Synopsis

The series focuses on Nandaba Naota, a twelve-year-old boy living in the fictional and initially tranquil Japanese suburb of Mabase. Naota lives with his lecherous, perverted father Kamon and his baseball-coaching grandfather Shigekuni at the family bakery and home. He greatly admires his older brother Tasuku, a baseball phenomenon who has gone to the United States to play the game (an unseen character). Naota's daily routine involves going to school, dealing with his brother's sexually frustrated high school girlfriend Samejima Mamimi, and going home. Naota seems to be very frustrated with his life, and in the opening episode is musing about how constrictive and boring Mabase is. This complaint is borne through to the final episode, despite many examples to the contrary. Naota's life is turned upside down in the first episode when he is hit by a Vespa driven by the rebellious free spirit known as Haruhara Haruko, a woman who later becomes his housekeeper, though she may not be what she appears to be.

This was amazing. It should be noted that this series definatly isn't for everyone. If you don't like series that don't make any sense at all, FLCL is not for you. As my friend says, Evangelion is crack, and FLCL is for when crack isn't enough. You can see the point in ep 1 where the writeres threw down the script and decided to drop acid.

The animation and music are amazing, I specifically love "little busters" by the PIllows, and I thought the camera spin around Naota and a girl (i forget her name) that was doen in a style similar to the MAtrix was amazing. The MAtrix style shots is just one of several, often hillarious references to other anime (i.e. Eva and Lupin III), but it also has several references to american pop culture such as a sudden switch to South PArk style animation in episode 5.

This series was done, from what I am aware of, entirely using computer graphics but the CG is used as normal 2D animation. This combination makes an very specific, verry different, smooth animation style.
As for the story.... well I still don't get what was really going on. who cares what is really going on in FLCL though? It's just great, trust me.

My favorite series. This was just really well designed. The story is a little confusing, and seems truncated, but otherwise my absolute favorite
