Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your head is empty Aug. 25 2011
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Anime can be pretty weird -- just look at series like "Paranoia Agent" and "Boogiepop Phantom." Really weird, sometimes impossible to totally understand.

But for sheer strangeness and kookiness, the winner has got to be "Fooly Cooly (FLCL)." Even as it pokes fun at typical anime, it tells the surrealist story of a very odd coming-of-age, complete with strange plots, oddball characters, and robots sprouting out of a young boy's head.

Naota is a young boy living what he sees as an oppressively dull existance, in a quiet city dominated by the Medical Mechanica building. The closest thing to excitement is fending off the advances of his brother's troubled girlfriend Mamimi.

Then sudenly a girl on a Vespa runs him over, resuscitates him with a smooch, and then bashes him over the head with a bass guitar. That evening, Naota finds that instead of a bump, he has a horn growing out of his head, and no idea what it is or how to get rid of it.

Despite his efforts to avoid her, Naoto's kooky father has hired the crazy Vespa girl, Haruko, as a housekeeper. To make matters worse, his "horn" turns out to be a robot and a giant mechanical hand -- springing out of a channel in his head. And you thought YOU had problems.

The five episodes that follow don't get any more normal, as Naota must deal with the Mayor's daughter getting his strange power, cat ears, more robots, baseball, bombs, the Pirate King Atomsk, seaweed eyebrows, and the interplanetary Medical Mechanica which may or may not be intent on galactic domination. It all clashes in the final episode.

For newbies, "FLCL" is probably the WORST anime to start with.

Great anime, pretty decent transfer to bluray.. unfortunately it has been upscaled from the dvd version.

Recommended a buy, but only if you don't own prior releases of the series (not worth a upgrade from dvd)

5.0 out of 5 stars "FOOLY COOLY!!" July 17 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw FLCL a long time ago and remembered hating it, mainly because I was just starting to get into the weird side of anime. But FLCL was just too weird for me at the time. However, years later, I watched it again and now I love it. It's one of those perfect anime series that I just can't get enough of. Everything about it--the story, the characters, the craziness of it all--is perfect. Only a few people will get this series. After all, this isn't for everyone (is ANYTHING for everyone?).
One of the best things about this series is that while not much really goes on (at least, a standard amount of things goes on at a steady pace), it makes it look like a LOT is going on, and it makes sense of all this chaos (Well, as much sense as a series about a boy who gets randomly bashed over the head by a Vespa woman with a guitar and then somehow gets a portal to an alternate dimension stuffed into his head that enables him to sprout giant robots out of his forehead would). We follow Naota, whom everyone calls 'Takkun', a 12-year-old boy who seems pissed off all the time, and only gets more agitated when a crazy Vespa woman named Haruhara bashes him upside the head with her guitar. He soon realizes he's got a portal in his head thanks to the beating he received, and now he can summon robots, fly around, and even smack a falling meteorite into space with a normal baseball bat (this actually happens). Despite Naota's attitude or Haruhara's obvious abusive/crazy personality or the other strange quirks that would normally make the other characters hated pieces of animation, ALL of these characters are likeable. It's kind of rare to see an anime where EVERY character is likeable in their own way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent edition Feb. 1 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Looks fantastic, sounds fantastic, conveniently all on one disk. Have not really looked at the extras, so can't comment on that. If you like FLCL and don't own a decent DVD copy already you can't go wrong with this.
