Not sure how many people here have watched it here but it is definately one of my favorite animes of all time. It's kind of chatoic, unorthadox, and just plain out weird, but at the same time extremely deep and funny at the same time, and it only lasted SIX EPISODES! How something can be that deep over only six episodes is beyond me. I just watched the entire series on Youtube and it just took a little over three and a half hours. Its weird at first, but then you get used to it and by the final episode it's actually very emotionally moving and leaves you hungry for more. It has this very sexually playful nature about it, but its not trashy, honestly its kind of cute (for lack of a better word). The show may appear to be non-sense on the surface, but the more you watch it the deeper it gets, it also has some of the most-developed characters of anime (which is amazing for only six episodes). If you don't know what it is I'm not exactly recommending to check it out, it's either something you get or you don't. It's pretty twisted so its definately not for everyone.

Well theres my completely unbiased review of the show, tell me what you think about the show.

I remember trying to watch it a few years ago...
I think I was way too immature in the mind to understand it.
I might try to watch it again soon.


I liked it, other than the fact that it confused me beyond belief.
#3
I remember that. According to [adult swim], best anime they have. It was somewhat entertaining, but also a bit too random.

I hate anime, never find it appealing.

Have you ever done this before? It's freakin' sweet! Earlier today, I was bored as hell just laying on my bed. I had an erection, so I started to use my penis as a gear stick and I was pretending I was driving. Has anyone else here ever tired this?

I actually love the show. Drove me insane at first. You know how you start watching a show after it's already started and you're trying to figure out what's going on? Well it's like that every freaking episode. Plus I love the music. The Pillows rock.
#6
I just saw the Pillows in concert about 2 weeks ago. And they played about 3 songs from FLCL. Pretty good show but I was the only foreigner there so I felt outta place

One of the greatest [and shortest-lived] animes ever! I loved it, although it confused me beyond belief. I recently watched it again, though, and now I get it.

i dont really like anime but i actually like this show. i love it how its so random. good stories, good characters, good music, and a Vespa? what more could you ask for in a cartoon?
#12
Did it make any sense whatsoever? Not really.

Was it random as fuck? You bet.


But was it kickass all the same? You bet your ass it was.

FLCL

Here you go, all the episodes neatly packaged into one Google video. Open it up, let it sit for a little while, and then enjoy.

Awesome anime BTW, definitely in my top 5 with Onegai Teacher and Akira.

I like The Pirrows (couldn't resist). FLCL was what introduced me to them.

Ive watched it several times on adult swim, not even sure if they show it anymore. I like that it only lasted six episodes any more and my head would have exploded

I have all of the episodes. I liked the storyline to the series. I didn't really see it as random, I thought it flowed pretty nicely, but that might just be me. It's one of the few animes that I actually like.
#22
i read the first 2 volumes of manga and it scared me. maybe i'll get round to watching the anime sometime. but what do you expect? it is Gainax after all....

oh, and if you like wierd, check out Excel Saga.... its like.... well, nothing else.

I love FLCL, my favorite part is when they all had the pellet guns, that was really funny. I want to start watching it again.
uhhhh, yea

The lead singer of the Pillows can actually speak english without a horrible japanese accent. He can do 'L' and 'R' no problem.

Seriously, you people NEED to watch this.

Yeah, I love that show. I actually found the entire DVD box set with stickers, a headband or something and other **** too. Only $50 at your local Super H-E-B

And FLCL was the only reason I'm getting me a Rickenbacker and Gibson Flying V

Yep, yep. I do.

Except I discovered them after I saw the show.

Back when the first "Guitarist Yu-Gi-Oh Card" thread came around, and someone made a Yoshiaki Manabe card, and I decided to check him out, then I found out about the Pillows.

Then, while searching I saw that they did the soundtrack for the show.


I think the thing that got me into the show, though, was that the girl used a bass as a weapon, and then later the boy used a Flying V.

I haven't saw the series all the way through, but I might just use that Google linkl.

I loved FLCL. It was really the only anime I liked(aside from Bebop and Champloo)

I had actually watched the series so many times I knew almost the entire thing word for word. It really helped me when I started learning Japanese, because I could follow the general story.

There are a few things(mostly a few jokes) that don't translate to English well.
