will scout them. That was the original plan for Naota's brother.

The director has a post card and the picture is a cigarette close up with the words "Joint London" on them, he thought that looked cool so he decided to use it and came up with "Never knows best", he says it means something like: "There is a best way, and not everyone can follow it. No one knows ther best way." He thought it reflected Mamimi's belief that there's no future. That it had a nuance that she's given up on life.

From the beginning he wanted a robot in FLCL no matter what, but as they got started they didn't really need one. The story doesn't really need a robot in it, but since he really wanted one, he thought of a situation where they could use one and made one popped out of his head. He forced it into the show, the writer didn't think they needed it but he (the director) really wanted one so he kept pushing the idea of robots popping out of his head. And Canti was born, not wanting him to like like a typical anime robot so the idea of giving him a TV for a head came to be.


From planning stages to the completion of the 6th episode was 2 years. leaving out the planning it was 18 months.

The Pillows were pretty unknown before FLCL, but they were a veteran band of almost 15 years at the time. The director knew about them and liked them, not wanting a classical music sound for FLCL and not wanting the music to be created he asked them (the pillows) if there was any way they could use their music. They were really friendly (and excited) and said "sure, sure, use it all!" They were so enthused about he he tried to use it all. He wanted to use a lot more of their music but couldn't fit it in.

The Vespa in the credits video belongs to the director, and at the time of shooting did not run, thus why the video is in stop motion.

The fact that Mamimi has time to play a gameboy by herself brings
out the fact that she has no friends.

Takkun (The cat) is done by the same voice as Naota

When Canti eats Naota and turns red, he turns into Naota's idea ofwhat his brother is like.

Ninamori's VA has been in the industry acting since she was 3.

The director thinks the English cast is very close to being as good as the original cast nad he liked the voice they found for Haruko very much.

The voices saying "Furi Kuri" in the middle of episodes are Haruko, Mamimi, and Ninamori.

The fact that Haruko likes spicy food while Naota doesn't is also used to show the difference in their personalities.

The drink packets used in the bedroom scene of the third episode were originally going to be soda cans but the company that made those drink packets said they were going to sponsor the show, so they found a way to add them in. It was very detailed, they took the packets apart and scanned them, then made them in CG. But in the end the company didn't sponsor them.

The song played during the fight in the 3rd episode if commonly played at grade school sports meets in japan.

The cloth that Naota's curry bento was wrapped in had the word Lover (raba) inside a circle (maru), a play on the title of the episode (Maru Raba).

Haruko's uniform in episode 4 is modeled after the Kintetsu Buffalo's uniforms.

In Japan there were murder cases called the "metal bat murders" where a group of children killed their parents with metal bats. It happened just before FLCL started. That's where he got the idea for Naota killing the android in the 4th ep.

The scene where the cat kills the Haruko doll is suppose to show Naota's view of her being sullied, she had quickly become someone he looked up too. Then he found her fooling around with his dad whom he scorns.

Up until the end of the 4th episode Naota had carried around a bat but never swung it, the reason being if he never swung then he would never know his limits. As long as he doesn't swing, he knows maybe if he does there is a possibility he will hit a home run, now he learns it is better to at least strike out swinging than to just let the ball pass you by without even trying. Better to rsik striking out for the possibility of hitting it out.

Mamimi only kept Naota around because he didn't swing his bat, the fact that he did scares and disappoints her, up until now she had controlled the relationship. But if Naota grows up and becomes a man that would swing his bat, he can choose for himself, and he would be in control. For Mamimi this is a bad thing.

As in, it entertained me, but I really couldn't get into it or see why every one of my friends was gushing over it so much. I appreciated the energy of it but, I dunno. It was good for one watching, but might not have been my kind of thing.

But I do have to say that that non-sequitur South Park bit was probably the funniest thing I've seen in an anime series, by Western standards. Also, the music kicked ass of course.

The pigeons in ep 5 are a John Woo reference.

Episode 5 has various obvious "Lupin III" references.

Since FLCL has so many Japan-centeric jokes the creator wasn't sure if it would even be translated to English.

Ninamori was the favorite of the animator, so she gets a new outfit and hair style every scene she is in.

Haruko in a bunny suit sky surfing on her bass is a parody of GAINAX's first project "Daicon V"

The name "Atomsk" came from an American SciFi author, it was the title of his first book.

The time frame for the final episode was too tight so they had to delay the release by a month.

Everyone except Haruko and Kamon's VA had to audition, Haruko and Kamon's characters were designed around their voice.

Haruko's bracelet is one half of a pair of handcuffs, Atomsk is wearing the other half and they react to each other.

The hand that appears over the Medical Mechanica building in the 6th episode is the director's right hand made from pictures and scans.

Mamimi lost her support when Naota left and the kitten ran away, so she literally feeds her hatred to the terminal core, making it grow... In a way Mamimi's hatred puts the city in danger over the entire series.

Atomsk's symbol is the Kanji for "Adult" upside down, hinting at Naota's flawed relationship with the adults in his life.

The sound of the Vespa revving is an actual recording of the director's yellow Vespa.

The first time Haruko calls Naota a kid in episode 6 she meant he was a kid acting like an adult, and he didn't need to be worried about the stuff that was going on, the last time she said it, she was saying that Naota, who is acting like a kid again... He has accepted it. Naota has grown up. Kids who act like kids, and don't pretend to be adults, are actually more adult.

In the shot of the magazine at the end with Mamimi's picture in it, the title of the picture was "Fooly Cooly".

The voice of Myu Myu (Naota's cat) was Hideaki Anno, the director of Evangelion. Anno also did background voices in Evangelion, he didn't want his name in the credits for the role of the cat so it is a "?"

Das it, enjoy.

I like how Canti stayed behind at the end of the series.

I think one of the most enticing things about FLCL is that it gives you a small picture of a bigger story, and forces you to fill in the blanks with your imagination. Where did Haruko and Atomsk coem from? What happens to Medical Mechanica? Where will Haruko go; and really, why should they tell us? It was a coming of age story primarily, and when the protagonist learned his lesson, all the supernatural elements fucked off elsewhere. Save for the one robot housekeeper.

What do you imagine Haruko doing off on her adventures, /a/? Must be quite a galaxy out there,

The fact that it leaves you wanting more is why it's so good. Also best OST.

You finish FLCL, and it's so fucking good you want more; but you also don't because the series is fucking perfect at the length it's at. FLCL really, really hit the nail on the head in terms of what a short anime should be like; it's utterly fucking fantastic. I don't want to jerk it off too much, but seriously.

The only bad things ever said about it are 'I don't get it' and 'lol so randum'. Which are barely even complaints.

FLCL makes me depressed.

I never went through the growing up stage and experienced teenage love. I had sex with hookers in my 20ies, but that was totally different.
I never dreamed of running away or wanted to become an astronaut, I just wanted to be normal and accepted by my peers.
and I never had a brother (or his ex-gf) or a dad to show me how to be a man.

I cant relate to this, sorry. as anons suggested in this thread I agree that this anime is one of the best to recommend to normalfags.

The animation is still really great. The music bounces from really downbeat and melancholy and depressing to uplifting and empowering. The characters are all really fun and play off each other really well. Everything from the music to the animation to the characters has a lot of energy, but they're all in sync with each other to the point where you really can't disassociate them from each other; it's just a very complete and cohesive package.

Sure, there are moments that are really odd and out of control, but I think the creators were less interested in creating a deep narrative and more interested in making this really cool thing that was a culmination of everyone's interests, hobbies, and ideas.

I'm not saying everyone needs to love it (people are more than welcome to hate it) but I think it's a very important piece of animation as a whole.

most things that are overhyped follow this trend anon

I always thought it was half a way to break the fourth wall as a 'that's all folks' to the viewer, and half a way to illustrate that Haruko was still thinking about Naota in a weird way.

Yeah, I think that's another great way to look at it; FLCL is an excellent piece of visual art, independent of any narrative concerns, in the way that "A Bar at the Folies-Bergère" is an interesting picture, fun to look at, even if you don't know shit about Manet or the Impressionist Movement or painting.

>In Japan there were murder cases called the "metal bat murders" where a group of children killed their parents with metal bats. It happened just before FLCL started. That's where he got the idea for Naota killing the android in the 4th ep.

guess Paranoia Agent also took from that

So, I know I know, fuck "muh personal blog" posts. It'll be quick.

There was a party where everyone had to invent a new cocktail. The best cocktail was exempt from paying their share of the alcohol.

Anons, enjoy the "Sex with Haruko" death punch.

2 L Everclear
4.25 L vodka
.5 L Tennessee whiskey
1/2 L peach schnapps
1 pint rum
1/2 L apple schnapps
9 L seltzer or sprite
1 L Sunny Delight® orange juice
1 L triple sec
1.75 L gin
1/2 L DeKuyper® Sour Apple Pucker schnapps
8 L Gatorade
4 bottles white wine
2 containers orange juice

If you can "swing the bat" after drinking a glass of this, you deserve to have sex with Haruko.

Is this a euphemism for getting an erection or do I literally have to hit a pitch with a baseball bat?

Oh yeah, what was the deal with the whole eyebrow thing

>>101366338

He was trying to act mature even though internally he wasn't; this was visibly represented by his eyebrows, at least as far as I could tell.

It's an ideological thing, you can see him try to make Naota do the same thing in later episodes

>>101353086

Not only it is good, but it was spawned by the failure of eva, so many tears that glorious day...
>>
>>101358087
Honestly, probably not.

Minus the Sailor Moon I watched as a kid, I started on Evangelion before watching FLCL on Adult Swim a year or so later. By that point, I had an idea as to what anime is in terms of a medium. FLCL would give a completely wrong impression. A really shitty comparison would be like showing someone who has never watched TV before Bridezillas or something like that. Of course, FLCL is actually good. The problem comes from it being almost a parody.

Honestly, have the person start on something flagship. Eva or Bebop are usually the best choices.

She is an extremely selfish person, but one of the themes of the show is that everyone is selfish. Maybe she's worse, but everyone is bad.

>>101359251
The question was whether she's a bad person, not whether she's worse than you.

It's best to watch FLCL when you're Naota's age and you have an older sibling who recently left. That's how I watched it.
