Matt K. Miller,
Naota is a normal student living with his abnormal father and grandfather. One day, a seemingly insane girl named Haruko blazes in from out of nowhere on her Vespa, wielding an electric guitar with a buzzsaw! Haruko moves in with Naota under the pretense of being a housekeeper, but Naota knows there's something obviously strange about her. To make matters worse, large shapes are growing out of his head, hatching into large monsters that Haruko makes her mission to kill. Who is Haruko really, and what is she after? You won't find out until the end of this bizarre story. Written by
I am not a huge fan of anime, as I have only seen this series, Cowboy Bebop, and Trigun, but this is my favorite.
Set in an urban, Japanese town called Mabase, FLCL is a zany, frenetic, wild, and hilarious look of the events following the arrival of Haruhara Haruko. Naota, the series' main character, says that nothing ever changes in Mabase. It always stays the same. But Haruko is about to shake things up a bit...
Story - 9/10 Although some may be confused and bewildered after a first time viewing, the series presents more than what is shown on the surface. It is fun and fast, and carries the theme of "maturity" throughout. The theme is developed through Naota's experiences with Haruko as he learns what it means to just live life as a kid.
Animation - 10/10 Sporting some of the craziest scenes ever, the quality doens't get much better than this. Frequent style changes can be startling, but help the pace of the story.
Music - 10/10 Is it possible to give a score higher than 10? Well if it is, then the Pillows have won my vote.
Overall - 10/10 This series may cause the "hate it or love it" reaction in many, but I think that it will be more liked than hated. If you are a fan of anime, or want to take a crazy trip through 6 amazing episodes, this is your series.
